AOC’s Tax Plan Gets Trashed by One of America’s Most Charitable Billionaires

The hits keep coming for Cortez, who is losing support within her own party as of late.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has given Americans plenty of reasons to question the confidence she carries.

Certainly, AOC is brash and powerful.  She has sprinted onto the scene with the social media skills that only a millennial would understand, and has begun to play the role of precocious progressive smarty-pants on Capitol Hill.

The problem seems to be that AOC nearly constantly has her foot in her mouth, with pie-in-the-sky policies that the rest of Congress scoffs at…regardless of their political designation.

One such subject on which Cortez is being rebuked by the great minds of our nation is her plan to “soak” the wealthy with massive new tax rates, possibly between 70% and 90%.

Microsoft founder, billionaire, and philanthropist Bill Gates has something to say about that.

Bill Gates says he’s fine with the idea of higher taxes for the rich, but plans like the one being championed by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, which target the top income brackets, are too extreme—and could encourage the wealthy to hide their money in offshore accounts.

Gates, in an interview with The Verge, didn’t mention Ocasio-Cortez or her well-publicized tax proposal directly by name, but his focus was clear. While the Microsoft co-founder and world’s second richest man agreed the U.S. could be “more progressive,” he downplayed “extreme” proposals, such as the freshman representative’s plan to raise the top tax rate from 37% to 70%.

“I believe U.S. tax rates can be more progressive. Now, you finally have some politicians who are so extreme that I’d say, ‘No, that’s even beyond,’” Gates said. “You do start to create tax dodging and disincentives, and an incentive to have the income show up in other countries and things. But we can be more progressive without really threatening income generation—what you have left to decide how to spread around.”

For Bill Gates to denounce those who hide money offshore is more than just a bit hypocritical.

A 2015 article from the Seattle Times estimated that Microsoft had moved approximately $108 billion in revenue overseas.

President Trump may no longer work from behind the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t planning something big to keep the MAGA movement alive. Here’s the latest on 45, via Washington Examiner: WEST PALM BEACH, Florida — Former President Donald Trump gave nothing away about his plans for life after the White House as he dined with friends at his golf club on Friday. “We’ll do something, but not just yet,” he told the Washington Examiner as he sat at his regular table in the Grill Room of the Trump International Golf Club. An aide to the former chief executive then swooped in and swiftly, but politely, ended the interaction. CONTINUED: Trump has let it be known that he is considering another run for the White House in 2024. Reports also suggested that he was considering setting up a new party, the Patriot Party, as a vehicle to run for office. He brought a small staff with him to Florida. They are working out of the Mar-a-Lago club as they begin to ramp up operations. Here’s some random noise from anti-Trump, anti-free speech, anti-American Twitter… https://twitter.com/realDailyWire/status/1352735841366335488 https://twitter.com/cabot_phillips/status/1352734530524729344 https://twitter.com/tomselliott/status/1352723083300401152 https://twitter.com/TwitchyTeam/status/1352752362604146689 https://twitter.com/WSJ/status/1349493316468023303

AOC: I Didn’t Attend Inauguration Because I Didn’t ‘Feel Safe’ Around Republicans

UNITY!

If Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez loved history (or her country), she would’ve been in attendance at the inauguration on January 20 – however fraudulent it may be. You’d think someone like AOC would want to see history being made when Kamala Harris was sworn-in as the first female vice president – however fraudulent it may be, also. Instead, the loudmouth from the Bronx decided to push her style of “unity” by saying Republicans are dangerous. Swell. From The Daily Wire: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said during an interview on Thursday night that part of the reason that she did not attend President Joe Biden’s inauguration was because she does not feel safe around Republicans. “You knew that people would ask why you weren’t there,” CNN host Chris Cuomo said. “This was a good cause, from your perspective, of dealing with your constituency. But this was supposed to be a show of force, and unity, and you weren’t there. Explain it.” She blabbered, “Yeah, you know, I think we also had very real security concerns as well, as you mentioned earlier. We still don’t yet feel safe around other Members of Congress and…” VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kfnj-mjqJf8&feature=emb_title
