Secret Service shares photo of the time George H.W. Bush shaved his head for agent’s son with leukemia

The Washington Post “fact checker” column awarded Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) “four Pinocchios” on Tuesday after she said in a tweet that a “$21 trillion mistake” by the Pentagon could have paid for about two-thirds the cost of a Medicare for all bill.

“$21 TRILLION of Pentagon financial transactions ‘could not be traced, documented, or explained.’ $21T in Pentagon accounting errors. Medicare for All costs ~$32T. That means 66% of Medicare for All could have been funded already by the Pentagon,” she wrote to her 1.46 million followers.

The column said the tweet was wrong on a couple of counts.

First, it said it made an apples and oranges comparison, in that the $32 trillion estimated to pay for providing Medicare to all citizens was over 10 years, while the errors in Pentagon spending highlighted by the future lawmaker were over 17 years.
