Ocasio-Cortez Avoids Answering Jake Tapper’s Question On Health Care Funding…Twice! (VIDEO)

Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has become a polished propagandist who has developed a talent to deceive. A good candidate for the ignorant low information voter

On Sunday, CNN host Jake Tapper pressed socialist darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on her controversial policies which are estimated to cost the government $40 trillion. These programs include federal housing, tuition-free college, canceling student loan debt and Medicare for all.

Tapper asked her where she intended to get the money to fund one of her main platform policies, Medicare for all.

“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?”

But, she couldn’t answer! Ocasio-Cortez simply 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.

To Tapper’s credit, he kept challenging her on where the money would come from. He continued: “Right. I get that. But the price tag for everything that you laid out in your campaign is $40 trillion over the next 10 years. I understand that Medicare for all would cost more to some wealthier people and to the government and to taxpayers, while also reducing individual health care expenditures. $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 continued to avoid answering directly, choosing to explain how the only way to cut costs was to remove the cash flow from the private sector to the government. She then appeared to concede the fact that she wasn’t answering the question, 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 then acknowledged that he “won’t get an answer for the other $38 trillion” from Ocasio-Cortez.”

Ocasio-Cortez literally refused to answer the question. Her answers were nothing more than smoke and mirrors. She’s not going to answer tough questions, because, she has no answers.

It is obvious she is parroting the globalist narrative that her backers put in her head.

It is obvious too that she got no clue of what she is talking about. All pie in the sky, no common sense.
