In an interview with Trevor Noah on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” Thursday night, socialist darling, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tried to explain how the United States would pay for all of the entitlements the 28 year-old newcomer touted during her campaign – including fully taxpayer-funded Medicare, college tuition, and housing.

“If people pay their fair share, if corporations and the ultra wealthy, for example, as Warren Buffett likes to say, if he pays as much as his secretary paid, a 15 percent tax rate, if corporations paid, if we reverse the tax bill, raised our corporate tax rate to 28 percent– which is not even as high as it was before — if we do those two things and also close some of those loopholes, that’s $2 trillion right there,” she said. “That’s $2 trillion in ten years.”

WIBC host Tony Katz tore into Ocasio-Cortez in today’s Popcorn Moment:

“She has a degree in economics and it blows my mind. And in talking about how she is going to pay for this, she’s not talking about ‘fair share’, she’s talking about you and I as the source of revenue. In other words, we’re not here to better our own lives, we’re here to fund HER dreams. 

…Tell me I’m going to vote for this woman. Tell me ANY rational person is going to vote for this woman.”
