Ocasio-Cortez’s $93 trillion “Green New Deal” would require doubling or tripling federal taxes, and put government in control of over half the economy. That the congresswoman would be willing to shed a few billion in military spending — a minor point of agreement with libertarians — doesn’t change the fact that she wants to radically reshape the American economic system in a top-down fashion.
Ocasio-Cortez also supports gun control, a government takeover of healthcare, government jobs for all, and almost every big government fantasy you can imagine.
She is no friend of libertarians.
In fact, the far-left congresswoman literally led a public shaming campaign against libertarian activists, as reported by The College Fix. After this year’s annual LibertyCon, hosted by Students for Liberty, Ocasio-Cortez blasted Big Tech companies who had sponsored the conference (which I attended), because it included debate over climate issues and policy. She wrote “the example [your companies] have set promoting sustainability and evidence-based science is compromised by your implicit support of the session organized at LibertyCon.”
