    It's not free stuff, it's Public Goods.

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's promise to boost federal funding for social programs should not be considered "free stuff," because they are in fact "public goods," the New York Democrat said in a Monday tweet.

    "Public education, libraries, & infrastructure policies (which we‘ve had before in America and elsewhere in the world!) are not 'free stuff,'" she tweeted.
    "They are PUBLIC GOODS. And they are worth investing in, protecting, & advancing for all society and future generations. Sincerely, NY-14."

    "People like to say, 'Oh, this is about free stuff.' This is not about free stuff," she said during the town hall. "I never want to hear the word, or the term, 'free stuff,' ever again."


    "What I love about her, .... free stuff... is that essentially she wants everybody on the planet to be able to come here. So that's free borders, and free health care and free college," Steyn said on "Fox & Friends."
    "She wants seven billion people essentially, to be able to enjoy what in the 19th century would be the life of the younger son of a middle European grand duke — at the cost to the U.S. taxpayer. And she says, 'Oh, but don’t call that free stuff.' God bless her."

    AOC has way to much free time on her hands.

    She needs to take a garbage disposal apart and figure out how it works and its purpose in life.

    Her sycophants, and most D-rats in general, don't care what it is called anyway. They always figured they were owed it regardless. Amazing how so many supposedly grown adults are willing to be lemmings following a child bartender.

    Another dangerous idiot in the Congress who can't tell the difference between "General Welfare" like roads, schools, libraries, ect....and giving useless people handouts. You do not improve general welfare by creating a huge class of government dependents for life.
    "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

    - Ronald Reagan

    I saw a little bit of her clip on Harris Faulkner's show. The line that got the really big applause is when AOC said, "because you deserve it".

    Tells you everything you need to know.

    I suspect she is going to be hearing more about "free stuff" than before she told us it bothers her.

    Alexandria "freestuff" Ocasio-Cortez

    From now on.

    No, you enable slothful behavior and make things worse.

    What bothers me is they don't even make any qualms about carefully spending that money or deciding where it should really go. They seem to just be looking for any excuse to throw out free money for any reason.

    You can see this in their attitudes about lawsuits. Someone was "offended", throw them $1 million dollars!
