A 28-year-old Democratic Socialist just ousted a powerful, 10-term congressman in New York

The socialism loving millennial culture is alive and well in the Bagel.

What New York millennials really want is New York’s Free lunch spread across the country. The problem with that is there will be no one left to tax to support it. Ask someone from Buffalo about their high taxes designed is to shore up NYC.

Like Maggie Thatcher said, socialism is great until you run out of other people’s money.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a 28-year-old Latina running her first campaign, ousted 10-term incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley in New York’s 14th congressional district on Tuesday, CNN projects, in the most shocking upset of a rollicking political season.

An activist and member of the Democratic Socialists of America, Ocasio-Cortez won over voters in the minority-majority district with a ruthlessly efficient grassroots bid, even as Crowley — the fourth-ranking Democrat in the House — outraised her by a 10-to-1 margin.

“I want to congratulate Ms. Ocasio-Cortez on her victory tonight,” Crowley said in a statement. “I look forward to supporting her and all Democrats this November. The Trump administration is a threat to everything we stand for here in Queens and the Bronx, and if we don’t win back the House this November, we will lose the nation we love.”

Be seeing you
