Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez appeared on the Rachel Maddow show to giver her thoughts on President Trump’s State of the Union. The crazy eyed Socialist ignorantly claimed Trump was unprepared and didn’t do his homework.
Maddow asked,“Let me ask you first for your response to what you heard tonight from the president. Obviously this is the first State of the Union you’ve ever attended as a member of Congress. What was your experience tonight and what did you think of what you heard?”
Ocasio-Cortez responded, “I think that the president was unprepared. I don’t think that he did his homework. You know, we’ve seen States of the Union addresses delivered by many presidents, Democrat and Republican. They almost always have substantive policies that are offered.”
Ocasio-Cortez continued, “I agree with Senator Klobuchar there that there was no plan. There was no plan to address our opioid crisis, there was no plan to address the cost of healthcare, there was no plan to increase wages. I had to ask myself, is this a campaign stop or is this a State of the Union?”
Ocasio-Cortez claimed Trump didn’t provide substance on three issues, but it’s because she didn’t listen nor pay attention to the facts and stats of America today.
1. Opioid crises- Trump talking about the wall and border security is in fact talking about the opioid crises considering a mass amount cross the border.
2. Healthcare- President Trump has opposed the affordable care act through his entire term, but Democrats refuse to have a real substantive conversation on the topic. Instead Democrats like AOC want Obamacare in larger scales “Medicare for all.”
3. Wage increases- The average wage in America has skyrocketed since President Trump passed his tax cuts. In other words wage increases were already solved by Trump and AOC won’t accept the reality.
