Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a socialist.

That means Ocasio-Cortez does not deal well with reality.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez melted down when confronted by one brutal fact.

As Black Eye Politics reports:

Overspending and national debt are problems that leveled governments in the past from Rome to the USSR.

Currently, in America, there is over $86,000 worth of national debt per person.

In 2020 America’s government had to spend $300 billion just paying the interest on the debt.

The American government can’t afford to keep spending money at its current rate.

Instead of trying to pay off the debts which were excused by COVID, Democrats are trying to make it a permanent way of life.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said about the Democrats’ $3.5 trillion bill that “this conversation shouldn’t be about numbers” in a CBS News interview on Sunday.

“The head of your caucus, the progressive caucus, was on another network this morning and Rep. Jayapal said $1.5 trillion is just too small,” host Margaret Brennan said. “That’s the number that Senate moderates, Joe Manchin in particular, want to get down to. President Biden, according to our reporting from Ed O’Keefe, our correspondent, says you’re going to have to settle for about $2 trillion. Is that an acceptable ceiling for you?”

“So here’s where I think the problem is,” AOC responded. “It’s that when we talk about top line numbers, there’s a lot that is hidden in that discussion. And so the reason why this conversation shouldn’t be about numbers, but it should be about what substantive programs are willing to be excluded or that–”

“That’s coming from the White House,” Brennan responded.

“Yeah, but the White House isn’t making the demands to exclude universal childcare or universal pre-K,” AOC responded, later adding, “The budget bill that House progressives are trying to fight for, the Biden Build Back Better agenda, includes universal pre-K, free community college, expansion of Medicare; we’re fighting for expansion of Medicaid. And these are the things that we are saying, in addition to the very real climate threat that we have, emissions reductions, are worth standing up for.”

Ocasio-Cortez is so caught up in her utopian dream that she can’t even be bothered to worry about the cost.

She acts like she’s playing with free money but that isn’t the way it works.

Economic numbers matter because they have real-world impacts.

Democrats are trying to spend $15,000 per family in America and they don’t even want to be questioned on the amount of taxpayer dollars they’re spending.

The American people will have to pay, either through direct taxation, higher prices at the store, inflation or economic stagnation which is why it’s important that the Democrats’ spending be stopped.
