‘Democrat Socialist’ Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Explains Her Political Platform. It Is Merely A New Name for Marxism.

July 30, 2018 The Daily Show 0

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez advocates for for free health care, free college tuition, subsidized housing, open borders, tax-supported renewable energy, and a minimum wage for everyone. To fund these programs, she calls for the ultra-wealthy should pay their fair share, and corporations should pay a 28% tax rate, to collect $2 trillion. She is clueless that corporations never pay taxes, because every penny of what they pay is passed on to the consumers of their products and services in the form of higher prices. She is totally clueless about economic fundamentals in spite of her degree in Economics at Boston College – or perhaps it is BECAUSE of her degree.
