Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez faced embarrassment after she promoted ‘Tax the Rich’ sweatshirts that cost upwards of $58 in addition to ‘Green New Deal’ clothing that is made from environmentally unfriendly materials.
The firebrand Socialist who constantly slams the excesses of capitalism announced that pre-orders were open for her new merch, which included another design that says ‘Drink Water & Don’t Be Racist’.

However, AOC’s ‘Tax the Rich’ swag is so expensive that anyone who isn’t rich would find the price tag eye-popping – a minimum of $58 which could then rise to beyond $65 depending on sales tax.

Similar sweatshirts could be found on Amazon for less than half the price, although one of AOC’s selling points is that her merch is “made in the US with dignified, union jobs paying living wages.”

Ethical consistency seems to be lacking when it comes to clothing that promotes her environmental ‘Green New Deal’ however, after it was revealed that it is made of polyester, a non-renewable petroleum-based fibre.

“At $58.00 for a sweatshirt, you’re not taxing the rich, you’re overcharging the stupid,” commented one respondent.
AOC recently called for the government to pay people to stay at home. That’s going to be one hell of a welfare bill if she also expects those people to buy her clothing line.
