It’s an immigrant’s story, with a message every American should hear. As a native of Eastern Europe, Victoria Spartz has seen life under socialism up close and knows the damage it can do. As a newly elected American congresswoman, she’s in a position to stop it from destroying the United States. Spartz was the underdog winner of a race in Indiana’s 5th Congressional District to replace the retiring Rep. Susan Brooks. And in an interview Monday morning on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends,” the Ukraine native explained why she got into politics in her adopted country. “I grew up in a socialistic country,” Spartz told co-host Ainsley Earhardt. “I grew up in socialism. I saw what happens when it runs out of money, and it’s not pretty.”
