Nikki Haley started a Twitter feud with democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) after she floated her idea for a solution to the coronavirus pandemic.

Ocasio-Cortez offered a short tweet on Thursday about the pandemic.

“To get the virus under control, we need to pay people to stay home,” she tweeted.
Haley shut down the plan in one tweet hours later.

“AOC, Are you suggesting you want to pay people to stay home from the money you take by defunding the police? Or was that for the student debts you wanted to pay off, the Green New Deal or Medicare for All?” she asked.

“Where is the money,” she added in a hashtag.
Haley was referring to the progressive congresswoman’s support for the “Defund the Police” policy set forth by the Black Lives Matter movement, her support for canceling student debt, her plan to combat global warming, and her support for Medicare for All.

Ocasio-Cortez did not appreciate the constructive criticism and fired back in a second tweet.

“Republicans are mad at this when they literally just voted to do just this in March. The reason they’re opposed to it now is because last time they got a Wall Street bailout and this time all that’s left is helping working people, the disabled, the poor, etc.,” she claimed without evidence.

Ocasio-Cortez has been criticized and mocked for her Green New Deal and the approximate price of the plan, which some experts estimate could be as much as $94 trillion. In June 2019, she admitted that it would cost at least $10 million and added that it was not a fun number to say.

She also earned some mockery when she employed some bad math to argue that the government could already have paid for two-thirds of the $32 trillion price tag for Medicare for All.

Here’s more about Ocasio and her high-spending policies:

    Cortez is a bug-eyed whore who lives in a fantasy world. Her solution to everything “Throw money at it!”
    Does she actually realize that money isn’t an infinite resource? I mean, does she really? With most politicians I would assume a certain economic education, but Cortez’s only job before this was sucking dicks.

  • Gravis Mushnick says:

    Nathan … you forget … she’s (AOC) not talking about throwing any of “her” money.

    It’ll be anyone else’s BUT hers.

    But like Ronald Reagan confidante and fellow world leader Margaret Thatcher said so many years ago “Eventually, you’ll run out of other peoples money”.

    But AOC is not old enough to remember Ms. Thatcher, nor is she smart enough to understand the concept … she just continues to run that pie-hole advocating one socialist policy after another.

  • AB says:

    It’s really scary that AOC was actually elected.

    • Big Montana says:

      Isn’t it obvious yet? None of these communists were legally “voted” in to office, these worthless bums were placed in there seats by a coordinated, global “elites” to push their world domination agenda. Elections have been stolen by these insane criminals my whole life.

    • Hank says:

      It’s really scary that AOC was actually, re-elected.

  • Intellectual Impaler says:

    She hasn’t learned, Tis best to let people to think you are a smart than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

  • LST says:

    In any other life Cortez/Kotex would be a $20 whore giving blowjobs in an alley.

  • Janice Alderson says:
