Rep. Ilhan Omar Calls For 90% Tax On The Rich

 Ilhan Omar
Just weeks after socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., called for a top marginal income tax rate of 70 percent, her fellow freshman socialist congresswoman, Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., suggested that the rich could pay even more.

“There are a few things that we can do,” Rep. Omar said in an interview with “Through Her Eyes.” “One of them, is that we can increase the taxes that people are paying who are the extremely wealthy in our communities. So, 70 percent, 80 percent, we’ve had it as high as 90 percent. So, that’s a place we can start.”

“The one percent must pay their fair share,” she continued.

I warned you when Trump was elected that this would be to the advantage of no one but the socialists.

Immediately after the election on November 10, 2016, I wrote:
Heading into the election, I felt that for strategic reasons Hillary Clinton was the best alternative for libertarians. Not because she is good on many issues, she is not, but because she would come with a ready-made opposition that would listen to libertarian arguments against her.

It would have been a great opportunity to reach out to Trump supporters and spread the libertarian message. That opportunity is now gone with the Trump victory. Trump supporters are rabid, they will likely follow him down almost any hell hole.

These people are not going to listen to our arguments for smaller government. Their man is in power.

There will be opposition to Trump but it will be coming from the Left, not the Trump right.

The Left is all about expanding the state. Thus, it will be very difficult to reach out to these people and present state shrinking anti-Trump ideas. They are a perfect target for the socialists...

 The socialists are going to experience a boom in followers under Trump.

Thus, neither the left nor the right is going to be open to libertarian ideas at the present time.

And so it is. Worse, the kids are eating up this socialist madness since there is little in the direction of old-school right to counter against Trump (It's all Trumpian neorightists). So the kids see two things, Trump and socialism as the two major alternatives and they are going with the socialists.



  1. Why stop there?
    Say the average yearly income is $44,000. So someone making $1,000,000 year needs to pay the IRS $956,000 to achieve equality.
    Hey, fair's fair.

  2. Hell, why not go to 100%. And if I shut down my company because I'm keeping none of my money, I can be taxed on my imputed income like in family court. Fair's fair.

  3. Somehow Trump is causing this march towards socialism? Sounds like another case of Trump derangement syndrome. This is the score - had HRC won we would have had a nation ending amnesty of 30 million socialists from the third world. Socialism much sooner in the USA. Done deal.

  4. Behind the scenes, someone or some oligarchy has been angling to become Dictator for Life for the past several administrations (at least as far back as "W"'s open-ended, ill-defined "War on Terror")... one suspects Trump might be the person to make it come about.
