Brain Dead Ocasio-Cortez: We Have To Break "The Mistaken Idea" That Taxes Pay For All Spending

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) declared that we must "break the mistaken idea" that taxes pay for 100% of government spending in an interview with NPR's Steve Inskeep on Thursday to promote her 'Green New Deal' legislative proposal.

"The first thing that we need to do is kind of break the mistaken idea that taxes pay for a hundred percent of government expenditure. It's just not how government expenditure works," Ocasio-Cortez explained.

Ocasio-Cortez believes that the economy will grow if money is borrowed to make an "investment" in the Green New Deal and it will eventually pay for itself.

Good Lord. This woman is a moron.
Even the worst Lefties here on DI have got to be embarrassed over her.
Just when you think she has reached the limits of stupidity she proves us wrong.

1. This is what she learned in the government schools

I'm not surprised she thinks this.

4. Yep, exactly what I was taught

in my Econ 101 class, back in the old days they were called automatic stabilizers. The government would keep the economy on an even keel, not too hot, not too cold. Recessions were a thing of the past.

2. Fortunately, some, parents of children in public schools

set their children straight about the communist dogma before their minds are bent.

10. Why hasn't she suggested that the government can just print all the money for her programs?

We could quantitatively ease our way to prosperity.

12. Ah yes!

The ole "Allowing people to keep their hard-earned money is the government spending it"

Proof positive that she subscribes to the idea that all money and wealth belongs to the government.


That is called Communism sweetheart.
