The other side: Axios asked Ocasio-Cortez whether her proposal feeds into Trump’s claims about socialism. AOC replied:

“I find this hilarious because this president seeks to expand government into the bodies of women. They seek to expand government to spontaneously generate detention centers all along our southern border. They seek to expand government in separating children from their parents. They seek to expand government in passing massive increases in military spending when we have no wars to fight or that we should be fighting.”

“So this is not about who’s expanding government. It’s about who we’re working for, and we’re choosing to work for the people of the United States.”
