Democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants to implement a number of government programs that are estimated to cost upwards of $40 trillion.
How is she going to pay for those? She doesn’t have an answer.

Though CNN’s Jake Tapper provided her with three minutes to explain, she instead railed against the “systems” and explained why Medicare for all is a necessity.
After getting stonewalled twice, Tapper concluded the line of questioning with, “I’m assuming I’m not going to get an answer on the other $38 trillion.”
.@jaketapper does a great job pressing Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on how she'd pay for her healthcare plan — she says economic activity from millennial who would buy homes if they didn't have student debt — and highlights that she did not actually answer his two attempts to ask.

There is no way to explain how to pay for over $40 trillion in government spending in a manner that would be palpable to voters.
Dear God, what the hell is she talking about? pic.twitter.com/JhwXhh0VZj

Whether she knows how destructive a spending package like that would be or simply has no clue what she’s talking about, there is no way to reasonably sell $40 trillion worth of additional government programs to a large constituent base.
