    The interview was the first time the American public heard from her at any length. Thus far, most of her coverage has consisted of right wingers trying to depict her as an intellectual lightweight/wannabe.

    As always though, the right wingers have been lying and misleading. AOC is impressive in so many ways. Watch the interview to decide for yourself...

    60 minutes played slow pitch softball with this load mouth idiot. The whole interview was a big joke. No journalism, just fake news.

    Let me guess... tax the successful to pay for food, housing, health care, and schooling from K - Graduate School for the unproductive? Criminal justice reform via letting every violent criminal out because they must have been wrongly convicted because of racism? Discontinue law and order by eliminating ICE and all forms of immigration enforcement? Whatever this airhead dingbat said, I don't care. She proves the people of New York are as dumb as bricks.

    That’s a good winger - just “guess” instead of listening to her.

    Go back to Fox Noise - they’re always happy to reinforce your brainwashing.

    I've heard her speak before, that's basically what she said.

    Not even close. But I’m sure that’s what your brainwashers tell you.

    That doesn’t even make sense. The “successful” (on your terms) and the “unproductive” are heavily overlapping groups.

    That’s just a dumbass label wingers attach to her so they can avoid addressing any specifics.

    Let me know if you’re up to addressing the specifics of what she said.

    Much like Bernie, she can't tell us how she'd pay for anything. Somehow politicians must learn to live with a budget. They cannot perpetually raise spending without coming to terms with the damage they do. SS is in trouble. It is not a low priority issue, because projections for cutting benefits for all recipients by 2030 would be a disaster at the rate mentioned (25%). Reducing a huge chunk of the consumer economy by that much would hurt everyone.

    Interest on the debt is now something like the 4th largest item in the budget....FIX IT.
    Bull shit spending on the Railroad museum in PA or the parking lot in Talkeetna Alaska have to end. These things are not of interest to the federal government, which has no federal buildings in Talkeetna. Hell, the federal government spends $17,000 for every man woman and child in Alaska. 40,000 civilians in Alaska are on the Fed payroll.

    Pentagon accounting errors are going to pay for all the free shit she's pushing. Really, ask @Bugsy McGurk...

    Alexandria occasional Kotex shows what an idiot she is. How can Democrats elect people so completely void of basic common sense

    She copped to using inartful language.

    Unlike your cult leader Trump, who tells an average of 15 documented public lies per day and never retracts them.

    But Trump is your guy.

    Sure she does. You may not like her proposals, but she does say how she would pay for things, principally through much higher taxes on the very wealthy.

    And things that some think would cost a lot would actually save us money. Take universal health care coverage, for example. Add up what we currently pay for insurance premiums and health care-related taxation and that greatly exceeds what universal health coverage would cost. That’s why most western democracies have it.

    Higher tax rates won’t bring in the $32 Trillion her healthcare scheme would cost.

    She is a bubble headed idiot.....and you think she is a genius. Says a lot about your intelligence level, Bug.
