AOC admits Medicare for all may not happen if Sanders elected president

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) admitted this week that Medicare for All may not become a reality if Bernie Sanders is elected president. ’A president can’t wave a magic wand and pass any legislation they want,’ Cortez told reporters. The worst-case scenario would be a public option with the first $29,000 of a person’s income exempt from taxes.

Did anyone really expect that god king heart attack could executive order a program into existence that’s roughly 10-20 times more expensive than the current entire federal expenditure? I mean if so then that’s profound ignorance

She is saying it will take more than magic and wishes to implement. Start by disarming the population. Then make everything a program of the state. Get as many people dependent on big brother as possible before finally sending the dissenting reminders to the gulag.

Ocasio-Cortez wasn’t tempering her endorsement of Sanders or suggesting he back off Medicare for All. On the contrary, she made it clear ― both in the original quote and later on Twitter ― that one reason she supports Sanders is that he campaigns on his ideals, pushing the boundaries of debate as far as he can. for those too lazy to read the full article, STFU.

WHATTTT??? You mean leftys promising the world JUST to get elected???? Impossible!!! Corbyn in the UK had SUUUCCCHH great plans too, free this, free that, and he was gonna magically pull it all out of thin air? This is just shocking to me.....

if, & that's a big if, you get past the insurance part of Medicare for all,(by the way health insurance isn't any longer insurance by definition), you will then have to get over the AMA hurtle.

After Trump, he should be able to "do whatever he wants!" Pass it into reality. Fire some of the GOP & DEMS if he has to, like Trump.
