Ocasio-Cortez shocked to learn lobbyists pay others to stand in line

During a recent interview at Bill and Melinda Gates’ Seattle-area offices Bill Gates warned that decreased government support could lead to some “pretty bleak” scenarios

"We can be more progressive without really threatening income generation - what you have left to decide how to spread around", Gates said. "So the ability of hedge fund people, various people - they aren't paying that ordinary income rate".

Although no designer has come forward to publicize their participation in Ocasio-Cortez outfit, Glamour magazine reported that internet sleuths went looking for the most noteworthy item: a white cape worn in lieu of a suit jacket. You start to create tax dodging and disincentives, and an incentive to have the income show up in other countries and things'. "First of all, you never have to default because you print the money".

Gates now has a net worth of US$90 billion, making him the second wealthiest individual in the world behind Jeff Bezos. Currently, US residents in that top bracket pay 37%.

There's been a lot of talk lately of upping taxes for America's highest earners. "It's about a 20% rate, so it has nothing to do with the 39.6% marginal ordinary income rate", Gates said.

Her proposal to raise the marginal tax rate for those earning more than US$10 million per year to 70% has been hotly debated, though polling suggests it has widespread public support.

'If you focus on that, you're missing the picture, ' he said.

And from a list of eight popular Democrats, Ocasio-Cortez attracted the second highest overall traffic, after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, between when she was sworn in on January 3 and February 10 on the websites within Parse.ly's network.

"I'm going to be the bad guy, which I'm sure half the room would agree with anyway, and I want to get away with as much bad things as possible, ideally to enrich myself and advance my interests, even if that means putting my interests ahead of the American people", the New York Democrat began.

They noted record gains by female lawmakers and praised Ocasio-Cortez for "opening our government up" on Social Media.
