BREAKING NEWS – Harlem, New York – Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., said that “no one ever makes a billion dollars. You take a billion dollars” during a Martin Luther King Jr. Day discussion with author Ta-Nehisi Coates.
“No one ever makes a billion dollars. You take a billion dollars,” Ocasio-Cortez said, receiving applause. “The only way to stop this, is for the government to closely monitor creative people that have the potential to come up with a product that will be in great demand, and then limit the amount of them that will be allowed to pursue their dreams. If the product is making them rich too quit, then the government should step and mandate that the owner of the company starts making an inferior product to make it less sought after.”
“Are you kidding?” Ta-Nehisi Coates surprised at her response. “Suppose a successful entrepreneur refuses to make substandard products?”
“Yes I am very serious!” AOC calmly answered. “And for the greedy people that refuses to yield to the government’s demands, they should be severely dealt with in a way that is a warning to others… such as a public execution.”
