OCASIO-CORTEZ: Those at the ‘Tippy Top’ Should be Taxed ‘As High as 70%’

posted by Hannity Staff - 1.04.19

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez raised eyebrows among fellow Democrats this week; suggesting those at the “tippy top” of the American economy should be taxed as high as 70% to support her massive government programs.

Cortez was speaking with ’60 Minutes’ during an interview set to broadcast this Sunday when she was asked to weigh-in on the projected costs associated with her ‘Green New Deal’ and Medicare for All.

“Once you get to the tippie tops, on your $10 millionth, sometimes you see tax rates as high as 60% or 70%. 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,” said Cortez.

“If that’s what radical means, call me a radical,” she added.

CORTEZ 2020? Liberal Website Wants Constitution Changed so Cortez Could Run for President

posted by Hannity Staff - 12.12.18

Left-leaning online magazine Vox called for a Constitutional change this week that would allow “immigrants, young people, and everyone else” to run for the Presidency of the United States of America.

The article, titled “It’s ridiculous that it’s unconstitutional for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to run for president,” claims “young is better than old” and argues that Cortez would make a better candidate than aging Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden.

“You might worry that a new youthful president is underexperienced (but then again, which president hasn’t been a little underexperienced), but lack of experience is guaranteed to improve with time. Things are as bad as they’ll ever be during the campaign, so voters can judge for themselves without worrying about lurking problems,” writes Vox.

“Besides which, 29 (Ocasio-Cortez’s age) just honestly isn’t that young. People younger than that are routinely trusted with life-and-death situations in a huge array of contexts, ranging from parenting to military service,” adds the author.

CORTEZ CONFUSION: Cortez Cites PARKS, ‘Eating Sandwiches’ as 'Examples of Socialism'

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.21.18

Liberal superstar Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez left American voters scratching their heads this week; bizarrely citing National Parks and eating breakfast sandwiches as examples of Democratic Socialism.

Cortez posted the strange comments on social media after returning from a “few days off” spent at Acadia National Park; citing the nature preserve and “supporting worker-owned businesses” as American “examples of Democratic Socialism.”

Cortez’ comments come just days after she came under fire for banning press and journalists from a series of town hall events; adding the speaking engagements were considered “sanctuary spaces.”
