Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) demonstrated once again her media savvy this weekend, dominating the political discussion with the clever strategy of saying interesting, correct things in the fashion of a normal person instead of a robot trained by focus groups.
"We only ask how we pay for it on issues of housing, health care, and education", she continued. But as others have pointed out, her mistakes are sometimes put on a par with Trump's most egregious and vicious lies, even when she corrects them or clarifies misunderstandings.
Ocasio-Cortez's plan echoes findings by economists including Nobel laureate Peter Diamond and Berkeley professor Emmanuel Saez, who estimated that the ideal marginal tax rate should be 73 percent. "How do we pay for it?"
"No one asks how we're gonna pay for this Space Force. For all of these...ambitious policies".
"What makes it unrealistic?"
In a statement to 60 Minutes, the White House refuted Ocasio-Cortez's claim that Trump is racist, stating that her "sheer ignorance on the matter can't cover the fact that President Trump supported and passed historic criminal justice reform". One possibility that Ocasio-Cortez raised is for the U.S.to have significantly higher taxes on the rich - including tax rates upwards of 70% - and that the country needs the wealthiest people today "to start paying their fair share in taxes". To pretend that their post criticizing Ocasio-Cortez was more than that - a post from a conspiracy theorist - is to give QAnon more credence than they deserve.

Another tweet called out WaPo for giving her four "Pinocchios" - the same number President Donald Trump received over the number of people who died in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria - for her "confusing tweet" about how the Pentagon's alleged $21 trillion in accounting discrepancies could pay for two-thirds of Medicare for All.
CBS said it contacted the White House about those comments before airing them, and that a spokesman responded that Trump has repeatedly condemned bigotry and racism in all forms. "But I would encourage you to sit still for a minute and learn the job because there are people in that party who have been working their tails off for this country".
However, that wasn't the entire quote, and as we've seen many times before, when she is misrepresented, AOC will call it out.
She was officially sworn in to Congress last week along with other lawmakers.
