On Sunday, she'll be profiled on 60 Minutes, where she will talk about her green agenda for zero carbon emissions, which may even mean a top tax rate of up to 70%.
Ocasio-Cortez also questioned why the Post gave "my confusing tweet" on military accounting offsets the same number of "Pinocchios" as Trump's denial of the number of Americans that died in hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico. "It requires risk to try something new, but also we know so much of what we've tried in the past hasn't worked, either". Again, there is no real plan.
She referred to the progressive taxation system that was in place in the 1960s before Ronald Reagan took office as president when the top earners paid 70 percent in taxes.
Edward Wolff, a tax expert at New York University, put it this way to the Post: "You can get a hell of a lot of a money from taxing the 1 percent".
Paul Krugman, the Nobel Prize-winning economist and New York Times columnist, pointed out that these high tax rates, though astronomical compared to today's levels, were routinely applied to the highest earnings of the wealthy in "the United States, for 35 years after World War II - including the most successful period of economic growth in our history".
"We only ask how we pay for it on issues of housing, health care, and education", Ocasio-Cortez said.
But don't question Ocasio-Cortez.
Tsitsipas in 'love' with Sakkari after beating Team Switzerland
Federer, who also beat Zverev in 3 sets in last year's Hopman final, clinched the match with a typically crisp forehand volley. But in the end, the experience and athleticism of Kerber proved just enough to seal the match, 7-6 (6), with a final victor .
Los Angeles Chargers: Three keys to get past the Baltimore Ravens
DAZN also streams LIVE 24/7 access to NFL Network, as well as complete coverage of marquee events like the NFL Draft and Combine. Neither the Ravens or Chargers are obvious Super Bowl contenders, but both teams are extremely risky at this time of the year.
Tulowitzki deal is ideal move for New York Yankees
The deal for the free agent infielder was reportedly too good to pass up for the Yankees as it was a win-win situation for them. In the end, though, Tulowitzki represents a low-risk, high-reward move by a team with strong designs on the World Series.
But rather than embarrass Ocasio-Cortez, the release ended up having the opposite of its intended effect.
Ocasio-Cortez's plan echoes findings by economists including Nobel laureate Peter Diamond and Berkeley professor Emmanuel Saez, who estimated that the ideal marginal tax rate should be 73 percent. While it may seem "radical", zooming out even to recent US history proves that it is far closer to the norm than our current low-tax era. This is a marginal tax rate, defined by Investopedia as "the tax rate incurred on each additional dollar of income". Rather, that rate would be for people with annual income of at least $10 million or so.
Still, Ocasio-Cortez did not offer a direct answer. In sensible countries, what they are is a way to pay for nice goodies that benefit (almost) everyone.
Many netizens disagreed with Ocasio-Cortez and argued that she had violated the law with her actions.
Ocasio-Cortez doesn't favor imposing a 70 percent tax on the merely rich. The hip and pelvis had serious damage where the bullet went through and, you know, did some damage to areas that had to be shored up with steel plates and then they did a phenomenal job of rebuilding, you know, kind of the, rebuilding Humpty Dumpty.
Sanders' response - "It's by air it's by land it's by sea, it's all of the above" - employs, essentially, the same logic Ocasio-Cortez is using: My specific fact may be wrong, but the broader point I was making still holds.
But the sum would likely be much lower because individuals falling in that bracket would find ways to avoid the heavy tax burden.
