In an interview with Chris Cuomo of CNN, Ocasio-Cortez gave no solid proposals how to increase total U.S. GDP by 250%, and consumption of the world's resources, to meet her expectations. Although Ocasio-Cortez did question the baseline costs of U.S. healthcare, alleging the figures do not include the funeral costs of the uninsured.[10]

Controversies

Former President Obama endorsed Ocasio-Cortez while former Democratic party Vice Presidential candidate Joe Lieberman said if Ocasio-Cortez and Democratic socialism is the future of the Democratic party, the party doesn't have much of a future.[11]
