She really is the gift that keeps on giving,


Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ✔ @Ocasio2018 Insurance groups are recommending GoFundMe as official policy - where customers can die if they can’t raise the goal in time - but sure, single payer healthcare is unreasonable.

Just think ... she used to be a business owner. No wonder she's bitter about capitalism.

I think it's funny a soon to be congressman tweeted that.

I think she is a naive 29 year old who doesn't have a clue to accomplish what she promised voters.

But Trump has had far funnier tweets than this one.

Her defenders should be along shortly to announce your "obsession" over this tool.

I can't help but think she will be doing some major whining and finger pointing when she has to work within Congress. It's not going to be I want this and it happens. Wake up call coming.

Yeah, she'll be an effective tool, but not in the way her followers are imagining.

I for one am obsessed with her. For good reason. We need better comedians in this country.

Is there a difference between "single-payer" and "single-prayer"?

At what point do the other democrats have the conference call and say "Look, just shut......the hell.......up.... If someone wants an interview, say no, if someone calls up to get your thoughts, shut your trap, feign your sick, pretend you cant speak english, tell them wrong number, but for the love of god........stop opening your mouth" "Just sit your butt in the seat you were elected to and do what we freaking tell you"

Again, the problem with socialism is that it imagines that if people need $20 to get by and one guy has $40 while the other has nothing, the answer is to take $20 from the guy with $40 and simply give it to the guy with nothing and then everyone will be happy. They further think they can continue to do this day after day and nothing will ever change.

The guy with $40 will continue to have $40 and the guy with nothing will always have nothing.

They never imagine that humans being humans, behaviors will change. They never thing the guy with $40 might resent having half of his taken and simply decide not to bother and only come in with $35 or $25 or even just $20 to avoid having the excess taken.

They never stop to ask why it is the guy with nothing actually has nothing. Is it because he genuinely is not able to provide for himself? Is it because he has made poor choices in life or is it because he won't do for himself and prefers to be enabled by handouts from the system? Or is it a combination of the above? Is it actually possible this man could do for himself if the time and effort were made on his part? Instead of simply enabling him in his poverty through giving him the hard work of others, would it be possible to make him self-supporting so he could earn his own $20?

Socialism never addresses those questions. It's too busy making things fair to bother.

What makes you think they haven't tried that?

What's not to get? This woman can't get a heart transplant because she doens't have medical coverage for the needed medication. The "committee" is recomending she raise the money she needs to secure the medication through a fundraiser. Maybe you didn't get that.



So, if this woman can't raise the $10,000, she won't get her heart transplant and will die. Get it?

If she gets the transplant and cannot continue the medications afterward, she will die too. Get it?

Did you know that even with medications, there is also no guarantee? Father-in-law had a bone transplant, and even with medication, his body rejected it. Thankfully, it wasn't something he needed to live.

There are so few donor organs that they cannot in good conscience approve a transplant to someone who will not be able to continue with the best chance of success.

Frankly, I see her as something of a national treasure. Imagine, she manages to make Shiela Jackson Lee look "almost" smart.

All I have to say is, "Thanks government for getting involved with healthcare and making it worse! And so because you made it worse. . . . . you honestly want us to think you'll make it better?"
