Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, appearing on Trevor Noahs show Thursday night, advocated for a moral and ethical economy that provides free health care, free college education, and bold action on climate change for the American people.
Were here to talk about wages; were here to talk about education; were here to talk about saving our planet; were here to talk about a carbon tax; were here to talk about people paying their fair share, and were here to talk about saving the country, frankly, Ocasio-Cortez said.
How do you pay for these? Noah asked the 28-year-old who defeated Rep. Joe Crowley, a ten-term Democrat leader, in the June primary in New York. [ ]
[O]ne of the things that we saw is, if people pay their fair share, if corporations and the ultra-wealthy for example, as Warren Buffett likes to say, if he paid as much as his secretary pays, 15 percent if he paid a 15 percent tax rate; if corporations paid if we reverse the tax bill, but raised our corporate tax rate to 28 percent, which is not even as high as it was before, if we do those two things and also close some of those loopholes, thats $2 trillion right there. Thats $2 trillion in ten years, and its one of the wide estimates is that its going to take $3 trillion to $4 trillion to transition us to 100 percent renewable energy economy.

I hope she keeps talking.
Add a carbon tax and make people stop driving ,yep she is insane ,people will never stop driving
I think you just insulted morons. LOL
Rainbows and unicorn farts.
Sounds just like Obama.
Uhh, our plan for rebuilding the economy is to destroy millions of old cars to force everyone to buy new ones. One of the lowest economic moments in American history.
He still owes me a pony.
The Shooting Star of the Demonut Party will burn out fast ,it’s already happening
” $3 trillion to $4 trillion to transition us to 100 percent renewable energy economy”
Then $3-$4 trillions EACH YEAR to maintain it.
You have to make allowances for those who can’t understand normal thinking.
Who lies more politicians or media talking heads? It is all theatre.
I’ll second that thought.
These idiot in DC, NY, LA and other big cities see the world through their little bubble. Tell folks in rural America, the life blood of our country, not to drive. It would be impossible. They don’t have mass transit.
This 28 year old child reminds me of nobama. No real world experience. And we all know what that got us. Thankfully she has to wait seven years before she can declare for the presidency.
I just found out she has a economic degree. Wow, the higher school system is far worse than I thought.
Any attempt at confiscation will be met by the 2nd Amendment. Fewer but better leftists and marxists
Never mind Bahston University.
This is scary. The fact that the people in the audience don’t run out of the auditorium laughing hysterically after about 5 minutes of Cortez’s insane drivel fills me with great skepticism as to our species’ ability to survive long term.
