It is scary that people in her bar where she apparently tried out this idea, don't understand basic math.

Send her a message if you want to keep your insurance and would be broken hearted at losing it after working hard for it all your life.

I don't understand why any articles are printed about her statements. She constantly issues statements that have nothing to do with reality and are only for media space time. If she is as dumb as her statements indicate, she should go back to kindergarden and start over. My thought is that she is simply ACTING stupid.

AOC is the best thing that ever happened to the GOP. She is a never ending source of campaign material. And she's too stupid, arrogant, self righteous and sure of her convictions to grasp that. Well grasp anything except your wallet.

I suspect that AOC has never bought health insurance, nor even had any, unless it was provided by an employer. She is certainly no authority on health care (except maybe free abortions!) Now she has a Cadillac plan, courtesy of taxpayers, which she would retain after the rest of us were subjected to a health program run by bureaucrats! The DMV of healthcare!

I know people who work full time jobs just to get the health insurance. They could get by with an array of gigs otherwise. If that is taken away, it will undermine an incentive to seek-out good employment.

Nobody except Federal government employees (including members of Congress), state and local government workers, union members, people employed by large corporations or law firms, and others, all of whom have excellent benefits under their private insurance policies that they would not have under Medicare. Medicare only reimburses at 80%, has no stop-loss, has big deductibles, no family coverage and offers such low reimbursements that more and more doctors are refusing to take it. It would be a disaster for the entire health-care industry to impose this on everyone.
