Also marketing ‘Green New Deal’ merch that is environmentally unfriendly.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez faced embarrassment after she promoted ‘Tax the Rich’ sweatshirts that cost upwards of $58 in addition to ‘Green New Deal’ clothing that is made from environmentally unfriendly materials.
The firebrand Socialist who constantly slams the excesses of capitalism announced that pre-orders were open for her new merch, which included another design that says ‘Drink Water & Don’t Be Racist’.
However, AOC’s ‘Tax the Rich’ swag is so expensive that anyone who isn’t rich would find the price tag eye-popping – a minimum of $58 which could then rise to beyond $65 depending on sales tax.
Similar sweatshirts could be found on Amazon for less than half the price, although one of AOC’s selling points is that her merch is “made in the US with dignified, union jobs paying living wages.”
