New York congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continues to make mind-boggling comments.
During an interview with Univision’s Jorge Ramos, the socialist was asked how American taxpayers would pay for the multi-billion dollar “Medicare for all” plan that she and other far-left Democrats support.
