EconomicPolicyJournal.com: AOC Wants Biden to Boost Infrastructure Spending to $10 Trillion

Posted by M. C. on April 2, 2021

Maddow must have been short on time because she did not get a chance to ask AOC how she would pay for a $10 trillion program, or ask her about the economic distortions government programs cause or ask her why she wants to promote standard of living lowering unions.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow that President Biden’s $2.25 trillion infrastructure package is  “encouraging.”

However, she added that she has “serious concerns that it’s not enough.” 

AOC said that the U.S. could “realistically need $10 trillion over 10 years.”

“I know that may by an eye-popping figure for some people, but we need to understand that we are in a devastating economic moment. Millions of people in the United States are unemployed. We have a truly crippled health care system and a planetary crisis on our hands, and we’re the wealthiest nation in the history of the world. So we can do $10 trillion,” she told Maddow. 

And here is the part where Rep. Ocasio-Cortez mentions the 10 trillion number that caught @Lawrence ‘s attention.

We’ll have the full @AOC interview published later tonight. pic.twitter.com/y7ZXNr9sht— Maddow Blog (@MaddowBlog) April 1, 2021
