‘They just want to create havoc’: Fox News whines Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is ‘like a bull in a china shop’

Published

On Thanksgiving, Fox News continued their panic over Democrats capturing control of the House of Representatives.

Fox Business Network personality Charles Payne, who was filling in during the holiday, was concerned that Democrats would provide oversight of President Donald Trump.

“You’ve got these older, established Democrats who’ve seen what’s happened in the past, they know it’s a risky political move,” he argued.

“Whereas the upstarts, the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s of the world, maybe they just don’t know, they’re like bulls in a china shop, they just want to create havoc,” Payne suggested.

“Right,” said Phil Wegmann of the conservative Washington Examiner.

“The question for Republicans is how do they want to respond,” Wegmann said. “Are they going to continue with a nice-guy sort-of schtick, like we saw out of Paul Ryan (R-WI) — who is a lovable policy wonk — or Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), who is, you know, the affable friend of everybody in Congress or are they going to respond like Newt Gingrich would have and really bring the hammer down.”

Wegmann’s publication, the Washington Examiner, was recently in a scandal after reporter Eddie Scary posted a widely-criticized picture of Rep.-elect Ocasio-Cortez’s posterior.

America’s millionaires just stopped paying into Social Security for the rest of 2020

On Wednesday, not even two full months into 2020, millionaires will stop paying into Social Security for the year due to the program's payroll tax cap.

The cap limits annual wages subject to the Social Security payroll tax to the first $137,700. Sarah Rawlins, program associate at the Center for Economic and Policy Research (CEPR), wrote Tuesday that the cap means "someone who makes $1,000,000 per year stops paying into the program on February 19, 2020."

"That makes a millionaire's effective tax rate well below the 6.2% of income that most Americans pay," Rawlins noted. "Instead, it is less than 1% of a millionaire's income. The Social Security tax is only levied on wages, excluding income from other sources like capital gains, meaning those with wages over the cap likely have an effective tax rate even lower than this estimate."

Published

Emerson College was blasted for leaving their own senator out of head-to-head matchups in their latest nationwide poll.

But the poll did not even test Warren in head-to-head matchups with Trump.
