THIS AGAIN? Omar Says US Should Use ‘Corporate Tax Cuts’ to Fund Free Healthcare, College

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.23.19

Controversial Congresswoman Ilhan Omar -once again- urged the federal government to use “tax cuts” to finance universal healthcare, tuition-free college, and a “living wage” for the country’s educators.

“We can afford to give trillions of tax cuts to corporations but we can’t afford: Medicare For All, Green New Deal, Cancel Student Debt, Pay teachers a living wage We don’t suffer from scarcity we suffer from greed,” posted Omar on social media.

Fellow Squad-member Rep. Ocasio-Cortez made similar comments last year; suggesting New York City use the tax-cuts offered to Amazon to replace subway lines and increase teachers’ salaries.

“Cost of the GOP Tax Scam for the rich: ~$1.8-2.3 Trillion. Cost of forgiving all student loans in America: ~$1.5 Trillion. Clearly where there’s a will, there’s a way. When people say that there isn’t ‘enough’ to do these things, what they mean is they don’t *want* to do them,” posted Cortez on social media.
