Recently sworn-in Rep. Ilhan Omar doubled-down on her proposed 70% tax hike this week; saying the increase is necessary to “reduce the worst wealth inequality the world has ever seen.”
“We need a #WealthTax,” she tweeted Tuesday. “Most Americans support this to reduce the worst wealth inequality the world has ever seen.”
We need a #WealthTax:
✅Pay Ratio Corporate Tax
✅2% on those worth > $50 million
✅3% on those worth > $1 billion
✅#MarginalTaxRate: At least 70% on income > $10 million
Most Americans support this to reduce the worst wealth inequality the world has ever seen.

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.

OMAR EXPLODES: Rep. Ilhan Omar Says She ‘Chuckles’ When Americans Call Israel a ‘Democracy’
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.”
