AOC Has Meltdown on Congressional Floor Over Stimulus Bill

AOC Has Meltdown on Congressional Floor Over Stimulus Bill


If she weren’t a politician with power, it’d almost be hilarious to see Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s rants.

Yesterday on the House floor, AOC went into a full-blown tamper tantrum, claiming the latest $484 billion stimulus bill is “too small.”

This just after Congress passed a stimulus bill in excess of $2 trillion dollars last month!

What would be enough? Another trillion? Two trillion? At some point we have to be concerned about the massive debt our country is accumulating.

The New York representative ended up being the only Democrat to vote against the bill.

Fox News reports on AOC’s decision to vote “nay” on the latest stimulus bill:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., defended her “nay” vote during the House’s largely bipartisan passage of a $484 billion coronavirus relief package on Thursday, calling it “too small.”

The progressive lawmaker — whose state has been ravaged by the coronavirus, with the highest numbers of infections and deaths in the country — said the bill left out any real aid for Americans struggling to pay rent or purchase necessities including food after being left jobless or stranded due to the virus.

That, compounded with the lack of a timeline for another vote on additional aid, made her the single Democrat in the House to vote against the bill, she said.

“My concern is that we are giving away the farm,” Ocasio-Cortez told reporters after the vote. “I cannot go back to my communities and tell them to just wait for CARES four because we have now passed three, four pieces of legislation that’s related to coronavirus. And every time it’s the next one, the next one, the next one, and my constituents are dying.”

What are some of AOC's disillusioned ideas?

Send every American a $2,000 check each month for at least six months!

Suspend rent and mortgage payments for at least a year!

And, her latest idea released just a few days ago?

Don't go back to work, boycott it!

The New York Post details AOC's insane idea to have workers boycott work:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) argued Wednesday that many Americans should protest economic insecurity by refusing to work after coronavirus-related restrictions are lifted.

“When we talk about this idea of reopening society, you know, only in America does the president — when the president tweets about liberation — does he mean go back to work. When we have this discussion about going back or reopening, I think a lot people should just say ‘no’ — we’re not going back to that,” she said.

“We’re not going back to working 70-hour weeks just so that we could put food on the table and not even feel any sort of semblance of security in our lives.”

Her comments came during an interview with Vice TV host Anand Giridharadas, who famously speculated that President Trump’s sexual insecurity was “literally threatening to annihilate the planet.”

The interview with Ocasio-Cortez is set to air Wednesday night.
