Nothing strikes fear in the hearts of the GOP than a young, up-and-coming Democrat with radical ideas for change. After warning people at CPAC that they will lose their pickup trucks and their hamburgers should Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal pass in Congress, it became obvious that Republicans will stop at no ridiculous lie that their supporters will believe to fearmonger around a young lawmaker getting too much attention.

In an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, Ocasio-Cortez answered questions about her healthcare, housing, and education policies. Most important, of course, are the questions about how these policies will be paid for. She reminded Cooper that Americans already pay more for healthcare and education than any other developed country. She addressed conservatives and even moderate Democrats who call her plans “unrealistic.”
‘We pay more per capita for healthcare and education for lower outcomes than many other nations. So for me, what’s unrealistic is what we’re living in now.’
She also pointed out that no one had questioned Trump about how the country would afford two trillion dollars in tax cuts or Trupp’s ridiculous “Space Force” idea. Whenever sacrifices need to be made, they are always made on the backs of poor people. In an unsustainable economy, how can we afford not to pay for these things?
Ocasio-Cortez’s ideas have more support than she’s given credit for. 70 percent of Americans support Medicare for all and free college tuition. If Ocasio-Cortez is radical, so are the vast majority of American voters today.
Twitter was supportive of Ocasio-Cortez’s plans, as well. Read some of their comments below:
