Americans Applauding After Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Put The GOP IN Their Place With Message They Can’t Ignore

Right now, we as Americans are in a dark place with Trump leading the way into our future. So it’s no wonder that many of us are looking to an alternative that makes sense. Americans want to know that in the days to come, they’ll have the ability to feed their families, put a roof over their heads, and get the healthcare they deserve as citizens of the strongest nation on earth.

New York congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez came forth on Wednesday to suggest that her policy proposal of “Medicare for All” is “not a pipe dream.”

“I think at the end of the day, we see that this is not a pipe dream,” Ocasio-Cortez explained during her appearance on CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time.”

“Every other developed nation in the world does this,” she added. “Why can’t America?”

“In a Koch brothers-funded study – if any study’s going to try and be a little slanted, it would be one funded by the Koch brothers – it shows that ‘Medicare for All’ is actually much cheaper than the current system that we pay right now,” Ocasio-Cortez said

Ocasio-Cortez is usually pressed about how she would financially support her policy proposals, which includes tuition-free public colleges, alongside universal jobs guarantee and housing as a human right.

“We write unlimited blank checks for war,” she argued on Wednesday. “We just wrote a $2 trillion check for that tax cut, the GOP tax cut, and nobody asked those folks, ‘How are they gonna pay for it?'”

“So my question is, why is it our pockets are only empty when it comes to education and healthcare for our kids?” she added. “Why are pockets only empty when we talk about 100 percent renewable energy that is going to save this planet and allow our children to thrive?”

“We only have empty pockets when it comes to the morally right things to do, but when it comes to tax cuts for billionaires and when it comes to unlimited war, we seem to be able to invent that money very easily,” she said. “To me, it belies a lack of moral priorities that people have right now.”
