In an Instagram post over the weekend, socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) defended the Biden administration’s plan to transfer student loan debt to the backs of the middle class, suggesting that those who oppose it are selfish and contending that it is time for people to “reject the scarcity mindset that says doing something good for someone else comes at the cost of something for ourselves.”
“I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Not every program has to be for everybody. People with apartments pay for first time homeowner benefits. Young people pay for Medicare for our seniors. People who take public transit pay for car infrastructure,” the brain-dead AOC blathered, urging Americans to “reject the scarcity mindset that says doing something good for someone else comes at the cost of something for ourselves.”
Um, burdening the lower and middle classes with taxes to pay off student loans borrowed by others is a cost born by others, especially since this redistribution is at the command of the federal government.
AOC went on to threaten that the Biden administration’s move is just a “first step,” as she is “also thinking about how this still leaves a question mark for those in the highest amounts of debt, who need the most amount of help.”
“In light of the ecological, economic, and social challenges we face, our society’s ability to triumph and prevail actually depends on our capacity for SELFLESSNESS over SELFISHNESS,” she scolded in another post.
Resenting the forced redistribution of wealth is not selfishness. And AOC and her Democrat cronies are willfully ignoring the burden this redistribution is putting on people who are already struggling with the Biden administration’s economy-busting policies.
