A one-click glance at the “Tax The Rich” sweatshirt raises some questions, as its price is so expensive only “the rich” could afford it…
Conservative pundits and commentators took to social media to rip AOC’s merchandise shop for charging high prices. “At $58.00 for a sweatshirt, you’re not taxing the rich, you’re overcharging the stupid,” one Twitter user wrote.
