If you though Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez could not get any more of a Leftist Fruit Loop you were mistaken. Ocasio-Cortez claimed that people should be excited that you will be automated out of a job. This way she can tax corporations at 90 percent. Ocasio-Cortez made these statements in a speech she gave at the South by Southwest Conference & Festival in Austin, Texas.
“We should not be haunted by the specter of being automated out of work,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “We should not feel nervous about, you know, the toll booth collector not having to collect tolls anymore.”
“We should be excited by that,” Ocasio-Cortez continued. “But the reason we’re not excited by it is because we live in a society where if you don’t have a job, you are left to die, and that is at its core a problem. And so there are a lot of different solutions— a lot of different proposed, uh, ideas about how we go about that.”
Ocasio-Cortez claimed to support Bill Gates’ idea of “taxing robots at 90 percent. what that means— what he’s really talking about is taxing corporations at 90 percent, um, but it’s easier to say tax a robot.”
