This is also tied to the ludicrous "Green New Deal" proposal...

Ocasio-Cortez suggests individual tax rates as high as 70%




Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is drawing attention Friday for suggesting that the wealthiest Americans ought to pay a tax rate of as high as 70% in order to fund a “Green New Deal.”


She's using very technical terms such as "tippy tops" too, very impressive start to her new career:



“You look at our tax rates back in the 60s, and when you have a progressive tax rate system, your tax rate, let’s say, from $0 to $75,000 may be 10% or 15%, etc. But once you get to the tippy tops, on your 10-millionth dollar, sometimes you see tax rates as high as 60% or 70%.”


Welcome to dystopia, where Americans are calling for socialism and government-administered wealth redistribution!

Thoughts?

Very few paid those exorbidant tax rates so they were pointless.... second, this dimwit doesn't know the difference between income and wealth. The uber rich like the tech titans and people who are worth hundreds of millions and billions don't really have "income" hence they'd be unaffected.

She'd wind up taxing the bejezus out of doctors, lawyers, and businessmen who are basically the "working rich".

What is hilarious is this brainless broad was complaining she didn't make that much as a congresswoman, yet the congressional salary of $174,000 puts here in about the top 2.5-3% of wage earners in the country.

Someone should ask Ms. Cortez who would choose to continue to work in a country that taxes you 50-70 percent.

She’s the gift that keeps on giving!

She might single-handedly get trump elected in 2020.

And this is why it urked me that people were blatantly making stuff up about her.... You don't have to.

No reason to spend time and effort in digging her grave when she'll do it for you with her policy.

I would like to suggest something for her.

Best response I've heard yet. Don't try to tell the millennials/"democratic" socialists that. They don't like facts!

Exactly!

Remember, she also just suggests borrowing whatever money she cant raise to pay for her Green New deal, which will give the goivernment total control over our energy sector, economy, and many other aspects of life.

Can we finally admit "democratic socialism" is just socialism?

That's awesome. In NYC that comes to a tax rate of 82%. I'm sure the Uber Rich of New York don't mind only keeping 18% of their income.

It will be 83% in California too.

.......it's for the greater good.

Raising taxes alone is not enough. Something has to be done about restoring the free-market so we have competition to wring out inefficiencies in exorbitant CEO compensation packages. Plus free-markets would increase wages and lower retail cost of goods and services.

I'm not sure raising taxes back up to 70% would do anything about this which is the real problem:

Purchasing Power of the Consumer Dollar

It really doesn't matter what we pay in taxes. What DOES matter is the purchasing power of the worker making the median wage. As money gets concentrated into fewer and fewer hands it becomes worth less and the economy contracts.

It should come as no surprise that the majority of this board doesn’t understand tax policy.

Yes she can lead the way by paying 70% of her income to the government; that would be about $121,000 of her income, leaving her with A very liveable $53,000.

Oh thats right, she is another one of those progressive socialists that thinks everyone else but her should have to pay.

Why stop at 70 percent? Why not just take it all?
People dont need any more than, say, 100 grand a year.
Yep. Thats enough. Anything over that, just take it.

Democratic socialism is socialism but with a lacy dress. Underneath that dress are jackboots. Democratic Socialism is a contradiction in terms.
