Last week, AOC made national headlines for attending the Met Gala ball in her “Tax the Rich” dress.
It dripped of hypocrisy on so many levels.
To start, the tickets for the gala go for about $30,000.
Second, AOC was wearing a designer dress, both of which she probably got on the cuff, the sheer definition of the privilege she always rails against.
That is just the beginning of the problem, as Bill Maher was more than happy to point out.
The very premise of AOC’s claim that the rich do not get taxed is completely bogus.
Roughly half the taxes paid to the state of New York City come from about 65,000 people (more than eight million people live in the city).
Maher, in part, stated, “It’s not like we don’t tax the rich at all.
“I’m all for ending income inequality, but let’s not lie. The rich pay a lot of the taxes.”
He continued, “I’m just saying, you wear ‘tax the rich’ on your ass, and people are always saying the rich don’t pay taxes. They pay some taxes!”
He added. “They pay a big part of the freight already. I’m not saying it shouldn’t be more perhaps, but let’s not lie.”
