GOP Steve Scalise download Twitter debate on taxes with Ocasio-Cortez, a driven shoot to the ‘radical followers’ an allusion to Virginia

U.S. Rep., Steve Scalise, R-La., the fault of “radical followers” of U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY, in its decision to end an online debate about the U.S. tax rate.

U.S. Rep., Steve Scalise, R-La., abruptly, a Twitter-debate with a freshman Democrat, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez-New York early Sunday stopped after a minimum of three commentators made references to shoot on the of June, 2017, in the Scalise and three other people were shot dead by a leftist activist.

“sniping” be–,” a Twitter user wrote, in support of Ocasio-Cortez.

“She has better aim, James Hodgkinson, that’s for sure,” another wrote, the comparison Ocasio-Cortez, the Twitter reactions on the accuracy of the suspect’s shooting in Virginia, Bernie Sanders supporter, who later died in a shootout with the police.


“Kick his cane,” a third wrote.

Before the comments, Scalise and Ocasio-Cortez, was in the US, the Democrats, the proposal for the adoption of a tax in the amount of up to 70 percent on the income. Scalise had mentioned that Americans are “becoming more and more of their own hard-earned money.”


He claimed that Democrats like Ocasio-Cortez wanted to instead, the tax-to give Americans with incomes higher rates in order to, to radical left-wing fantasy programs.”

But after the Twitter followers’ published comments, Scalise decided after the end of the online discussion.

“Hi @AOC,” Scalise wrote Ocasio-Cortez. “Still willing to give this debate on the floor of the People’s house, but it is clearly not going to engage in a productive, here with some of their radical followers. #StayClassy”

Scalise tweet appeared around 1 p.m. ET Sunday, or about two hours after Ocasio-Cortez, a late Saturday tweet, the sworn in-members of Congress claimed that Scalise understand how “marginal tax rates work.”

“Oh, right, almost forgot,” the Democratic socialist wrote. “The GOP is working for the corporate CEOs shower themselves multi-million bonuses; not the actual working hours of people, whose wage + health care are you ripping off for profit.”

If Ocasio-had tweet seen Cortez Scalise 1 p.m. she offered no answer early on Sunday.

The 29-year-old New Yorker who stunned much of the political world in June, when she defeated longtime democratic U.S. Rep. Joseph Crowley in a primary and then won the state’s 14 electoral district seat in November, has been drawing increased attention in the media this week – both for the taking of the oath of office Thursday and for an expected appearance on Sunday on CBS’s “60 minutes.”

Previews taped CBS interview references to the Democrats in the 70-percent tax rate to the Scalise and the other responds during the week.

Scalise, the whip house Republican, was even seen on “60 minutes” in his first TV interview months after the Virginia shooting.

The 53-year-old Congressman from New Orleans, who represents Louisiana’s 1st Congressional District, of the “small miracle”, was he to reach on a daily basis during his recovery.

Also, in the Virginia attack were Zack Barth, a congressional aide; Matt Mika, a lobbyist for the wounded; and Crystal Griner, a U.S. Capitol police officer.

Scalise would later be published in write: the shooting in the book “Back in the game: A gunman, Countless hero and fight for My life,” was in November.
