Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Wants Carbon Tax, Trillions in Spending for ‘Renewable Energy Economy’

(Breitbart) Appearing as a guest on Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with host Trevor Noah, the political upshot proposed cutting military spending while boosting taxes on high-income Americans to create a “renewable energy economy.”



“I sat down with a Nobel Prize economist last week, I can’t believe I can say that, it’s really weird, but one of the things that we saw is if people pay their fair share if corporations and the ultra-wealthy,” Ocasio-Cortez boasted before delving into her proposal. “For example, as Warren Buffett likes to say if he pays as much as his secretary paid, 15 percent tax rate, if corporations paid, if we reverse the tax bill, raised our corporate tax rate to 28 percent … if we do those two things and also close some of those loopholes, that’s $2 trillion right there.”
