Last month, 28 year-old Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez shocked the world by defeating incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley to earn the Democratic nomination in New York’s 14th Congressional District. Who is the Republican candidate in this district that will run against this upstart?
Ocasio-Cortez exploded on the national scene not just for her youth (and dare I say her beauty) but for her unabashed embrace of what she calls "Democratic Socialism."
As opposed to Republican Conservatism. (Is there such a thing?)
In her official platform, Ocasio-Cortez offers support for free college, “housing as a human right”, “Medicare for all,” and a mandatory minimum living wage but she doesn't offer up the funding source for all of this free stuff.
Campus Reform wanted to know if Ocasio-Cortez's supporters liked the idea of "Democratic Socialism" and if they would support the government offering these services for... Wait for it, WAIT FOR IT... For free! So, CR headed to Ocasio-Cortez’s district, in Astoria, NY to find out.
My friends, behold the ignorance.
