All of this is so laughable and obvious. The USA tax system is set up to benefit “the rich”. AOC is a politician with a voice, as was Melania Trump when she wore the jacket with the “I don’t care or who cares” slogan on it. Stop being easily deceived by the obvious! Tune in your ears to Presidential debates when they occur. They will actually say it all the time how the rich pay little or no taxes, and/or those who make a $100k or less pay more taxes than millionaires and billionaires do. Haha! It’s so true and obvious! Do your research folks. Don’t fully trust your partisan political sides, go to the sources of truth and you will be set free.

Hey Swkh310 and David when the rich leave the USA from higher taxes because they have the means to do so then who do you tax??? Eventually everyone who you high tax who has the means will leave and you only have a poor to lower middle class population the very people you say you want to help. Who do you tax then?? Oh and most millionaires and billionaires don't make millions and billions so do you take the wealth they already have???

I don't know anyone whose goal is "equality of outcome for all". Surely there are many possibilities in between the two extremes of "til there are rich no more" versus don't even think about whether the current tax policy is the most appropriate. As for AOC, I think people tend to take her too seriously -- I see the dress as a joke, not a political manifesto.
