AOC’s poverty package that gives illegal immigrants access to medicaid


DAVID: NEW YORK CONGRESSWOMAN OCASIO CORTEZ ROLLING OUT A NEW SIX BILLS PROPOSAL PLAN. IT IS CALLED A JUST SOCIETY. AIMING TO RESHAPE AMERICA’S ECONOMY. ONE OF THOSE BILLS WOULD GIVE UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS ACCESS TO MEDICAID, REGARDLESS OF THEIR IMMIGRATION STATUS. ANOTHER WOULD CAP MONTHLY RENTAL INCREASES AT 3% AND FORBID LANDLORDS FROM EVICTING PEOPLE UNLESS THEY HAVEN’T PAID RENT FOR A COUPLE OF CONSECUTIVE MONTHS. NOW OCASIO CORTEZ CALLS ECONOMIC INEQUALITY AND CLIMATE CHANGE, QUOTE, THE GREATEST THREAT TO OUR COUNTRY AND DEMOCRACY AND OUR PLANET, END QUOTE. SO WILL AOC’S SIX BILLS MAKE THEIR WAY INTO THE DEMOCRAT PLATFORM? WHAT DO YOU THINK, LIZ?>>WE HAVE SEEN WITH THE GREEN NEW DEAL THAT SHE AND THE SQUAD HAVE AN ABILITY TO SHAME OTHER DEMOCRATS INTO ADOPTING SOME OF THESE THINGS, AND BY THE WAY, SOME DEMOCRATS ALREADY ARE ON BOARD. WE SAW ALL OF THOSE CANDIDATES ON THE DEBATE STAGE RAISE THEIR HANDS WHEN IT WAS ASKED WHETHER ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS COULD GET FEDERAL AID. SO THIS IS NOT ALL BRAND NEW. SOME OF IT IS PRETTY WHACKY, LIKE GUARANTEEING THAT EVERYONE’S GOING TO HAVE WONDERFUL ROBUST HEALTH AND MENTAL HEALTH. I DON’T KNOW HOW SHE’S GOING TO DO THAT. I THINK IT’S TERRIFIC. I GUESS SHE PUTS THE WHOLE COUNTRY ON A DIET. I MEAN THERE ARE A LOT OF THINGS THAT ARE JUST SORT OF STANDARD ISSUE LEFT WING STUFF, LIKE RENT CONTROLS WHICH JUST SIMPLY DON’T WORK. BUT, YOU KNOW, I THINK — MY READ OF THIS IS SHE’S BEEN SORT OF OUT OF THE HEADLINES FOR A WHILE AND SHE WANTS BACK IN. THIS IS HER WAY OF SORT OF PROMOTING HER BRAND NOW THAT HER CHIEF OF STAFF LEFT WHO WAS SORT OF WRITING HER SCRIPT FOR A WHILE AND SO FORTH. THIS IS HER NEW BIG THING. WE WILL SEE WHETHER THEY BITE.>>IT’S HER ATTEMPT TO TAKE THE MORAL HIGH GROUND; RIGHT? SHE SAID THIS IS A JUST SET.>>YEAH.>>IF SHE WANTED A JUST SOCIETY, THAT WOULD BE A SOCIETY THAT’S FREE OF COERCIVE FORCE. THAT’S A CAPITALIST SOCIETY. IN A CAPITALIST SOCIETY, THAT’S THE ULTIMATE POVERTY FIGHTER. THINK BACK TO 1990, 40% OF THE WORLD WAS IN EXTREME POVERTY. IN COUNTRIES LIKE CHINA, SOUTHEAST ASIA, MAKE MINUTE MOVES TOWARDS FREEING UP THEIR ECONOMIES TODAY LESS THAN 10% OF THE GLOBAL ECONOMY IS CONSIDERED EXTREMELY POOR. THAT’S BECAUSE OF CAPITALISTS. AOC SAME OLD STUFF, RENT CONTROLS, WEAL FARE, MINIMUM WAGE — WELFARE, MINIMUM WAGE, THAT HURTS EXACTLY THE CONSTITUENTS THAT SHE PROPOSES TO HELP.>>I’M NOT GOING TO DEFEND THESE IDEAS PER SE, WHICH IS IF THESE WE ARE ENACTED IF YOU COULD ONLY EVICT SOMEONE AFTER THEY WEREN’T PAYING THEIR RENT FOR TWO MONTHS, IF A LOT OF THIS STUFF GOT PASSED AT A FEDERAL LEVEL, IT WOULD BE DRAMATICALLY WORSE FOR A LOT OF THE NORTHEASTERN CITIES THAT AOC REPRESENTS, WHICH TO ME IS DEEPLY ODD IN THESE PROPOSALS.>>I JUST WANT TO KNOW WHERE IN THIS BILL, WHAT IS SHE GOING TO GIVE TO THE 50,000 PEOPLE WHO DIDN’T GET JOBS WITH AMAZON IN LONG ISLAND CITY BECAUSE OF HER AND A COUPLE OTHER PEOPLE? WHAT ABOUT THOSE PEOPLE THAT SHE SCREWED BY AMAZON NOT GOING THERE? LOOK, WE’VE DISCUSSED THIS A THOUSAND TIMES. THIS MIGHT AS WELL BE CALLED GOVERNMENT GIVE AWAY. THAT’S ALL IT IS GOVERNMENT GIVE GIVE GIVE. I’VE GOT NEWS FOR YOU, GOVERNMENT ONLY LIVES BECAUSE OF WHAT THE PEOPLE GIVE THE GOVERNMENT, OUR TAXES, AND THEY CONTINUE TO ABUSE US, AND THEY CONTINUE TO TRY AND GROW AND RUN THINGS. THAT’S WHAT PUT HEAD WINDS IN FRONT OF THE ECONOMY. MARXIST/SOCIALIST NEED TO BE UNELECTED AND OUT. WE NEED TO GET PEOPLE WHO UNDERSTAND WHAT ECONOMIES WORK OFF OF. DAVID: THE PROBLEM SHE IS TO A CERTAIN EXTENT THE WIND IN THE SAILS OF THE DEMOCRAT PARTY RIGHT NOW. THEY MAY PARE IT BACK A BIT WHAT SHE SAYS, BUT SHE GIVES THEM SORT OF THE MARCHING ORDERS.>>NO QUESTION. WHAT’S ASTOUNDING TO ME IS YOU HAVE SENIOR DEMOCRAT SENATORS RUNNING FOR OFFICE WHO JUMP ON ANY BANDWAGON SHE TROTS OUT. I’M SURE THEY WILL BITE ON SOME OF THIS STUFF. WE WERE TALKING DURING THE BREAK, WARREN I THINK LUB THE
