    In an interview with Jorge Ramos last week, Ocasio-Cortez was asked how she would pay for the multibillion-dollar health care plan promoted by liberal lawmakers like Sens. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Kamala Harris, D-Calif. Ramos noted critics say the program would be "more expensive" than the current system, to which she answered that people would "just pay for it."

    “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? How do you pay for cheaper rent?’ You just pay for it,” she said. “We’re paying more now.”



    :lmao2: We're paying more now.. :lmao2:

      Like OBAMA CARE was going to save money.

      The only way single payer works is if it only pays the VERY basics or better it only pays for catastrophic (keeping people from going bankrupt)

      You can't pay for it all.

          And yet, I cannot recall ANY of the liberal/left-leaning posters here who have condemned her or her ridiculous notion.

          If Ocasio-Cortez overdrew her checking account she would whip out her check book and write the bank a check to cover the deficit.

              Just tell her it is 'for the people (comrade)'. I'm sure she'll smile and go along.

              The posters here a dumber than boxes of rocks. Compare the US health system to any single payer system in the world. The US pays nearly twice as much per capita for worse outcomes than any of those countries. And no one asks how we’ll pay for a trillion dollar defense budget.

              If any of you guys tried to read a book, you might climb your way out of ignorance.

                If you were sick with potentially fatal disease would you rather be in the USA or some other country?

                  So, would you like to weigh in on the topic, which is that the Congresswoman to be clearly has no idea what she is talking about on just about any issue? Or are you going to mindless defend this obviously unqualified person like the NPC I suspect you are?

                    Talk about a box of rocks. Defense budget was 640 Billion. Never been much above 700B. Meanwhile entitlement spending keeps going up and up. Before you throw the ignorant label out there you ought to take a look in the mirror.

                      While he's trying to figure out what the correct response is, here's some light reading. It's a study from the Urban Institute that puts a price tag on Sander's single payer at 2.8 trillion annually.
                      Full Report

                      The entire tax revenue is roughly 3.3 trillion. I imagine in all the books you read a math book was among them.

                        So much stupid in a single.post.

                        We don't have a trillion dollars defense budget. Talk about ignorance.
