Not really. When I'm willingly trading the hours of my life for monetary reward, I'm not stealing from anyone. And neither is the person paying me for my hours.

That has always been clear on these forums. That's what I've stated on many a post. You are interested in mandated collectivism. And the "mandated" part is the reason I have a problem with your philosophy. Now that we've gone around in that circle, perhaps we can move on.

This means if she loses, (always a possibility) it will be a case of "smasha-you-face".

I've not gone in circles. I have been very clear what I want.

Yes you have. And again, that is why we disagree. You want what you want for you... and for everyone else via force/coercion. Not my philosophy regardless of the spoils.

There is no force. You simply have health care coverage.

Doesn't work like that. Somebody has to pay for it. Doctors do not work for free, and they shouldn't be expected to.

No, they don't. They work for profoundly inflated rates due to the fact that they know once the government and insurance companies take their cuts, they will largely be left with feathers.

Ultimately, the turnout of the Ocasio-Cortez experiment shows that your collectivist and coercive notions are still not popular enough to sway the public to your way of thinking.

Same things these guys said. When you see Cortez, or any other Leftist, in the Americas preaching Socialism we know how it ends up, every time But she knows so much better than us and history!
