Recently sworn-in Rep. Ilhan Omar called for a staggering 90% tax rate on high-income Americans this week; saying “we can increase the taxes that people are paying who are the extremely wealthy in our communities.”

The progressive politician was speaking with women’s rights activist Zainab Salbi when she was asked how she and other liberal lawmakers plan to pay for their massive entitlement programs and other liberal policies.

“There are a few things that we can do… 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,” said Omar.
