Capitalism isn’t so bad after all!
Firebrand Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has come up with a new campaign money-maker: Sell the rich expensive sweatshirts — about taxing the rich.
The Democratic socialist lawmaker’s website is now selling a bunch of pricey apparel with trendy slogans like “Abolish ICE,” “Drink water & don’t be racist” and “Tax the rich.”
The line of merchandise caught the eye of pundits on Twitter who pointed out the hypocrisy of an anti-capitalism legislator coming up with a clothing line.
“When you’re aiming for socialism but you hit capitalism,” they added.
Another pundit noted that the 31-year-old progressive icon and “Squad” leader was also a member of the wealthy class given her six-figure congressional income.
It’s unclear where the proceeds from sales go, but it appears the money will benefit Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign. There is no disclaimer on her website saying the funds go to charity.
It appears the price of the USA-made sweatshirt has since been reduced and is now $58.
It’s a very premature fundraising exercise given the Bronx-born lawmaker only just staved off a challenge a month ago.
A spokesman for AOC did not immediately respond to request for comment.
