After House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) criticized Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) for her proposed 70-percent income tax, she quickly struck back - and her supporters followed up with threats aimed at the GOP leader who was almost killed by a critical shot from a Democratic terrorist shooter a year ago.

Mediaite said Anderson Cooper asked Ocasio-Cortez "about her previous intentions to support Democratic primary candidates to unseat incumbent Democrats, which the "60 Minutes" correspondent and CNN host noted as 'politically risky tactics'".

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez began her term as the youngest woman ever elected to the US Congress with a Socialistic bang this week by proposing to tax the ultra-rich at 60 or 70 percent.

Her idea of radical is to make the U.S. a Socialist State.

She rarely attacks President Donald Trump - but when questioned, she told CBS there was "no question" he was a racist. "When you look at how he reacted to the Charlottesville incident, where neo-Nazis murdered a woman, versus how he manufactures crises like immigrants seeking legal refuge on our borders, it's - it's night and day".

NowThis likewise posted a video claiming conservatives tried to "shame" Ocasio-Cortez with the clip, but mostly cited tweets praising her cool dance moves - with not much in the way of criticism beyond the original anonymous tweet.

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Democrat of NY, leaves a photo opportunity with the female Democratic members of the 116th US House of Representatives outside the US Capitol in Washington, D.C., on January 4, 2019. That said, she is very new to all of this - she had never run for anything before she beat Rep. Joe Crowley in a primary last summer - and she makes beginner's mistakes. "No one asked how we paid for a $2 trillion tax cut", Ocasio-Cortez said. That doesn't mean all $10 million are taxed at an extremely high rate.

In the meantime, she said, Trump is focused on finding bipartisan solutions on critical issues like infrastructure and trade. Trump reaffirmed that he would consider declaring a national emergency to circumvent Congress and spend money as he saw fit.

Such a move would seem certain to draw legal challenges. "This is national security we're talking about", he said on Friday. Speaking on CNN's "State of the Union", Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff called the idea a "nonstarter".

Apple's stark warning may be ominous news for China
CEO Tim Cook blamed the slump on a slowing economy in China, where Apple has also faced competition from Huawei and Xiaomi . The U.S. -China trade dispute threatens to snarl multinational companies' supply lines and reduce demand for their products.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently suggested raising the top tax rate to 70 percent in order to raise money to fund climate change investments. In a progressive tax rate system, rates increase as the level of income increases.

Fudging the facts in pursuit of "being morally right" - as Ocasio-Cortez puts it - assumes that moral righteousness is an agreed-upon thing.

When asked by presenter Anderson Cooper whether Mr Trump "is a racist", the 29-year-old left-wing Democratic lawmaker responded: "Yeah, yeah no question".

Ocasio-Cortez went on to attend and graduate from Boston University's College of Arts & Sciences in 2011, with a degree in economics and worldwide relations.

"It's absolutely important", she said.

"I think that it only has ever been radicals that have changed this country", Ocasio-Cortez said.

She said the centrism of Democrats has damaged the lives of everyday Americans: "We as a party have compromised too much, and we've lost too much of who we're supposed to be and who we are".
