Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Responds to Fox Business Guest Calling Her 'The Little Girl'

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Responds to Fox Business Guest Calling Her ‘The Little Girl’

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez responded today to a comment from Lou Dobbs guest Ed Rollins about her on Fox Business last night.

Dobbs and Rollins were discussing Rashida Tlaib‘s “impeach the motherfucker” comment when Rollins said this:

“We have an enormous class of women who have been elected… Some really interesting people and some really smart people. If you’re gonna put her out front, with her mouth, when she now has the attention she’s never had before, and you’re gonna put the little girl who wants to do pre-Reagan economics and 70% taxes, the Democrat women are gonna basically be damaged badly.”

The “little girl” he’s talking about is Ocasio-Cortez, who has floated taxing the super-wealthy up to 70% to pay for a “Green New Deal” proposal.

@AOC

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Retweeted Andrew Lawrence

GOP loves to insult my intelligence, yet offers *this* as their best + most seasoned opposition to my policy proposals.

If anything, this dude is a walking argument to tax misogyny at 100% 😉

Republicans rob everyone the opportunity of real policy debate by resorting to this.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez added,

4. 70%. That is pretty steep

But it should be enough to fund apartments for members of the house.

6. Note that they want us to think it's 70% for EVERYBODY.

It’s 70% for the obscenely wealthy so the rest of us don’t have to shoulder so much of the burden.

21. Yes and everytime the media notes the rate without the word "marginal" in front of it, they

are enabling misinformation.

7. That was once the norm for the super rich and

The mega wealthy even hit a 90% tax rate. It worked, then the aristocracy found a willing stooge in senile Reagan to gift them with reduced taxes.

20. And they never explain marginal tax rates.

So the mindless think they want to tax the rich at 70% of ALL their income and not that over whatever millions of dollars the top rate would be.

26. Filthy assholes, both of them. I want to see polling on this tax idea, if it polls good

I say go for it, if it doesnt maybe reduce the 70 to 50 and then poll again.

The filthy assholes I refer to are of course the men you mentioned, the fox traitor filth

28. It will be required Obviously.....

For her to respond to anything and everything, it appears. (This will get old soon. - If as a Public Official -- if this is the norm, she will be responding back to everything over doing the job of crafting and supporting legislation).
