Nine seventy LA Audio soundbites. Are from Alexander off Cape Cod Yes She was on the daily, show which is a a pseudo comedy show on these pseudo comedy central network on Thursday. Night And she was talking about Medicare for everybody Well everything forever And that she had talks to Nobel prize economic winners and that she had it figured out how are we going to pay for everything she intensity now as you? Listen, to this And I apologize, if you've heard it but the one thing you haven't heard is my take the really important thing about this to understand is this woman has a degree in economics from Boston University Not Boston College Boston University Boston, University thirty years ago twenty five years, ago had a great president his name with John Silber.

Thirty years ago on what's. Wrong with, American public education what students are being taught more importantly what they're not being taught Alexander okay seal Cortes is a graduate from Boston you she has a degree in economics, and it's clear she doesn't know. Anything and if this level this, degree of complete economic ignorance can get you, a degree in economics from a major American University then something is drastically terribly wrong.

Everyone and all, your other ideas and this is an excellent excellent question. And in fact. There's a lot of back of the. Envelope stuff based on our values so for example I sat down with a Nobel prize economist. Last week I can't prove I can, say that it's really weird But one of the things that, we saw is if people pay. Their fair share if.
