Ocasio-Cortez: I’m Going to Turn America into Another Sweden, Not Venezuela

‘My policies most closely resemble what we see in the U.K., in Norway, in Finland, in Sweden’

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez is bristling at the suggestion her proposed socialist overhaul of America would turn the country into another Venezuela.

During an interview on “60 Minutes,” the New York congressman laughed at the idea her platform of free college, a universal basic income, free health care, and a “Green New Deal” would turn the country into a failed socialist state like Cuba or Venezuela.

"Of course” that’s not what’s being planned, she said. “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."
