Ocasio-Cortez: “NFL Owners Who Refuse To Hire Kaepernick Would Pay For Green New Deal”

You know you can’t go more than a day without hearing a story about Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

This time she specifically stated who would be hit by the astronomical tax hikes. Team owners who wouldn’t hire Colin Kaepernick.

She didn’t just say team owners, she mentioned the ones who wouldn’t hire Kaepernick as though it’s a penalty.

According to Fox Business,

“In response to a joke made by GOP Rep. Dan Crenshaw of Texas about imposing a top rate of 70 percent on the Patriots to even out competition, the New York Democrat said the average player would not earn enough to be affected.”

Representative Dan Crenshaw tweeted Sunday,

Should someone propose a 70% tax on the Patriots so that NFL competition is more fair and equal? Asking for a friend.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez responded back by tweeting,

The average NFL salary is $2.1 million, so most players would never experience a 70% rate.

The owners who refuse to hire Kaepernick would, though.

Ocasio-Cortez stated during an interview with “60 Minutes” last month that it would be beneficial to impose a whopping 70 percent tax rate for anyone who earns an income of $10 million or more.

She made the suggestion in order to foot the bill of a “Green New Deal” that would “be a massive investment in clean energy infrastructure, aiming to eliminate carbon emissions in a little more than a decade,” according to Fox Business.

This is one of the core problems with Socialism. I don’t care if they call it “Democratic Socialism” or not. Stealing is stealing. Taxation is theft. And the more money you steal from people who work very hard for it the less they’re going to work or they’re going to leave. They’re rich, they can leave whenever they want. There are tons of loopholes in this stupid idea to cover the Green New Plan.
