Ocasio-Cortez’s economic vision is more like delusion

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Bronx native and bright new face of the Democratic Party, has made quite a splash on the political scene.

For one thing, she’s the youngest woman — at 29 — ever to hold a congressional seat. And in order to do it, she had to knock off 20-year Queens Democratic incumbent Joe Crowley.

I, for one, think her accomplishments are utterly remarkable for anyone, let alone a 29-year-old with zero political experience.

But while I’d never discourage the youth of America from taking on all comers and reaching for the stars, that’s about the extent of my fanhood for AOC and her utopian (or delusional, if you prefer) economic plan.

Economics knows no political stripe, but it does know a bunch of baloney from the Bronx (or Queens).

AOC has figured out an apparent solution for the No. 1 economy in the world since the late 1800s.

She proposes to raise taxes to — in the highest cases — 70 percent in order to create a “Green New Deal” that would save the environment.

I have a few questions.

The first one is: Just what economic problem are you trying to solve?

Why do you want to revamp, redistribute and re-create the world’s greatest economy?

There’s a reason people want to come running over our border.

This is the only country in the world where you can start with nothing and end up with something of substance.

And where else on this planet have so many life-altering things been invented?

I have no problem with radical ideas — who would have thought we could fly?

But look around: The country is growing and thriving due to lower taxes. Why should we return to the Obama years of high taxes?

Sorry, AOC, I love your enthusiasm, but I’ll take a pass on the Green Kool-Aid.
