Bernie Sanders and AOC's brand of socialism might work in a small state like New Hampshire, but adopting it nationwide will see the country become bankrupt. AOC's knowledge of history is laughably delusional and deficient, nor does she have the verbal or intellectual skills to debate her cause outside of playing the woke card. This is evident whenever she gets challenged out in public or on camera, and she becomes immediately flustered. Her "socialism or death" narrative is intrinsically appealing to the younger generation, but experience and wisdom would say these ideas are highly impractical. With America being known as the "land of opportunity", I'm not sure how I'd feel if everyone is given the benefits and rewards without having to put in hard work. To sum it up - AOC is a pretty face, but I'm not sure there's not much brains to her. Just my two cents anyway.
I'd much rather see someone like Tulsi Gabbard lead the Democrats. Too bad she isn't woke or liberal enough for the party to rally behind her. Not that it matters anyway, I'm not American thank goodness.
It will bankrupt US because US lets Trillion dollar companies like Amazon pay $0 in federal taxes. The tax loophole is created so the ultra-wealthy corporations pay little to zero in taxes. I guess it makes it easier for politicians to focus on debt/deficit, so they can pretend that Medicare for all is unaffordable (when all major developed industrialized nation has it), when tax revenues is low by design from onset. A design feature, not a bug.
I work in the US medical device reimbursement industry, it's mind-boggling how unnecessarily complex and bloated US healthcare reimbursement is... It's almost like it's designed to be complicated to minimize transparency and as a way to create jobs. Great for me, but bad for the American people in the long run.
