The nice thing about being a Democrat is that because you consider all money the government’s money, you can have an unrealistic and idealistic agenda. We’re talking bold strokes here, like saving the planet from climate change or forgiving all student loan debt and making college free.
Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ran on her socialist agenda and won, and now she’s trolling Fox News for calling her and some of her new colleagues’ Democratic agenda “radical.”
Oh no! They discovered our vast conspiracy to take care of children and save the planet ? pic.twitter.com/XYWXmi3Xyk

Abolish ICE? That does sound like a radical Democratic idea. So, are we just going full open borders or what? We’re assuming that free health care and free college applies to anyone who crosses the border, right?

We all want those things. It’s ridiculous to think we dont. The problem is we’re not willing to give up our freedoms to achieve them. You plan to confiscate our financial freedom to achieve it rather than provide opportunity for those who need it to achieve it.

The oldest of economic aphorisms, “there’s no such thing as a free lunch.” Your ideas are utopian and have no basis in reality or economic and fiscal feasibility. But, I’d be glad to enroll you in an economics… on another note, how’s the apartment shopping coming?

It is important to remember that healthcare and college are expensive to provide. Someone has to pay for their provision, so they cannot be "free" to everyone. And it seems reasonable, for example, that people who attend college pay the cost rather than people who do not attend.

It’s amazing the awesome ideas people have when they have no idea how it gets paid for. Maybe when you are done with those we can build an elevator into space and have condos up there

I don’t think you know what free means. Not sure how you grew up but nothing in life is free.

No, they've discovered your vast conspiracy to turn America into a socialist nation. You don't even know how you'd afford half of the nonsense you propose. The only way you'll get what you want, is through major tax increases, not only for the rich, but the common man as well. https://t.co/U9Uo8WWNjx

Wait until she starts getting PAC money and starts getting lobbied by special interests. The “fresh enthusiasm “ will turn to jaded politician in no time just padding her pockets like everyone in DC and beyond.
