Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the upstart Democratic Socialist who shocked the political world in the June primary when she defeated 10-term incumbent Rep. Joseph Crowley of New York, announced a “New Rule” on her Twitter account that bars supporters of the Trump tax cuts from speaking out about America’s healthcare system.
After all, she said, the money went to “freebies for people with yachts that have tiny yachts inside.”
But she did promise a lot of free stuff and reminded young Millennials to certain Bernie Sanders!
Here are excerpts from Ocasio-Cortez’s official platform :
Medicare For All
Improved and Expanded Medicare for All is the ethical, logical, and affordable path to ensuring no person goes without dignified healthcare. Medicare for All will reduce the existing costs of healthcare (and make Medicare cheaper, too!) by allowing all people in the US to buy into a universal healthcare system. What’s even better is that Improved and Expanded Medicare for All includes full vision, dental, and mental healthcare – because we know that true healthcare is about the whole self, not just your yearly physical….
A Federal Jobs Guarantee
Alexandria endorses a Federal Jobs Guarantee, because anyone who is willing and able to work shouldn’t struggle to find employment. A Federal Jobs Guarantee would create a baseline standard for employment that includes a $15 minimum wage (pegged to inflation), full healthcare, and child and sick leave for all. This proposal would dramatically upgrade the quality of employment in the United States, by providing training and experience to workers while bringing much-needed public services to our communities in areas such as parks service, childcare and environmental conservation….
Higher Education / Trade School For All
Roughly every 100 years, the United States expands its public education system to match its increasingly advanced economy. It’s now time to expand our national education system to include tuition-free public college and trade school….
Immigration Justice / Abolish ICE
It’s time to abolish ICE, clear the path to citizenship, and protect the rights of families to remain together….
Well, when it comes to free stuff the socialists are the best but I wonder how can they give away so many free stuff and who’s gonna pay for it?
The same question was asked by Campus Reform’s Cabot Phillips took to the streets of New York’s 14th Congressional District to see what the socialist voters would answer!
These voters are just crazy!
But Ocasio-Cortez is a strange young woman. I find myself feeling sorrier for her than anger or antipathy. Someone like Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders you can rightfully despise because they’ve lived long enough to show a well documented and indisputable track record of corruption, hypocrisy, deceitfulness, and even incompetence. But this one, pretty much at the start of her life in this world, is more to be pitied for her total lack of understanding on how that world truly works. The good news is that the more she is seen—and heard from—the more potential Democrat voters are left shaking their heads in disbelief. They may not be moved to run out and vote for a Republican but neither will they be dumb enough to give their votes to this strange young woman.
