AOC: Taxpayers Should Give Everyone A Free House

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) says the guarantee to a home takes precedence over another individual’s ability to earn a profit. In other words, owning a home should be the right of everyone.

The New York bartender made the remarks during a town hall event in her native Bronx. She minimized the significance of her “luxury” living arrangements during the event, comparing it to a public housing unit she recently visited in Queens.

She even spoke ill of tenant-owned, for-profit buildings during the speech, pushing for the universal “right to a dignified home.”

As expected, this was received well by people with a brain:

So not only do Democrats think you should pay for everyone else's healthcare, now you are also responsible for providing them with a home!
