AOC when asked about Trump's socialism remarks in the State of the Union speech

Quote

    .@HardballChris asked @AOC about Trump tying the "notion of socialism" to the Maduro regime.

    "He feels like he feels himself losing on the issues. Every single policy proposal that we've adopted and presented to the American public has been overwhelmingly popular." @AOC pic.twitter.com/b8zdRuJZ6A

    Ś Hardball (@hardball) February 6, 2019
Quote
    .@AOC: ôEven some with a majority of Republican voters supporting what weĺre talking about. When we talk about a 70% marginal tax rate on incomes over $10 million, 60% Americans approve it.ö

You want to tax those who earn over 5 million dollars @70%?  I'm opposed to an increase in taxes but here's an idea.  When a person reaches an income over 5 million dollars give them a choice.  Pay a higher rate of tax on the amount over 5 million or show/prove/document that income is being invested into the economy somehow, be it reinvested in a business or for charitable purposes.  That way 100% of whatever that rate might be is not looted by the Federal Government first.

She's telling kids to save the planet by skipping meat and dairy and eating a banana, without apparently realizing that our bazillion tons of bananas are all imported via evil fossil fuels. Man, she's a moron. A locally grown grass fed steak probably produces half the carbon of a bunch of imported bananas.

She should ring up the governor of New York and ask him how that higher tax rate on the rich is working out.

I read that yesterday with a smile. I like how he said it was hurting taxpayers, and the only way to help the taxpayers was to further tax the taxpayers.  laugh

Though I did see that he said some blurb about, "I guess if you keep taxing the rich more and more, the rich will leave." Of course I think he was blaming Trump for that, not the fact that property taxes are so high there, nor all the social programs that were counting on those dollars. Kind of a, "Trump caused the rich to see how much we were taxing them at the state level."

Edit: WLJ got in the "Trump's fault" while I was typing.  laugh

Yeah, if AOC truly cared about the poor, she'd be calling for 90%. It's for the children.

I would be curious to see the income of billionaires in this country and see what their actual annual income is.  People always forget that income does not necessarily equal wealth and wealthy people can always reorganize to make their income whatever they need it to be.

Yeah. Like "Income? I don't have any income at all. I just have a pile of gold ingots in a vault in the Cayman Islands."

If the Democrats keep shooting themselves in the foot, maybe we can draft the Dirty Jobs guy to run in 2020.  He'd trounce The Donald in a primary and I think the Ds might get a million or so votes...total, in the general election.

The D's have more illegal votes than that.

Oh man! Here's one time when I like what Nancy Pelosi says (on Bronxy's green deal):

Quote
ôIt will be one of several or maybe many suggestions that we receive,ö Pelosi told Politico on Wednesday. ôThe green dream or whatever they call it, nobody knows what it is, but theyĺre for it right?ö

I can see why Pelosi might be distancing herself from AOC right now:

"Eliminate all air travel and replace with trains" What about the ATC workers you were supporting in the shutdown? Now you want to eliminate their jobs?

"Update or replace EVERY building in the US with green power".

"Economic security for everyone in the US who is unable or UNWILLING to work."

So I guess no farting cows would mean no cows and by extension no pigs no chickens and so on. Guess we all need to start buying vegan cookbooks, right?

We don't need 70 or 90%.  We just need to limit the long term capital gains rate so that the uber rich aren't paying less than their secretaries.

Phase it out at around $100k or so so that people who worked for their money aren't paying more taxes than those that simply got returns from investments.

"Latinos should be exempt from immigration laws"

As I always say, the only immigrants the left seems to think exist are those from South of the border.
