Medicare For Everyone: “You Just Pay For It" (Victim Board)

OCASIO-CORTEZ: “No. People often say, like, how are you going to pay for it? And I find the question so puzzling because how do you pay for something that’s more affordable? How do you pay for cheaper rent? How do you pay for — you just pay for it. And we’re paying more now! So it’s not that that we’re saying this whole system is free, we’re saying it is free of cost at the point of service. So that means that you’re not delaying going to the dentist because you don’t have the cash at the point of service.”

RAMOS: “Number nine, tuition-free public universities for all. Who will pay for that?”

OCASIO-CORTEZ: “So, we’re already paying for tuition-free K-12, and in the same way that we made a decision as a country to say we need to educate people to a 12th grade level, our economy has evolved and that means we need to make the decision to educate people to a trade school or collegiate level.”

RAMOS: “So we can afford that?”

OCASIO-CORTEZ: “Absolutely, absolutely.”
