ㅤô¿ô …Alexandria needs to stop bothering the adults and go back and sit at the kiddies table.
ㅤ”On her Aug. 7 assertion that the ‘upper-middle class does not exist anymore,’ the Washington Post got fired up, citing data to declare that ‘the upper-middle class has actually grown.'”
ㅤô¿ô …WAPO is correct. But the “upper middle class” should be referred to as the “college-educated middle class.” Young people of the normal middle class can’t afford college—they are the “forgotten people.”

ㅤ"’Well, I don’t think that there’s any one head,’ Ms. Ocasio-Cortez, a democratic socialist, replied after giving the question some thought. ‘We are a collective, this is a movement, and I don’t think parties are ever about one person, but they’re about the contributions that each one person gives to the party.’"
ㅤô¿ô …Cortez is 100% out of touch with how Washington is operating and what the people want. Nearly all Americans, regardless of political party or cause, want a "king" who can bypass Congress. Because on its own, Congress has been unable to accomplish anything for quite some time.

ㅤ"In this two minutes of complete babbling, Ocasio-Cortez doesn’t bother to answer how she would pay for things — she just complains that since nobody else worries about that, why should she? She also suggests that government spending is going to priorities that aren’t important — even though two-thirds of federal spending goes to Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. Only about 16% of the federal budget goes to the military. The rest goes to priorities Ocasio-Cortez would likely think important."

ㅤ”In a study published at Vox, Brian Reidl claims implementing the full Democratic Socialist slate of programs — including a single-payer health care system, free college, and a guaranteed minimum-wage job — will cost at least $42 trillion. And that’s just to start.
ㅤReidl’s numbers aren’t based on conservative think tank estimates, either. His costs come straight from the Urban Institute, a left-leaning organization, generally predisposed to favoring large scale government interventions.
ㅤA single-payer health care system is the most expensive, at around $30 trillion (a number Bernie Sanders disputes but has not contradicted with evidence). A minimum wage job for every American who isn’t currently employed would cost another $6.8 trillion. Free college would run around $8 trillion.”

ㅤô¿ô …No doubt Ocasio-Cortez is a "person of color." But if she is of pure Puerto Rican descent, she is officially considered to be White.
ㅤNonetheless she is using non-Blacks’ tried and true themes of "I was born a poor Black child" and equating today’s injustices to slavery.ㅤ
