Socialist darling from the Bronx has nearly split the Democratic party, single-handedly. After her interview with Trevor Noah on Thursday, it’s clear she hasn’t thought socialism all the way through.
Even Ocasio-Cortez’s and her supporters have no idea how things will be paid for. Fox insider reported that supporters of political newcomer Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.) were unable to surmise how all of the monetary freedoms she is promising will be paid for.
Campus Reform Media Director Cabot Phillips asked people in Astoria, Queens if they favored her Democratic socialist platform and her mission of “Medicare for all” and tuition-free colleges and universities.
One supporter seemed to think Americans would be okay with paying higher taxes, saying “with a good idea, and a good reason to spend their tax money, people wouldn’t actually mind paying more taxes.”
Another admitted that they’re not quite sure what it is that they like about Ocasio-Cortez’s economic philosophy, but insisted that “I just know that democratic socialist is better than conservative.”
Her plans for taxes are no exception. Dan Bongino, former Secret service agent, former NYPD officer, and host of the ‘Dan Bongino Show’ destroy the socialist’s plan with logic. Take a look:
As Reported By The Washington Examiner:
Democrats would do well not to pin their hopes and dreams on congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and not just because she’s the kind of person to mistake obvious political satire for a targeted smear job.
The rising Democratic star has shown she is ignorant on a great many issues, including her own campaign platform, which obviously is not a good look for a would-be standard bearer.
Consider, for example, how she responded this week when she was asked on “The Daily Show” to explain how she intends to pay for her Democratic Socialism-friendly policies, including her Medicare for All agenda.
