TWAT News: AOC Offers $58 “Tax the Rich” Sweatshirt

For all the bluster we hear out of the hard left, they don’t know much about how to run a society. While they can be vexing, we sometimes get a kick out of how gutsy they can be.

Such as when Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) includes among her merch a sweatshirt with the phrase “Tax the Rich”, and then charged $58 for it.

The irony of the fact that you’d have to be rich to spend that kind of money on a sweatshirt isn’t lost on the connected world, who is subjecting this sloppy offering to the fiery lampooning it so richly merits.

Who exactly is this shirt for, if it’s target demographic couldn’t afford it? If you are where I was ten years ago, it would take you two weeks to afford this thing, and that’s if you didn’t eat anything.

It’s not new that those who most insist on running society today are clueless when it comes to the basics of kitchen-table economics. More recently, they have shown us that they have no idea how to manage funds when they run low other than to extract more from the people who actually work for a living.

It would seem that today’s politicians have discovered a new, creative way to extract money: with their own merchandise. It may even be a more effective way to fundraise, as it would enable yet more cash flow from those underemployed twenty-somethings whose main source of income is hitting up mom and dad.

What a clever way to benefit off of capitalism while sticking it to capitalism, AOC. Your integrity is evident.

A fool and his money are soon parted.
