But it’s not the price of the new fighter jet or flagship hospital – instead it’s a stamp, a loaf of bread or, most of all, a pint of milk. In 1992, US President George H W Bush, was forced to admit he did not know how much a gallon of milk cost during a debate with Bill Clinton and Ross Perot.

NY state income tax rate: 8.82%
NYC income tax rate: 3.876% TOTAL: 82.696%
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.
