The progressive agenda to wield control over the lives of the American people is happening via a big government agenda. Under the guise of compassion and care, the left-wing is advocating for extremely far-left policies which would transfer autonomy and power away from Americans and to the United States government. To add insult to injury, progressives have the gall to suggest that the people of this nation will somehow be happy about the success of an extreme, socialist agenda.
One of the main culprits just so happens to be House Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. This particular congresswoman has repeatedly made headlines this year for her ridiculous statements and, as of late, her public spat with President Trump. Ocasio-Cortez hasn’t done herself any favors either by accusing Democrats, such as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, of racism when they urge her to cool down.
Fox News reports that Ocasio-Cortez’s latest blunder comes in the form of alleging that not a single American will be “heartbroken” to be booted off private healthcare in exchange for Medicare-for-All.
AOC on Americans Losing their Private Healthcare
Medicare-for-All is a far left policy which progressives have been looking to ram through government for quite some time now. Despite the obvious pitfalls of higher taxes, lesser quality of care, governmental control, and more, Democrats are still trying to sell this to the American people. Virtually all of the 2020 Democrat candidates have endorsed Medicare-for-All and remain dismissive of the reality that many Americans love their private health insurance.
Rep. Ocasio-Cortez certainly has this position, which, given her stance on the issues, isn’t that shocking. Sahil Kapur of Bloomberg recent reported via Twitter what Ocasio-Cortez said in regards to Americans who currently have private healthcare.
These types of statements speak volumes about AOC and why electing socialists into government isn’t a good idea. There are so many people in this country who love their private healthcare insurance and would, in fact, be more than “heartbroken” if they were to lose this care in exchange for government-controlled healthcare. Democrats like Ocasio-Cortez could truly benefit from being honest with themselves and getting real about what Americans truly want.
Americans and Private Healthcare
There are many Americans who love their private healthcare. People in this country like having control over their lives and access to options. This is something which progressives can’t appreciate because individual autonomy is a political liability to radical leftists. The far-left thrives off of government having the utmost power over citizens’ lives.
When government inevitably abuses this power, the left will then pretend to be outraged and offer lackluster solutions which only lead to further abuse. It’s a cycle which Democrats have learned to use to their political advantage and now they’re trying to convince Americans that all of this is for the best interest of the people.
