Controversial Democrat Rep. Rashida Tlaib spoke at a far-left ‘Tax the Rich’ event in Michigan, where she declared “Corporate greed is a disease,” in reference to the construction of the Little Caesars Arena.
“Right now, I represent the third poorest congressional district, so I’m right at the forefront,” said Tlaib.
The embattled congresswoman went on to discuss what she called “the trade debacle that this current administration has created.”

Conservatives took to social media to share their thoughts on Tlaib’s remarks, with many pointing to socialism’s disturbing rise in popularity among the Michigan lawmaker’s colleagues.
Michigan doesn’t care about your socialist agenda.

They are looking to make a America a fourth world country. Corporate America is the foundation this country was built on. Not only do they preach socialism, but sounds like they want a dictatorship. VERY SCARY AMERICA.

Yeah because it’s not like the City of Detroit was bankrupt and desperate for new revenue after decades upon decades of Democrat mismanagement that destroyed families, schools, neighborhoods, businesses, city services, infrastructure, @realDonaldTrump
