The moron is at it again. $10 million!



So, a marginal tax rate is if you make more than $10 million in one year --which is a pretty good year-- if you make more than ten million in one year, your ten millionth and one dollar gets taxed at 70%," Ocasio-Cortez explained. "


That means if someone busts their arse for an entire year and gross $10 million 70% belongs to the state, Of course after the state income tax and other taxes are subtracted from it.



"By the way, we used to have marginal tax rates, under Republican presidents of 90%, and it was when we experienced some of the greatest rates of economic growth."


So life is apparently good when this nation was ran by racist and sexist, and misogynist's.

Seriously WHAT makes this 'persons' opinion more important than anyone elses?

I retort YOU DECIDE.

I believe you made an honest mistake in your argument.
It’s not 70%of that 10mil, it’s 70% of the tenth mil.

Pro athletes are going to love this idea.
A player finally gets his $15 million per season contract and pays 70% tax on the last $5 million.

Never mind they only get paid that kind of money for a few years and are retired at age 30.

Do not take tax advice from a bartender.

Riffle, or “Every Billionaire Is A Policy Failure” according to his new Twitter handle, was apparently responsible for Ocasio-Cortez’s 70 percent marginal income tax rate on the highest-earning Americans. In response to a Politico tweet reporting the dramatically income high tax proposal, Riffle took personal credit, saying, “Sorry everyone, my bad. I’ll talk her up to 90.”


Don't be fooled.

I don't know what that means or how it relates to the mistake you made in your interpretation on her quote.

It is interesting she chose the $10 million mark.

I wonder why.

I wish they would just want a flat tax for all. People and corporations and no deductions.

If she were to put pen to paper she just might like what she would find at 15%.

Of coarse everyone gets to earn 100$ a day tax free 40 hrs a week.

It means shes lying.

A self professed democratic socialist hates rich people.

The world according TO HER.

There shouldn't be any.

Her policy is to get rid of them.

Why dont these clowns like occasional kotex work on ways to lower spending instead of try to take other peoples money?

She could start by producing a bill to put government employees on social security like the rest of us and how about private healthcare plans that are paid 80/20.

No more lifetime golden parachutes for senators.

Who am I kidding, its easier to just point fingers.

She might be lieing; but that doesn't excuse you from miss representing what she has said. You could however prove that what she said is a lie.

Assuming she is lieing (which you have not proved) ...

... In every system there are extream (outermost) view points; even if she would like to strip all billionaires of their money does not mean she will get what she wants. She still has to work with in a system with a lot of different voices ... one where the billionaires have a dispretionat influence.

How ever if the billionaires really do fear that the government is going to tax their income away they could be proactive and begin to help solve the problems in the country that leads to the call to tax their income away. People and industries always look to self regulate as a means to stop the government from regulating them.

Voluntary government service.

I have never agreed to pay em a salary much less i do not have concerns for their health. Healthcare sounds like a personal problem. At least that is basically how they treat me.

Doesn't make one GD bit of difference if it's the first or tenmillionth.

It's unconstitutional, and quadruple taxation.

www.abovetopsecret.com...


First income tax.

Second income tax.

Alternative minimum tax.

Medicare Capital gains surtax.

So the question IS.

Why do people like Cortez keep trying to EXPLOIT a minority?

en.wikipedia.org...



The alternative minimum tax (AMT) is a supplemental income tax imposed by the United States federal government required in addition to baseline income tax for certain individuals, corporations, estates, and trusts that have exemptions or special circumstances allowing for lower payments of standard income tax.

Anyone care to answer why Cortez and her ilk are so BIGOTED?

It means she has no idea what she's talking about.

Have you ever listened to her speak? It's absurd she managed to get elected to congress.

Apparently it's not set in stone, and is quite easily amenable.

As a sapiosexual she gets more cringe-worthy daily...

At first I found her somewhat attractive. Then she opened her word hole... And continues to prove our educational system is trash. This it what a degree in economics looks like?

No wonder so many collage graduates work at bar's...
