Ocasio-Cortez suggests 70% tax on wealthiest to fund climate change plan

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Fires Back At Dance Video Critics With Another Dance Video

"Abolish ICE" moved from an immigrant rights position to a progressive Democratic campaign slogan in the lead-up to the midterm elections and amid massive public outcry over the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" policy at the southern border.

Ocasio-Cortez said she's proud to be labeled a "radical" and responded "yeah, no question" when asked whether President Trump is a racist.

Cooper pushed back, noting that being factually correct is important.

India Bowl Aussies Out Courtesy Kuldeep’s Fifer, Enforce Follow-On
The fourth and final Test at the SCG ended in a draw after the fifth day's play was abandoned due to persistent rain. Australia were forced to follow-on after being dismissed for 300 and made six without loss in their second innings.

These comments did not sit well with Goldberg (above left).

"The president certainly didn't invent racism", Ocasio-Cortez said. "Is she adhering to some standard we don't know about?" "And she's very opinionated, which we like". We like opinionated women.

"But it is very, very hard when people make accusations where you say, you know, the Democrats have done nothing, the establishment of the Democrats have done nothing", Goldberg said.

A sitting Congressional rep (or even rep-elect, as she was at the time of that tweet) should absolutley be called out when they misstate facts when pushing their policy agendas. "[Sen.] Dianne Feinstein wasn't sitting still". Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) as California's first female USA senators, also "wasn't sitting still". "There are a whole bunch of people in the Democratic Party who have been busting their asses to make sure that women get what they need, people get what they need, [and] children get what they need".

Juventus 'monitoring' Arsenal midfielder Ramsey's transfer situation - director
Emery commented on the rumours that Ramsey is close to penning a deal with "The Old Lady". "I don't know", he admitted. Arsenal have opted not to renew the Wales international's contract , which expires at the end of this season.

She continued, "And I just want to throw this out to you". But what Ocasio-Cortez and others are taking issue with is the scale of her scrutiny.

"But you shouldn't threaten people. You could learn some stuff from them". You know, I mean, my femur was shattered.

"How can you say that?" And when you get them wrong, to correct it as quickly as possible rather than trying to justify the error.

When asked flatly if she believes Trump is racist, Ocasio-Cortez said, "Yeah, yeah". Wait 'til they find out congresswomen dance too! Their story was titled, "Conservatives mock Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for college dancing video, everyone else thinks it's adorable". "Dance away (was actually pretty good)". Marginal tax rates, in which taxes increase as income rises, were as high as 90 percent under President Eisenhower, and were above 50 percent up until the second Reagan tax cut. "It's wholly unethical for anyone to work a majority of the year just to give their money to the government". Eric Levitz of NY Mag writes, "In 1980, taxing incomes above $216,000 (or $658,213 in today's dollars) at 70 percent was considered a moderate, mainstream idea, even though wage inequality was much less severe, and supply-side economics had yet to be discredited".

Mammoth task awaits Aussie batsmen on day three at the SCG
They have worked extremely hard for three-and-a-half Tests to get us to where they want us today". Paine lamented a caught-behind appeal he reviewed when Pant was on eight.

Then, following a weird episode in which conservatives attacked her for dancing in a video during college and formerly going by the nickname "Sandy", Ocasio-Cortez made headlines by calling for a 70 percent marginal tax rate on the highest incomes in an interview on 60 Minutes.
