Rich Liberals See the Light on Higher Taxes
Not all liberals were impressed with the dress that far-left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wore to the Met Gala emblazoned on the back with the words “Tax the Rich.” That this was an event for the rich and famous made the dress even more ridiculous.
AOC would be viewed as rich by the majority of Americans since her congressional salary is $174,000. Some prominent liberals in the entertainment world who make much more than that were not impressed with AOC’s slogan.
Said Whoopi Goldberg on “The View”:

For me this is outrageous. You know because, listen, in America you’re supposed to be able to come and turn yourself into everything, you know?
The problem for me with all this is people don’t know what you’re putting in if you’re making $500,000. If you’re raising grandkids or taking care of parents and all kind of stuff, then you want to take more
