Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was so bad on Jake Tapper’s SOTU show that he literally gave up talking to her about one simple question! The Democratic Socialist was asked about her “Medicare for all” plan, which is predicted by both left and right swaying associations to cost America about $40 trillion. Of course, this amount also includes the following: “jobs guarantees, student loan forgiveness, free college programs, paid family leave, and Social Security expansion” all at an extremely high cost of $40 trillion.
Like anyone else out there, even CNN’s host Jake Tapper wanted to know the answer to “where is all that money coming from?”
Jake asked Ocasio-Cortez about it a few times and each time she completely talked about something that really made no sense. By the time Ocasio-Cortez was done ignoring his question for the second time, he actually gave up on her. It’s really bad when a CNN host gives up on her and makes her look like a fool on video.
Here’s the video of Jake Tapper basically shaming the Democratic Socialist. He didn’t say anything mean, but he didn’t really have to. Her inability to answer a simple question on a socialist idea is enough to make us laugh. (If video doesn’t load, then visit this link to watch)
After seeing this video, some of you might wonder “who the heck would vote for her?” And that’s a great question. I’d have to wonder about that myself.
How can she run for a government position and come up with these ideas and not have any clue where this ridiculous amount of money will come from?
When CNN does an article and video on a Democratic Socialist and she looks this foolish, then how can anyone have confidence in her work as a politician?
I heard Bernie’s Bread Line is hiring, maybe she can put in an application.
CNN stated more on the Tapper and Ocasio-Cortez interview, after he asked about where the money would come from:
“Medicare for all would save the American people a very large amount of money,” she said. “What we see as well is that these systems are not just pie in the sky. Many of them are accomplished by every modern, civilized democracy in the Western world,” she said. “The United Kingdom has a form of single-payer health care — Canada, France, Germany. What we need to realize that these investments are better and they are good for our future.”
I don’t think she has any idea what she’s talking about. I really don’t.
After Jake asked her…
But asked again where that $40 trillion would come from, aside from her proposed increase in taxes on the wealthy and corporate taxes, which she has said would raise $2 trillion over the next 10 years, Ocasio-Cortez said the taxpayer-funded programs would free people up to increase economic activity in other areas, adding that the Medicare for all program is part of “a broader agenda.”
“We do know and acknowledge that there are political realities,” she added. “They don’t always happen with the wave of a wand, but we can work to make these things happen.”
There is still $38 trillion left to come up with. Where is coming from? She has NO answer. She has NO idea.
She added that “when you look at the economic activity that it spurs, for example, if you look at my generation, millennials, the amount of economic activity that we do not engage, the fact that we delay purchasing homes, that we don’t participate in the economy and purchasing cars, et cetera, as fully as possible, is a cost.
Wow. This makes even less sense! Is she claiming that her generation isn’t spending money, but somehow expects to raise an extra $38 trillion? This literally makes no sense whatsoever.
It’s great watching someone from the leftist media give up on another leftist. When they do, that’s when you know it’s bad.
I’ll be over hear eating some Tide Pods (just kidding, that’s what millennials do) and trying to spark the economy. We have to come up with $38 trillion somehow.
Gotta get that socialism going!
Someone call Bernie Sanders and ask him if he can pick me up in his sports car!
Until next time, have a good day and just look at Venezuela every time you hear the word socialism.
It doesn’t work.
It won’t ever work!
