Facts and tax rates

January 9, 2019

I really don’t mean to pick on “Democratic” Socialist Rep. Alex Ocasio-Cortez, but her plans to remake America into a socialist Utopia apparently not only require destroying the Constitution and US economy but also waging war on fact-checkers.  After being challenged on her fuzzy math on “Sixty Minutes” (hey, it was only a little $21 trillion mistake, which is nothing when you’re “morally right”), she went on an epic tweet-storm against fact-checkers, demanding to know why she’s being fact-checked so much when the Trump Administration has been fact-checked so little.

The Washington Post’s fact-checker, Glenn Kessler, replied, “We have fact-checked you twice. We have fact-checked 7,645 Trump claims.”

Then you’d better brace yourself, Glenn.  She has 7,643 to go.

As long as we’re on the subject: when you hear the latest crop of far-leftists revive the old saw about the rich needing to pay their “fair share,” you can consult this handy link to see how much they’re already paying.  Like how the top 20% of earners currently pay over 88% of all federal income taxes.  They might argue that that's not fair.

And note that that while the tax cut has led to a job boom and manufacturing jobs returning to the US that Obama suggested would never come back without a magic wand, Democrats are already talking about raising the corporate tax rate by a whopping 33%, making the US less competitive with other nations and killing recent growth in GDP, jobs and wages.

But then, we’d all suffer equally, so it’s “fair!”

    There is a more sinister reason why liberal Democrats (redundant, I know) would cripple the economy with ridiculously high tax rate increases: it is their fervent hope that a recession, or even a depression (be still their beating hearts!), occurs while Trump is in office. It might be the only way to take him down in the next election.

    You are so right. The other dems are jumping on her bandwagon so they can have some of her attention.

    I am catching up. lol I hated to listen to Palosi and was so thankful when she was no longer the mouth of the house. Now she is back and it's worse than before and NOW there is one who annoys me as bad if not worse than Palosi. She is so phony with her little girl persona. Oh look at me I am so young and new at this giggle giggle I'll catch on soon. I am just annoyed to no end by her and her socialism stupidity. Is it me or does she make no sense at all. Or is because I'm 73 old school person and she is one of those Millennials ? There I feel better. Terri

    I've left messages before and asked for comments back. I doubt that you read this either. Dems are idiot's.
