"You're the GOP Minority Whip. How do you not know how marginal tax rates work?" she wrote

My God, doesn't she know this man has been shot?  Granted he still has insane ideas about people and guns, but have some respect here.  Steve Scalise is being paid good money to not understand marginal tax rates.

What a vicious attack.
 
2019-01-06 10:03:00 AM  
Of course he knows how marginal tax rates work.

He's just upset because congress is scheduled to receive a $10/week raise and it's going to cost him a lot of money by pushing him up into a higher bracket.

Yes, Fox News made sure the screaming headline was "AOC followers allude to Virginia shooting".
Meanwhile, from the Fox News comment section on their article about Tlaib's "profanity" we get this

So spare me your right wing hand-wringing.

Not going to look, but they do enjoy the trope that Gen. Pershing has his men dip their bullets in pig blood before killing Muslims.

These people just enjoy the thought and some of them the act of killing non-whites. They also enjoy killing whites who are against their "cause".

These are the lowest common denominator. They are scum.

AOC is a Muslim?

She will be called whatever they need her to be to hate her and whatever group they're associating her with.  You know the game.  Facts are irrelevant, only hate manufacturing is important. Look at what the lies accomplish, the accomplishment was point of telling the lie to begin with.

Eddie Adams from Torrance: Of course he knows how marginal tax rates work.


And this.  Keeping the GOP idiot base ignorant about how marginal tax breaks work is exactly how they keep them cheering on tax breaks for the rich, and crying about tax increases on the rich as wildly unfair.

Says the Fox News supporter.

Scalise is one slimy motherfarker. He's also fairly ignorant to boot. It's really a shame he was martyred by that lunatic who shot at the baseball practice, otherwise he may have faded away into obscurity. Him being #2 Republican in the House is proof positive why we have to defeat these types with words and not bullets.
 
2019-01-06 11:27:17 AM  
Scalise is a farking traitor to this country. Or as Paul Ryan would say, "This stays in the family."
 
2019-01-06 11:28:21 AM  
Scalise started a stupid Twitter fight with AOC on public social media, and now he's upset that random internet people - completely unaffiliated with AOC - are saying mean things.

Grow. The. Fark. Up.

Oh, wait. It's the right. They are constantly triggered. Their blind rage is the only way they know they're alive.

It would be nice if the Twitter idiots wouldn't hand the right-wing propaganda machine ammunition so easily.  But after years of right-wing internet comments* advocating all sorts of crimes against humanity, they have zero room to complain.

Cuz Jack is just as alt-right as any entitled tech bro who mistakes his luck and marketing skills with actual intellect.

He should be mocked for speaking at a Family Research Council's Values Voter Summit. They are a pro Right Wingnut, homophobic, racist, pro White Puritanical, hate group, that lobbies for white Christian extremism.

Which is very much an anti-US Constitutionalism place for a US Congressman.


Oh wait, that's the Congressman that supports the ownership of most firearms even though they're not mentally stable, then got shot by some wacko with a gun, and now he's afraid of a younger Latino Congresswoman that can dance better than him, even before he got shot? Now that's some kind of 11ish derp tears right there.

same with the "Death tax", I' sure many a family farm qualifies for such.
- It's always been about distraction from the real needs of the country, finding that wedge and exploiting it.
- So the few can get rich sucking off the largess of the government teat,

2019-01-06 11:50:24 AM  
So the story here should be, if you ask the left, the fact that Scalise accurately points that some people on the left are scum of the earth based on the things they say on the internet.

Because we all know the left would be totally giving one of their own a hard time if they had been the victim of a violent crime and people from the right were mocking him over it... and he complained.

But you keep right on being blind to what you are.

While I agree with your point in general, with the bar for providing ammunition set at "existing" the point is a bit moot.
