Ocasio-Cortez Goes After The Rich?

Freshman democratic lawmaker Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Monday appeared to agree with the idea that a world that allows for billionaires is not moral.

The question was put to Ocasio-Cortez by The Atlantic’s Ta-Nehisi Coates at a Martin Luther King forum in New York City.

When asked whether “a world that allows for billionaires” is “a moral outcome,” Ocasio-Cortez responded: “No it’s not. It’s not.”

She then said that she does not believe all billionaires “like Bill Gates, for example, or Warren Buffett are immoral people.”

“I’m not saying that, but I do think a system that allows billionaires to exist when there are parts of Alabama where people are still getting ringworm because they don’t have access to public health is wrong,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

“I think that it’s wrong that a vast majority of the country does not make a living great wage. I think it’s wrong that you can work 100 hours and not feed your kids. I think it’s wrong that corporations like Walmart and Amazon can get paid.”

They pay their taxes, that’s that. eliminating some loopholes would be right, but not eliminating their drive to build and be rewarded if they’re successful.

    The Lord said, “It’s harder for a rich man to gain entrance into the kingdom of heaven than for a camel
    to pass through the eye of a needle.” Meaning, impossible. There are NO rich men in heaven. So,
    i’m discovering that there is more to Ocasio-Cortez than meets the eye. She could be one of the greatest
    politicians on the planet. God bless her.

    Well, m’am, I think it’s WRONG that there is rampant welfare FRAUD out there. Welfare is meant to be a stepping stone to financial independence, yet day after day after day welfare recipients make it their career goal to have one child after another when they can’t even afford one, much less five or six. How is it fair that these people, who purposely game the system, take away from those who truly need it – laughing all the way to the bank and grocery store because there is no legislation to stop them. I’m tired of my tax dollars going to support FRAUD.

    I think it’s immoral that socialism is allowed to exist-socialism forces the labor of ordinary people and then confiscates the wages to cover minimum needs for those who are too lazy to work and to enrich the banking accounts of the leadership. In places like Venezuela and Cuba the leaders live like kings while the citizens work long and hard days and don’t even get enough to eat. Anyone who suggests such a system for any country is as immoral as the socialist system.

    when the killed the rich and the royal family – set up a socialist state that finally collapsed because allowing

That buys a lot of beans and rice and sacks of potatos and vegetables and eggs as well as fresh chicken. My wife and I are exceedingly earthy and eat large amounts of all the above.
    Idiotic Democratsin all 50 States as well as the Federal government have for far too long attacked the producers of goods,services and jobs while rewarding improper personal habits.
    Democrats like this pea brained AOC havedestroyed the familyunit by encouraging single parent households for over 50years.
    The outcome is so predictable:
    Poorly educated children.
    More criminals.
    More drug addiction.
    Absent Fathers.
    Poor incomes.
    Sixty years of food stamps, sevction 8 housing, generational welfare, fast food as the main food source for the lazy ass single parents.
    I have been the “evil landlord” for far too many of those who will not work, keep reproducing and being paid to continue their destructive personal decisions.
    AOC grew up in an upper class family in an upper class neighborhood but continues to MISREPRESENT her true roots.
    If she is the future of the Democratic Party then God Help America.

    The ignorance of this woman is truly amazing. She is also a perfact example of the failure of our educational systems, especially at the college level.

    A better question is why do socialists exist after repeated mass failures of all attempts to establish any of their utopian philosophies. Socialism caused starvation in the first American settlements before they scrapped the idea.

    Socialists seem the think abborginal people lived in some utopian system, far from it. Land was definitely owned by the tribes and they fought wars over it. Land was so plentiful within a tribe that it’s value may have seemed not worth owning,. they owned land by living on it. Having no written language or organized recording of their possession did not mean they did not own rights to it. Most being stone age societies they lived subsistence lives. Farming was almost certainly owned by those that farmed it.

