Alexandria O’commie-Cortez showed up to the Met Gala wearing a white dress with red letters that read: TAX THE RICH. This is a woman who earns $170,000 taxpayer dollars annually to lie to the American people – not to mention whatever else she’s making (or will make) from book deals and whatever else.
She wants the rich taxed sky-high, that much is clear. But don’t include her in that group, y’all!
From Daily Wire:
Far-left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on Tuesday informed her Instagram followers that she’s not one of the wealthy people she wants taxed, following criticism that she herself is “rich.”
“What do you say to people who argue that you’re also rich?” an Instagram user asked AOC. The Democrat earns more than $170,000 annually and owns a $35,000 Tesla.
“This is the trick people use all the time, right?” the representative responded. “They want you to think that when we talk about rich, we’re talking about a doctor or a lawyer instead of someone with hundreds of millions of dollars, if not billions of dollars. That’s what we mean by ‘rich.’”
Of course, Democratic proposals and legislation increase and levy taxes on individuals and business owners who earn far less than “hundreds of millions of dollars” or “billions of dollars.”
The question to AOC was raised in the wake of the congresswoman wearing an emblazoned “Tax the Rich” dress to the Met Gala, where tables could reportedly cost more than $275,000 and individual tickets are priced at around $30,000.
