Proud American and former Republican Governor Scott Walker (WI) lost his race in November to…I don’t know…some Democrat.
Who cares about the guy’s name?
Walker sent a tweet on Tuesday highlighting the reaction of fifth graders after he explained how taxes worked.
Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), who was somehow elected despite being a known Democrat Socialist who is not fond of the Constitution, decided to respond to Walker with a very condescending tone.
Explaining tax rates before Reagan to 5th graders: “Imagine if you did chores for your grandma and she gave you $10. When you got home, your parents took $7 from you.” The students said: “That’s not fair!” Even 5th graders get it.

Explaining marginal taxes to a far-right former Governor:
Imagine if you did chores for abuela & she gave you $10. When you got home, you got to keep it, because it’s only $10.
Then we taxed the billionaire in town because he’s making tons of money underpaying the townspeople. https://t.co/Wcnn2sEgek

She’s just the worst.
Also, did AOC just suggest that people of a certain income shouldn’t pay taxes at all?
Yeah, that’s going to calm tensions!
Ocasio-Cortez talks a big game, but doesn’t know how to back it up.
From New York Daily News:
ALBANY – The campaign for new Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who has made helping the working class and poor her top priority, was fined by the state for not carrying workers’ compensation coverage for a month last year.
“The employer did not have the required workers’ compensation coverage from March 31, 2018, to April 30, 2018, and was issued a final penalty of $1,500, which was paid,” state Workers Compensation Board spokeswoman Melissa Stewart said. “This coverage is vital to ensuring workers are protected for on-the-job injuries.”
GOP spokeswoman Jessica Proud: “Hypocrisy at its finest. The so-called champion of workers, when given her own responsibility, is not following the law. It’s unbelievable.“
Ocasio-Cortez believes President Trump is a racist.
Based on what?
Ocasio-Cortez: “The president certainly didn’t invent racism, but he’s certainly given a voice to it and expanded it and created a platform for those things.”
“When you look at the words that he uses, which are historic dog whistles of white supremacy. When you look at how he reacted to the Charlottesville incident, where neo-Nazis murdered a woman, versus how he manufactures crises like immigrants seeking legal refuge on our borders, it’s, it’s night and day.“
Ocasio-Cortez wants to be known as a “radical.”
She made that clear in her “60 Minutes” interview.
While speaking with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, AOC called for a 70% tax on America’s highest earners.
Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal” aims to eliminate carbon emissions within 12 years. Speaking about the ambitious goal, Ocasio-Cortez says, “It’s going to require a lot of rapid change that we don’t even conceive as possible right now. What is the problem with trying to push our technological capacities to the furthest extent possible?”
AOC: “You know, you look at our tax rates back in the ’60s and when you have a progressive tax rate system, your tax rate, you know, let’s say, from zero to $75,000 may be ten percent or 15 percent, et cetera. But once you get to, like, the tippy tops, on your 10 millionth dollar, sometimes you see tax rates as high as 60 or 70 percent. That doesn’t mean all $10 million are taxed at an extremely high rate, but it means that as you climb up this ladder you should be contributing more.“
It is going to be a long two years covering Alexandria.
She’s young. She has ideas.
Unfortunately, she’s too young to understand that her ideas are ridiculous.
Her latest Trump-bashing effort hits the administration for “starving out” Puerto Ricans.
From Daily Caller:
Democratic New York Rep-Elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez amplified her criticism of President Trump’s handling of Puerto Rico’s recovery in a late-night tweet on Friday.
The White House is starving out the island of Puerto Rico by denying the disaster recovery funds it needs.
First went the schools. Now, women are going missing across the island.
If we let this to happen to some Americans, what prevents it from happening to others?To all of us? https://t.co/6jhuOYQhao

Check out how she botches the story of Jesus’ birth in defense of refugees:
Joy to the World!
Merry Christmas everyone – here’s to a holiday filled with happiness, family, and love for all people. 🌎(Including refugee babies in mangers + their parents.)

Luke 2: 1-6 says:
And it came to pass in those days that a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered. This census first took place while Quirinius was governing Syria. So all went to be registered, everyone to his own city. Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, to be registered with Mary, his betrothed wife, who was with child. So it was, that while they were there, the days were completed for her to be delivered.
Joseph went with Mary to Bethlehem to register for the census. They weren’t refugees.
Alexandria claims the Pentagon lost $21 trillion.
$21 TRILLION of Pentagon financial transactions “could not be traced, documented, or explained.”
$21T in Pentagon accounting errors. Medicare for All costs ~$32T.
That means 66% of Medicare for All could have been funded already by the Pentagon.
And that’s before our premiums. https://t.co/soT6GSmDSG

There’s a huge problem with AOC’s math:
Wow. You claim $21 Trillion in Pentagon Waste? The entire Pentagon budget from 1789-2018 has totaled $18 trillion,
Come on, This is embarrassing. https://t.co/ezdhqWQFyc

The numbers just don’t add up, Alexandria.
Just like a Democrat Socialist, isn’t it? Pulling money from out of thin air!
This is a wild misinterpretation of the Nation article. A key point of the article is these reported amounts do not reflect the Pentagon’s actual spending behavior. https://t.co/O3w6m1kBdV

Her one tweet about $5.7 billion for the border wall might just be the joke of the year, considering all the sudden she cares how the government spends money.
And just like that, GOP discovers $5.7 billion for a wall.
What if we instead added $5.7B in teacher pay?
Or replacing water pipes?
Or college tuition/prescription refill subsidies?
Or green jobs?
But notice how no one’s asking the GOP how they’re paying for it. https://t.co/jXdm1w9bpy

In case AOC wasn’t clear, she thinks it’s wasteful to spend taxpayer dollars protecting Americans.
Does she really think a whopping $5 billion is a lot, compared to how much she wants to spend?
