Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is standing by proposal to hike taxes on the superrich.
Business Insider reports that the Democrat took on former Wisconsin Govenor Scott Walker's simplification of her proposal.
In a Tuesday tweet, Walker said he told a group of fifth graders that Ocasio-Cortez's proposed 70% marginal tax rate on income over $10 million was akin to having 70% of their $10 in pocket money taken by their grandmother.
"'Imagine if you did chores for your grandma and she gave you $10. When you got home, your parents took $7 from you.' The students said: 'That's not fair!'" Walker wrote. "Even 5th graders get it."
Explaining marginal taxes to a far-right former Governor: Imagine if you did chores for abuela & she gave you $10. When you got home, you got to keep it, because it's only $10," Ocasio-Cortez wrote, imitating Walker's tweet. "Then we taxed the billionaire in town because he's making tons of money underpaying the townspeople."
