How can the liberals defend this kook?

 

 

"$21 TRILLION of Pentagon financial transactions “could not be traced, documented, or explained.”

$21T in Pentagon accounting errors. Medicare for All costs ~$32T.

That means 66% of Medicare for All could have been funded already by the Pentagon.

And that’s before our premiums.

Brian Riedl, Senior Fellow at the Manhattan Institute, explained why Ocasio-Cortez's tweet was utter lunacy, noting that the Department of Defense has not even spent $21 trillion in the over 70 years that it has existed.

Riedl noted that the entire Pentagon budget from 1789-2018 has only totaled $18 trillion, which is based on records from the Office of Management and Budget.

How embarrassing to be a Masshole:

That is Ed Markey from Massachusetts.  He was an embarrassment to mankind, but Massholes didnt get it.  Now maybe they will feel some real shame.

 

Why is your Senator hanging out with a socialist?  How come?  Do you approve?

She's a lot like Trump in that she just says stuff and her supporters lap it up.

Much more dangerous though, because after all its socialism

Who "can" be?  The POTUS.  Any POTUS.  Without question.

 

Now how about you tell us which one is doing a better job?

She gets a $1.2m budget to run her affairs.  Hire staff, pay office rent, etc.

 

Im interested to see how she puts her socialist  principles in action with regards to her allocation of her budget

Her being elected just proves people vote for free stuff and ignore intelligence, education and ability to govern.  And that’s the final step for folks that do nothing to votes themselves more of money other people earned. It only gets uglier from here.
