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.
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.
Ocasio-Cortez’s misleading claims about health care were dismantled by CNN’s Jake Tapper in a fact-check segment in August.
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.
