  1. AOC 's Green New Deal is loaded with free stuffs!! Free Medicare for all (including illegal immigrants), free college education, free housing for illegal immigrants, free welfare for illegal immigrants. No free stuffs for white folks, only for people of color. She's a modern day Robin Hood. Tax the wealthly 90% and give it to illegal immigrants. Tear down the border wall and abolish ICE and Border Patrol.

  2. Socialism, Public Goods…. just a term used to make the Government control and theft of personal wealth/property sound legal, fair, right and just…

  3. AOC will become a MultiMillionaire in a couple of years while her supporters will still be broke….LOL, you get the government that you deserve.

  4. Cell phones, dental insurance, vision insurance, higher education, food, and any other thing given to individuals for nothing IS for the recipient basically free. You might call the goods something other than a free good or free stuff, but it is still payed for by the government with taxpayer money. These goods could not in any reasonable way be called a public good, since each cell phone, insurance policy, college tuition, etc. is distributed one at a time to individuals. Each product or service is issued per individual, and person A's cannot be issued to any one else. Each person must apply for and will get only one specifically for them. AOC is either spreading lies that she knows full well are not true, or has come out of college with a Economics degree and knows virtually nothing about economics. Her continuing string of stupid untrue remarks suggests to me that it is the latter. Even a person intentionally lying would tell the truth sometimes, and she has not. Even when shown to be wrong with facts, she ignores them and will repeat the same stupid untrue remark. I don't think she knows better.

  5. First of all..to the made-up lie that "AOC believes everything is a public good", that isn't true at all. She never said that nor implied it.

    Secondly,debt-free public college is something every other 1st-world country has and there is no excuse why we should not have it. And to idiots in comment section below who are claiming that they "don't want to pay for other people education". Newsflash,you already do..your taxes pay for debt-free high school,middle school,and elementary school. Why so desperate to draw the line at college???

  6. We want only one promise from you, Xandi. That is- "I will be going away forever now, and shall trouble this nation no more."

  7. Hey AOC , why don’t you work for FREE , Please lead by example and see how far this get you ,donate you paycheck to help pay for you FREE PUBLIC GOOD, these free public goods just magically appear with out the taxpayers, ENOUGH ALL READY.

  8. I certainly do not wish to pay a cent toward ANYONE's tuition, as the colleges are doing nothing but churning out America-hating, globalist, socialist lemmings.

  9. To AOC it's all fun and games. SHE gets to run her mouth off at will, while taxpayers PAY her 200,000+ salary and provide her with Cadillac Health Care Bennies to boot! I got some FREE advice for AOC……NEVER curse the taxpayers with your mouth full! Queen Antoinette Ring a Bell?

  10. All those idiots clapping YEAH FREE STUFF!! If you haven't earned it, it isn't yours. That includes freedom and rights. WE ALREADY HAVE FREE COLLEGE FOR PEOPLE THAT DESERVE IT!! You have good grades you get free college. Rich people want to waste their money on their stupid kids that can't really benefit from college that's their problem. The REAL world knows how useless those kind of upper class twits are.

  11. Honestly Venezuela is such a red Herring as an example of communism's failings. Remove the crippling sanctions and see how well it does then. Or do we not believe in autonomous countries with sovereign rights? Whatever, I hardly care any more, just don't send in our soldiers to die for their freedom to sell oil to our industries.

  12. The US already has many socialist policies that you enjoy. Public schools, fire department, police, military, social security, and medicare. If you were to look at these benefits and compare it to what you pay in taxes, you'd see that providing a service to all citizens (ie. claiming, as a society, that something is a human right), you'd see that doing so saves all of us Americans money.

    Every other developed country has had socialized healthcare for decades and they spend half as much on healthcare per capita as we do. This is evidence that we are doing something very wrong. The popular policies proposed by progressives are socialized healthcare (this would save us money since we no longer have to pay deductibles, co-pays, and premiums), college education (because we want to be an educated society and rewards those who get a degree with higher incomes, usually), $15 minimum wage (would actually save Americans money because we would no longer be subsidizing corporations, having to pay welfare and food stamps for the employees that they don't pay a living wage), and ending the wars (which have a 15% approval rate and would also save Americans tons of money). Many centrists and Republicans believe these things are too good to be true. But these proposed policies all have approval rates well above 50%. And they are pretty standard around the developed world.

    One may say liberals and progressives want free stuff, but by believing this, they are doing one of two things. Either they don't understand the policies and how they would save the average American money, or they are inadvertently working for huge corporations and billionaires telling the US citizens that these policies are all impossible and that they left is crazy for wanting them.

    As for the cost of these programs. No, they are not free. Money will be taken out of our paychecks just like normal when paying for the wasteful healthcare we have now. However, the private tax that would go to insurance companies is taken out as a less-expensive public tax towards the social programs. We would also not be paying for prescription drugs and other out-of-pocket expenses that insurance doesn't cover. Not only this, you would also actually be able to choose your doctor. As of now, we only get to choose doctors in our covered network. The illusion that we have a "freedom of choice" in our doctors is obvious. Not so obvious to people watching mainstream news and listen to their talking points all day.

    The overwhelming majority of Americans would save money overall. As a whole, by socializing something that we all agree should be a human right and providing it to all people, you don't have companies profiteering off the American people. Private companies are allowed to charge anything they want for services that the people literally need to survive. But by socializing the program, we all get the benefits, and the overwhelming majority of Americans will save money overall. For example, the cost of medicare for all is estimated to be $32 trillion over the next 10 years. However, if we were to do nothing, with the healthcare system we have now, Americans would be spending $34 trillion up to $50 trillion over the next 10 years. We can't afford not to move to a medicare for all single-payer system.

