Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Fires back at Dan Crenshaw over Super Bowl Tax Tweet

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., isn’t with any of a fellow freshman’s cheeky swipe her thought to hike the marginal tax rate of the country’s wealthiest people around 70 percent. Ocasio-Cortez clashed with Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas, on Twitter on Monday when the SEAL veteran poked fun of this liberal firebrand’s proposal for taxing individuals earning more than $10 million at a Super Bowl-inspired tweet. 

“If someone proposes a 70% tax on the Patriots so that NFL contest is much more equal and fairer? The owners that refuse to hire Kaepernick would, however.” Colin Kaepernick is your former San Francisco 49ers quarterback who started a string of protests throughout the national anthem before NFL games over police brutality and abuse. 

Ocasio-Cortez’s take on taxes has sparked debate within the 2020 Democratic primary field as some candidate’s side with her position, while other contenders like Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts push their particular stance. Warren is advocating to be taxed at a rate starting at a 2 percent, increasing to 3 percent for billionaire households. 

Like Ocasio-Cortez, Crenshaw is among the more high-profile freshman lawmakers seated as a member of their 116th Congress.
