Ocasio-Cortez Asked How She’ll Pay for $40 Trillion Programs, Response Is Priceless

This is the future of the Democrat Party…

A Gallup poll recently confirmed that most Democrats prefer socialism to capitalism.

Not only is that bad news for America, but it speaks volumes about sheer ignorance.

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) is a self-described Democrat Socialist.

In other words, she’s a flat-out socialist. Let’s cut the BS and call a spade a spade.

During her “60 Minutes” interview with Anderson Cooper, AOC was asked how she intends to pay for the $40 trillion in proposed big government programs of which she speaks about so highly.

She had no answer.

This marks the second time that Ocasio-Cortez was unable to explain how she would pay for the programs that she wants the government to pay for, with the other instance occurring during an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper.

Cooper: “How are you going to pay for all of this?

AOC: “No one asks how we’re gonna pay for this Space Force. No one asked how we paid for a $2 trillion tax cut We only ask how we pay for it on issues of housing, healthcare and education. How do we pay for it? With the same exact mechanisms that we pay for military increases for this Space Force. For all of these– ambitious policies.

Cooper: “There are Democrats, obviously, who are worried about your affect on the party. Democratic Senator Chris Coons, said about left-leaning Democrats, “If the next two years is just a race to offer increasingly unrealistic proposals, it’ll be difficult for us to make a credible case we should be allowed to govern again.

AOC: “What makes it unrealistic?

Cooper “How to pay for it.

AOC: “We pay more per capita in health care and education for lower outcomes than many other nations. And so for me, what’s unrealistic is– is what we’re living in right now.

Ocasio-Cortez thinks she gets picked on by conservatives because she’s young and female.

In other words, she feels that Republicans are misogynists.

Not the most original, is she?

Alexandria, could it be that you’re constantly called out because you say incredibly silly things?

For example, at a press conference for the far-left Sunshine Movement, Ocasio-Cortez compared her midterm election victory to the Civil Rights Movement.

It would be funny if it was meant to be parody.

WATCH:

She also thought her win was comparable to the moon landing.

From Daily Wire:

Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez rambled on Friday that her election victory was on par with the United States landing on the moon, something that she falsely thinks was a political victory for the Democrats over the Republicans.

AOC: “This is not just about a clean new deal. This is about a new deal for the United States of America.

Because in every moment when our country has reached the depths of darkness, in every moment when we were at the brink, at the cusp of an abyss and we did not know if we would be capable of saving ourselves, we have. We’ve done it. We’ve dug deep and we’ve done what we thought was impossible.

Former Governor Mike Huckabee had some thoughts:

Here’s another wild clip featuring the gaffe-prone Democrat Socialist:

AOC also needs everyone to know that “people are going to die” if something isn’t done about climate change.

Maybe Alexandria didn’t get the message that large outfits often falsify their data to make it seem as if things are worse than they are?

Ugh. It’s going to be a long two years covering this one.

Alexandria is apparently looking for attention, sending what was clearly a bold-faced lie on Twitter.

See it:

What’s the problem?

Republican consultant Arthur Schwartz has the answer:

Facepalm.

Ocasio-Cortez said that she couldn’t afford to land an apartment in DC until her Congressional paycheck kicked in.

I have three months without a salary before I’m a member of Congress. So, how do I get an apartment? Those little things are very real.

She lied then, too.

From Daily Wire:

As Fox News reports, “Records show she has more than enough to plunk down on an apartment in the U.S. capital.” Fox News adds that Ocasio-Cortez “reported having between $15,001 and $50,000 in her checking account as of the end of April 2018, according to a Financial Disclosure Report she submitted to the clerk of the U.S. House of Representatives. The financial disclosure also reveals that she has an investment account valued between $1,001 and $15,000.”

[…]

That minimum of $15,000 that Ocasio-Cortez had in the bank is 15 times the amount 57% of average Americans had in their savings, as USA Today reported in May 2018. USA Today stated, “The average American has less than $4,000 in savings, while 57% of U.S. adults have less than $1,000 to their names.”

Like all elected members of Congress, Ocasio-Cortez will earn $174,000 annually.

…In other Ocasio-Cortez-related news…

She knows exactly how to combat “climate change.”

It involves World War II.

Specifically, it involves the blueprint used by the allied forces to defeat the Nazis.

WATCH:

Maybe AOC should check out this report (hyperlinked), in which a NASA scientist warns of strange solar activity and record cold.

Al Gore has been pushing his “climate change” agenda for the better part of two decades now.

In that time, he has benefitted financially to the tune of millions.

With just one new report, President Trump has something to say to the failed presidential candidate and former VP that should shut him up for a while.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, greenhouse gas emissions dropped nearly 3% in Trump’s first year in office.

