Democrats, including Ocasio-Cortez, have zero clues for how to pay for it.
Not only did scores of businesses flee France to avoid its exorbitant taxes - or they swiftly sought tax havens overseas, causing significant capital flight - but also many wealthy French citizens earning over 1 million euros, who were subjected to Hollande's 75 percent supertax, packed their bags, causing a mass exodus to the U.K., Belgium and other countries whose taxes were less crushing.
"There's a lot of things we can't do as freshman members", Ocasio-Cortez, the newly elected Democrat from NY recently told Stephen Colbert when asked about the shutdown.
Ocasio-Cortez has also boosted a group that recruits primary challengers to Democratic incumbents whom she believes are too moderate.
"You could start raising tax rates on successful earners [but] you'll get a slower economy and you'll get lower revenue", Kudlow said on "Lou Dobbs Tonight".
Ocasio-Cortez has proved to be a hit on social media, with millions following her on Twitter as she has tried to raise taxes to fund her "Green New Deal" and made other outlandish statements. We'd prefer if you just kept it out of the races altogether because we don't want your millionaire billionaire money corrupting the Democratic Party anymore.

However, it's not the president's proposed U.S. -Mexico border wall she's supporting.
"If they come to a reasonable agreement, I would support that", Trump told reporters, referring to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
And Trump suggested Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross had erred earlier in the day, when he said furloughed federal government workers should have no problems getting loans to cover their expenses amid the ongoing partial federal government shutdown.
She went on to qualify her statement, by adding, " I don't think that necessarily means that all billionaires are immoral", citing the philanthropy of Bill Gates and Warren Buffett. She wasted no time in laying blame on the president for the government shutdown for which he said he would "take the mantle". Imagine what it's like when they actually hate you...'
