Many Americans also have concerns about the Democrats’ apparent support for socialism. This is especially problematic to conservatives who view capitalism as an economic system which has lifted millions out of poverty. Nevertheless, many of the programs which Democrats advocate for remain entrenched in socialism; examples include Medicare-for-All, tax hikes, and the Green New Deal.
On multiple occasions, Democrats have called for “free” stuff, such as free healthcare, free college and even doing away with student loan debt. The problem is that nothing is free; someone always foots the bill and usually, that burden falls on American taxpayers.
