She is, in every regard, an imbecile.

She's been made a fool of countless of times and represents everything against the US Constitution. An embarrassment to the democratic party given her naivety and blatant inexperience. All of her statements she claims as facts, have been debunked in beautiful fashion. From Unemployment, Medicaid for all funding ,ICE, and how the money would be utilised to shift the United States into a socialist country. All of which scream nothing of rhetoric and have been appropriately fact checked. Ben Shapiro especially has made her look like a twat. 

What's worse, is the fact the democratic party is virtually split on her Green New Deal proposal given the scrutiny behind it (paying those that don't want to work) and it's unrealistic concepts defeating climate change. It's beautiful seeing even Democrats blast her nonsense. She doesn't know how money works. 

She really is a gift to the Republicans if she represents the future of the democratic party. 

 

 

You do not habe a bloody clue what socilism means. Not ONE American Democrat advocates state control of the means of production, which is the cornerstone of actual socialist governance. Sanders, et. al are boilerplate social democrats.  To the extent the US has socialism, it is CORPORATE SOCIALISM, ie. corporate losses and costs tossed onto the back of the public, and almost all profits privatised. At least learn basic political terminology before spewing RW Faux News knee-jerk nonsense.

1. Her socialist ideas go against the US Constitution. 

2. She has been debunked on her statements regarding ICE, Unemployment, Medicaid, and how she will get the money to support her proposals. 

3. Her Green New Deal is currently split between the Democratic party given it's unrealistic goals. The Republican Party won't ever consider it given the scrutiny behind it's proposal to pay those who don't want to work. They also don't buy into the notion it was 'doctored'. 

4. She doesn't know how money works given if she had her way, there would be 4 trillion in new spending per year. Which equals the entire federal budget. She said all of which can be paid for without raising taxes. 

5. Ben Shapiro has made her look like a tit. 

 

Inform me which of those points, in your words, is 'wrong on all counts".

I've already named one in the form of Alexandria Cortez.:)

She wants to provide free tuition and free healthcare for all. How does she mean to do this? By raising tax rates nearly 70% on the wealthy. Taking their earned income and redistributing it to others. IE Socialism. Even that wouldn't be enough to fund it all. What's more concerning, is that she proposed banks to 'print more money'....

So again, tell me how this doesn't go against the US Constitution?

You don't have to be a Trump supporter to understand positive and negative rights. Rights that are given to us based on the declaration of independence.

Against the US constitution? Truly WTF. There is ZERO thats states anything about what overriding philosophy drives US federal expenditures.

Pro tip:

Socialism (or what you are latching onto as a false smear) didn't even exist when the US constitution was written. 

Try to at least understand basic poltical history before you post such rubbish.

FFS look at what the top marginal tax rate was under EISENHOWER in the 1950's.

90 to 92%

That was a time of unprecedented prosperity for the vast majority of Americans, with the lowest wealth inequality in the history of the nation. Wealth inequality is the number one interlocked statistic to the overall health of a nation state. It is determinate on basically everything within the society. The USA was close to the fairest distribution of wealth for decades post WWII. Now it is down into the 130th to 140th nation in the world. IRAN has more equal wealth distribution.

Also, you are acting like so so many will all of sudden get 70% of their income taken. BULLSHIT. It is only that high on income over 10 MILLION per year.

Pro tip

It isn't just income tax that will sort this. The US (and all nations) needs to have a 1% financial turnover tax (with a 1 million USD per annum exemption so small investors are not encumbered). That actually (if it was done) would make the higher INCOME taxes (perhaps ALL income taxes) unnecessary.

The US Constitution was written to protect your individual rights. Not the rights of the collective. Every American has a constitutional right, that no one can force you to do something that goes against your negative rights. Me having to go to jail because I don't want to give someone money to go to college, goes against my negative rights. They are using my money for someone else's consumption. Against my will.  So again, Socialism goes against the US Constitution. 

Me giving my money away for public goods, such as roads, police force, and military, isn't socialist.

The USA wouldn't be the USA if it was founded on socialism. The founding fathers were smarter than that. Look at the destruction Marxist ideology has brought.

A little bit of context would be beneficial here. :lol:

Pro Tips:

A. The United States would need the same economic competition as it was in the 1950's for this to work. So to suit this agenda, let's forget about a little country called China and lets pretend all of Europe and Japan are recovering after a world war. 

B. The government wasn't paying for Medicare and Medicaid

C. Inflation. 

D. The baby boom drove massive spending on productivity.

The 14th amendment of the Constitution. The right of the individual. The right to liberty and self government. "Every American has their right to control their own affairs, free of external government control." This is fundamentally the definition of our negative rights.

AOC wants to have free tuition and free healthcare for all. How does she intend to do so? By taxing the wealthy 70%. So I am being forced against my own affairs, my own money, to give it to someone else who hasn't earned it. That exactly goes against the US Constitution. 

I want to give my money to roads, the police, and the military because I consume it. Public goods. I do not want to give my money to someone else for them to consume. Especially when I get no benefit. Unless I am willing to do so, that is just theft. 

I have so far countered all of your arguments and you have yet to prove to me why AOC isn't an imbecile. Yet apparently i'm embarrassing myself? You support the future of the democratic party who wants to spend nearly our entire budget for her proposals, and thinks the solution to fund all of this is to tax the wealthy and "print more money" :lol:

If you must know, I am republican and didn't vote for Trump. In fact, I won't vote again next term unless Sasse runs against him.

https://www.law.cornell.edu/constitution/amendmentxvi

 

16th Amendment

 

Amendment XVI

The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several states, and without regard to any census or enumeration.

 

you rant on that is unconstitutional to use your tax money for other people's education, healthcare, etc etc etc (basically anything that YOU deem unworthy)

Oki, then, explain Medicare, Medicaid, Federal education grants, etc etc etc

try not paying your taxes because you have yer knickers in a twist that someone you do not like benefits from the government

Pro tip

Have you not been reading what I've posted. I've brought this up three times now :lol:

The 16th Amendment allows the federal government to collect income tax. Tax that goes directly to public roads and transport, military, and police force. These are considered public goods as these are goods we ALL consume. We ALL drive on the same roads. We ALL are protected by the police and we ALL are protected by our military. 

There is NOTHING in the constitution that states the government can seize my money, and give it to someone else for them to consume. That is down right theft. AOC means to tax me 70%, just so someone I don't even know can go to college for free. 

 

 

I honestly look forward to your hyped up response, because so far you haven't done anything to defend yourself nor counter my arguments appropriately.

Congress has the absolute power of the purse, it can spend money on whatever it deems fit, with the POTUS signature. If the POTUS vetos it (either proactively or via pocket veto) then Congress can override his veto and the money is spent. The ONLY thing you can do, if you do not like what they spend money on, is to vote in enough members to stop the spending you do not like. The SCOTUS can intervene in specific cases where there are legal challenges. Obamacare was such a case.

The SCOTUS found it CONSTITUTIONAL in National Federation of Independent Business v. Sebelius, 567 U.S. 519 (2012) The Supreme Court upheld the individual mandate to buy health insurance as a constitutional exercise of Congress's taxing power.

Thus my posting of the 16th Amendment as an example of Congress's power of the purse (both revenue raising and then appropriations themselves..

Again, you do not even have a basic knowledge of your own country's method of constitutional government.

The US Constitution is NOT some crackpot anarcho-capitalistic, minarchist, Ayn Randian Objectivist claptrap, or whatever else fringe libertarian pseudo philosophical ode to 'I got mine so FUCK YOU!' lunacy.

You want it to be, then vote in enough of your fellow travellers (not just at Federal level, but in 38 state legislatures too, as that is the threshold) and AMEND IT!

good luck with that buttercup!

Article I

Article I describes the design of the legislative branch of US Government -- the Congress.  Important ideas include the separation of powers between branches of government (checks and balances), the election of Senators and Representatives, the process by which laws are made, and the powers that Congress has.  See more...

Section 8.

The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes, duties, imposts and excises, to pay the debts and provide for the common defense and general welfare of the United States; but all duties, imposts and excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;

To borrow money on the credit of the United States;

To regulate commerce with foreign nations, and among the several states, and with the Indian tribes;

To establish a uniform rule of naturalization, and uniform laws on the subject of bankruptcies throughout the United States;

To coin money, regulate the value thereof, and of foreign coin, and fix the standard of weights and measures;

To provide for the punishment of counterfeiting the securities and current coin of the United States;

To establish post offices and post roads;

To promote the progress of science and useful arts, by securing for limited times to authors and inventors the exclusive right to their respective writings and discoveries;

To constitute tribunals inferior to the Supreme Court;

To define and punish piracies and felonies committed on the high seas, and offenses against the law of nations;

To declare war, grant letters of marque and reprisal, and make rules concerning captures on land and water;

To raise and support armies, but no appropriation of money to that use shall be for a longer term than two years;

To provide and maintain a navy;

To make rules for the government and regulation of the land and naval forces;

To provide for calling forth the militia to execute the laws of the union, suppress insurrections and repel invasions;

To provide for organizing, arming, and disciplining, the militia, and for governing such part of them as may be employed in the service of the United States, reserving to the states respectively, the appointment of the officers, and the authority of training the militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress;

To exercise exclusive legislation in all cases whatsoever, over such District (not exceeding ten miles square) as may, by cession of particular states, and the acceptance of Congress, become the seat of the government of the United States, and to exercise like authority over all places purchased by the consent of the legislature of the state in which the same shall be, for the erection of forts, magazines, arsenals, dockyards, and other needful buildings;--And

To make all laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into execution the foregoing powers, and all other powers vested by this Constitution in the government of the United States, or in any department or officer thereof.

 

Spending power

Under Article I, Section 8, Clause 1 of the Constitution, Congress is granted the power to lay and collect taxes in order "to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defense and General Welfare of the United States."  As required by United States v. Butler, 297 U.S. 1 (1936), Congress must exercise its power to tax and spend for the "general welfare". Through use of its spending power, Congress is able to place a requirement on states that compliance with specified conditions must take place before the state will be considered to meet the qualification requirement for federal funds.  Under a test provided in South Dakota v. Dole, 483 U.S. 203 (1987),  for Congress to place a  condition on receipt of federal funds by a state, the spending has to serve the general welfare, the condition placed on the state must be unambiguous, the condition has to relate to the particular federal program, unconstitutional action cannot be a contingency of receipt of the funds, and the amount in question cannot be so great that it can be considered coercive to the state's acceptance of the condition.
