As Twitchy reported yesterday, Obama skipped the Democrat’s new socialist darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in his list of endorsements which seemed to have ticked a bunch of socialists off.
Which of course cracked us up on many, many levels.
Now, we can’t help but wonder if Alexandria took it personally that Obama dissed her because just last night she was talking about how crappy healthcare is in this country and made what we think is a very sideways dig at Obamacare:
Q: How do we pay for Medicare for All?
A: Our current system costs more than M4A.
People already pay hundreds/month for exchange plans with sky-high deductibles.
They pay thousands/year for insurance and STILL can’t afford to see a doctor. And it’s only getting more expensive.

She’s not wrong about Obamacare.
It sucks on many levels.
That being said, she IS wrong that Medicare for all is a cheaper and better option, which tells you just how crappy that option REALLY is.
Most of us are over the phase of hearing about what we should have.
You need to move on to the next step. Maybe that's something that will differentiate you from the others parroting these talking points.

Seems even some Democrats are already ‘over’ She Guevara.

Didn’t those Deductibles get higher AFTER Obamacare rolled out??!

Now, we HOPE she knows this and is making a dig at Obama BUT she likely has no idea what she’s talking about and that she just crapped all over the Left’s golden calf.
I pay $1600 a month for health insurance. My deductible is $5,000. $50 copay It also covers very little. Last year we paid in addition $1,200 for stitches on my kid’s chin, $2,500 for a colonoscopy, and $500 for blood work. Not including all the copays and meds needed we needed.

Our insurance is expensive and almost useless. I'm essentially paying 4000 in premiums for 6 doctor visits per year. Anything serious like a broken bone puts my family in debt. And we live in fear serious diagnosis causing bankruptcy. Insanity only Americans would fall for.

Americans didn’t really fall for anything, well, the Left did, but that’s another story.
What’s truly fascinating about this thread is how many Leftists are complaining about their healthcare without realizing the very care they’re complaining about with higher deductibles and premiums is a result of Obama’s presidency.
And now they want Medicare for all.
You’d think they’d eventually figure out there is no such thing as a free lunch but … nope.
