AOC ain't havin' it: Now she's calling out GOP hypocrisy over 'disgraceful' Dem conduct

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is on fire these days.

Well done.



Of course, AOC isn’t just about pithy quips and cool dance moves. She’s got an ambitious — some dare call it “radical” — agenda that includes taxing the rich the way they used to be taxed, back when our progressive tax structure (if not America itself) was great.

Ah, but her ideas aren’t really that radical. They’re only radical compared to the status quo in the U.S. circa 2019.

We’re historical outliers, as you can see:

Seventy percent top marginal rate? How about 91 percent? You know, like under Eisenhower.

And since every other developed country in the world guarantees health care to its citizens, we’re geographical outliers (some might say “radicals”) there as well.

Keep it up, AOC. We’re listening.
