Americans For Tax Reform report that the “Ocasio-Cortez Tax Plan Creates 82.7% Top Income Tax Rate for New Yorkers.” Whoa! Let’s see how many good New York and California (83.30% tax) liberals jump on that train to nowhere.
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. So under this proposal, her constituents would pay a top combined income tax rate of 82.7 percent:
Federal income tax rate: 70.0%
NY state income tax rate: 8.82%
NYC income tax rate: 3.876%
New Yorkers would not be the only ones suffering under the Ocasio-Cortez plan. California taxpayers would pay a top rate of 83.3 percent (70 percent plus the California rate of 13.30 percent).
In addition to this high income tax rate, taxpayers would remain impacted by other taxes including payroll taxes, taxes on capital gains income and dividends, and the death tax.
Yeah…. Changing ‘Old Crazy’ for ‘New Crazy’ is just ‘Plain Crazy’.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez threatened to unleash the powers of the government subpoena on Donald Trump Jr. because he posted a meme critical of part of her socialist dogma – the ‘eat the dogma’ part, methinks. From The DailyWire, “Ocasio-Cortez Threatens To Retaliate Against Trump Jr. Over Meme, Twitter Explodes With Accusations Of Ethics Violations.”
Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez threatened to use the powers of her elected office to retaliate against Donald Trump Jr. on Friday after the president’s son posted a meme trolling her on his personal Instagram account.
“I have noticed that Junior here has a habit of posting nonsense about me whenever the Mueller investigation heats up,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “Please, keep it coming Jr – it’s definitely a “very, very large brain” idea to troll a member of a body that will have subpoena power in a month.”
“Have fun.” She then says.
OK, then. Just for fun. Here’s a few more of our favorite AOC-Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez memes.
Well, sort of. In her own inimitable way. Look. It really doesn’t have to make sense.
