It was insane enough when Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez likened her luxury D.C. apartment to New York City public housing.

But this … this is arguably even worse:
Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY): “Our guarantee to having a home comes before someone else’s privilege to earn a profit.” pic.twitter.com/B1qSCK57OQ

We cannot. We literally cannot.
Are the home builders allowed a profit?

People are gonna live in really crappy apartments if landlords can't make a profit.

AOC, the economic moron. That deluxe apartment she rents exists because of profit.

Since when was owning a home a right that was to be guaranteed by the gov't?

Never. Since never.
I was batting for her to be getting better but she clearly doesn't understand how any of this works.

Honestly, if AOC didn’t already exist, we’d have to invent her.

Holy crap. 😳

She is nuts.

She is … a socialist.
The fact that you believe it’s a “privilege” for one to go out and do something valuable in exchange for compensation above its cost in an effort to support one’s health, safety, and lifestyle is precisely why so many people call you “stupid.” https://t.co/MNot0PmRvt

And, even more frighteningly, why so many people love her.
The scariest part isn't that she made such a crazy statement, but that there are people clapping and hollering in agreement with such insanity.
