Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez still can’t answer how America can afford to pay for an estimated $40 trillion in big government programs, which includes a socialist healthcare system for all. She also now claims that opponents who ask her questions that she can’t answer “haven’t earned the right to ask” her those questions.
In a recent interview with Jorge Ramos, Ocasio-Cortez was asked: “Medicare for All, is it too expensive?”
Ocasio-Cortez responded by saying, “You just pay for it,” as she claimed that Medicare for All was less expensive than the current system.
.@Ocasio2018 hasn’t thought deeply about any of the major issues she talks about. She just responds to questions about their feasibility with things like, “you just pay for it!”
She’s profoundly unprepared for the job she’s about to get.

On Monday, Ocasio-Cortez came up with a new tactic to dodge having to answer questions that she has no rational response for, claiming that her opponents “haven’t earned the right to ask” her how she’ll pay for her big government programs.
Let’s make a deal.
Until Team “Let’s Make a Space Force, Build Child Concentration Camps, & Give $2 Trillion to the Rich” explain how they finance their mass cruelty, they haven’t earned the right to ask how we pay for people’s healthcare.

Ocasio-Cortez’s misleading claims about health care were dismantled by CNN’s Jake Tapper in a fact-check segment in August.
Jake Tapper asks Alexandria Ocasio Cortez how she will pay for the $40T price tag on her socialist agenda. She says it will save money. What? #sotu

During a segment on CNN with Tapper back in September, Ocasio-Cortez was unable to answer how she plans to pay for the $40 trillion in big government programs she supports.
