“Tapper pressed, noting correctly that he didn’t ask why she believed in making the investments she supports but rather how she would pay for them. Ocasio-Cortez then responded with this: ‘Well, when you look again at, again, how our health care works, currently, we pay — much of these costs go into the private sector. So what we see is, for example, a year ago, I was working downtown in a restaurant. I went around and I asked, how many of you folks have health insurance? Not a single person did, because these — they were paying — they would have had to pay $200 a month for — for a payment for insurance that had an $8,000 deductible.’
Ocasio-Cortez is making the case that if government took over more aspects of peoples’ lives currently controlled by private industry, costs would go down on things like health insurance. So the $40 trillion price tag for her programs would be less.”
