As we told you a few days ago, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said that Republicans supporting making coronavirus testing and treatment available to everyone who needs it were basically supporting the idea of socialized medicine. Meanwhile, AOC’s fellow squadmember, Rep. Ilhan Omar, is also using the spread of the virus to push a pet progressive cause:
It’s easy to mock Medicare for All until there’s a pandemic

Gee, it’s a good thing nobody’s politicizing the virus! *Eye roll*
It’s really weird to watch the same people who claim the government’s response to Coronavirus has been incompetent also insist that the pandemic is evidence we should put that same government in charge of every aspect of our healthcare system. https://t.co/jtDAYxyygY

The mixed message is glaring, yet the Minnesota Democrat appears to be completely oblivious to it:
China has universal healthcare. Maybe we can take inspiration from how they're dealing with it. pic.twitter.com/N0augQGW6D

This pandemic started in a Communist country. More Communism isn't the solution, genius. https://t.co/9zkSOr0lgI

Those on the Left like Rep. Omar don’t seem to be understanding those points.
The pandemic is showing just how much socialized healthcare is failing. https://t.co/DsksccvDF3

Considering China has universal healthcare and they have over 80k people infected and over 3200 deaths from the corona virus, suggests govt run Healthcare is a disastrous failure on every level compared to America’s healthcare system(which does need some fixes).

Its easy to promote political slogans when you aren't required to know anything about them to be cheered on by your equally ignorant base. 🙄☕ https://t.co/dEEaeB9OZx

Anyone who thinks Medicare for All would be at all effective is either a fool or a Socialist. But, I repeat myself. https://t.co/A3CUC47bzG

Government administrators would be immune from the pandemic. It. Is.The. Law. The system would be prohibited from being overwhelmed too.
And the healthy bureaucrats would ration care like the NHS plans in the UK. Call it Medicare for Almost*

So in conclusion:
It’s easy to mock politicians, especially during pandemics https://t.co/FAKrbaK3No

They shouldn’t make it so easy.
