    AOC Learns The 'Free Market' Isn't A Grocery Store Where You Don't Have To Pay

    WASHINGTON, D.C.óRepresentative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has struggled to get by on her new six-figure salary, given the high cost of living in her luxurious Washington, D.C. crib.



    So when she heard in passing that the United States has a "free market" economy, she was ecstatic. She immediately set out in an Uber to try to find one of the free markets, assuming they were grocery stores where you don't have to pay for anything.

    "I'm really, like really excited," she said on a live Instagram video. "I thought the U.S. was all about oppressive capitalistic systems of inequality, but when I heard about these free markets, I realized we were in better shape than I had thought."

    However, after her Uber had driven her all over the city for several hours, she hadn't found a single free market anywhere and had to settle for going to some stores where people are free to buy, sell, and exchange goods and services with one another.

    "This is basically Nazi Germany," she said. "All these people spending money they earned doing work to buy things of their own free will? Without the government allocating resources as they see fit?"

    "Fascism."
