Billionaires don't seem to be big fans of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's tax proposals, but they might want to think twice before dismissing her.

US Democratic Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez took fire for a Sunday night call with British Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, known to have anti-Israel and anti-Semitic views.

However, several of Ocasio-Cortez's followers were quick to point out the dangers of being associated with Corbyn, who has been dogged by allegations of anti-semitism in recent months.

The anonymous Democrat who spoke to The Hill suggested that Ocasio-Cortez should step aside and allow "numerous council people and state legislators who've been waiting 20 years" to serve in Congress to take her seat, which she won after her surprise primary victory against 10-term Congressman Joe Crowley.

Tablet journalist Yair Rosenberg wrote, "Imagine that 85% of Muslims polled said they thought a particular European leader was Islamophobic".

Ocasio-Cortez replied: 'It was an honor to share such a lovely and wide-reaching conversation with you, @jeremycorbyn!

Following the telephone call on Sunday, Mr Corbyn tweeted: 'Great to speak to @AOC on the phone this evening and hear first-hand how she's challenging the status quo.

"The left's blind spot in this regard can still be fixed", he continued.

"We need to lower that", Moore said. Do you believe we should have an Equal Rights Amendment? "We can not + will not move forward without deep fellowship and leadership with the Jewish community".

Just four days after the plan was reported, Ocasio-Cortez's re-election campaign had raised more than $105,000 after a brief fundraising effort, to be added to the $400,000 she had on hand after the 2018 election.

The motion, submitted by Catherine McKinnell and Ruth Smeeth, will be debated at the meeting in Westminster tonight and is nearly certain to be put to a vote.