    And she wants to tell those who created “industries” which have multiplied wealth in this country, that they did too well and she wants in on the action.
    Her only authority is that she’s an elected official sworn to uphold our constitution. This doesn’t give her a license to steal under color of law!

    This Red Diaper Doper Baby is totally insane. In a free market society when a person gambles his person funds in a business or idea they will either be successful or go bust. People that come up with really great ideas profit by making a fortune from their gamble. When there is no hope of reward for ingenuity or effort there is no development and creativity. Why put in the hours and effort to succeed at something when a bunch of Limo Commie Terrorists are going to take it from you and give it to a bunch of social leeches so they will vote Demotard.

      You might give Dr. Savage credit for the “Red Diaper Doper Baby” descriptor as he first created it. However, I am in complete agreement regarding a person being rewarded according to their investment and effort. That is not wrong, it is free market capitalism and the means for the socialist’s wet dreams. Ocasio-Cortez is, of course, a socialist, and a pretty dim witted one at that, having no idea how to pay for her grand plans to give away others accumulated wealth but hers is basically an emotional response to those who have not the means to purchase health care or other commodities. You don’t solve that dilema with a socialist government, you solve it by making sure all have and equal shot at the brass ring, but you do not legislate it. That’s where the left falls short, among their other failings. Socialism will never work, period. That is why the feces known as Obamacare has to go if it takes a major effort. Trump must have the support he needs to trash this piece of garbage which was legislated by the Monster Pelosi and the Idiot Reid in the dead of night without vetting for the head socialist Obama (who by the way was never president).

She speaks and all the ignorance comes streaming out of her. She embarrasses herself on a weekly basis and not a demon-rat blinks an eye! Then again, they are as stupid as they come also! She needs to get a REAL history book and read it! This one really has NO clue! Must have been taught by the liberal “professors” in New York. What the hell is in the drinking water there anyway?

      Sandy, Don’t you know she and all her supporters are great problem solvers? Why, all we would have to do is get rid of Trump and put ignoramuses like them in government….oh, wait, we already have some, and look what they’re doing to our fabulous America! I wish every liberal who thinks everything is free could read what I read. Our local supermarket has a TRULY FREE magazine, “OUR TOWN,” for any reader.
      “Will We Survive?” by Robert Beierle agrees with you. He tells us with good examples that we all should read and study history. As we well know, those who do not do this are doomed to repeat it…like the events of Stalin, Hitler, Mao, Venezuela, and others who had deceived and are deceiving with propaganda. Only the ignorant follow.

Where’s the money coming out of to support these non-sense suggestions. It’s a shame that her parents has given her the “fish” instead of teaching her how to “fish”. The Education Institution that she attended, has given her ashamed degree in education. They should feel shame to produce that kind of students for this society. She has long way to learn.

    In common with all Democrats, AOC believes that wealth grows on tree ready for the picking and dam’it those Republicans beat them to it! She doesn’t understand that wealth is created and only by a small fraction of society. If she knew anything about economics and had an ounce of common sense she would be working to protect them because they are the “goose who laid the golden egg”. Alas, she doesn’t.

    Why do the poor of other countries choose the United States as a destination? Because the poor here are better off than the middle class in their Socialist country – and because there’s more opportunity to work here. Why more opportunity? Because we have rich people in the private sector here who use their wealth as a tool to hire the people who produce marketable goods and services. Taking money out of the private sector strangles the growth of the economy, decimates the productive middle class. Growing wealth gap? It’s a symptom of a growing economy. Of course the gap grows. If the income of a fifty thousand dollar a year worker doubles and the income of a million dollar a year executive doubles, the wealth gap increases – but the worker is still twice as well off until Ocasio gets ahold of him. If we exclude the ruling oligarchy and the drug criminals, how does their average citizen’s standard of living in their countries compare to ours?

Billionaires are needed, clearly, so that there are jobs for the lowest classes.. Wouldn’t it be nice if there wasn’t a poverty level. If people didn’t have to struggle to pay thier bills or create huge students loans just to get a job that pays $50k a year. She doesn’t sound like an airhead to me..

