I don’t know. Maybe it’s just me. I’m not sure how someone can listen to or read comments from socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and not lose braincells.
Ocasio-Cortez was apparently speaking to a group of supporters last weekend and she said some things that would not only make you scratch your head, but you’d also most likely scream out of sheer frustration.
“I’m tired of this idea that Medicare for All and tuition-free public colleges are some handout from somebody else,” Ocasio-Cortez told the audience.
Huh? What? Come again?
Either Ocasio-Cortez doesn’t know how these programs work in terms of getting funded, or she’s flat out lying. It’s one or the other, or both.
There’s a little thing called taxes. They’re those pesky things that socialists always say they want to raise in order to pay for their lifestyles. That’s how things like Medicare For All and free tuition are and would be paid for.
I’ll give Ocasio-Cortez credit, though. No matter how inept some of the things she says might seem, she says them with the conviction of someone with absolute certainty.
“Nobody else is giving us a damn thing,” Ocasio-Cortez said to rolling applause. “We build this on our own. We fund it. We establish it. We fight for it. We create it. And no one should be able to take it away from us as they have been. So that’s that on that.”
In order for people to have things taken away from them, that means you had them in the first place. By her own logic, both she and all of her supporters had Medicare For All and free college taken away by — I don’t know — the Boogeyman?
You can watch the circus below:
Ocasio-Cortez’s popularity can only be explained by two things. First, the ignorance of the people who follow her. And second, Ocasio-Cortez is like a car accident. You don’t want to see one, but you can’t help but look at the wreck.
