Yes they are stupid crazy and just plain wrong. The entire thinking process is like playing a melted record. ( for those of us who remember vinyl records). Even the old communist Soviet Union didn’t have these outrageous programs they just threw people into gulags or labor camps.

Reading a thread helps in not looking like an idiot.
It also helps to read the entire post of the person you are replying to including the post of the person they are replying to. I don’t need to read the entire thread to know what is going on, but it looks like you need to do some research before you understand even a bit of the program.
Until you understand the connection between Agenda 21 and the Green New Deal, it will
Be you who looks uninformed. Try reading Rosa Koire’s “Behind The Green Mask”. And then you will
Understand indeed that aoc is either outright lying or she’s just a useful idiot tool
Of Agenda 21. Oh and then you won’t look so foolish because you will then understand my post about bike paths and Agenda 21. Everything aoc says is wrong or lies or at best pie in the sky. Check the dictionary for “unsustainable”.

Anyone who says things like “ just walk outside” to know Climate Change is true, or “ just pay it” to convince people that we can afford her nutcase pie on the sky socialism should be immediately discounted from a serious position which will affect our entire country and that of the world.
So anyway, back to the original premise of the OP, which is what’s important here, Cortez’s ideas about taxing the rich are A) Typical Marxist rhetoric and all about redistribution of income B)not sustainable C) there’s no
Economic basis for any of it and D) if she taxed her own income that way she sure as heck
Wouldn’t be able to afford that place with the nice wood kitchen cabinets which says that she is also a hypocrite and will never make such a sacrifice herself for the common good.
Now back to that golden nugget one liner ....

What's funny is you said it yourself: income inequality is at a near record high. Isn't that one of AOC and Bernie Sander's main talking points, about why the economy isn't working for most Americans? Thanks!

Where exactly did she lie, again? I think I missed it.

Anyways, I am going to only address the Medicare thing, 'cause I don't wanna be stuck here all night, but...


Miller-Lewis referred to figures not highlighted in the report that show that between 2022 and 2031, the currently projected cost of health care expenditures in the U.S. of $59.4 trillion would dip to $57.6 trillion under the “Medicare-for-all” plan. That’s how Sanders arrives at his claim that the study “shows that Medicare for All would save the American people $2 trillion over a 10 year period.” (See Table 2.)


Wow, it would actually save us in the long term, according to the Koch Brothers of all people. It's funny when the opposition ends up making the argument for us.

For 2017 the total cost of medical expenditures was 3.5 Trillion, up almost 5%. You do the math. What do we have to lose?
So taxing everyone at 70 to 90% is going to
Pay for all that plus all the college education plus all the stupid Green New Deal idiocy and after that people are going to be able to afford anything. Take your own paycheck now and tax it at 70% and just send it to the government ... will you do it for the common good ?

Yes or no? Did AOC sign a movie deal?

Yes or no? Was her lack of a movie deal explained in this thread?

You didn't read the whole thread before responding and now you look like an idiot. It's a pretty simple concept.

Then you apparently did not read even the whole first page of this thread as I responded to the person on the first page who talked about AOC getting a movie deal. And actually I did read quite a bit of the thread. Probably more than you. But hey I’ll give you xtra credit for going over two lines.

I don't know... if people can't tell when Trump is lying why should they be able to know when AOC is lying?

Oh please, you guys are too smart to be this intellectually dishonest.

We all know some accumulated it from historic familial power, including from aristocratic backgrounds or even royalty. Others got it from corruption, including playing the political game, getting power, then getting money.

Some used force, war, etc, often in other countries. Some got some legitimate wealth as you are describing then leveraged their influence for ill gotten further money or power.

Obviously, this is not all rich people.

But please stop denying basic historical reality so you can support a dogmatic apologetic narrative.

Really?... AOC vision on "medicare for all" alone will cost $3.26 trillion dollars per year. You think the rich make that much money?... They do not make that much money, which means that the rest of us will also have more taxes to pay. And that's "medicare for all" by itself and not the other "delusions" AOC has.

BTW, you liking her because she makes republicans/conservative angry meanwhile you ignore the fact that she and Bernie would essentially destroy the economy of this nation speaks volumes about you.


Medicare for all will not ACTUALLY cost trillions of dollars. That is the cost of administration, the infra-structure and the underwriting of the INSURANCE INDUSTRY which is at the bottom of the real scam in the US. It's not MEDICINE (though they are charging too much), it's the whole insurance industry PIRACY scheme.

The insurance industry is not there to INSURE you. They spend the majority of their funds on hiring lawyers and investigators to DENY YOUR CLAIMS.

Remove the Insurance industry, put caps on their income and the income of their CEOs and top executives and remove the unfair and corrupt lobbying and put caps on who can invest in it (IOW regulate it to the max) and make the prime directive be to insure and help to pay for health improvement of and for the American People.

Yes it is... and like Obama did with Obamacare "medicare for all" will ensure that more people, not deemed to be worthy of life, will be denied life saving procedures, and instead they will be offered to end their lives.

We all now know that democrats in power do not care for the unborn up to the day they are to be born, and even newborns who survive abortions. Likewise, the democrat "medicare for all" will also ensure that even more people are denied life saving procedures, and instead they will be offered to end their lives...




Doctor: Insurance companies are denying treatment and pushing assisted suicide on patients

This is part of the mess that Obamacare left us with, and "medicare for all" will make it even worse.

America prospered under Roosevelt's New Deal. Tax rates on the rich have varied over that time, at times as high as 94%. Don't take my word for it, research it. In spite of this, America's power and wealth grew over this period, as did the middle class. Only with the advent of Ronald Reagan did the New Deal began to unravel, with his trickle down economics which Republicans still try to hoodwink the people. Take a look at average family income since then relative to income on the wealthy. Tell me what you see. Meanwhile, here's a hint. Income for average families have stayed about the same while the wealthy have greatly prospered, and while the cost of nearly everything has risen substantially. My question to you, why do you find that a good thing? And why do you think it is sustainable now that a majority of families live paycheck to paycheck, and 40% of Americans can't cover a $400 emergency expense? That does not sound like progress to me.

Hi I'm from Canada. You idiot Americans want universal health care trust me its fantastic. On average we pay about $30 a month and I can go to the doctor whenever I want, go to the hospital for say a broken finger. They fix you up, and about 4 hours later you leave the hospital without paying anything. You just walk out the front door! Crazy right!

Get your sh!t together America. Help the poor and the broken. Love all humans as one. Be more like Canada. Oh and shoot trump in f***ing face for us too. Thanks.
Love, a Canadian with free healthcare, a $17 per hour job and a modest two bedroom house, with a big back yard.
Peace out.

The Trumpz normalized lying. Hell, he made it completely acceptable. He lies and people don't even care that he's lying. He lies about the most inane pointless things. He lies when there is absolutely nothing to gain by lying, or lose by not lying. People defend his lies even while acknowledging that what they are defending is a lie.

Now you're worried about someone lying?

She's a politician. Left, right or somewhere in the middle, all politicians lie. Its the nature of the business, the nature of the beast.

Given that, of course she is lying about some stuff. They all are. In politics, left or right, we mostly choose to believe the lies that we like the best.



Do not use critical thinking and discernment here, it may offend the blind ignorant, on either side.