    We must not discourage hard work and ingenuity but I think we can set up the tax system to still allow a high level of wealth without it being totally ridiculous. If you look back at the tax system in the 1950s the very wealthy were taxed in their higher income levels at a much higher rate than todays rates, that didn’t seem to slow the countries growth. Does it make sense for a CEO to make 500 million when most in the same company make say 50,000? The CEO wouldn’t be able to do much without all those workers under him. Yes, they should be paid more but how much more than the average worker, 10 times ($500,000)? 20 times ($1,000,000)? 100 times ($5,000,000)? I believe the Japanese utilize a income ratio of cap of 20:1, so if you made $50,000 as a average worker the company CEO would make $1,000,000. The POTUS only makes $570,000 and one could argue he/she is the most powerful CEO in the world!

First of all you can cure ringworm without a visit to the doctor just by using anti-fungal ointment. If you catch it quick, it doesn’t spread. The idea that you need to run to the doctor for each and every little thing is what has caused us to be in the healthcare cost crisis we’re in. When I was growing up no one went to the doctor unless they needed to and they didn’t die because of it.

    She makes a valid point, some of you also have valid arguments. Simply put there is ethical problem with a ‘system” (societal unit) that includes such extremes,….people dying for lack of basics,….others lavishing with more than they can personally use. Can understand this better when scaling down to smaller societal unit, say a single family of 5. Parents make minimum wage and are on food stamps. Kids are entrepreneurs, one extremely successful made 5.7 million. Being pure capatalists, each one has complete ownership of what they earn. When parents go to renew food stamp application, wouldn’t the right thing be to deny them? Wouldn’t we force them to adopt a more communal way of dealing with their assets? In fact be surprised they weren’t compelled to do so on their own?

    Yes Ms. Cortez is for real along with ALL the Democrats in Congress, the Judiciary, the media, academia, and everywhere else you find liberals. They are all cut from the same cloth. They think America is the problem and its America’s fault for all the problems in the world. So for the past 100 years, yes even as far back as President Woodrow Wilson, liberals have wanted to change America to some grand system where government controls everything and everyone. But real history has shown this has not worked. Because even in a socialist government you will have its leaders take for themselves to get rich as evidenced by modern day countries such as Cuba and other third world countries. The only way to save America is to vote people like Ms. Cortez out when they come up for re-election and put real conservatives in their place. Maybe you don’t like President Trump, but if you don’t back him for his policies, then America is doomed because we lack the will to fight for conservative values and principles.

No one is entitled to anything unless you work for it and I doubt that she has worked much. No one is entitled to free medical care or housing or food –let her and Nancy Pelosi turn over there salary and open there house to shelter all of these who do not work,

    Apparently, AOC doesn’t believe that it is moral for anyone to earn so much money that they are now millionaires or billionaires, unless they are friends of hers who agree with her and can help her get more money and power for herself (which would explain why no one hears her complain about Pelosi and her other pals in Congress). Sounds like a bad case of envy to me. It probably wouldn’t bother her for a hot second if she became wealthy herself. If she did, you can bet your bottom dollar that she would do anything in her power to keep anyone from taking her wealth from her. However, she wouldn’t bat an eyelash if she took someone else’s wealth from them (especially if they are conservative). If the money is hers, she “earned” it and it is rightfully hers. If it is theirs, they didn’t earn it, and they shouldn’t complain when she and her likeminded govt thugs take it away. Someone pass the popcorn — this should be a good movie.

She seems not to know how anything works or is structured. All she knows is some blarney that someone fed her.

Where I come from, she’d be a LAUGHINGSTOCK with that mouth of hers! She’s even dumber THAN A FOOL, and anyone who listens to her is even DUMBER that she is. I think there was a movie made about her (Remember “Dumb and Dumber?”), and she would be a “natural” . . . Team Trump and her allies 2020.
