As you’re well aware, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez is among progressive/socialist Democrats who are constantly slamming corporations and the wealthy for not paying their “fair share” in taxes. Here are just a couple examples:
Lastly, this isn’t just about one company or one headquarters. It’s about cost of living, corps paying their fair share, etc.
It’s not about picking a fight, either. I was elected to advocate for our community’s interests – & they‘ve requested, clearly, to voice their concerns.

Cool, does that mean they’ll start paying their fair share in taxes? https://t.co/4z8vh3L2JS

With that in mind, we present to you this report from the New York Post:

Well isn’t that special:
Democratic darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez still hasn’t paid a six-year-old tax bill left over from a failed business venture.
Weeks after The Post alerted the freshman Congresswoman’s office to the outstanding tax lien from 2012, she still hasn’t paid it, state records show.
Brook Avenue Press, a company set up in the Bronx to publish books about city children, owes $1,877.56 in unpaid corporate taxes.
The member of Congress who takes constant aim at corporations for not paying their fair share in taxes has unpaid corporate taxes? If AOC’s office notices the Post’s story they’ll no doubt have some sort of snappy clapback at the ready.
It’s ok she is Dem.
