[Ed. – At some point the Democrats are going to be forced to acknowledge this character is not ready for prime time. Either that or they are going to need to find some way of limiting her floor time in the House. As things stand, she is a non-stop ad for voting Republican.]
Representative-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez responded earlier this year to questions about the projected tens of trillions of dollars price tag for funding the dream of “Medicare for all” by saying you “just pay for it.” Now, Ocasio-Cortez has a similar question about the border wall that President Trump wants:
And just like that, GOP discovers $5.7 billion for a wall.
What if we instead added $5.7B in teacher pay?
Or replacing water pipes?
Or college tuition/prescription refill subsidies?
Or green jobs?
But notice how no one’s asking the GOP how they’re paying for it. https://t.co/jXdm1w9bpy

Who wants to tell her?
Here’s the thing… umm… defending our borders is actually… like… a function of Federal government. And the stuff you listed is… like… so not. https://t.co/2UCpymb3oe
