Democratic New York congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez thinks everyone can have everything for free. Nevermind that she has no idea how these things will be paid for. She's not worry about that part. That will work itself out on its own, in her mind.
Ocasio-Cortez was forced to explain exactly how she is going to pay for the very expensive "Medicare for All" plan.
It's obvious she has no game plan for how to pay for this. She really hasn't thought anything through. She is about to get a job that she has no business getting. That's liberal New York for you.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on how to pay for "Medicare for all"
[email protected] hasn’t thought deeply about any of the major issues she talks about. She just responds to questions about their feasibility with things like, “you just pay for it!”
She’s profoundly unprepared for the job she’s about to get.

In the primaries she upset incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley. Since then she has repeatedly been unable to answer how her socialistic polities are going to be paid for.
While being interviewed by Jorge Ramos last Thursday she said she is "puzzled" by people who ask her about how socialized medicine will be afforded by this country.
“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?” the socialist Ocasio-Cortez said.
Somehow she believes that "Medicare for All" would somehow be cheaper than the current healthy system. While drug prices would fall, a study by Mercatus Center points out that higher demand would still drive up costs.
