Welfare for illegal immigrants? Nationwide rent control? Benefits for convicts? These are just some of the ideas Elizabeth Warren has endorsed as part of Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’s plan known as a “Just Society.” Such proposals destroy the value of property ownership (plan 1 of Marx’s 10 Planks, not coincidentally), and the value of citizenship. Monica Showalter explains the hook up to insanity in The Ameican Thinker (abridged):
Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren endorsed a Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) policy proposal that includes taxpayer-funded welfare benefits for illegal immigrants.
Ocasio-Cortez’s proposal, dubbed “A Just Society,” calls for nationwide rent control and bans the federal government from denying welfare benefits based on an individual’s immigration status and previous criminal convictions. Warren became the first Democratic presidential candidate to endorse the plan, calling it “just the type of bold, comprehensive thinking we’ll need” to make “big, structural change.”
Ocasio-Cortez is considered to be “one of the most important endorsements in America,” and Warren’s immediate support of her latest policy marks another attempt to win the freshman congressman’s nod of approval. Warren’s quick embrace of Ocasio-Cortez’s plan is the latest sign of the social media superstar’s policy impact on the Democratic presidential field.
Ocasio-Cortez’s proposal, consisting of six separate bills, calls for the expansion of welfare. Bills three and four make it illegal for the federal government to deny welfare benefits to ex-convicts and illegal immigrants.
The legislation does not address how to pay for the rising cost of welfare, nor does it explain how it would accomplish its goals.
The last bill in Ocasio-Cortez’s proposal establishes health care, housing, and healthy food as government-provided rights.
A Just Society is Ocasio-Cortez’s latest major policy initiative since introducing the Green New Deal, a $94.4 trillion environmental policy proposal that would have no effect on the environment.
To date, only Warren has endorsed “A Just Society.”
