Democratic socialist and House candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Wednesday touted Medicare for all as a way to save on funeral expenses, instead of spending on “unlimited war.”

During an interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo, Ms. Ocasio-Cortez railed against talking about “sticker shock” on a universal Medicare plan but not the existing health care system.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Americans have the sticker shock of health care as it is,” said Ms. Ocasio-Cortez, who won her Democratic primary in New York. “And what we’re also not talking about is why aren’t we incorporating the cost of all the funeral expenses of those who die because they can’t afford access to health care? That is part of the cost of our system. “

Ms. Ocasio-Cortez didn’t lay out a specific plan detailing where the funds for Medicare for all would come from but criticized spending on war and tax cuts. She argued that no one asked the Republicans how they’d pay for it.
