Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez admitted this week that Sen. Bernie Sanders may have to compromise and nix his ambitious Medicare for All plan if he is elected president.
The New York congresswoman, a staunch supporter of the more progressive single-payer healthcare system, made the revelation in an interview with HuffPost that was published Thursday.
Ocasio-Cortez noted the difficulties as president of passing legislation, especially for a politically unpopular policy like Medicare for All.

Hey AOC, why don’t you and Bernie check yourselves in to the nearest mental hospital? Problem solved.
It’s all about setting the noose with them. Incrementally setting the noose. Maybe not tight now, but a little tighter next election.
If Bernie does end up winning beyond the margin for socialist fraud, watch how quickly the narrative will change to “well, he can’t do anything without congress.” It will be a pretend federalism Renaissance on the left to make the rubes feel maybe comfortable handing government over to a commie.
She sure hung tough for the ole Bern didn’t she? Must have lasted three or four weeks before that cave.
Honest to God this chick is too stupid to be an idiot.
Give the girl a dancing pole and send her on her way
A national health care plan is very popular.
Trump promised one, and I believe that tipped the balance in the blue wall states he needed to win.
It is politically impossible, not because it is unpopular but because the forces opposed to it are too powerful.
If there’s one issue that unites the “donor community” (how disgusting that there is such a thing), it’s this one - because the organized skimming off the top of our current methods of paying for hospital, physician, and nursing services is enriching too many of those “donors”.
Why would a politician, tasked with representing her constituents, want to pass a policy that is so politically unpopular?
If they want to pass productive laws that are unpopular they should start to balance the budget.
or just scrap talking about it
She is not really stupid. She is aggressively ignorant, invinvibly ignorant and she was cute until the witless fanaticism warped her face and hardened her eyeballs.
It’s the bait of bait and switch on the path to power. She’s not supposed to admit it’s a lie till after the election. Barmaids make poor politicians...
The true mark of a progressive. Espouse what sells, not what you believe.
After the election do what YOU want!
Re post 10: Well said.
“”Ocasio-Cortez noted the difficulties as president of passing legislation””
Huh? Who does she think PASSES legislation? Who needed to be reminded? Who on earth can take this person seriously? She’s practicing for the day when she can run the whole country? I’ll be gone by then..thank goodness!
