Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) continues her streak of saying just abjectly stupid crap. She’s a Democrat, which already made this a default setting. It doesn’t help that she also rests on the far left of this party. She was catapulted to fame by knocking off Rep. Joe Crowley, a top Democrat who would have probably mounted a legitimate challenge to Nancy Pelosi’s speakership bid. Some have mocked her for not having enough money to pay for a D.C. apartment prior to her six-figure congressional salary kicking in next year. Other times, it’s making jabs about how she dresses. That’s cheap. It makes her a sympathetic figure. We don’t want to make that happen. She thinks Medicare for All will be paid for because…you just pay for it. She thinks the Senate, House, and presidency are the three branches of government. Oh, and that we’re actually shaking in our boots due to her election win, or something. Let’s not forget that she thinks members of Congress sign bills into law. Now, she thinks her primary win over Crowley is akin to the moon landing:
Democratic socialist and Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) compared her election victory to historic events in American history like the moon landing and the civil rights movement during a press conference about a “Green New Deal.”
“We’ve dug deep, and we’ve done what we thought was impossible. We went to the moon. We electrified the nation. We established civil rights. We enfranchised the country,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “We dig deep, and we did it. We did it when no one else thought that we could. That’s what we did when so many of us won an election this year. That’s what so many of us did.”
I’m fine being called a bull in a china shop, because politics that answers to special interests more than the American people *should* be disrupted.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@Ocasio2018) November 23, 2018
Also, the idea that the same folks who bow to Trump are clutching their pearls is laughable.
Good. That’s how they should feel. https://t.co/6obfnT7fvf
A new green deal; is that a very fancy word for economy killer? Before Ocasio-Cortez discovers that this agenda has zero chance if succeeding, she will learn that she’s just a small fish in a big pond. She’s going to make noise, but nothing much else. The GOP Senate will kill any Democratic job-killing initiatives, especially this green agenda. She will also show us how we will be able to pay for it because her health care action item has a huge price tag that soars into the trillions and not even the DNC CEO has an answer for how they will be able to pay for it.
