The newly elected Congresswoman, a New York Democrat, was throwing out some ideas on Twitter on how to pay for her socialist "Medicare for all" concept, because "just pay for it" doesn't seem like it will pan out as she expected.

One of Ocasio-Cortez's ideas was to look into Pentagon spending and see where the waste and bookkeeping errors exist, then allocate that money to her 'Medicare for all' idea.

After she posted her idea, she then faced a fierce amount of criticism for it on account of her math being very, very, wrong.

She stated on Twitter,  "$21 TRILLION of Pentagon financial transactions “could not be traced, documented, or explained.”

$21T in Pentagon accounting errors. Medicare for All costs ~$32T.

That means 66% of Medicare for All could have been funded already by the Pentagon.

And that’s before our premiums"














The public does not seem to like Ocasio-Cortez's idea.
