Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claimed that the American rag to riches ideal is a complete joke.

The most ironic part of this is the fact that she literally is an example of someone who experienced this rag to riches ideal.
She was a bartender and campaigned long hours each day to pull herself up from the bootstraps and landed a six figure job in the government. Her own experiences literally debunk her claim.

There is no question that because of elected officials like AOC this rag to riches story is becoming less and less likely. As we become more of a socialist country we lose the ability for people to climb up the ladder. Socialism will destroy America but before it does it will create stagnant income classes. The poor will become poorer and the rich will become richer.
