AOC Whines About Her Gold Healthcare Plan
AOC Whines About Her Gold Healthcare Plan
December 18, 2019
While impeachment is sucking all the oxygen from the House, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants you to know about her big problem. Yes, that AOC. The Democratic rock star of the House, the congresswoman with six million Twitter followers. Millennial feminists want to be her, and their man-bunned boyfriends want to sleep with her. That AOC.
So what is she whining about? In short, she doesn’t like the fact that she has to choose from lots of healthcare plans. Which are Gold plans, to boot.
I am not kidding. Check out her tweet from Sunday evening.
Members of Congress also have to buy their plans off the exchange. They are Gold plans that are partially subsidized.
That means I get to “choose” btwn 66 complex financial products.
This is absurd. No person should go without healthcare, &no one should go through this, either. pic.twitter.com/bIeD71CD5g

Aw, poor baby! She has to choose between 66 top-end “complex” health care plans, which are partially subsidized by taxpayers. Too much like work, I guess.
Allow me to demonstrate my heartfelt sympathy for AOC’s dilemma.
AOC has no clue what those of us who purchase our health insurance on the individual market go through. Last year, in my state, I had only two — two — carriers to choose from. Plus, the cheapest policy I found had a premium that I couldn’t afford, but unlike AOC, I didn’t qualify for a subsidy.
So what did I do? I have had to purchase three-month short-term healthcare policies, which I have had to renew. That’s because the first short-term plan I purchased — one which I would’ve had for all of 2019 — dropped my doctors and my hospitals. I had to hunt again for new policies.
But my dilemma doesn’t count as far AOC is concerned. After all, I live in Flyover Country.
I wonder how Rep. Ocasio-Cortez chooses her auto insurance? Doesn’t she have a bunch of policies to wade through? For example, the website zebra.com lists 20 of the cheapest auto insurance companies selling policies in New York state. Then they list the top-rated companies in New York. In addition, they also tell the reader about the myriad of NY insurance laws on the books.
And that’s just one website. How does poor little AOC wrap her noggin around all that confusing information to purchase car insurance?
Seriously, do you ever wonder how she manages to tie her shoes in the morning?
Yes, AOC is dumb, alright — dumb like a fox. Because with that tweet complaining about “66 complex financial products” that are so hard to understand, she’s setting the stage for enticing voters to support Medicare for All. Which, by the way, is right at the top of her agenda.
Reminder of what people are calling the “radical, extreme-left agenda”:
✅ Medicare for All
✅ A Living Wage & Labor Rights
✅ K-16 schooling, aka Public Colleges
✅ 100% Renewable Energy
✅ Fixing the pipes in Flint
✅ Not Hurting Immigrants
✅ Holding Wall Street Accountable

But if you say that her Medicare for All is “socialism,” she’ll say you’re pushing a “distraction.” Healthcare is a human right, she says.
But that’s just a small part of the progressive Democrat agenda. You’re not smart enough to make choices about your health insurance, you need a progressive government to do it for you.
Moreover, you shouldn’t be able to choose to purchase a gun. The government needs to keep them out of your hands because you’re too dangerous when you own them.
Nor should you be free to speak your mind on social media — progressives will control what you say and read on Facebook or Twitter. In addition, if you believe in a faith that opposes the LGBT agenda, you have no right to express your beliefs in the public square. The government calls that “hate speech.”
And if your child attends a failing public school — well, it sucks to be you. And to be your child. You have no school choice, government will decide where your child is
Finally, do you want President Trump re-elected in 2020? Progressive Democrats want to take that choice away from you, too. Because they despise him, they don’t think you deplorable plebeians should be able to return him to office for another four years. That’s what this drive to impeach Trump is all about, of course.
AOC is really not that befuddled about her Cadillac healthcare plans. She knows she can get whatever help she needs in choosing one. What she wants to do is to convince you to give up your choices to Big Government.
