New York Congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is very young. She’s only 28-years-old.

Unfortunately for the people who voted for her in the primary election, Ocasio-Cortez seems to continually show she doesn’t know what she’s talking about.

For example, the GOP wants to once again cut taxes for Americans.

Trending: BREAKING: Kavanaugh Accuser May NOT Show Up to Thursday Hearing (Details)

Ocasio-Cortez thinks this is a bad idea for one wild reason, leading one respondent to note she made the “dumbest talking point ever.”

Reactions:

On the proposed new round of tax cuts, from The Hill:

House GOP leaders insisted Wednesday that they plan to hold a floor vote this month on a second round of tax cuts, dismissing reports that they may drop such an effort.

“Correct,” Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) told reporters when asked if there would be a floor vote in September.

“On the floor,” House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) added.

Continued:

House Republicans have been working on a package of legislation to build on the tax-cut law that they passed last December.

The central component of the new legislative package would be to permanently extend the tax changes for individuals from the 2017 law. Those provisions were made temporary in order to comply with budget rules that allowed the law to pass the Senate with a simple-majority vote.

If tax cut 2.0 makes its way into law after being voted upon by Congress, is there any way President Donald Trump loses his reelection bid come 2020?

The answer is most likely no.

While Democrats will campaign harder than ever before in order to get Trump out of office, Republicans will be just as determined (if not more) to keep a far-left progressive, such as Sens. Elizabeth Warren (MA), Kamala Harris (CA), Cory Booker (NJ), Bernie Sanders (VT), Eric Holder and Joe Biden, as far away as possible from the White House.

More on the proposed cuts:

House Republicans have been working with the White House on a second package of tax cuts. They see the package as smart politics ahead of the midterms, to help remind voters about the law they passed last year and to expand upon it.

But the central feature of the package — permanently extending the 2017 tax law’s cuts for individuals — is unlikely to pass the Senate and may not even get a vote there.

Brady released a two-page framework for the tax package and met with a group of House GOP lawmakers on Tuesday afternoon to discuss it.

Continued:

“It was just an excellent listening session, [a] first step,” he said.

The proposal has three main components, which will likely form the basis for three separate bills.

The centerpiece of the package is to make the individual tax cuts permanent.

The law’s individual tax changes — which include lower rates, a larger standard deduction and child tax credit, and a new deduction for pass-through business income — expire after 2025. That’s because Republicans used a process, known as “reconciliation,” that allowed the bill to pass with just a simple majority in the Senate but also required the bill to not add to the deficit after 10 years.
