“Fox & Friends” co-host Ainsley Earhardt and “Daily Caller “associate editor Virginia Kruta worried aloud about Americans having universal health care and education.
Kruta recalled how she recently attended a rally in St. Louis for Democratic candidate Cori Bush at which New York Democratic candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez spoke.
Kruta said she was “uncomfortable”:
[Ocasio-Cortez and Bush] talk about things that everybody wants, especially if you’re a parent — they talk about education for your kids, health care for your kids. Things that you want.
Kruta worried aloud about Americans paying for other Americans to be healthy and educated:
If you’re not really paying attention to how they’re going to pay for it, or the rest of that, it’s easy to fall into that trap and say, “my kids deserve this, and maybe the government should be responsible for helping me with that.”
Earhardt jumped in with her deep concern about that “message”:
As a conservative, when you’re sitting in that audience or standing in that audience, and you’re listening to that message, how did it make you feel? Were you angry? Were you more drawn to that?
Kruta was upset that people wanted to change the country’s failed for-profit polices on health care and education:
I was mostly uncomfortable, because I was surrounded by a group of people who were talking about how they had gotten involved because they were tired of being angry all the time. It seems like so much effort to be angry about everything, instead of to focus on what you could do to change it.
RealClearPolitics notes how Americans actually support universal health care:
Out of 24 swing-district Democratic candidates who’ve gotten through the primary process, 17 of them, 70 percent, support Medicare for All or a universal government-run health care plan as part of a fix to the Affordable Care Act.
