The Five reacted to New York congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez echoing Sen. Bernie Sanders' (I-Vt.) call for 'Medicare for All.'

Ocasio-Cortez, a heavy favorite to win against opponent Prof. Anthony Pappas (R-Queens) in November, has been running on the idea prior to and after her primary win against House Democratic Caucus Chair Joe Crowley (D-N.Y.).

Dana Perino cited a recent Mercatus report that said Medicare for All would cost $32.6 trillion over 10 years, and that doubling tax revenue to the government would not pay for it.

"Sanders has not done cost analysis of his bill," Dana Perino said, listing 15 other Democratic senators who signed onto the 2017 plan without doing analyses themselves.

Senators Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island, Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin, Cory Booker of New Jersey, Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut, Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, Tom Udall and Martin Heinrich of New Mexico, Mazie Hirono and Brian Schatz of Hawaii, Pat Leahy of Vermont, Ed Markey of Massachusetts, Jeff Merkley of Oregon and Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire all joined Sanders' plan. 

Charlie Hurt said none of those Democrats have looked at the real "moral issue" at hand, which is "the idea that people are perfectly OK with taking things from people who work and giving them to people who don't work."

Hurt said that schoolchildren today are not learning the importance of "each according to his ability" versus "each according to his need."

"They come [saying] 'oh, socialism sounds great'," Hurt said.
