As Twitchy told you, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is going full speed ahead with the belief that we need to be more like socialist countries because free stuff. Which raises an important question: How are we supposed to pay for all that free stuff?
Well, skeptics, never fear. Because she’s got this whole thing totally figured out:
"We're here to talk about wages and education. We're here to talk about saving our planet…we're here to talk about people paying their fair share, and we're here to talk about saving the country, frankly."

Remember, folks. She majored in economics.
Undo tax cuts, increase corporate taxes AND impose a carbon tax. To pay for?… Well, she's not really clear on that. https://t.co/Lx6a3ZStzg

Painful. She tries to pay for an annual budget line-item (converting economy to renewables), with 10-year budget savings from higher taxes on the wealthy, impossible even if she hadn't wildly understated the cost. Then confuses the military's total budget with a proposed increase https://t.co/0Dzfx2X7Pq

Alexandria seems to be confused by a lot of things.
"How do you pay for your agenda?"
"Oh, we just tax the hell out of everything under the sun and MAGIC!!" https://t.co/iVNxPZQisH
