She also acknowledged that her goal is "ambitious".

Who would pay higher taxes if Ocasio-Cortez's ideas somehow become a reality?

Despite not giving any specifics on how she would pay for the expansive government programs she had proposed, Ocasio-Cortez suggested at another point during the interview that the government should raise the tax rate to as high as 70 percent to fund climate change programs.

The controversy of the moment involves AOC's advocacy of a tax rate of 70-80 percent on very high incomes, which is obviously insane, right?

"How can you say that?" he asked Ocasio-Cortez.

Democratic congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez issued an apology to Donald Trump Jr, the son of the USA president, over her own tweet posted on 7 December. It was previously at 39.6 percent.

Even though it has little chance of success, the proposal backed by the young lawmaker has already garnered significant support.

It landed her on the front page of the New York Daily News, an image of which Ocasio-Cortez was quick to retweet.

With Robertson now in the fold, it gives the Phillies a potential closer and more stability towards the backend of the bullpen. The Phillies can buy out the option for $2 million, meaning Robertson is guaranteed $23 million over the next two years.

The spat took place on social media after Scalise responded with a witty reply to Ocasio-Cortez's progressive tax plan that she announced on national television. The women discussed what the freshman congresswoman said during her appearance on "60 Minutes" when she called out "establishment" Democrats.

This weekend, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez went on 60 Minutes and did more to shift the Overton Window left during her interview than almost every single Democrat has done throughout the entirety of millennials' existence on this planet.

More recently, Trump was slammed for promoting a GOP campaign ad critics likened to the infamous "Willie Horton" ads supporting George H.W. Bush in the 1988 presidential election.

Ocasio-Cortez added, "The president certainly didn't invent racism, but he's certainly given a voice to it and expanded it, and created a platform for those things". "That is radical", she responded. "Newly unearthed video reveals that when @AOC was in college, she was ... adorable", Karen Tumulty tweeted. "It requires risk to try something new, but also we know so much of what we've tried in the past hasn't worked, either". "I can't believe they thought that was going to be some scandal", wrote DeRay McKesson, a United States civil rights activist who was a leader of the Black Lives Matter wave of protests against police violence that swept USA cities including Ferguson, Missouri, and Baltimore in 2014 and 2015.

Ocasio-Cortez has in the past called out a journalist who referred to her as "a girl" in a November tweet critical of her clothing.

The video was criticised by many.

"In response, Ocasio-Cortez accused the senior statesman of being unaware of how marginal tax systems work", TheBlaze reported.

"Wait till they find out Congresswomen dance too!"

Just days into her term, the freshman Congresswoman from NY has continued to push back against criticism and stand fast in her Democratic Socialist convictions. Franklin Delano Roosevelt made the radical decision to embark on establishing programmes like Social Security.
