ECONOMICS 101: Cortez Confuses Tax Cuts AGAIN, Wants to ‘Forgive’ Student Debt with Non-Existent Money

Embattled Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez doubled-down on her calls for total student loan forgiveness Wednesday evening; bizarrely suggesting tax cuts could be used to finance her massive proposal.

“Cost of the GOP Tax Scam for the rich: ~$1.8-2.3 Trillion. Cost of forgiving all student loans in America: ~$1.5 Trillion. Clearly where there’s a will, there’s a way. When people say that there isn’t ‘enough’ to do these things, what they mean is they don’t *want* to do them,” posted Cortez on social media.

Cortez made similar comments weeks ago when she suggested New York could use Amazon’s proposed tax breaks to fix the region’s crumbling infrastructure and hire more teachers.