    The idea that Bernie's wealth tax would tax billionaires to bankruptcy is also not well-thought out. Imagine having $16.5 million. This wouldn't even apply to you. However, someone with $17.5 would be taxed 1% of every accumulated dollar over $16.5 million, meaning 1% of 1 million. If you think a $10,000 tax on someone with $17.5 million to help pay for social programs that ensure every American gets the same opportunity as they did is too much for the multi-millionaire, then I guess that's your opinion. But the overwhelming majority of Americans believe that the ultra-rich should be taxed more and I agree. Fun fact: The richest 400 people in America pay taxes at a lower effective tax rate than the lowest-income Americans. Figure that one out.

    There is also an idea that one should get punished (or at least conditioned) for doing something wrong, which everyone completely agrees with. But why is it that when Wall St. makes mistakes and crashes the economy, it is up to the American tax payer to bail them out? The actual cost of this bailout was estimated to be as high as $29 trillion. That's some socialism right there! But where is mainstream media in that situation? Why aren't they asking "how are we going to pay for it" when Congress approved that? When was the last time you saw Congress bail out the homeless and hungry? Something that would cost significantly less than the Wall St. bailout and Iraq war.

    The progressive point of view for taxation (and also a point of view of 1940-70s Republicans) allowed us to pull ourselves out of a depression and brought us into a record time of economic growth. Lower and middle-income Americans will still pay taxes, but the ultra wealthy will pay a little bit more. No, this would not bankrupt them. They wouldn't even feel it. The idea that they alone made the wealth they have accumulated is a joke. Billionaire's genes aren't that good. It was us, as a society, that created the environment that allowed them to accumulate billions of dollars. All of a billionaire's learned experiences put them where they are. Their succuss is a succuss of society. Their decision-making and risk-taking are learned habits that everyone, inside and outside that person's life, had an effect on. Now, a majority of Americans believe that it is time for all Americans to be given the same opportunities the billionaires took advantage of to be successful, and I believe that the rich should help out instead of lobbying unlimited amounts of money to US Representatives that pass legislation that would help them to make even more money rather than those that would benefit the majority of Americans.

  13. Every body should read or re-read George Orwells animal farm. Is that what you want for your country? That s meant for all nations. Capitalism should be what is represented in the movie McClintoch, with John Wayn. A fair day s wage for a fair day s work.

  14. Shes the new shiny "Michael Moore", the media is desperately trying to prop up the squad. Outside of Hollywood, academia or the media, they are just an anomaly.

  15. Love how they never address that giving people free educations doesn't mean they get a career, publicly funded liberal arts degrees are just worthless.

  16. AOC; riding on the back of Capitalism, and leaving a huge carbon footprint, whilst spouting green socialism ! And she's right ! Not only is she not promising "free stuff", she's not promising anyone anything worthwhile at all ! Just a hellish future of unrealistic nightmares, served up daily for everyone, every week, for every year she's at the helm ! ! !

  17. she is such a gross person. Andrew yang calls his welfare program the Feedom dividend. All democrats call this free healthcare, free college. its all garbage.

  18. stupid people cost us more money then educated people but i guess we know that since stupid people want to think education should cost a arm and a leg, while the stupid rich keep acting smart for stopping 'public' education

  19. Why is this socialist lieing useless loud mouth in our government?? It's time to clean house and take out the trash. Bernie is as much of a joke as she is. How has America came to this point where we let the new world order have power in our government. They are trying to devide and conquer and it's not going to work. God doesn't like ugly.

  20. Tell that to the residents of Queens who were hoping the job opportunities Amazon would have bought. She along with her communist-socialist allies drove Amazon out of New York, thus ruining any chance of the people who she is soppost to represent of job opportunities. Now they are relegated to depending on government assistance to survive. That's her aim, keep the poor on government assistance programs, tell them Republicans want to cut or eliminate gov programs so keep voting Democrats so as to preserve welfare and keep them dependent on program. SHE MUST BE VOTED OUT!!!!. She wants a totalitarian socialist government installed.

  21. Hey don't worry about Amazon. NY will make up for the loss by raising taxes. They already imposed an Internet tax and congestion pricing is coming soon. Thanks for nothing Cuntez.

  22. Don’t believe me? Ask for a definition, on Neo liberal., or even, ask, what the definition, of Wigger, is. Yeah, the answer, is indeed, racist. Shut these protestors/politicians down!

  23. It still seems Joe McCarthy was on to something. Nobody listened. Just the same as when Winston Churchill was ignored.

  24. AOC donkeyhead trying so hard to hide her false promises. In her next election she will loose her spot. She might have to go back in her old time sake job BARTENDER.

  25. She can promise or not promise all she wants. She's being challenged in her district and may not even be around after 2020. What a blessing that would be.

  26. What a twit. You have to be dead from the neck up to listen to this idiot. American people see through this flip flopping liar – she has learn to lie and believe it – just like the rest of the so called 3 + 1 – WHAT A JOKE!!!!

  27. AOC. Call it what you want Assclown. Giving STUFF away to get votes is socialist. I'd be embarrassed if you represented my district. Thank God you don 't!

  28. FOX, I am a loyal fan, but PLEASE don't send me anything ever again, involving that 1/2 baked dizzball AOC Bozo……..she makes my head hurt…and her constituents…..whew…..low-watt gaggle.
