Republican Texas Rep. Dan Crenshaw responded to Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Friday after she posted a video of herself dancing in response to what she said Republicans considered ‘scandalous.’
“I hear the GOP thinks women dancing are scandalous. Wait till they find out Congresswomen dance too,” the self-proclaimed Democratic socialist tweeted in response to a nine-year-old video of her dancing, which was widely shared on social media.
It is not clear which Republicans Ocasio-Cortez was referencing, and her office has not responded to The Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.
“No one thinks this is scandalous,” Crenshaw replied in a tweet. “Dance away (was actually pretty good).”
No one thinks this is scandalous. Dance away (was actually pretty good).
What is scandalous is increasing income taxes to 70%. It’s wholly unethical for anyone to work a majority of the year just to give their money to the government.
Dancing’s great, but ideas matter more. https://t.co/8RIShEJjAL

“What is scandalous is increasing income taxes to 70 [percent],” Crenshaw continued. “It’s wholly unethical for anyone to work a majority of the year just to give their money to the government.”
Just days earlier, Ocasio-Cortez embraced the term “radical” and advocated for up to 70 percent tax rates for the country’s top earners to transform America’s energy industry in order to implement her environmental agenda.
“Dancing’s great,” Crenshaw added. “But ideas matter more.”
