Ocasio-Cortez vows to raise taxes while refusing to pay her own

 The socialist superstar owes the Internal Revenue Service $1,870 in business tax through a company she founded.

 According to Fox News:https://www.foxnews.com/politics/company-founded-by-ocasio-cortez-i...

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 state requires businesses to pay a corporation tax on a sliding scale based on revenue. The minimum payment last year was $25.

“The company probably got numerous letters from the state and probably ignored them,” one New York City accountant theorized.

Americanthinker.com reports: So like her fellow New Yorker Leona Helmsley, who went to jail for not paying her taxes, paying taxes is for “little people.” But as Ocasio-Cortez informed us earlier, she’s “the boss.”

 It’s not even a high amount that she’s thumbing her nose at, and on her congressional salary, she’s easily got the money to pay it.

She just doesn’t — which calls to mind what a hypocrite she is.

 Her mom fled New York to avoid its punitive tax rate, and that didn’t make a dent on her. Now she’s calling for a 70% top rate in taxation on the “tippy top” of income-earners to pay for her “green new deal,” which would hardly cover it if it were, God forbid, enacted, meaning that that tippy top she babbles about would soon extend down the food chain fast, meaning huge tax hikes for everyone.

 But obviously, not her. It just goes to show how ignorant she is of how the world works — or, more likely, how she exempts herself from the lifestyles she would impose on others. She doesn’t even pay her piddly taxes under the current regime.

CONFUSION:   Pelosi Says Constitution Spells Out ‘Two Co-Equal Branches’ Of Government

No Nancy. No.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi must be taking night classes at the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez School of Government.

Pelosi, the 79-year-old third-highest ranking official in the U.S. government, was speaking to the Center for American Progress today when she mistakenly said there are “two co-equal branches” of government, before correcting herself to say there are three.

Watch:

“First of all, let me just say, we take an oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States,” Pelosi said.

“Democrats take that oath seriously, and we are committed to honoring our oath of office. I’m not sure that our Republican colleagues share that commitment, and I’m not sure that the president of the United States does, too,” she claimed.

“So, in light of the fact that the beauty of the Constitution is a system of checks and balances— two co-equal branches— three co-equal branches of government,” she corrected with a laugh.

“A check and balance on each other,” she continued. “Con— Constitution spells out the pri— pa, uh, the duties of Congress and one of them is oversight of the president of the United States, another one of them is to impeach the president of the United States,” Pelosi said.

In November, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez rallied supporters on Facebook to pitch in and help Democrats take back “all three chambers of Congress.”

“…the Progressive movement works and it wins in all districts…If we work our butts off to make sure that we take back all three chambers of Congress– three chambers of government…,” she said during the virtual appearance.

She clarified that she meant the “presidency, the Senate and the House.”

According to the Constitution, the three branches of government are the legislative, executive and judicial.
