At a recent town hall event, former bartender Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) told her audience that she’s tired of hearing the phrase “free stuff” used to describe her plans to provide everyone who “needs it” with, well, free stuff.
Open borders, “health care” for all, and tuition-free “education” – these are all key tenets of AOC’s political platform – don’t constitute free stuff, the junior senator insists. Instead, these are “public goods” that will somehow be “free” without actually constituting free stuff.
“So, first off, this is not free stuff,” AOC shrieked to her worshipers. “Second of all, these are public goods. They’re public goods. So, I never want to hear the word or the term ‘free stuff’ ever again,” she bellowed, as one of her followers yelled back in agreement, “These are human rights!”
A staunch supporter of Bernie Sanders, who’s also running on a platform of “free stuff,” AOC is upset at the connotations associated with the idea of free stuff, mainly that it implies endless handouts – which, to be quite frank, is exactly what AOC and Sanders are promising.
“I’m already hearing some of these neoliberal folks who are trying to, like, flip the script on us and say, oh, when we talk public – tuition for public college or we talk about public housing, they say, ‘Oh, I don’t want to pay for a millionaire’s kid to go to college,'” AOC went on to whine.
“That’s their, like, jujitsu on this …,” AOC trailed off as her words became inaudible.
“Let me tell you something, is that I believe that all people should go to a public library, everyone can drive on our roads, everyone should be able to send their kids to a public school, and every person who needs it should have access to public housing that looks like this,” AOC continued.
AOC and Sanders recently co-introduced their public housing plan, known as the “Green New Deal for Public Housing Act,” which would require $180 billion in taxpayer dollars to “decarbonize the entire public housing stock in the United States.”
It’s only a matter of time before the term “free stuff” becomes “hate speech,” meaning it will be off-limits for people to say out loud or write on the internet. The speech police have already banned identifying dangerous vaccine ingredients on social media, as well as talking about the whistleblower, so why the heck not ban “free stuff” as well?
This isn’t a joke, by the way. Leftists are so utterly obsessed with policing every word that people say or write online that it’s not outside of the realm of possibility that they will very soon ban slang terminology like “free stuff” that exposes the Democratic Party platform as nothing but a bunch of empty promises that make absolutely no financial sense.
“Free” health care alone would cost American taxpayers upwards of $32.6 trillion over the course of 10 years, which translates as about $3.26 trillion per year. Since this is roughly the same amount of taxpayer revenue raked in by the federal government every year — total — taxes will have to double just to pay for this portion of AOC and Sanders’ health care for all scheme.
“AOC is an anti-American, third world Marxist,” wrote one commenter at The Gateway Pundit in response to this latest AOC news.
“Leftist Democrats have no idea where tax money comes from,” wrote another. “They leftists all think tax money is free, and they can take more next year. And even more the year after that. Meanwhile in flyover country, the taxpayers are not happy with all the leftist Democrats blatantly attempting to buy votes with tax monies.”
