Her tweet, "$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. And that’s before our premiums." Um, that was 17-year of spent money, that just wasn't accounted for properly (not that it wasn't spent and is sitting in an account somewhere for her to loot). And all of those mistakes, couldn't pay for 2/3rds of the low-ball estimate, for the first decade of Medicare-for-all, assuming it comes in on-budget (like that would happen).

It's not that she's stupid -- we all make mistakes. But many of us are smart enough to know when to shut up, or research before we speak. Not her.
