AOC keeps getting in trouble.
If it’s not an ethics complaint it’s referring to Ronald Reagan as a racist and suggesting America is “garbage.”
It’s truly never-ending.
Now, back taxes…
From New York Post:
Brook Avenue Press, a company she founded in 2012 to publish children’s books in The Bronx, owes the state $1,870.36 in corporate taxes, public records show.
The state slapped the company with a warrant on July 6, 2017, two months after Ocasio-Cortez announced her candidacy to run against Democratic incumbent Joe Crowley for the district that encompasses parts of Queens and The Bronx.
“The company probably got numerous letters from the state and probably ignored them,” one New York City accountant theorized.
Ocasio-Cortez represents Queens and the Bronx. What’s weird is that AOC apparently does not live in either borough when away from Washington DC.
There’s a word for this, isn’t there?
From New York Post:
She has no district office and no local phone number, unlike the state’s three other freshman members.
And it’s unclear whether the 29-year-old lawmaker, who represents the Bronx and Queens, actually still lives in the Parkchester neighborhood that has been so closely tied to her rise — even though she won her upset victory over fellow Democrat Rep. Joe Crowley with accusations that his home in Virginia made him too Washington-focused to serve his district.
Ocasio-Cortez has used her deceased father’s Bronx condo on her voter registration since 2012, and even posed in the one-bedroom Bronx flat for celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz in a Vogue magazine profile after her stunning November election. But The Post could find little indication she continues to live there.
Interesting, to say the least.
There’s probably a very, very decent chance that Ocasio-Cortez will run for president in 2024 – even if Democrats somehow manage to defeat President Trump in 2020 and have an incumbent seeking re-election.
During a recent interview, socialist filmmaker Michael Moore suggested amending the Constitution so Ocasio-Cortez could run for president before the age of 35.
Ocasio-Cortez believes President Trump is a racist.
Ocasio-Cortez: “The president certainly didn’t invent racism, but he’s certainly given a voice to it and expanded it and created a platform for those things.”
“When you look at the words that he uses, which are historic dog whistles of white supremacy. When you look at how he reacted to the Charlottesville incident, where neo-Nazis murdered a woman, versus how he manufactures crises like immigrants seeking legal refuge on our borders, it’s, it’s night and day.”
Ocasio-Cortez wants to be known as a “radical.” She made that clear in her “60 Minutes” interview.
AOC: “You know, you look at our tax rates back in the ’60s and when you have a progressive tax rate system, your tax rate, you know, let’s say, from zero to $75,000 may be ten percent or 15 percent, et cetera. But once you get to, like, the tippy tops, on your 10 millionth dollar, sometimes you see tax rates as high as 60 or 70 percent. That doesn’t mean all $10 million are taxed at an extremely high rate, but it means that as you climb up this ladder you should be contributing more.”
It is going to be a long two years covering Alexandria.
She’s young. She has ideas.
Unfortunately, she’s too young to understand that her ideas are ridiculous.
Alexandria claims the Pentagon lost $21 trillion.
$21 TRILLION of Pentagon financial transactions “could not be traced, documented, or explained.”
$21T in Pentagon accounting errors. Medicare for All costs ~$32T.
That means 66% of Medicare for All could have been funded already by the Pentagon.
And that’s before our premiums. https://t.co/soT6GSmDSG

There’s a huge problem with AOC’s math:
Wow. You claim $21 Trillion in Pentagon Waste? The entire Pentagon budget from 1789-2018 has totaled $18 trillion,
Come on, This is embarrassing. https://t.co/ezdhqWQFyc
