Backfire: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Gets Brutally Mocked For Selling $58 Sweatshirt That Reads ‘Tax The Rich’

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez receives harsh criticism for trying to sell a $58 sweatshirt that says, “tax the rich,” according to Fox News.

Ben Shapiro responded, “Only the rich can afford this idiotic sweatshirt.”

“Selling a $58 sweatshirt to own the capitalists is the most AOC thing ever,” said Eddie Zipperer.

“Hey AOC I can’t afford this sweatshirt [right now], you got a coupon code for the non-rich?”

AOC said, “Republicans are freaking out [because] we don’t use slave-wage labor for merch that funds grassroots organizing. But what’s the difference between Trump’s merch and ours? Ours is made in the US. ([and] for GOP who joke that we [should] give [shirts] for free, we actually do – just volunteer).”

The leftists said, “We like your merch, AOC. #TaxTheRich”

“We need you to pass a billionaires’ tax, in order to make sure that we’re providing for our working families. It’s time to stop protecting billionaires, and it’s time to start working for working families.”

From Fox News:

Ocasio-Cortez announced preorders for the black sweatshirt emblazoned with “TAX THE RICH” in all caps on Wednesday night, adding that the items are “made in the US with dignified, union jobs paying living wages.”

The “Tax the Rich” sweatshirt is one of many items available in the official AOC shop, which includes a “Drink Water & Don’t Be Racist” sticker and “AOC Plus Me” T-shirts. Selling merchandise online has become a key way for politicians to raise funds in recent years.

Ocasio-Cortez is known for critiquing capitalism and is a driving force for progressive policies, including “Medicare-for-all” and the Green New Deal that would significantly expand government power in health care and climate regulation.

    Sweatshirt That Reads ‘Tax The Rich' – SARAH PALIN is a little plain. You might look at Yahoo’s home page and note how they write article headlines to grab viewers to
    click. You might try adding a video or a pic or
    two to grab readers excited about what you’ve got to say.

    In my opinion, it might make your posts a little livelier.

  17. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your
    point. You definitely know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something enlightening
    to read?
