Socialist Rep. Ocasio-Cortez Accidentally Endorses Social Security Privatization, Minimum Wage Repeal, Corporate Tax Cuts

Socialism: Newly minted Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says she isn't modeling her brand of socialism on socialist basket cases like Venezuela, but on successes like Sweden, Norway and Finland. Apparently, she hasn't bothered to look at just what sorts of economic policies those "socialist" countries have been pursuing lately.

During an interview on "60 Minutes," Anderson Cooper put this question to Ocasio-Cortez: "When people hear the word socialism, they think Soviet Union, Cuba, Venezuela. Is that what you have in mind?" Her response: "Of course not. What we have in mind and what of my and my policies most closely resemble what we see in the U.K., in Norway, in Finland, in Sweden." If that were true, then Ocasio-Cortez would have to abandon almost her entire economic agenda and embrace free-market economic policies. Because that's what those countries have been doing. Here's a rundown:

Privatize Social Security

Ocasio-Cortez says she wants to expand Social Security benefits. There's no question that she's unalterably opposed to privatizing the federal pension program. But two of the countries she cites as role models have partially privatized their social security programs to save taxpayer money and provide better retirements for their citizens. Sweden partially privatized its social security program in the mid-1990s. Britain began partially privatizing its public pension program in the late 1950s. In both countries, workers can invest a portion of their payroll taxes in individual, private accounts.

You're assuming she was given any in the first place.
