Dems' Socialist Ideas Will Tank Economy

Dems' Socialist Ideas Will Tank Economy
By Betsy McCaughey

The Democratic Party's left flank is turning the midterm elections into a referendum on capitalism. Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, New York congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and dozens of other federal and state candidates protest that our economic system is unjust and needs an overhaul.

They demand radical changes like giving workers control of 40 percent of corporate board seats and making boards serve vague goals of social justice instead of maximizing profits. They're also pushing for huge minimum wage hikes.

These changes will tank the economy and hurt the very workers the party claims to represent. The Democrats' extreme proposals are handing Republicans a powerful election counterattack. At a weekend rally in Kansas City, President Donald Trump slammed Democrats as "an angry left-wing mob" pushing for Venezuela-style socialism.

They always say socialism sounds better on paper, but I never got their argument all that well. Seems to me like a whole lot of people whining because they can't get anything in life. Hope I never live to see the day these democratic socialists turn the economy into an endless pit of fire.

Reminds me of high school, where a popular clique of "Cool Kids" set the pace and all the faculty assume 99% of the students agree.
It just isn't reality, and those "Cool Kids", the leftist media, is not in line with reality.
Trump is the only the cool kid, but an actual leader the 99% support.
