Ocasio-Cortez argues that billionaires have no reason to exist. She's right, both morally and economically.

Ocasio-Cortez attended a symposium where author Ta-Nehisi Coates asked her if it was moral to have 'a world that allows for billionaires.' Ocasio-Cortez swiftly said it was not, noting that individual billionaires, such as Bill Gates, may well be good people. But 'a system that allows billionaires to exist when there are parts of Alabama where people are still getting ringworm because they don’t have access to public health is wrong.'

AOC continued to hammer this point home later the same night on 'The Late Show' with Stephen Colbert, explaining (yet again) that her proposed 70 percent marginal income tax rate would only be on money made above the first $10 million a year -- and that a similar marginal tax rate reached 90% when Dwight Eisenhower was president.
