Ocasio-Cortez Gets Uber-Defensive on ‘60 Minutes’ When Asked How She’ll Pay for $40 Trillion Programs, Can’t Come Up with Answer

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continues to say dumb things so she’s going to continue to be in the news. The media likes to pretend that conservatives are jealous of her or obsessed with her or something but that’s just nonsense. As long as she says things that don’t make sense she’s going to be talked about and that’s ultimately going to help conservatives.

One of the biggest problems Ocasio-Cortez faces is that she has no idea how to pay for any of the things she wants.

When asked about that, she has trouble coming up with an answer…

From The Daily Wire:


Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) was again unable to explain how she intends to pay for $40 trillion in far-left big government programs during a Sunday interview on CBS News’ “60 Minutes” with host Anderson Cooper.

“How are you going to pay for all of this?” Cooper asked.

Ocasio-Cortez got defensive, responding: “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, health care and education,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “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.”

“There are Democrats, obviously, who are worried about your affect on the party,” Cooper responded. “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.”

“What makes it unrealistic?” Ocasio-Cortez asked.

“How to pay for it,” Cooper responded

You know you’ve got issues when you’re a liberal and Anderson Cooper isn’t buying what you’re selling.
