Hmmm…. Why didn’t she just buy Obamacare?

Ocasio-Cortez’s was working as a waitress and bartender when she decided to run for Congress. Like many millennials, she had student loans to pay and no health insurance. “When you can’t have healthcare, that is not dignified,” she says. https://t.co/B9SS8WHcW3 pic.twitter.com/dLUcCHJ4CH
