Marco Rubio Blasts ‘Destructive’ Democratic Socialism
“But why has it become so popular among some? Because it allows the radical left to ignore the incredibly destructive history of socialism.”
“Democratic socialism hasn’t worked anywhere in the world and in fact, there are people living in America today who came here because democratic socialism destroyed the economies of their countries,” Rubio said.
“There’s no doubt that our public policies must change to better reflect our values of dignified work, strong families, and thriving communities. But democratic socialism — that will never be the answer.”
Democratic New York Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Democratic Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, both high-profile freshman representatives, are members of the Democratic Socialists of America.
Democratic voters grow increasingly comfortable with socialism, but the only open socialist and Democratic 2020 presidential candidate is Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.