From Daily Wire:

When President Trump pulled the U.S. out of the Paris Climate Accords, liberals went ape nuts. America, they said, had just signed the death decree of the world. Al Gore moved to the South Pole and built an igloo.

But a funny thing happened on the way to the end of the world. Instead of America causing irreversible global warming, harmful greenhouses gases that some scientists say causes climate change actually decreased during Trump’s first year in office, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reported.

EPA acting administrator Andrew Wheeler noted: “Thanks to President Trump’s regulatory reform agenda, the economy is booming, energy production is surging, and we are reducing greenhouse gas emissions from major industrial sources. These achievements flow largely from technological breakthroughs in the private sector, not the heavy hand of government. The Trump Administration has proven that federal regulations are not necessary to drive CO2 reductions. While many around the world are talking about reducing greenhouse gases, the U.S. continues to deliver, and today’s report is further evidence of our action-oriented approach.”

VIDEO: Biden Comes Unglued When Fox News Reporter Asks Him About Ukrainian Scandal

Not a good look for you, bro!!

You have to hand it to Joe Biden. When confronted about his alleged Ukrainian scandal, the former VP dodged, deflected, and blamed President Trump like he had that card up his sleeve the entire time. Check this out… From Fox News: Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden exploded on Saturday when Fox News reporter Peter Doocy confronted him over his Ukraine scandal, claiming that he did nothing wrong and that the media should be looking into President Donald Trump. Doocy’s question for Biden centered around Biden’s admission that he used his position as Vice President to shut down a Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating a company that was employing Biden’s son. Doocy pondered, “Mr. Vice President, how many times have you ever spoken to your son about his overseas business dealings?” Biden screeched, “I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings. And here’s what I know, I know Trump deserves to be investigated. He is violating every basic norm of a president. You should be asking him the question, why is he on the phone with a foreign leader trying to intimidate a foreign leader, if that’s what happened, that appears to be what happened, you should be looking at Trump.” But there’s a problem… https://twitter.com/dmartosko/status/1175480222164160512?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1175480222164160512&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F52072%2Fwatch-biden-explodes-when-confronted-his-ukraine-ryan-saavedra WATCH: https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1175471237138485249?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1175471237138485249&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F52072%2Fwatch-biden-explodes-when-confronted-his-ukraine-ryan-saavedra Trump weighed in… https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1175392716110401543?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1175392716110401543&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F52072%2Fwatch-biden-explodes-when-confronted-his-ukraine-ryan-saavedra All we hear about from the left is Russia, Russia, Russia. And yet, years later, there is still zero proof the Trump campaign colluded with the Kremlin to defeat Hillary Clinton in 2016. However, the evidence against the Hillary Clinton campaign continues to mount. Now, this… From The Hill: Ukraine’s top prosecutor divulged in an interview aired Wednesday on Hill.TV that he has opened an investigation into whether his country’s law enforcement apparatus intentionally leaked financial records during the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign about then-Trump…

WATCH: Biden Wants to Put Male Prisoners Who Identify As Women In Prison With Female Convicts

Hmm. What could be the problem there!?

With each passing day, Democrats become sillier and sillier. Saturday appeared to belong to Joe Biden, who may or may not still be the liberal party frontrunner. Check out Joe’s thoughts on mentally ill male convicts who think they are women… Joe Biden – Male convicts that identify as female will be housed with women. “In prison the determination should be that your sexual identity is defined by what you say it is not what in fact the prison says it is.” https://twitter.com/DaveNYviii/status/1175229023603089409?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1175229023603089409&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fwoke-joe-biden-says-put-male-prisoners-who-identify-as-women-into-female-prison-pop-because-thats-totally-sane-video%2F Check out this story Biden swears by, even though it is completely made up… From Daily Wire: Last Friday, former Vice President Joe Biden told a rapt audience in New Hampshire a poignant story revolving around a Navy captain who rappelled down a 60-foot ravine to rescue a fallen comrade, but rebuffed Biden’s attempt to pin a Silver Star on his chest because his daring actions to save the soldier came too late. There was one problem: Biden made the story up. The Washington Post reports that Biden told the story of a four-star general who asked Biden, when he was vice-president, to take a dangerous trip to Kunar province in Afghanistan so he could put the Silver Star on the chest of a Navy captain who had rappelled down a 60-foot ravine under fire and brought back the body of an American soldier. […] Addressing the silent crowd, Biden concluded, “This is the God’s truth. My word as a Biden.” Liar, liar, pants on fire. It’s time for Joe to concede. That’s saying something, considering this guy was the Democrat frontrunner. It’s looking more and more grim for the former VP who has yet to be endorsed by Barack Obama.
