Ocasio-Cortez Just Met Her Match — Gets WORST News of Her Political Career

H/T Flag and Cross.com.

Alexandria Occasional-Cortex might be out of a job in Congress come 2020.

You can’t take on the entrenched DemocRats and not expect to be tossed out on your head.

New York Democrat Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just potentially received the worst news of her young political career.

Here’s why…

The man who started the #WalkAway movement just announced something that should have New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez shaking in terror.

 

Brandon Straka, a gay man who used to be a Democrat until he noticed how the Party divides and vilifies groups, has been an influential voice in freeing Democrat minorities from their chains.

[…]

That is why his announcement on Wednesday that he is seriously considering running against Ocasio-Cortez is a major blow to the Democrats.

Not a joke. I never wanted a career in politics. But I would consider this because I’m probably the only NYer who could go up against her and stop this crazy fringe leftist train from further infiltrating our government and reverse its course.

Democrats are known for not going against one another.

Groupthink is commonplace.

That’s what makes this story so wild.

Apparently, Dems are so tired of freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez that they are looking to push her out in 2020.

They may find someone who will be willing to primary AOC.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) has infuriated colleagues by aligning with a progressive outside group that’s threatening to primary entrenched Democrats. Now some of those lawmakers are turning the tables on her and are discussing recruiting a primary challenger to run against the social media sensation.

At least one House Democrat has been privately urging members of the New York delegation to recruit a local politician from the Bronx or Queens to challenge Ocasio-Cortez.

“What I have recommended to the New York delegation is that you find her a primary opponent and make her a one-term congressperson,” the Democratic lawmaker, who requested anonymity, told The Hill. “You’ve got numerous council people and state legislators who’ve been waiting 20 years for that seat. I’m sure they can find numerous people who want that seat in that district.”

The problem now, though, is that AOC has the name recognition. Even more unfortunate is how popular Democrat socialism has become in America.

Ocasio-Cortez believes President Trump is a racist.

Ocasio-Cortez: “The president certainly didn’t invent racism, but he’s certainly given a voice to it and expanded it and created a platform for those things.”

When you look at the words that he uses, which are historic dog whistles of white supremacy. When you look at how he reacted to the Charlottesville incident, where neo-Nazis murdered a woman, versus how he manufactures crises like immigrants seeking legal refuge on our borders, it’s, it’s night and day.

Ocasio-Cortez wants to be known as a “radical.” She made that clear in her “60 Minutes” interview.

AOC: “You know, you look at our tax rates back in the ’60s and when you have a progressive tax rate system, your tax rate, you know, let’s say, from zero to $75,000 may be ten percent or 15 percent, et cetera. But once you get to, like, the tippy tops, on your 10 millionth dollar, sometimes you see tax rates as high as 60 or 70 percent. That doesn’t mean all $10 million are taxed at an extremely high rate, but it means that as you climb up this ladder you should be contributing more.

WATCH:

 

 

It is going to be a long two years covering Alexandria.

She’s young. She has ideas.

Unfortunately, she’s too young to understand that her ideas are ridiculous.

Alexandria claims the Pentagon lost $21 trillion.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

@AOC

$21 TRILLION of Pentagon financial transactions “could not be traced, documented, or explained.”

$21T in Pentagon accounting errors. Medicare for All costs ~$32T.

That means 66% of Medicare for All could have been funded already by the Pentagon.

And that’s before our premiums.

There’s a huge problem with AOC’s math:

@Brian_Riedl

Wow. You claim $21 Trillion in Pentagon Waste? The entire Pentagon budget from 1789-2018 has totaled $18 trillion,

Come on, This is embarrassing.

D’OH!

The numbers just don’t add up, Alexandria.

Just like a Democrat Socialist, isn’t it? Pulling money from out of thin air!

@jbarro

This is a wild misinterpretation of the Nation article. A key point of the article is these reported amounts do not reflect the Pentagon’s actual spending behavior.

Her one tweet about $5.7 billion for the border wall might just be the joke of the year, considering all the sudden she cares how the government spends money.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

@AOC

And just like that, GOP discovers $5.7 billion for a wall.

$5.7 billion

What if we instead added $5.7B in teacher pay?
Or replacing water pipes?
Or college tuition/prescription refill subsidies?
Or green jobs?

But notice how no one’s asking the GOP how they’re paying for it.

BREAKING: The House has passed a short-term spending bill that includes the $5.7 billion Trump requested for border security.https://www.axios.com/house-passes-short-term-funding-bill-5-billion-border-wall-3d3993d1-aebe-4b94-96b4-7e7356b5f2f5.html?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=organic&utm_content=1100

Too funny.

In case AOC wasn’t clear, she thinks it’s wasteful to spend taxpayer dollars protecting Americans.

Does she really think a whopping $5 billion is a lot, compared to how much she wants to spend?
