Mark Cuban Schools AOC With Simple Money Lesson And She’d Be Wise To Listen Up


Mark Cuban just put Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in her place and she would be wise to listen to his wise words.

Look, energy and enthusiasm are great attributes for AOC, but if she does not have requisite knowledge her position demands, things could go south quickly.

She has a following, one that is growing, and they eat up her simple soundbite solutions to problems. But she knows not of what she speaks, as Cuban reminded her.


Substance must replace style in American politics for us to continue to move forward and lead the world.

From WCSI: Mark Cuban has brushed off Alexandria-Ocasio Cortez’s recent claims about being able to wipe out student debt.

The billionaire owner of the Dallas Mavericks was responding to the Democratic representative’s suggestion that wiping out all student loan debts in the country would be cheaper than President Trump’s tax cuts.

“Cost of the GOP Tax Scam for the rich: $1.8-2.3 Trillion. Cost of forgiving all student loans in America: $1.5 Trillion. Clearly where there’s a will, there’s a way.

“When people say that there isn’t “enough” to do these things, what they mean is they don’t *want* to do them,” the Democratic star tweeted on Wednesday night.

Cuban cried foul on the claim Thursday, saying Ocasio-Cortez hadn’t taken into account one key factor.

“Unfortunately, if you just forgive loans without resolving why tuition is high in the first place, you have given schools carte blanche to raise tuition. Why wouldn’t they raise tuition if future loans will be forgiven too?” he tweeted.

“The better solution is to offer means-tested student loan repayments across the board and cap future loans per family, eliminating the easy money that leads to tuition increases.”

Ocasio-Cortez has backed tuition-free public college and the cancellation of all student loan debt.

Cuban’s comments came after he refused earlier this month to rule out entering the 2020 presidential race.

“I’m not ruling it out,” Cuban told Fox News via email. “But the tea leaves would have to align perfectly.”

The comments came after the “Shark Tank” star spoke to the New York Daily News following the Mavs game against the Brooklyn Nets.
