OK, I admit it - I'm with AOC nowadays

However, I think she's just ignorant (no surprise - she graduated in economics at BU?) of what goes on in Scandinavian countries....

Socialist Rep. Ocasio-Cortez Accidentally Endorses Social Security Privatization, Minimum Wage Repeal, Corporate Tax Cuts

SNIP:
During an interview on "60 Minutes," Anderson Cooper put this question to Ocasio-Cortez: "When people hear the word socialism, they think Soviet Union, Cuba, Venezuela. Is that what you have in mind?"

Her response: "Of course not. What we have in mind — and what of my — and my policies most closely resemble what we see in the U.K., in Norway, in Finland, in Sweden."

If that were true, then Ocasio-Cortez would have to abandon almost her entire economic agenda and embrace free-market economic policies. Because that's what those countries have been doing.

What she also does not understand is that those countries she mentions not only have a high income tax rate, it’s also very broad which means most wage earners are paying income taxes as opposed to the roughly 50% here. In other words, nearly everyone has skin in the game rather than just relying on the rich to foot the bill. That’s because they realize there aren’t enough rich people to pay for it all.

Interviewer: Your proposal to tax Americans making over $10 million a year, .05% of the population, at a 70% rate, up from the 39.5% tax rate they currently pay, would raise $720 billion over 10 years. However the aggregate cost of all your proposals over ten years amounts to $39 trillion. How do you plan to make up the difference?

Ocasio-Cortez: I was told there would be no math.

Her actual answer was along the lines of that it wasn't literally feasible but it was important to do it anyway because it's morally correct.

The Scandinavian countries have also historically had a homogeneous population, so Alexandria Occasional-Cortex should be in support of President Trump's immigration policies including the wall.

...because AOC says exactly what Dems are thinking and lays the Left’s agenda bare. Dems have always wanted socialism (control) but have cautioned being explicit about it for worry it will be too much for some in their party.
