It's very known that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has gained much of her popularity by offering everyone who votes for her "free stuff."
Yet for some reason, she does not want to allow anyone to use the term "free stuff."
Free Stuff doesn't poll well I guess.

The former bartender has promised free health care for everyone. Also, she believes everyone should get to go to college for free. Then there's the whole open borders police she believes in for the United States.
So what do we call them if they're not free?
“So first off, this is not free stuff. Second of all, these are public goods. They’re public goods. So I never want to hear the word or the term ‘free stuff’ ever again,” AOC said at a town hall.
“I’m already hearing some of these neoliberal folks who are trying to, like, flip the script on us and say, oh, when we talk public — tuition for public college or we talk about public housing, they say, ‘Oh, I don’t want to pay for a millionaire’s kid to go to college.’ That’s their, like, jujitsu on this [inaudible]. Let me tell you something. Is that I believe that all people should go to a public library, everyone can drive on our roads, everyone should be able to send their kids to a public school, and every person who needs it should have access to public housing that looks like this,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
From yesterday, @aoc had a Green New Deal for public housing townhall in the Bronx. “I don’t want to hear the term free stuff ever again...I am already hearing from some of these neoliberal folks who are trying to flip the script on us.” pic.twitter.com/ugxsCTa6r3

AOC has backed Bernie Sanders for President. Not a strong move if you are looking to distance yourself from "free stuff." This is the guy who wants to have taxpayers foot the bill for $75 billion in taxes to provide free college. Also, he wants to put a 90% tax on those at the top and redistribute wealth. Like a modern day Robin Hood.
So how much would AOC's "free" healthcare plan cot taxpayers? According to a new study, it would cost $32.6 trillion over ten years.

The girl who promises everyone "free stuff" wants everyone to stop calling it "free stuff." Something tells me this isn't going to happen for her.
