If AOC cared about taxing the rich she would have protested the Met Gala, instead she joined the party.
Who even cares about taxing the rich at this point. Just take all their stuff. Plan the economy. Fix all the problems. It's 2021.
Time to drop the idea that Biden's tax hikes on the rich are radical. They're a recalibration of a system that was already badly skewed for the rich. It's doubly galling that some Ds say taxing big inheritances will hurt family farms.
How much would taxing the rich raise over 10 years?
Wealth tax: $2.75T
Funding IRS: $1.75T
Taxing Wall St trades: $777B
Repealing Trump tax cuts: $500B
Raising top tax rate by 1%: $123B
Eliminating loopholes: $119B
Total: $6T. Nearly double the cost of the reconciliation bill.
Instead of taxing the rich why don’t we cut off every single penny of foreign aid. We are a debtor nation. The time has long passed since we can afford it.
This morning's rant from @JoeNBC
on economic justice and the importance of taxing wealth is precisely what my soul needs to hear right now. And what Congress needs to hear every day. #WealthTax
Attacking AOC for attending the Met Gala misses the point a bit. She attended to push the message of taxing the rich and to interrupt the discussion of the gala’s fashion with her political message.
"Taxing the rich" isn't about people making $174k a year. LOL. It's not even about taxing millionaires. It's about taxing billionaires and corporations, who often times pay no taxes at all. It's mind boggling that this basic fact is lost on so many people. SMH.
Can you afford a doubling of the GST?
Apparently, besides taxing the sale of your home, @JustinTrudeau
might double the GST.
You didn’t think all this money he’s been handing out was for free did you?
Get ready. If you vote Liberal - you’ll have to sell your home.
Please explain how telling the rich to "tax the rich" accomplishes taxing the rich.
Also, she went with a message of taxing the rich in a room filled with rich people.
Why not attack politicians who are doing NOTHING? People would rather eat those they are in proximity to than those causing the most harm.
I’m fully okay with taxing the leftists that attend the #MetGala at 90-100%.
but i hear somebody at the event mentioned taxing the rich so i guess it was worth this brutality for that https://t.co/4HrfZoHLLw
Watching Rosie with JT, she is giving Trudeau an opportunity to make small speeches that are not challenged at all like the promise of cutting child care in half by next year, Rosie is again using a night to spin Trudeau, it looks rehearsed, no one mentioned taxing our homes 🏡
Taxing the rich is great, but stripping members of Congress of their wealth made from insider stock trading would be cool too.
Maybe throw that in the tax the rich bill?
My thoughts on the AOC's gala dress too. We're way past taxing. Get your forks and plates ready! https://t.co/gLDqmwYyRS
The most practical argument for D's wimping out on taxing billionaire heirs: Would create a huge ticking bomb for billionaires that they would devote decades to defusing by any means necessary. Which R's will likely do as soon as they win, which they will in that timeframe.
Stop taxing the high earning and find a way to tax wealth you stupid fuckers.
Taxing income only entrenches the American oligarchs who live on assets https://t.co/6ZFpmy1aPG
Maybe, if you already thought taxing the rich is a good idea, that dress’s messaging wasn’t intended for you?
Cheri Bustos is an incredible legislator from Illinois who also barely squeaked by in her district. Club for Economic growth (Right-wing Pac) scaled her at 9% of voting with their ideology.
AOC: 33% of their ideolgy.
Who's legislating on taxing the rich?
I just got back from Vail where the entire town is 5 million dollar second homes. Instead of taxing unproductive wealth we tax the income of doctors, lawyers, executives. What makes more sense? Taking 40% of someone’s 300k salary or an extra percent on someone’s 100m estate
AOC speaks the language of truth. No matter how big and powerful she gets, she stays with the truth.
Taxing the rich will massively help the working class and poor people of the US. And the good news is, the rich will still be rich.

"It is clear there is an irreconcilable divergence between the policies of the UK and Scotgovs. One is seeking to nurture a recovery for all, and the other happy to build that recovery on the backs of the people who have already sacrificed the most."
I find it fascinating & telling that so many of the people who claim to be concerned about taxing the rich are praising her for wearing this gown but aren't even discussing the hard work being done by Richard Neal & others right now to actually tax the rich.
ultimately.. boycott = no attention ->no press ->no change.
statement dress = a lot of press -> controversy -> discussion.
Now everyone is talking about the dress. But wether good or bad, everyone is talking about taxing the rich sooo 🧚🏻
