Freshman Democratic socialist Representative Ilhan Omar (MN) is continuing her call for taxing the wealthy at a rate of up to 90 percent to pay for “Medicare for all” and other big government redistributions of wealth. During an interview on the Roku show “Through Her Eyes,” Omar listed these high taxes among “a few things” to change to afford socialized medicine. “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.” Omar clearly flunked her macroeconomics class in college.

In an interview this week on “Through Her Eyes,” a new weekly show on Roku, Ilhan, D-Minn., suggested “a few things” to change when looking to pay for high-cost programs.

“One of them is that we can increase the taxes that people are paying who are the extremely wealthy in our communities,” she explained. “So, 70 percent, 80 percent, we’ve had it as high as 90 percent. So, that’s a place we can start.”

She added: “The one percent must pay their fair share.”

Omar also discussed her thinking regarding taxes on the wealthy during an appearance Thursday on “The Daily Show.”

“America has money. … We don’t have a problem of scarcity really. What we have is a problem of moral courage.
