    Ironically I only find conservative sources reporting it, but I made sure to find one with audio.

    She did say we are paying more now, so free healthcare would be cheaper so that is how we "just pay for it." Said the same thing for free college and trade schools too, said we're paying for it now so we are already paying for it, government paid education would be cheaper.
    But never said how government is going to pay for either. Either she doesn't realize that there is a difference between the individual paying for it and the government, or didn't want to say the words "raise taxes." But she did say "you just pay for it."
    Okey, but that was not  in the Cuomo interview right?
    I believe that is correct. Right quote, wrong interview I guess.
    So you're saying some kind of doctoring... is at play...


    I wouldn't say that. The point of the meme was to poke fun at the fact that for all these changes she hasn't said how we or the government is going to pay for it.
    Who cares if the picture of the person asking the question was wrong. It could be Big Bird asking her in the meme and still get the same point across. 
    I think the purpose of the meme is to make fun of her views and portray her like a  sterotypical millennial by saying "just pay for it." I can't imagine the picture of the interviewer was given any thought, and wasn't meant to mislead who she was speaking to because none of that matters in this context.

    That meme comments on her socialist (or at least perceived socialist) views. I don't see anything about it that can be tied to her race or gender. 
    Thank you. Everyone knows Unsungs positions on socialism and "commies"

    ***NOT EVERYBODY THAT DISAGREES IS A FUCKING RACIST, SEXIST, OR NAZI***

    for the love of sweet baby jesus
    And everybody also knows that poster’s positions on race and gender, so that’s not a compelling argument. 
    Do we now? What are his positions on race and sex? Educate me
    Can we stop debating on other people.

    This is getting silly now.

    Looking for thread integrity...
    She is essentially saying he is racist and sexist. Pretty strong accusations, i'm asking she prove her claims.

    If “fearing elimination of the white race” isn’t racist, I don’t know what is.

    I do like that she is starting organizing already though.

    OK so in my neck of the woods Amazon is coming...

    I'm not real excited about this.  It means that the area LIC, and everything else in the close vicinity is going to skyrocket in price...

    My plans for buying a house in Rockaway are all but shattered now...

    Ms Ocasio did weigh in on it.

    I will be putting in an application though...

    You're in LIC?
    I have relatives who have lived there since the 60's.
    It's  crazy to see how it's blown up in the last few years.

    No I'm on the island but i do a bunch of work there.

    If you offered me a building for free there 10 years ago I would have declined.  I can't believe what it has become.

    Rockaway is a ferry ride away and where I am originally from and where I wanted to buy property buy the damn hipsters have almost overrun that too..

    Hopefully they are successful in pushing Amazon out and forcing them to go to another city.  I know some midwestern cities ready with open arms. I really hope they organize and force these jobs elsewhere.

    Rockaway Taco has the best tacos in NYC. 

    We looked into buying a house there in 2012 so that dawn patrol would be much easier, but we chose to buy a tiny apartment in our Brooklyn neighborhood instead and only surf on the weekends.

    Then Sandy happened, and we felt like we dodged a bullet. (We were also looking at Long Beach and Red Hook, both of which were also severely impacted by the superstorm.)

    I get  tacos at Rockaway Brewings taco stand.  Good food there.

    I was looking in buying around 08/09 but never did and like you said, Sandy happened.
  • It’s funny,   A Democrat brings thousands of high paying jobs to a city area and people still complain.   Think of all the people who own properties in that area that just became millionaires!   Yes, some were already, but many were not,  why does everything have to be that if it helps 1 rich person it’s bad.  Does anyone realize anything that happens, the rich are going to get richer.  So, ignore the noise and ask yourself - will a lot of less rich be helped by this?   Governor Cuomo seems to think so.  Unless, that is, he’s in on it too!

    You get that people making $125k/yr pay a lot in taxes.  Right?  And what at least in theory can he done  with those tax dollars?     And what about the hardworking janitors and cleaning people and other service industry that will crop up around this new HQ?  Those jobs don’t count because there will be people making more?   (Not to mention all the construction jobs that just got created for the next 5-10 years).

    She’s in over her head.  If she wants to just pay for healthcare, this is how you do it.  Give people jobs with access to healthcare, and collect more taxes to pay for those that don’t.  She reminds me of my nephews and nieces BEFORE they went to college.  Interesting how their views changed once they started working and had real jobs. 

    And not to put words in his mouth, but this is what Jason P is referring to.  She should chase Amazon away so a nice midwestern town can reap the benefits.   

    So, to recount Queens’ newly minted Rep thinks - Jobs bad.  Paying for healthcare easy.  Yes, we get what we deserve indeed.
    Sorry. The world doesn't work the way you tell it to.
