AOC Puzzled When Asked How to Afford Socialism

During an interview with Jorge Ramos, Democrat-Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez simply didn’t understand why it is so difficult to fund her proposals for Medicare and free college tuition for all. After she proposed Medicare and free tuition for all, Ramos asked, “Medicare for all. Is it too expensive?” AOC’s response: “No. People often say, like, how are you going to pay for it, and I find the question so puzzling because ‘How do you pay for something that’s more affordable? How do you pay for cheaper rent?’ You just pay for it. We’re paying more now.” Yes, “You just pay for it.” In other words, you just print more money…because that’s always worked out well in the past.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez gave an interview to Jorge Ramos last Thursday in which she was asked how she would pay for her agenda. Ocasio-Cortez didn’t even try to explain how she would pay for Medicare for all or free college tuition, she just said people would pay.

“In a modern, moral and wealthy society, no person should be too poor to live,” Ocasio-Cortez said when asked to define her Democratic Socialism. “We should treat healthcare, housing, and education as rights,” she said, adding, “I believe we should guarantee a basic level of human dignity in America.”

Jorge Ramos then asked specifically about several of her proposals. “Medicare for all, is it too expensive?” Ramos asked.

“No, people often say, like, how are you going to pay for it and I find the question so puzzling because ‘How do you pay for something that’s more affordable? How do you pay for cheaper rent?’ You just pay for it. We’re paying more now.”
