Give Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez credit for this much: she really knows how to lean into her delusional ignorance. After touting the greatness of the VA system and suggesting that what America really needs is “VA for all,” she doubled down over the weekend:

More from the Washington Free Beacon:

Ocasio-Cortez acknowledged the criticism her opposition to VA reform had received, but doubled down on her defense of the status quo at the agency, according to video of the Queens town hall captured by America Rising.

“You might have heard Fox News talking about it,” Ocasio-Cortez said, “because there is a myth that all VAs everywhere are broken.”

The freshman congresswoman said the goal is to “starve” the agency of funding.

“If we can starve them of budgets and make sure they can’t do their job, then we can say the whole system should be thrown away,” she said at the Queens town hall. “I’m not going to back down from protecting the VA.”

What the hell is she talking about?

She’s lying or delusional. Most likely a combination of both.

Her willful ignorance is downright criminal.

God forbid.
