posted by Hannity Staff - 2.04.19

Rep. Ilhan Omar doubled-down on her proposed tax hike over the weekend; saying a marginal rate of 70-92% on wealthy Americans is a “necessary tool” to finance Medicare for All, the Green New Deal, and student-loan debt forgiveness.

“The #MarginalTaxRate is nothing new. For much of modern history, the rate has been between 70-92%. With wealth inequality at an all time high, this is a necessary tool to lift millions out of poverty, fund #MedicareForAll, a #GreenNewDeal, and cancel student debt,” she tweeted.

Rep. Omar made national headlines Monday after video surfaced of the legislator telling a journalist that global terrorism was a response to America’s “involvement in other people’s affairs.”

Recently sworn-in Congresswoman Ilhan Omar found herself in hot-water Thursday over renewed accusations of anti-Semitism; saying she routinely “chuckles” when Americans refer to Israel as a Democracy.

Omar was speaking during a recent interview when she was asked to comment on her previous comments that the Jewish State has “hypnotized the world.”

“We still uphold it as a democracy in the Middle East I almost chuckle because I know that if we see that any other society we would criticize it, call it out,” said Omar. “We do that to Iran, we do that to any other place that sort of upholds its religion. And I see that now happening with Saudi Arabia and so I am aggravated, truly, in those contradictions.”

Recently sworn-in Rep. Ilhan Omar called for a staggering 90% tax rate on high-income Americans this week; saying “we can increase the taxes that people are paying who are the extremely wealthy in our communities.”

The progressive politician was speaking with women’s rights activist Zainab Salbi when she was asked how she and other liberal lawmakers plan to pay for their massive entitlement programs and other liberal policies.

“There are a few things that we can do… One of them, is that we can increase the taxes that people are paying who are the extremely wealthy in our communities. So, 70 percent, 80 percent, we’ve had it as high as 90 percent. So, that’s a place we can start,” said Omar.
