Can someone please embed that I cant for some reason.

So how is she wrong ?

Love her or hate her she is tackling some real issues here, things each and every one of us should be concerned about.

There are no checks and balances for our elected representatives, both sides are complicit how can anyone find this acceptable, This is a bipartisan agreement to bend the public over and give them what they deserve.

No, she's not wrong... well, except for the last part about the President not being subject to laws compared to the Congress. The President is term-limited, while Congressmen are not. The President has more stringent requirements for office (a higher minimum age, natural-born citizen as opposed to simply citizen, etc.), and the President is typically scrutinized much more than Congressmen by the media.

The problem is someone always has to be at the top. No matter the organization of society, there is always a top position. At least in the US, we have the division of powers: the President cannot make law, the Judiciary cannot appropriate money, the Legislature cannot direct the military directly, etc.

I'm all for laws restricting the possibility of corruption; Congressional term limits and judicial oversight would be at the top of my list.

I think she has some good points when it comes to government corruption.

About what I've heard of her or read online - socialism is not communism, some on the left want more worker input into corporation decisions, not government control. There are successful socialist governments with standards of living higher than the U.S.

On the other hand, we'll have to see how realistic her ideas are. I honestly haven't researched enough about this "New Green Deal" to know how realistic it is or what's going on.

Listen closely to the last minute or so....It's a setup. She is trying to paint Trump as a corrupt President and Congress as saints who are restricted by laws.
How the hell does she think they got so rich ?

Why does socialism require billionaires to fund it?

But to create a billionaire, you dont need socialism whatsoever...

HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM

I don't think minimum age requirements and scrutiny from the media is what she was talking about.

Best part is jobs for those who needed and wanted them, the only people who didn't want Amazon where the elites.

ROFLMAO

Way to cut off the nose to spite the face, but hey it's great watching them pretend they did something great for the community.

How am I not suppose to laugh.

Then you got all these "Deep thinkers" telling us how its the best # since sliced bread.



Sorry if I hold off on drinking your kool-aid #s.

I find it more concerning that corporations have so much influence, corporations are self serving which is all well and good till they influence government at the expense of the people.

She's just pointing out there are no measures in place to stop any corruption should it occur.seems to me a little kinda loose on the whole keeping em honest cliche.
