Junior Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, a former bartender whose past financial experience most likely included zeroing out the cash register at the end of her shift is now front in center in America’s financial decisions.
What is frightening is that some people are actually listening to her.
This week, AOC, still reeling from her putdown by Nancy Pelosi, who forced her to vote “present” instead of no on the Israeli Iron Dome funding has engaged in a bizarre form of political negotiating on Capitol Hill. AOC admitted she sold her values for political bargaining in this interview, now regretting her decision to cast a “present” vote.
After facing an uphill battle to pass Joe Biden’s $3.5 trillion spending bill, Cortez said, “Some people get nothing.”
“I’m from the Bronx. When you tell me something is better than nothing, what I hear isn’t something for you better?” she said. “Why don’t you accept nothing so I can get something? That’s what’s actually being said.”
One thing is certain, Sandy Cortez is not the one getting “nothing” in America. Check out her posh D.C. apartment paid for by the families squeezed into one-room tenements up in the Bronx.
