Commenting on the so-called ‘democratic socialist’ Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who is the Congressional candidate for New York State’s 14th district, Fox News host Jesse Watters said, “Now let’s look at the facts about socialism, shall we? Venezuela, a rich country, blessed with bountiful natural resources now a hell hole,” on Saturday.
Watters further listed the horrible things that socialism has brought to Venezuela. Extreme poverty, sick people taking dog medicine, a massive toilet paper shortage and it becoming the murder capital of the world.
“Look what experience with Socialism has brought. Nearly 90 percent now live in poverty, starvation, the average person lost 24 pounds last year and they’re not trying to diet. Sick people are taking dog medicine. There’s a massive toilet paper shortage and now it’s now the murder capital of the world behind El Salvador,” said Watters.
“If Democrats want to bring Socialism to America it makes me wonder do they want to destroy America?” asked Watters.
Additionally, Watters slammed Cortez for her free health care proposals that would cost America almost 30 trillion dollars. Raising taxes on everyone wouldn’t even make a dent in that bill argued Watters.
“This Cortez individual said she wants free health care free housing and free college, free health care alone cost 30 trillion dollars. You raise taxes on everyone in America and that wouldn’t even make a dent in paying that bill,” said Watters.
