Former Gov. Scott Walker and U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continue to butt heads, and this time the two took to Twitter to express their differences on marginal tax rates.

Walker tweeted about marginal tax rates pre-Reagan, saying "Even 5th graders get it."

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez replied to the former governor's tweet, but instead of targeting the lesson toward fifth graders, she more specifically directed her tweet to "a far-right former Governor."

Walker quoted Ocasio-Cortez once more, then went on a bit of a rampage about socialism, effectively sub-tweeting the Democratic representative.

Walker left the battle with a tweet saying the last time the government had a 70 percent tax rate, Jimmy Carter told the country was in a "malaise."
