Team AOC Promotes ‘Tax The Rich’ Merchandise Collection After Met Gala Stunt

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) campaign is promoting “Tax The Rich” merchandise from her campaign store following her stunt at the Met Gala last week.

Team AOC “launched an email campaign Tuesday night offering up a policy paper” and re-upping her “‘Tax the Rich’ merchandise pitch,” according to the Boston Herald. The line first launched in December 2020.

“Whether the message is on a sweatshirt or something more formal, the facts are the same,” Team AOC said in its email to supporters, promoting the line. “In order to reshape our economy and make it work for all of us — not just those who can self-fund their trips to space — we absolutely must Tax the Rich.”

Ocasio-Cortez’s team decided to promote the “Tax The Rich Collection” after she wore a dress to the Met Gala emblazoned with the message “Tax The Rich.” While Ocasio-Cortez insisted that the dress was a message to the attendees of the Met Gala, the self-described democratic socialist received heavy criticism for seemingly hobnobbing with the class of people she claimed to be against.

According to her campaign website, Ocasio-Cortez’s “Tax The Rich” line has six products: a sweatshirt for $58, a tee-shirt for $27, a “dad hat” for $28, a sticker pack for $10, a mug for $27, and a tote bag for $27.
