https://www.foxnews.com/politics/oc...ng-pentagon-cash-would-cover-medicare-for-allAlexandria Ocasio-Cortez was roundly fact-checked this week -- by even liberal-leaning publications -- for suggesting a reported $21 trillion in Pentagon accounting errors could fund most of her proposed "Medicare for all" health care program.Ocasio-Cortez, one of the highest-profile figures among the new wave of liberal Democrats entering Congress in 2019, cited a Nation story about how $21 trillion in "Pentagon financial transactions" between 1998 and 2015 could not be documented or explained.
“$21T in Pentagon accounting errors. Medicare for All costs ~$32T,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “That means 66% of Medicare for All could have been funded already by the Pentagon.”
Once again, the Dem's newest and "brightest young star" makes for good laughs with her ignorance and lack of general intelligence.
She really has no concept of reality when it comes to Government, to spending, to numbers... well to much actually. She's not scary, that people think she's smart, and has good ideas, THAT is what I find both "scary" as it were, but also sad.
