On Wednesday's episode of "Pat Gray Unleashed," Pat Gray and Keith Malinak discussed Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's pre-midterm interview with CNN reporter Jorge Ramos. Ramos pressed Ocaiso-Cortez on her policies and how they will be funded.
Medicare for all
"Medicare for all. Is it too expensive," Ramos inquired.
Without hesitation, Ocasio-Cortez said, "No."
"People often say, like, 'How are you going to pay for it?' and I find the question so puzzling because, how do you pay for something that is more affordable? How do you pay for cheaper rent? You just pay for it," she said.
Under her plan, medical services would not actually be free of charge but rather free at the time of service, which "means that people will not delay going to the dentist because they can't pay at the time of service."
Tuition-free university for all
Ramos pressed Ocasio-Cortez on how we would be able to afford her plan for a tuition-free public university for all.
Ocasio-Cortez asserted that we would pay for trade school level or collegiate level education for all the same way that we already pay for tuition-free K-12 for all.
"In the same way that we made a decision as a country to say we need to educate people to a 12th-grade level, we need to make the decision to educate people to a trade school or collegiate level." Ocasio-Cortez said.
"So we can afford that?" Ramos asked.
"Absolutely," she replied.
Pat lamented that she must be of the mindset that the federal government can just print more money as needed because she made no mention of where the federal government would acquire the funds to pay for her socialist programs.
