Rashida Tlaib says that we need to completely change this country’s political and economic systems. On the economic front, she says that we need to give the workers the bulk of the money earned and leave what’s left for the investors. But under her proposed system, there would be no investors. People risk their money in the hopes of making a large profit. Without that incentive, you might as well keep your money in triple tax-free municipal bonds. Will the workers put up the millions in capital needed to start the business or forego pay for a year or two as they try to make the business profitable?
I don’t know about you, but I’m very leery of taking advice from a fundraiser for CAIR, or someone who tries to go into Israel funded by a pro-terrorist group and flies to Dallas on taxpayer money to meet with another pro-terrorist group. I shudder to think about to what she might want to convert the political system.
“The fact that there’s a sense of urgency for me and many of us, this beautiful rainbow of women that are coming in, we’re looking at each other. Many of us are moms, we like fixing things,” she added. “We want to do something now and people here like that.”
This is far from the first time Tlaib has accused the president of attacking her fellow “Squad” members. She told the Guardian in August that the president is actually “afraid” of women of color.
“It’s been very clear to me, especially this last week, that he’s scared of us,” Tlaib told the Guardian following Israel’s initial decision to bar Tlaib and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) from entering the country due to their support of the BDS movement. Tlaib appealed the decision, writing a letter to Israeli Interior Minister Aryeh Deri, begging to see her grandmother and promising to refrain from controversial, anti-Israel activities. Israel approved her request, but she declined to go on the grounds that she could not visit unless she could go as a “free American United States congresswoman.”
“He’s afraid of women of color … because we’re not afraid of him and we’re not afraid to speak up and say that we have a white supremacist in the White House who has a hate agenda,” Tlaib told the Guardian.
Under Tlaib, would the Muslim Brotherhood be in charge of the economy — or the politics?
