AOC Whines That Asking Her to Do Basic Tasks Is 'Absurd'

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has often been accused of being one of the not-so-bright members of Congress, and she’s going to make sure she holds onto that designation. Apparently, the media darling and “squad” member doesn’t know how to choose a healthcare plan and finds it “absurd” that we have so many options.

I guess she doesn’t realize that competition breeds cost savings, nor that there are different plans for different types of people because, and stick with me here, people have different medical needs. A 60-year-old woman doesn’t need maternity coverage and a 20-year-old man doesn’t need coverage for a hysterectomy. Shocking, I know.

Perhaps the bigger issue here, though, is that an elected member of one of the most powerful bodies in the world doesn’t know how to use the sort function on a search.

These are the people who want to run your life from cradle to grave. AOC is incapable of shopping for health insurance, but she’s got a plan to revamp the entire economy that’ll only cost $93 trillion. Makes sense.

Also, wasn’t Obamacare supposed to fix all this? Maybe I slept through the apologies, but I distinctly remember Democrats insisting that the Affordable Care Act was going to solve all our ills and make it incredibly easy to get insurance. Not easy enough for some Congressional members I guess.

AOC continued by claiming she was only able to get health insurance after coming to Congress.

Given her previous income level coupled with New York State’s benefits and federal subsidies, the idea that she simply wasn’t able to get health insurance prior is laughable. She’s lying about that because she knows her base will eat it up.

But these are our intellectual betters. Those who want to run the entire healthcare system but are unable to pick a healthcare plan from a simple list of benefits, something your average high school dropout has no problem with. Behold their greatness.
