Weeks after Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., made headlines by calling for a top marginal income tax rate of 70 percent in an interview with “60 Minutes,” her fellow freshman congresswoman, Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., suggested that the rich could pay even more.
“There are a few things that we can do,” Rep. Omar said in an interview with “Through Her Eyes.” “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.”
The article goes on to state the following:
“The one percent must pay their fair share,” she continued.
Rep. Omar mentioned the tax increase as a way to pay for programs like Medicare for All and the Green New Deal being championed by Rep. Ocasio-Cortez.
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) calls for government to raise taxes up to “90%” on the top 1% to pay for the multi-trillion dollar programs Democrats want
Omar says “that’s a place we can start”
In the majority of states, to be in the top 1% of earners one has to make $300-500K per year pic.twitter.com/vlTsZ0PA2z

The 50% increase in defense spending since 9/11 is the reason 9/11 #2 has not occured! A Somali Muslim wearing a hijab, suggesting that we decrease defense spending, would be similar to a Neo-Nazi suggesting to Jews that free healthcare is only a train ride away @MarkSteynOnline

If that is a place to start …. where do we end?

Here’s an idea! Run off everyone that has succeeded in business, that pays the vast majority of taxes. Smart long term play. #diminishingreturns
