(WatchDogReport.org) – Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is one of the most vocal proponents of the “tax-the-rich” movement. She often rails against corporations and the wealthy in general. The congresswoman claims to be a champion of the working class, that’s what makes her latest gaffe so funny.
AOC sells merchandise on her website. That’s not unusual; many politicians sell t-shirts, bumper stickers, and the like to supporters. What’s so ironic about her merch is how expensive it is. One sweatshirt in particular has received a lot of attention. It’s a plain sweatshirt that has “Tax The Rich” scrawled across the front of it… and at one point it cost $65.
AOC is selling $65 dollar sweatshirts that say “tax the rich” that only rich ppl can afford. Should just say “Tax Me.” pic.twitter.com/UhiNckLkWP

The sweatshirt has gone down a whole $7 in price. Working-class voters can now buy one for $58 plus shipping, of course. The people AOC claims to serve, the poor, can’t afford a sweatshirt that costs that much money. She claims they can barely afford to eat, but here she is selling merch many of her supporters won’t be able to buy.
