Rep Ocasio-Cortez Apologizes to Trump Jr Over Alleged 'Abuse of Power'

New Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Monday questioned why "controversial" White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has been fact-checked by the media the same number of times despite the big difference in how long they've served in their respective roles.

She also supports universal health care, tuition-free public college and massive government investment to combat climate change.

Ocasio-Cortez replied: "It's absolutely risky".

I was very grateful to live in Sweden when the triplets were born.The operating room was swarming with highly skilled professionals; one team of doctor and nurses for every triplet, one team to handle the Cesarean.I thought "I'm spending every krona I ever paid in tax right now". And the reason Ocasio-Cortez's claims are attracting so much attention is that she has become incredibly influential at a stupefying pace, and people are interested in understanding her views. AOC hasn't even been a congresswoman for a week, yet she is setting the terms of the debate inside the Democratic Party.

More recently, Trump was slammed for promoting a GOP campaign ad critics likened to the infamous "Willie Horton" ads supporting George H.W. Bush in the 1988 presidential election. All she said is that decades ago, tax rates on the ultra-rich were much higher than they are now. Unlike many other news organizations, we have not put up a paywall.

The duo agreed that as hosts, they don't plan to "go hard into detailed politics stuff", as Samberg said. DeMille award as well as a four-time Golden Globes nominee, mostly recently in 1995 for "Sabrina".

Asked if she considers herself to be a radical, Ocasio-Cortez told CBS, "You know, if that's what radical means, call me a radical".

At one point, Cooper blatantly asked if she believes President Trump 'is a racist?' Ocasio-Cortez ran on a platform of Medicare for All and abolishing Ice.

"When Cooper pressed on how she could possibly pay for the deal, she pointed to the progressive tax rate system in the 1960s, explaining that if you earn 0 to $75,000 a year, you would only pay 10 percent or 15 percent in income tax", Mediate.com reported from the interview. Which is a very unsafe, slippery slope to tread at any time but especially in an age in which the President of the United States is actively seeking to undermine the idea that objective facts actually exist.

With her past as a NY bartender, Ocasio-Cortez is a figurehead of the new wave of young lawmakers who entered Congress after the midterm elections, bringing fresh perspectives and more diversity to the legislature. Now, AOC simply floats the idea of returning to the marginal tax rates of the period of US history that Baby Boomers claim to be idyllic, and look at what happens. They take tax. You get the check, money gone. That doesn't mean all 10 million dollars are taxed at an extremely high rate. Franklin Delano Roosevelt made the radical decision to embark on establishing programs like Social Security. "No question." She noted the language he uses when speaking about race - for example, when he stated that there were fine people on both sides after the violent Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Va., and his rhetoric on immigration.
