Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Has Big Ideas On How To Save The U.S, Economy
Whether you agree with the politics of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez or not, Politico columnist Harold Ford Jr. says that her ideas about changing the U.S. economy should be heard.
Ford Jr. says that he's happy that she’s giving voice to millions of Americans who want to fix "a system they don’t see working for them."
Ford Jr. describes this as the idea that incredibly wealthy and well-connected elites control "too much of the wealth generated in this economy."
Ocasio-Cortez's ideas to change the state of the economy include: raising the marginal tax rate on the ultrawealthy, having "Medicare for all," investing more resources into public education, and reforming campaign finance laws.
Ford Jr. believes that her ideas are perfectly timed.
He says that the first-term Democratic congresswoman from New York is one of many suggesting new ideas up for debate, close to the 2020 presidential election.
