Channeling her inner southern draw, Democratic Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D) took issue with Republicans, Florida Senator Marco Rubio, and his tweet asserting that “Not every democrat is a socialist, but every socialist is a democrat.”
Rep. Ocasio-Cortez not only questioned past Wall Street and Big Energy bailouts by the federal government but questioned Sen. Rubio over the very “socialized healthcare” that she as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives is afforded.
“Curious what you call GOP giving away billions in public funds to Wall St & fossil fuel companies,” asked Rep. Ocasio-Cortez. ” Or what you call YOUR ability to go to Walter Reed hospital & receive socialized healthcare for free? Funny how it’s only “socialism” when others get what y’all give yourselves.”
That “socialized healthcare” at “Walter Reed hospital” Ocasio-Cortez receives and accuses Rubio accepting isn’t free, is the Affordable Care Act, the same legislation congressional Democrats are looking to preserve.
Walter Reed Medical Center provides care for the president, vice president, members of the military and their families, Supreme Court justices, and members of the U.S. Congress.
