And another anti AOC thread. Never has a freshman congressman elicited such fear. LOL!

Fear? No. Just amusing to watch a freshman know-nothing who hasn’t yet realized that Washington is where dreams go to die.

I doubt that Alexandria could even find Sweden on a map.

Hopefully, some older and wiser members of the House will tell her to sit down and keep her mouth shut for at least her first term.

Is this a case where the OP is projecting?

Sweden has a done a good job on reforming entitlements. The U.S could do a lot worse in modeling after Sweden.

Sweden is not all white, having a large number of people with Asian backgrounds, plus a smaller group of those with an African background.

And as her comments state, she is talking economically, not demographically. Why is it when there is so much that could be argued against her plan(which is not a good plan), you still have to make **** up?

Ah, an optimist.

A realist. Imagining you’re going to have single payer, universal basic income, “free” college, guaranteed federal employment, and retrofit every building in America in a transition to 100% renewable energy all within 10 years is a special kind of optimism.

Agreed with others, it has been awhile since we've seen someone new in Congress generate such conversation.

Sweden is over 90% white. Does Cortez want The United States to be 90%+ white?

I doubt most Americans could find Sweden on a map.

AOC will be dialed back once she obstructs Pelosi on an issue.

It's been a while since an all out communist has been in Congress.

When did she say she wanted to move the nation to Communism?

Got to start somewhere. I like the idea of single payer, renewables on as many buildings as possible. 10 years, probably not. My solar panels are performing well. Less demand in peak summer which helps the electric company and saves me some cash and gives me a hedge for future rate hikes. Improvement even if its not perfection.

It takes a special kind of stupid to think that 1) it's realistic and 2) that it's the government's job to do it.

Her platform is communist.

Spoken by someone who barely manages to post coherently, who is under the illusion he even understands what communism is.....:roll::2rofll:
