It’s no secret that newly-elected Democrat Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is about as radical as a leftist can get. On Tuesday, she tweeted support for a laundry list of radical ideas, which included reparations, legalized marijuana and student loan cancellation.
She also tweeted support for her so-called “Green New Deal,” a proposal to destroy the U.S. economy for an entire generation of Americans.
“A few social media ideas for public servants looking to build an audience: – Endorse Single-Payer Medicare for All – Hold Wall Street Accountable – Make Min Wage = Living Wage – Cancel Puerto Rican Debt – End For-Profit Prisons & ICE Detention – Fight for a
#GreenNewDeal,” she said on Twitter.
She followed that up with this: “A few more ways to gain traction: – Support a Federal Jobs Guarantee – Bailout Student Debt – Legalize Marijuana & Explore Reparations, Baby Bonds…”

The response on Twitter was pretty much what you’d expect. There was a lot of support, but a number of Twitter users took Ocasio-Cortez to task for her irresponsible pie-in-the-sky suggestions.
you are irresponsible.

One person summarized her tweets perfectly:
“Free stuff and pot.” That pretty much sums it all up. Of course, it’s all on the backs of taxpayers… But that really doesn’t matter to socialists like Ocasio-Cortez or her followers.
One person added:
This has to be a parody account.
