Ocasio-Cortez, 29, immediately transitioned into defensive posture.
"No one asks how we're gonna pay for this Space Force," she told Cooper. "No one asked how we paid for a $2 trillion tax cut."
"We only ask how we pay for it on issues of housing, health care, and education," she continued. "How do we pay for it? With the same exact mechanisms that we pay for military increases for this Space Force, for all of these ambitious policies."
Noting that some Democrats, such as Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.), are concerned about the impact socialist lawmakers will have on the Democratic Party's future — since their "unrealistic" policies alienate a majority of the country in terms of support — Cooper pushed the issue further.

"How to pay for it," Cooper shot back.
