Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: 'No question' President Donald Trump is racist

Alexandria Ocasio Cortez

"New York State has a top income tax rate of 8.82 percent while New York City has a top rate of 3.876 percent", ATR.org's Alex Hendrie noted.

Anderson Cooper on "60 Minutes" asked the freshman lawmaker whether she now views her comment as an abuse of power.

Buried in the Wikipedia article, readers can find the answer: "Ocasio-Cortez was also an educator at the nonprofit National Hispanic Institute. Newly unearthed video reveals that when @AOC was in college, she was ... adorable", The Washington Post's Karen Tumulty tweeted. John Lewis wasn't sitting still.

"How can you say that?" he asked Ocasio-Cortez.

His tweet included a link to an article that described Ocasio-Cortez specifically calling for the tax hike to fund programs in a Green New Deal. But The New York Times, GQ, Newsweek and Ocasio-Cortez, among others, were quick to falsely claim that conservatives were somehow upset by the harmless video.

You look at our tax rates back in the '60s and when you have a progressive tax rate system. That rate then gradually dropped, the rate lead to a stall in the USA economy that Reagan corrected. For example, before the 1980s, high marginal tax rates were the norm, and Ronald Reagan helped shift the mainstream discourse to the right. But despite their name, these taxes are ultimately paid by workers and therefore come in just like personal income taxes do when measuring how much a unit of labor is being taxed.

Ocasio-Cortez doesn't favor imposing a 70 percent tax on the merely rich. "Who makes these decisions? How?" Bill Clinton ran on conservative economic orthodoxy, as the supposed story of his political genius at the time was yanking the Democrats to the right on economics. "It requires risk to try something new, but also we ― we know so much of ― of what we've tried in the past hasn't worked, either". After the wealthiest saw their tax rates go down they began to accumulate a vast, and unequal, majority of the country's wealth.

A threat to the profit motive?

A 70% top marginal tax rate is extremely normal in the context of the 20th century. While it may seem "radical", zooming out even to recent US history proves that it is far closer to the norm than our current low-tax era. "It's wholly unethical for anyone to work a majority of the year just to give their money to the government". But that may be looking at the wrong question.

Ocasio-Cortez's tax proposal suggests taxing income above $10 million at 70 percent.

Is Rep. Ocasio-Cortez afraid of making enemies? No matter how "woke" or liberal the man may seem, there is always a palpable undercurrent of condescension in these conversations, more so if the woman is young and a Person of Color.

Using the Adobe Premiere video editing app, Rodgers layers the original footage of Ocasio-Cortez dancing to "Lisztomania" by French band Phoenix onto Ocasio-Cortez (known affectionately as "AOC") dancing to dozens of different pop songs. "That is not - that is not dignified", Ocasio-Cortez said. When you can't have health care.
