As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by DAILYCALLER.COM:

CNN host Jake Tapper on Sunday pressed New York congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on where she intended to get the money to fund one of her main platform policies, Medicare for all.

Tapper began by laying out the policies — such as Medicare for all, tuition-free public college and the cancellation of student loan debt — and the price tag, saying, “According to nonpartisan and left-leaning Tax Policy Center, the overall price tag is more than $40 trillion in the next decade. You recently said in an interview increasing taxes on the very wealthy, increased corporate tax rate would make $2 trillion over the next 10 years. Where is the other $38 trillion going to come from?”

The article goes on to state the following:

Ocasio-Cortez dismissed the question, arguing that a Medicare for all policy would ultimately save money over time. She expounded on the virtues on “investments that are better for our future,” citing the U.K., Canada, and France as working examples of the model she preferred.

Tapper tried again, saying, “$40 trillion is quite a bit of money. And the taxes that you talked about raising to pay for this, to pay for your agenda, only count for two.”

Ocasio-Cortez, seeming to acknowledge that she had no answer in saying, “We do know and acknowledge that there are political realities. They don’t always happen with the wave of a wand but we can work to make these things happen.”

Tapper verbalized that he wasn’t going to “get an answer for the other $38 trillion.”

  1. She, like all the other socialist politicians refuse to say that the money will actually come from the working men/women and not the corporations. Here is also something that the socialists won’t tell you about. All the large corporations that can do so will take their companies to other countries and set up there as corporations of those countries, becoming a corporation that is no longer taxable in the US. Once as many corporations that can do so leave then the amount of corporate tax that is now figured into all that wonderful make believe numbers will mean that the working men/women who if they even have a job will have their pay taxed at a higher rate. What people also don’t understand because they think that a government job is going to keep them employed at a wage that they get now or more, what they don’t realize is that even THEIR jobs will be in danger, THEIR taxes will also go up to the point that they can’t live and will be in the same boat as the rest of the country.

    What the socialist politicians refuse to tell you is that once all of this begins to take place, people will be forced to choose between feeding their children or putting a solid roof over their heads. There will be more people out on the streets living in tents even with a job because they chose to feed their family and live in a tent rather than pay rent and watch their family go hungry.

    This is the reality that the socialists REFUSE to tell the people about.

  2. This young girl makes no sense at all. She knows nothing about how capitalism works. Which is many people working together to make the flow of money to each family and to corporations that employ there employees. She is living on pipe dreams that can’t possibly work. She wants government to run everything. That is why President Trump was elected! So many people not working and Corporations picking up and moving out of our Country. We would be fools to elect these people that are pushing this!
