    She’s amazing. An actual fighter of the people who keeps clapping back at corporatists and out of touch elites.

    The clueless corporate media is going to f--- around and make her President one day.

    She’s awesome! I love her use of IG live & now twitch to talk about her experiences in Washington + current issues. This is how you get youth involved in politics, you go to their platforms! She’s the first congressperson ever to do it on this scale.

    I feel sad Socialist ideas are gaining popularity in the US, I’m not Republican or Trump supporter, I’m more of a Libertarian.

    This Woman says so many ignorant/populist things it makes me cringe, trust me if someone with ideas like these become president it would be sad. And i mostly say this from an Economic point of view.

    These guys want free healthcare, college, raise wages which i think it’s great but reality is that nothing is free in this world, someone will always pay for it and their way to do it is just by increasing tax rates they don’t know how to produce so just take money from the rich to pay.

    I’m From Venezuela, i won’t say it could get to that point because here in the US is different but it’s a proof Goverment shouldn’t and can’t take care of everyhing.

    These Democratic policies all they do is make people more dependant on social programs, Goverments should create conditions so you do everything on your own however i do support a mixed system of education and health, that’s fine but in different terms. ‘Democratic Socialism’ is not the way to end corporatism or monopolies.

    @Old_Parr She’s a Social Democrat. She wants a Scandinavian model of politics. Tax the super wealthy and finally hold them accountable. They have hidden so much tax $$ for years and it has screwed regular folks over. Regular folks end up picking up the tax burden.

    Taxing the rich and holding corporations and Wall St. accountable was the US system from FDR until the mid 70s or so. Since then corporations and the super wealthy have bought off our government, which has put a burden on the working class. Wages have been stagnant since the 80s even though work productivity has increased. She wants to give the power back to the people and finally hold the elite accountable.

    Oh and it saves 2 trillion over 10 years to implement a Medicare For All system. It costs more to keep providing healthcare through for profit private health insurance companies. You want to keep the s-----y system we have? It has been proven to be a failure.

    And it’s the moral thing to do. Thousands of citizens die each year because they can’t afford basic healthcare. And medical bills are out of control in the US. Medicare For All is the way to go. Everyone is covered and it’s cheaper than the system we currently have

    Your libertarian s--- doesn’t work, homie. AOC is in favor of policies that have been proven to work under FDR till mid 70s. And Sweden, Denmark, Norway, etc are flourishing due to social democracy policies.

    @Old_Parr Republican President Eisenhower had a top marginal tax rate of 91%. That’s even higher than AOC’s top marginal tax rate idea of 70%.

    Only roughly 16,000 super rich folks would be hit by that tax. And the 70% is ONLY for money OVER 10 million dollars! Regular folks would not be taxed 70% like dumbass right wingers think.

    Liberals like AOC want to provide healthcare, education, green and renewable energy jobs and equality for all. She reasonably lays out how it’s all paid for and she still gets smeared by idiots. She’s a true champion of the people and some regular working class folks still s--- on her. Unreal.

    Accountable for what? I bet you -and the majority- try to minimize tax amounts, thats what they do, man these politicians make laws with loopholes to take advantage but the people gets f-----.

    It’s outrageous that if you make 10 Millions and then they take 7 from you, that s--- would make Not work hard. If you think they hide taxes imagine how would it be with a 70%. It slows down production and gives more power to goverment. That’s a limitation for the qualified individual to progress. ‘Yeah but it creates Equality’ Well we should try being Equally rich -or at least decent living- not Equally poor

    if you don’t pay then you go to jail, d--- homie. And if a Republican did that its still wrong - and again im not a Republican. I support a true Open Market Economy with Social Freedom.

    Each case has an exception of course and by the way this the Danish PM speaking himself



    Nothing against you im just very passionate about politics.

    Nope, she’s not even 30 yet! Boy when she hits the eligible age to run though, she’s going to have a h--- of a base! I mean, she’s already a superstar & she’s only been around a couple months lol. She has at least 5 more years to gain experience & reach out before she can even decide to run (idk if she’d even be eligible to run in 2024).

    if she wants to run down the line, she should aim for another office first, or should leave the house to take some sort of community organizing gig.

    Another office most def. The senate would be the obvious goal but I think a governorship or even mayorship would be solid.

    People still believe policies that benefit countries with a population of 5 million would work under a population of 400 million lol

    If she becomes President (which, she never will) this s--- would turn into Venezuela so fast Karl Marx would barrel roll in his grave

    Was totally on her side over the dancing video fiasco, but almost all of her ideas are ridiculous and the dudes jumping up to support her (because of her looks) are embarrassing to watch

    Broad is Bernie with good looks. A "democratic socialist" whackjob that simping a--- dudes pop boners to

    You guys do realize a lot of her “whack job” ideas not only work in other developed countries (I’m not talking about Sweden or Switzerland either) but have been implemented here in the past. The marginal tax rate was 70% back in the 50s/60s under presidents from both parties. Everyone hears the word socialist & automatically thinks worst case scenario lol.
