Election Day will finally deliver the gift of Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (see Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Compares Climate Change to Nazi Germany and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Explains Banning Press: I Was Creating a Sanctuary Space). As a socialist in New York City, she’ll enjoy a lifetime appointment. New Yorkers can expect a lifetime of socialist gems like this one, where Nina Pinta finds having to pay for her policies puzzling.
“No, people often say, like, how are you going to pay for it and I find the question so puzzling because ‘How do you pay for something that’s more affordable? How do you pay for cheaper rent?’ You just pay for it. We’re paying more now.”
Okay, sweetie. I see the problem. But the interviewer doesn’t mean YOU, the person receiving the government entitlement. He means YOU, the government who takes money from taxpayers to pay for things.
When you give someone something for free, even though they’re currently paying for it, that thing doesn’t automatically become free to produce or exist. Someone still has to pay for it. Be it a sandwich, a roll of duct tape, or a razor blade on which you stare longingly when you understand the truly stupid are amassing so much power.
These next twenty or so years of Congresswoman Cortez are going to be fun. Fun in the ironic sense. The way a proctologist exam is fun.
