Youngest US congresswoman launches term with radical plan

'Congresswomen can dance too', Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez laughs off attempt to discredit her

Ocasio-Cortez, the youngest woman ever elected to Congress, called the president, "a symptom of a problem".

It is not clear which Republicans Ocasio-Cortez was referencing, and her office has not responded to The Daily Caller News Foundation's request for comment. The photo in the post shows the moment - Blanca Ocasio-Cortez with a look of pride on her face, flanked by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the young congresswoman.

As you can imagine, more people are reading The Jerusalem Post than ever before. This is the latest in a number of attempted smear campaigns on Ocasio-Cortez, many of which centre around personal attacks on her appearance or personal background.

"Once you get to the tippie-tops, on your 10 millionth dollar, sometimes you see tax rates as high as 60% or 70%".

"I hear the GOP thinks women dancing are scandalous", she wrote.

She is also an adept social media user and has 1.74 million followers on Twitter and 1.2 million on Instagram, and regularly engages with them, such as posting a video diary on Instagram documenting her first week in Washington. "The optimal tax rate on people with very high incomes is the rate that raises the maximum possible revenue".

The dancing queen herself has given newly sworn-in Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, her seal of approval.

In a New York Times op-ed, Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman backed Ocasio-Cortez, rejecting "the constant effort to portray her as flaky and ignorant". "And when you have a progressive tax rate system, your tax rate. let's say, from zero to $75,000, may be ten percent or 15 percent, et cetera", Ocasio-Cortez said. The asteroid, 23238 Ocasio-Cortez, has been named in her honor by the International Astronomical Union. "My personal opinion, and I know that my district and my community feels this way as well, is that 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". Franklin Delano Roosevelt made the radical decision to embark on establishing programmes like Social Security.

Ocasio-Cortez's victory in the Democratic primary against incumbent Joe Crowley, was one of the biggest upsets of the primary season.

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

"On the other hand, if you can't take the heat, then get out of the kitchen", she added.
