So we can now add this gem to the already long list of profoundly stupid things she has tweeted.....although this one probably outdoes them all.  So apparently she seized on some article in the Nation about how the Pentagon has moved around $21T in spending on their books.  And so she tweets that we could pay for Medicare for all by simply eliminating the $21T in Pentagon "waste".  Now someone with a modicum of economic literacy would ask a simple question:  Wow, that seems like a lot of money, is it even possible that the Pentagon has spent that much?  As it turns out not only is she economically illiterate (something we already knew) but she has a serious reading comprehension issue.  To wit, the Pentagon has not even spent $21T since it's inception, much less lost track of that much money.

But more to the point, her stupidity has highlighted the absolute fiscal insanity of Medicare for all.  The fact that it would cost more to fund Medicare for all for a mere half a decade than the Pentagon has spent since its inception ought to be enough for even the most diehard left wing nut to come to their senses. But what am I saying?!?!?  Left wing nuts using facts, logic and reason?  BWWWHHHHAHAHAHAHA....that'd be a first.

Alexandria, with due respect.....you need to ask for a refund from BU for your economics degree......they thoroughly cheated you.

I believe she honored the halls of Boston University and not Cornell.  Nevertheless,

Yep, you are right.  Fixed.  My most sincere apologies to Cornell for that error.  Thanks!
