GOP Rep. Elise Stefanik Gets Dragged For Not Understanding Medicare
If you criticize socialism, it helps to know what socialism is.
But that doesn't seem to be the case with Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.), Who despite graduating from Harvard in 2006 with a government degree, has no idea about socialism.
The evidence comes in the form of a tweet she posted on Friday in response to the 56th anniversary of the day President Lyndon B. Johnson signed a measure to create Medicare and Medicaid:
While Stefanik clearly wanted her tweet to own these damn liberals, there was a big problem: Medicare and Medicaid (as well as Social Security) - which Stefanik supports - are all government programs that fit the basic definition of socialism.
So Stefanik either failed on that essay question at Harvard or just ignored facts in order to own these damn liberals.
HuffPost contacted the Congressman's office, but no one replied immediately.
However, many Twitter users were happy to train Stefanik about their apparent ignorance of what socialism is and what isn't.
Stefanik was also dragged along by conservatives for the clueless tweet.
But Stefan's tweet received support from an unlikely source: MP Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Who gave advice on how to "best own the socialists".
