Trump lowered my taxes.  I'm not a 1-percenter.

They were billed as a “middle-class miracle” but according to a new book Donald Trump’s $1.5tn tax cuts have helped billionaires pay a lower rate than the working class for the first time in history.

"Self-declared socialist AOC splurges on high-dollar hairdo"

This is silly. She's in the public eye all the time and has the right to have something nice done to her hair. $180 for highlights in a major urban area does not seem over the top to me. I'm actually not an AOC fan but IMO they should just leave her alone about stuff like this.

you and i spend $3 million a week on golf for the "president."

and that money goes into his pocket, since he's paying himself to use his own golf courses.

i can live with her spending her money on her hair.

Dementia Donny raised mine, and i'm middle class.

Got caught by the 10K limit to SALT deductions?  If so, that's NY's fault for having really high state and local taxes.

Isn't AOC a self-declared Democratic Socialist? Color me shocked the Washington Times got that wrong.

Also color me shocked the Washington Times spends space and resources criticizing a woman for her hair.

I think the correct term is Champagne Socialist.

It's her money, she can do what she wants with it.  I think it's silly, but she isn't the first nor will be the last to spend a lot of money on personal care and appearance.  Including a lot of non-politicians.

One can only wonder what it costs US taxpayers to maintain that insane bird's nest on the Oompa-Loompa-in-Chiefs' fat head!

well, golf is $3 million per week, guessing the wigs are about 100K per day.
