Megan McCain Schools Liberal Co-Hosts For Defending Socialism In America (Video)
Meghan McCain schools the other hosts in a heated debate about socialism on “The View.”
“Every democratic socialist who is going on TV saying that it’s good needs to start paying 90 percent in taxes. On your tax form, I think you should start paying the amount of taxes that every socialist in this country thinks you need to because if you think the government’s so good at spending money, look at the VA.”
WFB – Whoopi Goldberg opened the discussion by discussing New York congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D.) and wondering “if anybody’s discussed the difference between socialism and democratic– I don’t know.”
“Isn’t it more like– Isn’t democratic socialism very close to liberalism?” Behar asked. “I mean think about it for a second. Medicare, Social Security, garbage collection, the post office, the libraries, the fire department. That’s all democratic socialism.”
Co-host Sonny Hostin appeared to be fully in favor of Ocasio-Cortez’s Socialist platform and even went on to passionately defend it when Megan McCain lit into the pack of dingbats, reminding them of the famous Margaret Thatcher quote about “running out of other people’s money”. Megan McCain used the US Post office and the VA as examples of how the government should not be in the business of running businesses. The View liberals, however, continued to argue their points about how socialism could be good for America.
What is it with these privileged Socialist-Democrats like Senator Bernie (3 homes in Vermont) Sanders, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the self-described Socialist-Democrat candidate for US Congress? Why are they so anxious to cry about the injustices of the poor, while living very comfortable lives, thanks to the benefits of capitalism? While Ocasio-Cortez’s biography tells the story of a poor little girl who grew up in the Bronx and drove 40 minutes from her home to attend better schools, her actual upbringing was much different. Alexandria actually grew up in an upscale neighborhood, in a home that recently sold for a cool $355,000. Read more 100%FedUp.
