Democratic "socialist" Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has been unmercifully hammered on social media after the so-called anti-capitalist promoted her line of over-priced merch that includes $65 "Eat the Rich" shirts.

AOC has carved out a reputation as a self-declared socialist and a vocal critic of capitalism.

In the past, she has posted instructions to Twitter for her almost 11 million followers to "Resist disaster capitalism."

Last year, Ocasio-Cortez called slammed capitalism as "irredeemable." 

The New York lawmaker also railed against Amazon constructing a second headquarters in NYC, which Gov. Andrew Cuomo estimated would have brought "at least 25,000 to 40,000 good-paying jobs and nearly $30 billion dollars in new revenue" into the state.

After Amazon withdrew from the deal, costing her city billions, it later emerged that AOC's opposition was based on her own misunderstanding of how tax breaks work.

This week, the democratic socialist fully embraced capitalism by peddling $65 shirts that say, "Tax The Rich" on them, according to The Blaze.

The socialist overloads must have looked down favorably on the peasants, however, as the price was later mysteriously lowered to $58.

The 58 dollars does not include shipping and handling.

AOC's merchandise website indicated that it would cost an additional $9.22 for domestic shipping, bringing the grand total for the shirt to $67.22.

The shop stated that the shirt would ship via the U.S. Postal Service, and "ship in 1-2 weeks + 2 business days in transit." 

Pre-orders were being taken this week for the "gender-neutral fit" shirts.

It turns out that AOC has an entire merchandise shop, where she sells a hoodie promoting the Green New Deal, made from 20% polyester, for a whopping $65.

If you can't afford the expensive long-sleeved shirts, you can purchase a strangely worded T-shirt that says "AOC + ME" for $27.

Instead of paying off your student loan, you can blow $27 on a "cancel student debt" T-shirt.

There is even a perplexing "Drink Water & Don't Be Racist" T-shirt for $27.

The AOC shop also hawks other swag, such as $24 posters and $25 onesies promoting the Green New Deal, a $28 "Abolish ICE" hat, a $27 tote bag, and a $27 mug that promote Ocasio-Cortez.

Many people considered the Democratic socialist selling products at premium prices to be "hypocritical," and bashed the Democratic congresswoman for selling such high-priced goods on Twitter.

One person, who seemed to be an AOC supporter and retweeted the congresswoman numerous times in the past, simply wrote, "Wish I could afford this."
