Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez truly wants America to be a socialist country.
Her disdain for the country she lives in seems to have no bounds.
And she just crossed a line by angering millions of veterans with seven words.
The veteran community is one of the most pro-Trump voting blocks in America today.
Compared to the rest of the population, they have a significantly higher support for Trump, and the policies he supports.
So right out of the gate, there seems to be little support from the veteran community for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
And there is good reason for this considering that she supports the same policies of many of the enemies of the United States.
But Ocasio-Cortez doesn’t just have veteran opposition for her policies, but for statements that she continues to make.
Perhaps the most pressing issue for veterans is the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), which provides health and other benefits to military veterans.
And military veterans overwhelmingly have issues with the VA health benefits they receive.
The system, which is essentially a microcosm for socialized medicine, is inefficient.
One just needs to ask virtually any veteran and they understand this, and polling supports this.
To fix this, President Trump supports the idea of allowing those with military health benefits to use them outside the VA system in the free market, a measure that polling shows has support from 90 percent of veterans.
There is little surprise that Ocasio-Cortez despises this idea, as it involves the free market where she wants the government to fully control.
So in order to make this argument, she stated that, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” at a recent town hall.
“The idea that this thing that isn’t broken, this thing that provides the highest quality care to our veterans somehow needs to be fixed, optimized, tinkered with until you don’t even recognize it anymore,” Ocasio-Cortez went on to explain.
But, as the people who actually use the system know, it is broken.
Her statement shows just how blind she is in her pursuit of socialism.
She isn’t willing to give veterans something that 90 percent of them support just so she can continue with the illusion that government healthcare works better than the free market.
Veteran’s groups are speaking out against Ocasio-Cortez on this matter.
Speaking to the Washington Free Beacon, the executive director of Concerned Veterans of America, Nate Anderson showed his displeasure with her assessment.
“The congresswoman is off base with her assessment,” Anderson said. “Just because some veterans in the VA system are getting good care, doesn’t mean all are. And for those who are not, they deserve more choice so they can get the care they need.”
Like all socialists, who are touting a failed system, Ocasio-Cortez doesn’t seem to care.
Despite constantly touting her support for “democracy,” she sure doesn’t care about listening to 90 percent of veterans who agree on this.
Do you support allowing veterans to use their VA benefits in the free market?
