So Alexandria give them your luxury condo. Isn’t that how redistribution works? She’s confused by the difference between rights and privileges.

Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) demanded at a town hall event in the Bronx on Thursday that everybody be given “access” to guaranteed homes before anyone is allowed the “privilege to earn a profit.”
“We have to make sure that housing is being legislated as a human right,” Ocasio-Cortez arrogantly stated. “What does that mean? What it means is that our access and our ability and our guarantee to having a home comes before someone else’s privilege to earn a profit.”
The 29-year-old former bartender said that the tax code needed to be changed, saying that the government needs to remove “tax breaks for bad behavior.”
“I want to make sure that we connect some dots because when we introduced the Green New Deal we were saying what is a girl from the Bronx doing and talked about environmentalism that doesn’t make any sense, right?” Ocasio-Cortez continued. More
It’s not a “privilege” if you earn it. Everyone does have “access” to housing. All they have to do is pay the rent or pay the mortgage. If they can’t afford it in the place where they are they have the option to move somewhere they can find work more easily and where your money goes further. Nothing in life comes free.
The last time the Democrats tried to make housing more affordable for lower income people, Barney Frank forced Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to lower lending guidelines, resulting in the meltdown of the US housing market. Democrats should be kept far away from our housing market.

Love how they blame it in books and movies completely on the banks instead of those that forced the banks to lend to people who should not have been given a mortgage in the first place. Guidelines were in place for a reason.
