First, we had Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez arguing for a 70 percent marginal tax rate on any income over $10 million (although her policy guy thought maybe he could talk her up to 90 percent — seems he deleted that tweet, though … weird).

Now Sen. Elizabeth Warren is trying to get in on the game with her (unconstitutional) “wealth tax” on those with more than $50 million.

Twitchy favorite Chad Felix Greene put together a thoughtful mini-thread on these tax proposals, and it’s worth a look:

Warren says her plan would raise $2.75 trillion over 10 years … but $5.7 for border security is totally unreasonable. So where does all the money go? Progressives always say roads and public schools — but both of those are a mess and always need more money. Always.

It’s a funny time to ask that question, seeing as we’re now finding out how many government employees are “non-essential.”

What did Rush Limbaugh always ask … which nation ever taxed itself into prosperity?

How’s that Social Security “lockbox” coming along?

That is not true. It was actually an $875,000 grant to study the sexual habits of quail high on cocaine.

Worried about furloughed workers not having food? Maybe cut the quail study and spread that around.
