It’s time yet again for another economics lesson courtesy of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez:
Billionaires need the working class.
The working class does not need billionaires.
— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) August 8, 2020
Er, who wants to tell her?
'Billionaires need to fund our massive social programs!!'
'We don't need billionaires. They need us!'
'Billionaires shouldn't exist!'

Something doesn’t quite add up in AOC’s economic belief system.
Says the one who is hell bent on taxing them cause we "need their money", lol. Okay lady. https://t.co/xT1aoMjqip

How are you going to fund all of your taxpayer funded "free" stuff without billionaires? I thought your plan was to tax the shit out of billionaires to help the working class, but now you're saying the working class doesn't need billionaires? Make up your mind.

… Except for all those times that the billionaires create the jobs and then pay the working class.

Exceptions to AOC’s theories do apply.
You need billionaires to fund your welfare state. The “working class” will not be able to pay for the elaborate social programs you have planned.

Politicians need the working class.
The working class does not need politicians.

billionaires make companies that employ the working class. they both work together to create cohesion. you can’t have one without the other.

You are currently on a platform run by billionaires.

Labor needs capital and capital needs labor.
You on the other hand need to foment jealousy in order to recruit people to your agenda and gain power.

How did this woman get elected to Congress?
She doesn't know anything about economics or business, but she wants to regulate and manage the U.S. economy. https://t.co/v2BoaxCyyb
