Were any conservatives actually offended by the Ocasio-Cortez dance video?”

Shortly after video appeared of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez dancing barefoot on a rooftop when she was an undergrad at Boston University - video that was supposed to shame the freshman lawmaker, who instead wore it like a badge of honor - Valentina Rodgers made a prediction.

During an interview on CBS that aired Sunday, the NY lawmaker said she's willing to compromise with Republicans on certain issues.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez burst onto the political scene a year ago, defying odds and becoming the youngest woman ever elected to the House of Representatives.

"I think that there's a lot of people more concerned about being precisely, factually, and semantically correct than about being morally right", she told host Anderson Cooper in the interview that aired Sunday.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez began her term as the youngest woman ever elected to the US Congress with a bang this week by proposing to tax the ultra-rich at 60 or 70 percent.

"I set it up so that a beat drops when she starts spinning or something to that extent", said Rodgers, who was born in Chicago but moved to Phoenix with her parents when she was 2.

Ocasio-Cortez, whose tweet was sacked in response to a meme Don Jr. had shared about her on his social media accounts that criticized her and suggested socialists eat dogs, appeared to reference President Donald Trump saying in September that China supposedly respects him for his "very, very large brain".

The day after she was sworn in as the Congresswoman for New York's 14th congressional district, Ocasio-Cortez shot a video of herself dancing and lip-syncing to "War" by Edwin Starr outside of her Congressional office. Americans still need health insurance, child care, a college education, and so on (depending on circumstances) - we just have to finance some or all of that privately, and it often strains Americans' budgets terribly. That said, she is very new to all of this - she had never run for anything before she beat Rep. Joe Crowley in a primary last summer - and she makes beginner's mistakes.

'Of course not. What we have in mind and what my policies most closely re-resemble are what we see in the United Kingdom, in Norway, in Finland, in Sweden,' Ocasio-Cortez said.

His tweet included a link to an article that described Ocasio-Cortez specifically calling for the tax hike to fund programs in a Green New Deal.

Ocasio-Cortez has called the aim - funded in part by slapping a tax as high as 70 percent on top earners - "a wartime-level, just economic mobilization plan to get to 100 percent renewable energy". Your tax rate, you know, let's say, from zero to $75,000 may be ten percent or 15 percent, et cetera.

When asked about President Donald Trump, she spoke raw.

The controversy of the moment involves AOC's advocacy of a tax rate of 70-80 percent on very high incomes, which is obviously insane, right?

Cooper explained to Ocasio-Cortez.

Tax rates should be progressive, not fixed, she said.

Ocasio-Cortez's one-eyed House colleague, Crenshaw, complimented her dancing by tweeting, "No one thinks this [dancing video] is scandalous", Crenshaw tweeted. The top 3% taxpayers already pay more than 50%.
