Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.) on Tuesday night deflected a question on whether she supports a Democratic colleague’s proposal to implement a top marginal tax rate of 70 percent on the wealthy.
Tlaib, the first Palestinian-American elected to Congress, appeared on CNN’s “OutFront,” where she answered questions about her recent call to “impeach the motherfucker,”referring to President Donald Trump, and whether she supports Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D., N.Y.) tax rate proposal.
“Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has floated out taxing the wealthiest in this country up to 70 percent, what she referred to as the ‘tippy tops.’ Would you support that?” host Erin Burnett asked.
Tlaib said the United States needs to get to the point where everyone pays their “fair share,” but she did not say whether she agrees with Ocasio-Cortez.
