I want to hear less about this clown and more about the suffering of the people of Venezuela, who elected similar scumbags and are now starving because of it. She scares me because she and her kind will kill millions of us. They literally always do, but they never learn because they make sure that they're okay.

Socialism is a murderous sickness of the mind, and the graves of tens of millions bear testament. We cannot forget that or their sacrifice was for nothing.

She's not the problem. The problem is her electorate!

The voting age should never have been lowered EXCEPT for active military personnel. Damn the democrats!

The Green new deal from AOC.
I wonder who/what entity was behind developing the rules change document for this "Green New Deal", certainly not Alexandria (she supposedly has a BA in international relations with a minor in economics).

Is there something wrong with paying 62% Of your income to taxes? I’m sure most Americans would be OK with that :biggrinjester:

62% I thought it was 70%, so in New York you would be paying like 83%. No one would ever mind that.

BTW during the administration of Jimmy Carter the highest US personal federal income tax rate was 70% for income over around $100,000 for a joint return.

Regan changed all that.

In 1944-45, “the most progressive tax years in U.S. history,” the 94% rate applied to any income above $200,000 ($2.4 million in 2009 dollars, given inflation).

Schlichter nails Alexandria Ocasio-Castrowannabe again....
Attack her for what she wants. Accept her challenge. Her whole premise is that she is a lil’ lady demanding respect from us meanies and we aren’t giving it to her because we’re jerks. Give it to her. Let her speak.
They did on “60 Minutes.” And she whiffed.

She wants a 70% top rate? In the big liberal states like California and her own New York, that means an 80%+ rate. People notice that, including liberal people. Even the lonely divorced teacher with cats and a twist-top Chardonnay jones who represents the Democrats’ base is going to balk at paying four-fifths of her paycheck. If it’s money for welfare cheats or her cats, Fluffy wins.

Ask her about that.

A green new deal? So, there go all those coal jobs that just came back. There goes America’s energy supremacy, which is just within reach. Oh, and here comes…more taxes. Limits on SUVs. Higher utility bills.

Ask her about that.
The left lies about everything. Truth is a liberal value, and truth is a conservative value, but it has never been a left-wing value. People on the left say whatever advances their immediate agenda. Power is their moral lodestar; therefore, truth is always subservient to it. - Dennis Prager

Every day gets better. AOC thinks congressional salaries should be furloughed during shut down.

But her name is not on list to not get a check.

If you read the article carefully, you'll notice she says "NEXT TIME there is a gov't shutdown, salaries should be furloughed".

Free healthcare for the poor, for the illegals, but just not for her employees. Fined for not carrying workers compensation on her campaign workers as required by NY law.

Laws are really only for other people, not lawmakers.
