Title: Rep. Ilhan Omar calls for sharp tax increases on the wealthy: 'We've had it as high as 90 percent'

“Through Her Eyes” is a new weekly half-hour show hosted by humanitarian and women’s rights activist Zainab Salbi that aims to explore a hot button news issue through the lens of a female newsmaker. You can watch “Through Her Eyes” every Tuesday at 8 p.m. on the Roku channel, and see full episodes at yahoonews.com.

Weeks after Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., made headlines by calling for a top marginal income tax rate of 70 percent in an interview with “60 Minutes,” her fellow freshman congresswoman, Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., suggested that the rich could pay even more.

“There are a few things that we can do,” Rep. Omar said in an interview with “Through Her Eyes.” “One of them, is that we can increase the taxes that people are paying who are the extremely wealthy in our communities. So, 70 percent, 80 percent, we’ve had it as high as 90 percent. So, that’s a place we can start.”

“The one percent must pay their fair share,” she continued.

Rep. Omar mentioned the tax increase as a way to pay for programs like Medicare for All and the Green New Deal being championed by Rep. Ocasio-Cortez.

The national defense budget is another area Rep. Omar has her eye on.

“I’m also one that really looks at the defense budget that we have, Rep. Omar said. “That has increased nearly 50% since 9/11. And so, most of the money that we have in there is much more than with we spend on education, on healthcare.”

Rep. Omar also spoke with “Through Her Eyes” about her Somali culture and Muslim religion, and about her very personal decision to wear a hijab.

“I was a teenager when 9/11 happened,” Omar explained. “And I really was uncomfortable with many members of our community feeling like they had to strip themselves of their identity in order to mitigate the violence and the fears that they were feeling. And I thought, you know, the best thing that I could do was to make sure that I was visually showing up in every aspect of society as a visible Muslim so that people can start to associate positive interactions with Muslims.”

Rep. Omar is also the subject of a new documentary, “Time for Ilhan.”


Poster Comment:

This Muslim Negress has very little understanding on how an economy works or of capitalism, which has created the most advanced economy in the history of the world.The very rich pay a good bit in taxes, create many jobs, and give to charity. We need rich people. The more the better.

She should take off her hijab as a sign of respect for the secular nature of the legislative body she is now a part of. The separation of church and state is fundamental, and she is there to do the work of the state. It The hijab is a religious symbol. She should recognize that people are wary (whether for good reason or not) and do what she can to downplay it as an issue.

“The one percent must pay their fair share,” she continued.

The top 1 percent of taxpayers accounted for more income taxes paid than the bottom 90 percent combined.

But that's not enough? It needs to be even "fairer" than that?

Its funny you can raise the rate to 100% because the leftist rich will just buy off congress to put in loopholes which will make their taxable income effectively 0.

Truth is the more I see the damage of the rich left I think there should be no deductions over the first 250K of income to stick it to the crazy rich who push socialism while hiding behind major deductions!

They would be crazy to support a system which would confiscate their wealth and distribute it to the lower classes.

Some think like the more sane amongst us do. Taxing anyone into the poor house is just plain stupid! After they get taxed at 70-90 % it will be only a short time before the rest of us are taxed into poverty.

Liberals are like Slinkys. They're good for nothing, but somehow they bring a smile to your face as you shove them down the stairs.

The death of entrepreneurship guaranteed. The death of small business guaranteed as well. Sloppy thinking on your part.

Well then they need to stop backing far left people!!!!!

I have no sympathy for those that push socialism on America! Crony capitalism is still socialism by another name.

One can only wonder if Illhand takes off her hijab while she has intercourse with her insignificant other. Not much pleasure for her with her mutilated vagina.

I am a small businessman getting hammered by crony capitalist ie socialist.

I am for small business. Big global business need to be regulated tightly so as not kill the middle class. There is no bigger friend to middle class than the small businessman! Big global business will turn America into a 2 tier system of peons and lords.

You would use the monstrously huge central socialist government to help small business? This government needs serious castration and relegation into the garbage can of history.

Well, there's always Civil War II to settle the hash of the evil left wing cabal that's willing to sacrifice our freedom in order to get joined at the hip to the globalists.

Fuck Mooslum deathcultists, especially from shitholes like Somalia.
I hope she doesn't disrespect MY nation's House of Representatives by wearing her religious female-oppression headrag on the floor. That's being insensitive to a normal culture and needs to be punished.
