Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) is so enraged at President Donald Trump’s failure to pay his fair share of taxes that she hurled his own brand of foul language at him like a true New Yorker. And he most certainly deserves it.
For decades, Republicans have been claiming that the United States does not have enough money to pay for education and have balked at tuition-free college for the same lame reasoning. But we seem to always have enough money to spend on the bloated defense budget. However, it should be pointed out that we might have enough money to spend on education if the wealthy paid their fair share of taxes.
Republicans have not only given the wealthy many tax breaks over the years, including one in late 2017 that turned out to be a gift worth trillions that hurt the economy, wealthy people like Trump have schemed to hardly pay any taxes at all.
Indeed, he only paid $750 one year and didn’t pay a dime for ten years
So it’s no wonder why Ocasio-Cortez is angry, and she certainly made no secret of it during an interview with Vanity Fair shortly after the bombshell about Trump’s taxes dropped.
“These are the same people saying that we can’t have tuition-free public colleges because there’s no money… when these motherf***ers are only paying $750 a year in taxes,” AOC said, clearly in reference to tax cheats like Trump, who has refused to release his tax returns since 2016.
She also took aim at Trump’s racism and took at shot at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) for being Trump’s lackey.
“Trump is the racist visionary, but McConnell gets the job done, AOC said. “He doesn’t do anything without Trump’s blessing. Trump says, ‘Jump.’ McConnell says, ‘How high?’ Trump never does what McConnell says.”
Ocasio-Cortez also noted that the Democratic Party needs to get better because there are more potential Trumps out there.
“You know how many Trumps there are in waiting?” she asked.
Obviously, Trump’s kids are apparently interested in running for office. But given the fact that so many Republicans have kissed Trump’s a** over the last four years, clearly some of them are eager to occupy the White House and be just as iron-fisted as he has been. That’s why it’s so important to make sure that no Republican is ever elected president again. It’s also equally important to elevate people like AOC to higher office because that’s the only way progressive ideas like universal healthcare and tuition-free education can become a reality.
