For almost a year, Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez enjoying unmerited love from the media and her party.
Despite a total lack of experience and know-how, this attention swept the New Yorker into office. But after only a month in Congress, the love affair is over. The foolish representative helped tank a vital deal for New York, costing the city thousands of jobs and billions of dollars.
Now EVERYONE is turning on the liberal darling.
Most conservatives have been saying this from the very beginning. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, or AOC, is not fit to be a leader. I’m not sure she’s fit to tie her own shoes. The woman gained attention after beating 10-term congressman Joe Crowley for his seat in the House. She was able to bamboozle voters in New York by promising to abolish ICE. That trick was so successful, several other Democrats promised the same thing during the midterm primaries.
The left-wing media immediate started to portray AOC as some kind of reincarnated Barack Obama (yes, Barry’s not dead, but you get the idea). They championed her and her toxic ideas as the future of the Democratic Party and America. Patriots were not impressed. We’ve called out AOC for her total lack of leadership experience. We pointed out she had a shocking lack of a basic understanding of our economy.
We yelled from the rooftops that her empty socialist promises would never work. Or they would bankrupt our entire country. Conservative writers frequently pointed to AOC’s many gaffes and odd interviews–even moments where she seemed anti-Semitic–to warn voters to stay away.
Naturally, liberals did not listen.
Very soon after AOC took office, the Democrats started to worry. Despite being a newbie congresswoman, with no clout or influence, she was making wild and ridiculous claims. The roof was blown off her charade when she put forward the Green New Deal, a laughably bad proposal that was so poorly written, everyone mocked it.
Well, the laughter turned to tears, when this idiot woman killed a deal that would have brought billions to New York and thousands of jobs. Amazon was going to build a base in New York–a huge boon to the city. But hardcore socialist AOC helped drive the company away, with her radical intentions.
Now, more than a few people are outraged.
Job Creators Network, a nonpartisan organization founded by entrepreneurs like Home Depot co-founder Bernie Marcus, purchased a billboard in New York City slamming socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) for killing tens of thousands of jobs for New Yorkers that would have generated billions of dollars in economic activity…
“The freshman Democratic New York congresswoman has faced days of criticism from normally friendly media voices and fellow Democrats over her role in Amazon’s decision to pull back from building a $2.5 billion campus in the Long Island City neighborhood of Queens.” [Source: Daily Wire]
Amazon is one of the largest companies in the world. A significant presence in New York could have provided many, many jobs for a city that desperately needs them. Not to mention how it would turn around the economy in an embattled city.
But why did AOC contribute to the deal’s death? Because Amazon would have been given $3 billion in tax breaks. The city and state still would have benefitted. The jobs created would have been enough to help everyone. Income tax revenue would rise. Those employed would have invested back into the local economy.
It would have been a win-win for the city. Any politician would have loved to brag about getting Amazon. AOC? She stupidly killed the deal because she didn’t want them getting a tax break. Apparently, she doesn’t understand how money works.
After getting roasted by just about everyone, she ranted, proving she’s even dumber than we thought.
“I’ve been telling @AOC critics that she is smart, but what do I say when she says nonsense like ‘we could invest those $3 billion in [@amazon tax breaks] in our district. We could hire more teachers. We can fix our subways, we can put a lot of people to work for that money,'” Engquist tweeted. [Source: Daily Wire]
Yeah, she ain’t smart. She’s very, very stupid. She killed a deal. Now New York won’t have the money to fix anything. They’ve lost 25,000 jobs.
We say elections have consequences. Maybe voters will learn to avoid con artists like AOC in the future. I know New Yorkers will.
