Well the numbers are finally out for a first look at the 3.5T reconciliation bill.
Rich New Yorkers are already packing their bags as their total taxes will spike and the SALT deduction cap remains.

If you watch Kudlow you'd know how their really sticking it to small businesses in the bill and Biden's pledge to tax no one making less than 400K is a lie. It's insane....but that's dems under Biden.

AOC stands up for poor people, but poor people don't get to hobnob at the Met in designer dresses.
A ticket to the gala costed $30,000 A little much for AOC's poor people.

A little much for AOC's poor people.
Hence taking the opportunity to make a statement on their behalf using a
free ticket and a borrowed dress.

Who's wardrobe did that come out of?
The poor people don't have friends that can loan them expensive designer dresses,
They don't have rich friends and cohorts handing out 'free' $30,000 gala tickets to them.
What does she owe for these free loaners, tickets and swags?
Just yesterday she was knocking Manchin for energy friends he supposedly talks to.
Who is behind AOC and all the money and percs she is raking in?

All in the name of 'poor people' its just a cynical ploy to
to sate all the naïve virtue signalers like you.

It was lent by the designer, who received exposure and also contributed
to a making a political point.

There are Congressional limits to what gifts she can receive. I believe
the value of gifts are public record but I haven't looked into it.

Maybe Big Socialism? Somehow they're cashing in all those exposures. The
Met, of course, is the source of swag which is usually donated.

Woops! Off the rails. Points, though, for somehow preserving the
diacritical mark for one your favorite epithets.

And AOC being the genius she is....blew through that by about 34,950$

An "investigation" is supposedly underway.
Not like she can return it now.

Unless the gala is "free with contribution" like PBS pledge swag.

She sat at a seat at a sponsor paid table
That's a gift
It needs to be reported, along with the name of the donor.
And she complains about Manchin cronies!
