Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Twitter: “Maybe instead of Republicans drooling over every minute of footage of me in slow-mo, waiting to chop up word slips that I correct in real-tomd, they actually step up enough to make the argument they want to make: that they don’t believe people deserve a right to healthcare.“
Ocasio-Cortez should keep on talking because she’s the gaffe gift that keeps on giving.
U.S. Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., lashed out at Republicans via Twitter on Sunday night, accusing the GOP of “drooling” in anticipation of the 29-year-old’s every misstep.
“Maybe instead of Republicans drooling over every minute of footage of me in slow-mo, waiting to chop up word slips that I correct in real-tomd (sic),” she wrote, “they [should] actually step up enough to make the argument they want to make: that they don’t believe people deserve a right to healthcare.”
She later tweeted a correction on the spelling of “real-time.”
It was the latest in a series of complaints the socialist political newcomer has made on social media since winning her election Nov. 6 in New York’s 14th Congressional District, which includes parts of New York City.
On Thursday, Ocasio-Cortez complained that critics were calling her “divisive” because she participated in a demonstration about climate change two days earlier outside the office of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.
“When I respectfully join young people in an action promoting climate action while encouraging leadership decisions, it’s ‘divisive,’” she tweeted.[…] More

What makes you think it’s the government’s responsibilty to give you health care? Where is that in the constitution? The governments job and the only reason we should pay any tax to the federal government is for military expenses. All other expenses are at state and local level.

Republicans believe everyone deserves a right to healthcare also…the keyword you left out is “FREE”.

Health care professionals don’t work for free. Companies that supply med equip don’t produce it for free. Hospitals and clinics aren’t built for free. Big Pharma doesn’t produce free meds. Insurers are “for profit”. Nothing about health care will ever be “free”.

We are laughing, not drooling. How does any American get through college, let alone run for office, w/out learning the three branches of the US government? #ocasio #STUPID #tcot #p2 pic.twitter.com/7vi1PpOhSN
