- Free healthcare for all.

- Free college.

- Weapons ban.

- Right to free housing.

- Ban private prisons.

- Guarantee federal jobs for all.

- Abolish ICE.
The one thing I can get on board with is
- Guarantee federal jobs for all.

Yep, I can sorta, maybe get on board with the guaranteed federal job as long as it comes with an end to welfare.

Strange that her last name popped up again. Nothing scary about some woman thinking a hyphenated last name is something to slobber over. It makes her look fake. My opinion, and I'm sticking to it.

Not I. Jobs for all means vastly expanding federal government. Then there is the matter of no accountability for people refusing to work.

Federal job guaranty is just an expansion of welfare.

Well, I kinda meant that the welfare bums had to start working for their welfare.

I hear ya.
My point was that welfare isn't free anymore (like it is today).
If ya want welfare, work for it. It ain't free anymore.

I understand, except the welfare "workers" can turn into incompetent, permanent, cannot-be fired, paid welfare bums, courtesy of taxpayers. Just like the higher paid welfare bum goivernment workers we have now, and not counting out Washington. How about more private jobs instead?

Just cut welfare out completely, except for the old and disabled. Children? Don't make any if you can't take care of them yourself.

Sadly, I don't think that we can stop the gov welfare. Kinda pisses me off.

That will work only if you can be fired for not showing up or doing your job, and your next meal comes out of a restaurant dumpster.

Blaze needs some better stories, maybe a lil more "ermahgerd soshuwism OOOOOooooOOooo".

Also I find none of her views "scary", even Hannity couldn't pull that off.


Perhaps if you weren't so focused on mockery you'd notice that Ocasio-Castro is a self professed socialist or that her platform bullet points are consistent if not identical to what socialist Bernie Sanders ran on.

Bernie's agenda was estimated to cost $18 trillion. This is before the country is flooded with low skilled illegal aliens thanks to dissolving ICE. Ocasio-Castro doesn't tell us her policies would push us towards becoming another garden spot like Cuba or Venezuela.
