Anybody agree with AOC?

Should we limit people’s success and wealth or seize it ?

——
“When asked whether “a world that allows for billionaires” is “a moral outcome,” Ocasio-Cortez responded: “No it’s not. It’s not.”

“She then said that she does not believe all billionaires “like Bill Gates, for example, or Warren Buffett are immoral people."

“I’m not saying that, but I do think a system that allows billionaires to exist when there are parts of Alabama where people are still getting ringworm because they don’t have access to public health is wrong,” Ocasio-Cortez said.”

Because seizing someones wealth isn't immoral at all? It does make for a good sound bite and will certainly appeal to the "free" crowd.

Why are people on the left so obsessed with other people's money?

"Thou shalt not covet..."

Most billionaires are neither.

Only AOC could get blue collar people outraged by pointing out that the increasing Gini coefficient is problematic. I look forward to seeing what other cherrypicked quotes taken out of context gets these fools riled up today.
