AOC Tries To Mock GOP, Misses And Hits Pelosi Instead: ‘We need to pay people to stay home’


Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez offered a novel solution to the ongoing crisis by saying that people should be paid to stay home.

“To get the virus under control, we need to pay people to stay home,” the New York Congresswoman said.

“Republicans are mad at this when they literally just voted to do just this in March. The reason they’re opposed to it now is because last time they got a Wall Street bailout and this time all that’s left is helping working people, the disabled, the poor, etc,” she said.

“30 million people in this country are at risk of eviction,” she said earlier. “Millions of people are unemployed or underemployed from cut-back hours. The economy is not the stock market.”

“We are not doing fine. People need help in red states and blue, & our job is to help everyone. This is basic.”

During a recent virtual town hall she said, “I’ve championed monthly stimulus checks to folks in the country and everyone that needs it since the pandemic started. I was really, really hoping that we were going to be able to cut a deal before the election.”

She doubled down earlier writing, “Can we please get people stimulus checks and mortgage relief and rent forgiveness and small business support and free testing and hazard pay and healthcare for the uninsured (& underinsured) in the middle of a pandemic or is that too socialist too?”

She needs to talk to Nancy Pelosi to be honest after all it was Pelosi and the Dems who approved the same stimulus package she is complaining about.

The swamp of which AOC is a part of despite her denials gave Wall Street basically unlimited leverage while giving main street a short term deal.

Same as it ever was and AOC has a lot of power and a huge megaphone so she can only be mad at herself.

Now AOC may not have technically voted for it but what the swamp does when they want to pass a piece of garbage and don’t want their names on it is to use tricks like “unrecorded voice votes” as they did with the big stimulus.

“The House passed the bill on March 27 by a near-unanimous, unrecorded voice vote.”
