    Scalise is showing here that he is clearly stupider than Ocasio-Cortez (or just a liar) and he has no business getting elected (a white Republican in a 78% white Republican district — talk about identity politics)......but, you know, he is such a cute and cuddly little boy. Don’t you just want to scoop him up and take him home with you to marry your daughter?

    He's a vile human being.

    I mean, I think he's lying. He has to understand what a marginal tax rate is. He has to. ****ing GROVER NORQUIST tweeted basically the same dumb thing suggesting his has no idea what he's talking about either. But considering caring about taxes is his entire grift, he definitely knows he's lying too.


    These scare-mongering lies are incredibly effective among their base. They'll eat this nonsense up. I'm sure millions were tossing and turning in their sleep dreaming about the Socialism Monster eating all their money.

    What did Scalise say that has some of you in such a twist???

    He was quoted as saying he was for "letting Americans keep more of their own hard-earned money.”

    Doesn't sound all that bad to me and it doesn't infer that he has no understanding of marginal tax rates.

    Not much of a story here really.

    The lie:



    and the dunk:




    He either doesn't know what a marginal tax rate is or he's brazenly lying about what it is AOC is pushing for. It's an intentional misrepresentation, and a flat out lie, about what that 70% number means. Either way, one person looks way dumber than the other here!

    Here's the Norquist tweet I mentioned. Again, he knows he's lying. He can not possibly have no idea what a marginal tax rate is.



    And here's Paul Krugman explaining why there is nothing at all radical about what she wants.

    Maybe she is the dumbest person in the world who did nothing impressive by winning her congressional race...but she sure as hell is dominating the headlines. That's accomplishing something. Dunking on clowns on twitter left and right is a nice touch too The ratios these idiots are getting when they try to go at her is cathartic.

    Sorry, getting "the ratio" on Twitter, or "getting ratioed/ratio'd", means a tweet has way more comments than likes/retweets. It's almost always a sign of an incredibly disliked or bad tweet. It's so bad people are chiming in, and no one is endorsing it (liking/retweeting).

    Scalise and especially Norquist's objectively bad tweets saw them have way more comments than likes/RTs. They thus got "ratio'd"! They lied to completely misrepresent AOC's words.

    AOC's response to Scalise had 33,000 comments to 131,000 likes. A dunk. The people love it.


    Here are the nerds on this important twitter phenomena:

    Oh that's what you guys think now

    It's probably Trump's single best political skill. And it's not even close.

    Not to insinuate that I think the two are equally intelligent. One person's brain is infected rot and the other's is young and healthy!

    “Take away 70% of your income...”

    The deception he is practising is twofold:

    1. Unless all of his twitter followers (the you in “your income”) are earning $10 million annually, the 70% rate does does not pertain.

    2. Much more important, it’s not 70% of anyone’s income; it’s 70% of anyone’s additional income above $10 million.

    It's also not anything new. There's nothing radical about it. But you have to expect the reaction from the right that you're getting. Protect the rich first and foremost. And lie your *** off to do so.

    Goodness. I mean who in their right ****ing mind would be happy about giving other people $700k for every $1m they earn? Regardless if they make $10mm or $200mm.

    I promise you, rich Democrats are telling her to **** off right now too
    GJO- You will never be forgotten. "MORE THAN MINFINITY"!

    Who is happy about paying any money in taxes? Are you honestly tickled pink when ANY money comes out of your paycheck and goes to the federal or state government?
