The Willful Blindness of Socialism

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez puts her foot in her mouth once again.

In a telling interview with Pod Save America released yesterday, current leftist darling and Democratic House…

“You know, they say 'how are you gonna pay for it,' as though they haven’t used these same ways to pay for unlimited wars, to pay for trillion-dollar tax cuts and tax cut extensions. They use these mechanisms to pay for these things all the time. They only want to know . . . It just seems like their pockets are only empty when we’re talking about education and investing in human capital in the United States: education, healthcare, housing, and investing in the middle class. All of a sudden, you know, there’s nothing left. All of the sudden, the wealthiest nation in the world, we’re just totally scarce. We have complete scarcity when it comes to the things that are most important. And so for me, I think it belies a lack of moral priority and it’s unfortunate.”
