Whenever elected officials – Republican or Democrat – are pressed about paying for a program they are proposing, they normally freeze up, stumble over their words or just do not have an answer. Generally, it’s all three but sometimes you’ll get a nice combination.
For instance, anytime Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders are asked how to pay for any of the massively expensive programs that both are proposing, they spout on and on about generalities and then say this and that are rights and no American should be guaranteed these items.
Short answer: Neither have a way to fund their programs without taking us further and further into debt.
So, that was the exact same answer Rep. Ilhan Omar gave when asked how she plans to pay for her plan that guarantees a job for everyone.
