It is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortezs glory and burden that she actually believes all the slogans that progressives mouth. She hasnt yet realized that the Democratic Party coalition has a senior partner, of the ultra-wealthy corporate elite that provides campaign funding and institutional support, and a junior partner, the poor and minorities, the electoral cannon fodder who provide votes and (lately) mobs, and get freebies from the government in return. The junior partners get noisy public support (aka, lip service) from the Dem politicians, but the senior partners get the goodies the regulations, subsidies, and tax breaks mostly in private.

Look, half the American population has below-average IQs. This 50% deserves to be in Congress also and Alexandria fits the bill perfectly.
But she has a degree in economics and has met with a Nobel economist!
They will either pull her into line or it will be a lot of fun.
Can she really be that dumb? Good grief, she's an econ major from Boston University yet appears to have the economic IQ of a bag of hammers. If I were BU, I'd revoke her degree, as she clearly does not understand economics.
It may be past time to call in Mr. Clayton and Mr. Sherman.
Our new masters... Bezos...
Hes positioning his HA and people near DC and K Street for just that reason. Hes a serpent, and no patriot.
Wow, that’s going to give me nightmares.
My favorite quote of hers: “If you can’t afford something just pay for it so you can have it” Awesome advice! All this time I could have had a private jet and a 100 room mansion. All I had to do is pay for it and I can have it.
KEY POINT, right there.
She just hasnt been paid yet. Once she gets her first go along check, shell re-focus to pushing her unicorn world on the rest of us for our own good.
Boston University should disband their economics department. Shes regurgitating what she learned there!
Butt, butt, butt........Just pay for it. How hard is that? So, I heard something yesterday about the new amazon hq in that the jobs it would bring would be around $100k+. And this mensa candidate and her new constituents are bitching about tax breaks for bezos. Some of those jobs could go to the locals don’t ya think? Fidiots. So, NYC or Alexandria Va.
Her ignorance is a reflection on the teachers and all the garbage they put into her head. As you may recall the old saying “Garbage in, garbage out” What else was there to be expected?
She’s an Idyat and is in way over her head
But once you get past the shock of it all, she’s entertaining.
1. She disrespects Amazon by questioning the huge government subsidies.
2. The Washington Post turns on her like a pack of rabid wolves.
3. Entertainment for us.
I would hope BEFORE the new Congress is sworn in that the Republicans rant loud and clear about a new member who is crying the blues about not being able to afford an apartment in DC on a congressional annual salary of $174,000. Make the PEOPLE understand just what a phony person they elected to serve them in the House of Representatives who ran on FREE EVERYTHING and NOW would like to have people help her out.
Do it OUTSIDE a session as I’m sure they aren’t allowed to attack another member on the floor of the House but a big loud noise needs to be made about it!
She must have family and apparently they aren’t willing to help her as they probably don’t believe the nonsense she spouts and if true, they’re smarter than the thing they raised!
Better bring a warm sleeping bag as you may have to sleep in the park...
Also she’s demanding free electoral college for all.
