Despite pushing for a socialist “Medicare for all” plan that countless experts argue would bankrupt the nation, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is now all of a sudden concerned about paying for things.
On Thursday, the Republican-led U.S. House of Representatives approved $5.7 billion in funding for the wall between the U.S. and Mexico.
And just like that, GOP discovers $5.7 billion for a wall.
What if we instead added $5.7B in teacher pay?
Or replacing water pipes?
Or college tuition/prescription refill subsidies?
Or green jobs?
But notice how no one’s asking the GOP how they’re paying for it. https://t.co/jXdm1w9bpy

The measure has not yet been voted on in the Senate amid ongoing negotiations, and the partial government shut down on Saturday morning.
But in response to the $5.7 billion for the wall in the House bill, the New York socialist took to Twitter to claim “no one’s asking the GOP how they’re paying for it.”
