AOC: Entire ‘Political System’ in US Rigged Against ‘Working People, Young People, Women, People of Color’

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.19.20

Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez stopped by The View Wednesday morning to weigh-in on the 2020 race for the White House; saying the entire “political system” is rigged against “young people” and “women.”

“Our political system is not designed for people like us. They’re not designed for working people to succeed, for young people, for women, for people of color… Rich men are not the center of my universe, working families are,” said Ocasio-Cortez.

 

Ocasio-Cortez ripped New York Billionaire Mike Bloomberg on social media Thursday; calling for “restorative justice” to heal the wounds from “stop and frisk” police procedures.

“Will people get their records expunged? Will young people sucked into the spiderweb of incarceration get their lives back? Unless there is restorative justice, there is no ‘moving on’ from Stop & Frisk. It’s just a billionaire trying to cover up authoritarian & racist policy,” posted AOC.

Rep. Ihan Omar, D-Minn., will also endorse the candidate,” reports Fox News. “In addition, CNN reported that Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., will endorse Sanders as well. It was not immediately clear if Omar and Tlaib will appear at Saturday’s event.”

BAN BILLIONAIRES! AOC Says ‘No Person Should Have a Billion Dollars’ in the United States

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.03.19

Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slammed wealthy Americans on social media this week; saying “no person should have a billion dollars” in the United States of America.

“‘Billionaires should not exist’ does not mean certain people should not exist. It means no person should have a billion dollars. The ascent of billionaires is a symptom & outcome of an immoral system that tells people affordable insulin is impossible but exploitation is fine,” posted AOC on Twitter.

Sen. Bernie Sanders made similar statements last month.

“Billionaires should not exist,” he stated on social media. “There should be no billionaires. We are going to tax their extreme wealth and invest in working people.”

“In order to reduce the outrageous level of inequality that exists in America today and to rebuild the disappearing middle class, the time has come for the United States to establish an annual tax on the extreme wealth of the top 0.1 percent of U.S. households,” Sanders writes. “This wealth tax would only apply to net worth of over $32 million and would raise an estimated $4.35 trillion over the next decade. Anyone who has a net worth of less than $32 million would not see their taxes go up at all under this plan.”

“The tax rate would increase to 2 percent on net worth from $50 to $250 million, 3 percent from $250 to $500 million, 4 percent from $500 million to $1 billion, 5 percent from $1 to $2.5 billion, 6 percent from $2.5 to $5 billion, 7 percent from $5 to $10 billion, and 8 percent on wealth over $10 billion. These brackets are halved for singles,” adds Bernie.
