CORTEZ 'CHANGED THE ENTIRE DEBATE ON TAX' IN A 'MATTER OF DAYS' USING SOCIAL MEDIA, COS POINTS OUT
Newsweak ^ | 2/03/19 | JASON LEMON

Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Chief of Staff Saikat Chakrabarti has praised his boss’s use of social media and communication, pointing out that she “changed the entire debate on tax in this country in a matter of days.”

“She’s good at communicating and she’s good at taking a message and actually educating people and getting people to realize how these very complex policies work,” Saikat told CNN’s Reliable Sources on Sunday.

The progressive 29-year-old representative from New York, who refers to herself as a Democratic Socialist, has pushed for a significant increase on income tax for the wealthiest Americans. Under her proposal, American taxpayers would be taxed at 70 percent on every dollar they make beyond $10 million in any given year. Ocasio-Cortez, her supporters and economic experts have pointed out that the idea is actually conservative compared to policies that were widely supported by Republicans and Democrats in the 1950s and 1960s, when top earners were taxed at more than 90 percent.

She’s a lot better at tweeting about taxes than paying them.

Coveting your neighbors things is a high order error, in all major religions

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thou_shalt_not_covet

4:32: Do not covet the bounties that God has bestowed more abundantly on some of you than on others.(Qur’an)

You shall not covet your neighbor’s house. You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.(Exodus 20:17)

The Democrats have become a covetous abomination

It’s amazing that someone who is no smarter than the average 5 grader is getting microphones shoved into her face to pontificate on every one of her thoughts.

She’s an empty bag, no smarter than the illegal alien that used to live in our White House, and yet we have every single word she says shoved into our faces every day. Amazing.

Their entire history is about making fantasy become reality through language.

What they don’t realize is none of it ever made the full transition, even though some of it looked like it did.

AOC is UNABASHEDLY NAIVE. She feels NO SHAME in being totally IGNORANT. For this reason ALONE she should be IGNORED by everyone but today it seems to be a fad.

This female (notice I didn't say "woman") should be at home knitting sweaters.

She's... educating people? I don't think the word means what Saikat thinks it means.

“4:32: Do not covet the bounties that God has bestowed more abundantly on some of you than on others.(Qur’an)” This from a man who was a professional thief. The false profit made his living robbing tribes across Arabia and even his own men wanted to rebel against him because he was taking too much of the stolen bounty for himself. What a joke, an evil joke.

No. No she didn’t.

She said a lot of asinine and idiotic things that the press desperately wants to believe.

RATS aren’t smart enough to understand the business model of a lemonade stand
//////////////////////////////////
What’s for Ocasio to understand? A few years ago:
“Say Daddy, I want to open a lemonade stand.”

Daddy pays for the professionally made promotional signs, leaflets bought from a local printer,custom built white and yellow wooden stand, matching umbrella top, an electric ice maker machine ,a small refrigerator, juicer and lemons ,sugar,pitchers and cups with a logo and her name on them. He calls a dozen business associates and neighbors about the lemonade stand.
She opens it and makes money every day in the summer.

“Look at all the money, daddy.”
“Yes, dear, you are a good business woman. You’ve learned a lot this summer.”

Saying: Socialism works until they run out of other people’s money.

“”She’s good at communicating and she’s good at taking a message and actually educating people and getting people to realize how these very complex policies work,””

Is he going to tell us when we can stop laughing? Who are these “people” he’s talking about? Her voters? That’s good for another laugh as if they understand anything she’s saying!
