Puzzled Ocasio-Cortez On Paying For Free College & Medicare For Everyone: “You Just Pay For It”

Why anyone would vote for these airhead dimoKKKRATS is beyond me. [-X Unfortunately this looks like the direction the country is heading. [-X

"Incoming New York congresswoman and self-proclaimed Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said she was puzzled by a question about how to pay for things like free college tuition and free Medicare for all and mocked those people who see the obvious economic problems with such nonsense. However, in Ocasio-Cortez’s mind, she thinks, well “you just pay for it.”
OK, let’s just get this out on the table now. If one “just pays for it,” it’s not really free, is it? Someone is paying for “it,” whether it’s welfare or some government entitlement that makes you dependent upon government for your money or healthcare.
During an interview with Jorge Ramos on Monday, Ocasio-Cortez said, “People often say, like, how are you going to pay for it? And I find the question so puzzling because how do you pay for something that’s more affordable? How do you pay for cheaper rent? How do you pay for — you just pay for it.”

Kind of like the three trillion dollar war in Iraq, how did we pay for that? If you reversed the Bush tax cut and the Trump tax cut, and the money spent in the Iraq war, we would have a 150 billion dollar surplus right now.

She is a product of the education system where math is frowned upon, and the new discovery math is all the rage.

Kids are graduating high school without any basic math skills or any knowledge on how to balance a bank account.

Bernie Saunders was here in Canada a couple years ago and visited a hospital...of course it was a staged set up where he just happened to be there when some dark skinned visible minority's where in the waiting room ...about to go in for some treatment.

He played it really good,, like he was dumbfounded and shocked

He looked at the reporter and said " so these people are here getting FREE healthcare??"

The reporter said ,, yes of course, it's free in Canada

Meanwhile , anyone here who is a just a middle class working stiff, is ready to kill anyone who says it's free...when they see a 40% or 50% tax hit on your paycheck..then taxed on everything else you purchase with the leftover

It's mind boggling the far left socialists still call services and anything the government provided as "free"???

I always laughed at that, because it's such an idiotic statement...but over the last few years more and more people actually believe it!! And it's the young people who fall for it,,truly amazing

the "I work hard, so you don't have too" is so true
