Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just owned Republican Scott Walker after he lied to fifth-graders about her tax plan

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) gave a brutal economics lesson to former Wisconsin GOP governor Scott Walker on Twitter Tuesday.

The new congresswoman responded to a tweet in which Walker bragged that he was educating fifth graders about taxes by telling them that Democratic policies were like taking $7 of the $10 a kid made doing chores.

AOC, who has triggered her Republican colleagues by suggesting that the super-wealthy be taxed at between 70 and 80 percent, went on to explain marginal tax rates to a “far-right former Governor.”

AOC’s proposed tax policies have been vetted by economists, including the Nobel-winning Paul Krugman, who say they would be excellent for the American economy.

Trump has asserted that he will invoke executive privilege if Bolton or any other national security officials are called to testify. But according to an article for Just Security written by six contributors (Harold Hongju Koh, Rosa Hayes, Annie Himes, Dana Khabbaz, Michael Loughlin and Mark Stevens), U.S. Supreme Court Justice John Roberts “should reject any such executive privilege claim” and “require Bolton’s testimony.”

GOP Sen. Ron Johnson: ‘My guess’ is John Bolton is telling truth about Trump and Ukraine

Published

on

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI), who once personally lobbied President Donald Trump to release the hold on military aid to Ukraine, seemed to give former national security adviser John Bolton some credibility while talking with reports on Monday.

Politico's Kyle Cheney reports that Johnson said that "my guess is John Bolton tells the truth," although he said he still wanted to hear the Trump administration's full case and also questioned the "exquisite" timing of the leak about Bolton's upcoming book, in which he reportedly says Trump told him he was holding up military aid to Ukraine until it agreed to launch an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden.
