There’s really nothing to say about this tweet from Rep. Ilhan Omar, only that it appears to be her turn to spread the myth that the government “pays” for tax cuts. If we’d stop paying for those corporate tax cuts, we could fund the Green New Deal, estimated to cost $93 trillion over 10 years, and have enough left over to pay for Medicare for All and forgive student loan debt.
If we have enough money to pay for tax breaks for corporations.
We have enough to invest in Medicare For All, Green New Deal and cancel student debt.

You left out the fine print about the country converting to socialism.

We don’t “pay” for tax breaks. We tax less. Not only do “corporations” employ millions of Americans. Most are owned by your average middle class American. The shareholders. God Bless America 🇺🇸

Lets find the billions that was sent to Baltimore first.

What was it? $16 billion last year in federal grants?
It's not your money.
"Tax breaks" simply means letting people (including the people that make up and are employed by corporations) keep more of THEIR OWN money.

Oh, brother. This is monumentally stupid.

A congresswoman doesn’t even know what “tax breaks” are.

First, you don't "pay for tax cuts'. That money coming in the gov't was never theirs in the first place. Medicare for all, the GND and canceling student debt, is just implementing Soviet socialism and shift costs to the taxpayer. Fuck that.

Who is the "we"? Government gets its money from taxpayers and WE are sick of our money being spent your leftist pet rip-off schemes.

The money that the corporations earn is their money, they earned it.
We don’t want socialism. Period. Go study economics and history.
