Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is one of the socialists in Congress that complains the rich don’t “pay their fare share.”
But Ocasio-Cortez is going to have to eat her words.
That’s because Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s tax returns hid this shady financial scandal.
As American Patriot Daily reports:
Ocasio-Cortez has ambitious plans for America.
Her Green New Deal is supposed to help eliminate the use of fossil fuels within 12 years.
To do that, Ocasio-Cortez decided America needed to stop air travel, build speed trains, rebuild every house in America to be energy efficient, and have the government take over utility companies.
This ambitious plan would cost $93 trillion, or $600,000 per household in America, but Ocasio-Cortez was fine taxing Americans to pay for her plans.
“What is the problem with trying to push our technological capacities to the furthest extent possible?” Ocasio-Cortez asked. “There’s an element where yeah, people are going to have to start paying their fair share in taxes.”
But Ocasio-Cortez allegedly isn’t paying her fair share of taxes right now.
New York claims Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez owes over $2,000 in unpaid taxes from a failed business venture.
Ocasio-Cortez is making $174,000 a year,was able to spend $300 on a haircut last year, and in the building she lives in, a studio apartment costs more than $2,000.
She’s constantly calling on Congress to raise taxes on the rest of Americans, and most Americans can only dream of being able to live the cushy life she has been able to snag for herself.
Before she was a congresswoman living the highlife, she tried to start a publishing company called Brook Avenue Press in 2012 that failed in 2016.
In those years as a business owner, Ocasio-Cortez was a part of a bill that would give startups tax breaks.
Even though the government didn’t give her a tax break, Ocasio-Cortez allegedly took a break from paying New York’s taxes.
A warrant was issued against her in 2017 after she left the taxes unpaid for five years. The unpaid bill started off as $1,618, and over time, it grew with penalties to be $2,088.
“The congresswoman is still in the process of contesting the tax warrant. The business has been closed for several years now, and so we believe that the state Tax Department has continued to collect the franchise tax in error,” AOC spokeswoman Lauren Hitt said to the Post.
“As anyone who’s tried to contest a tax bill in error knows, it takes time,” Hitt added.
New York issued a warrant against Ocasio-Cortez more than two years ago. It doesn’t take that long to figure out if the tax bill was legitimate or not.
It seems likely that the bill is genuine but that Ocasio-Cortez thought that she could get out of paying.
The socialists that rally for higher taxes aren’t willing to pay higher taxes themselves.
Bernie Sanders was against millionaires the first time he ran for president, but once he wrote his book and had his three houses, suddenly it was billionaires who were the problem.
Ocasio-Cortez has shown that she’s a hypocrite like the rest of the radical left.
People who are truly charitable don’t just try to give away other people’s money.
