O-Cortez Flaunts Her Math Skills Describing Paying for Medicare-4-All

Soon-to-be commie congresswoman Alexandria Obtuse-Cortez suggested that “Medicare for all” costs be covered by money allocated to the Department of Defense. She thinks that the Pentagon loses $21 trillion a year and she will take that from their budget.

She might possibly have a reading comprehension problem and misread an article from The Nation. The hard-left magazine reported, “…a mind-boggling $21 trillion of Pentagon financial transactions between 1998 and 2015 could not be traced, documented, or explained.”

She took that to mean per year.

She might not understand this, but she was ridiculously wrong:

Senior fellow at The Manhattan Institute, Brian Reidl, tweeted: Wow. You claim $21 Trillion in Pentagon Waste? The entire Pentagon budget from 1789-2018 has totaled $18 trillion, Come on, This is embarrassing.

He explained: For those wondering: In the original study, $21 trillion refers to transfers back-and-forth between accounts. So the same $1 can be counted 1000’s of times. It *does not* mean that $21 trillion in total spending was mis-spent. AOC should have realized $21T *spent* is crazy.

AOC’s math must be common core socialist math or maybe she just has no clue.

A Socialist is someone who has nothing and is eager to share it with you.

Before you take a meat cleaver to military spending, know that the Russians and Chinese are catching up with US military capability, perhaps surpassing it in the not too distant future. Look to history. Perceived weakness led Germany to attack Russia and the Japenese to attack the United States.
