Republican Congressman Steve Scalise (LA) was nearly murdered by deranged left-wing activist James Hodgkinson in June 2017.
If a Democrat representative had been shot in the Trump era, we’d be talking about it to this day.
Scalise sent a tweet calling out Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) for wanting to raise taxes to 70%.
Republicans: Let Americans keep more of their own hard-earned money
Democrats: Take away 70% of your income and give it to leftist fantasy programs https://t.co/NxJPSCqvrt

You’re the GOP Minority Whip. How do you not know how marginal tax rates work?
Oh that’s right, almost forgot: GOP works for the corporate CEOs showering themselves in multi-million💰bonuses; not the actual working people whose wages + healthcare they’re ripping off for profit. https://t.co/R1YIng2Ok1

Scalise sent another tweet that combined some responses from AOC’s “radical” supporters:

Her supporters showed their true colors…
If only James T. Hodgkinson had better aim 🤷♂️

Now, I would NEVER say it was a shame that James Hodgkinson didn't have better aim. That would just be a terrible thing to say. That being said…………………

There’s a lot Ocasio-Cortez still has to learn, especially about America.
Check out this message she sent, implying that she, herself, is an “American Revolutionary.”

The world the British colonists inherited was ruled by kings, hereditary aristocrats, and wealthy gentlemen. But in the year 1776, Americans decided to change that world. They would do without a king or aristocrats. They would create a new government based solely on “the people.”
But who would really count as “the people,” and how would it all work? Should wealthy and educated gentlemen still dominate the government? Should a new, representative form of government truly represent the interests and views of common men and women? How should those people participate to make their voices heard?
Wait until you hear about their perspective on limited government and individual rights! https://t.co/MytPtz2jFr

Was this before or after they created the 3 chambers of government? https://t.co/lOZRYyq9z5

You must not k ow history. The revolution was about taxation. The policies you want to enact will place crippling taxes on us all.

When people look back 50 years from now are they going to say George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Barack Obama, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez were all crucial to America’s development over the centuries?
Just two of those people will be credited, the other two forgotten.
Very few events in history should be compared to the Holocaust, right?
From Daily Caller:
New York Democratic Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Sunday compared members of the migrant caravan attempting to enter the United States to Jews fleeing Nazi Germany during the Holocaust.
Heck, these law-breaking migrants were caught on camera throwing rocks at cops.

Ocasio-Cortez claims “Republican commentators” are “stalking” her and “doctoring” her live streams.
Cognitive dissonance is Republican commentators stalking, doctoring, + editing my casual livestreams out of context in order to sow doubt in my intelligence, all while blindly supporting a man who thinks our greatest defense against forest fires is: A Rakehttps://t.co/RsfyPT6rGy

Yes, Alexandria is delusional.
The only reason she’s being talked about so much is because she doesn’t know what she’s talking about.
Check out this hilarious montage of Ocasio-Cortez proving she doesn’t know much:
Ocasio-Cortez has a question about election day and Columbus Day she can’t seem to figure out on her own.
Not only is it ridiculous, but conservatives took notice.
See her tweet:
How is Columbus Day a holiday but Election Day not?
— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) November 18, 2018
Christopher Columbus discovered America; Erica Election did not.

I'm sure you're going to be a joy to work with in Congress.

Please give your mouth a break. Dear God!

If only this were part of her campaign ad….. she wouldn’t have been voted in as an elected official 🤦🏻♀️

Why do you need Election Day to be a holiday?
— EC (@EdnaV4) November 18, 2018
10 days on the job and you are already looking to manufacture more days off.

I've voted AND worked every voting day since I was 18! Job never stopped me from voting!

How come socialism has never worked yet you still want to try it ? These are the questions we should be asking.

By the looks of the picture below, she’s not making friends right off the bat.
Pic of the year?

Alexandria is apparently looking for attention, sending what was clearly a bold-faced lie on Twitter.
People keep giving me directions to the spouse and intern events instead of the ones for members of Congress 🤦🏽♀️
— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) November 14, 2018
What’s the problem?
Republican consultant Arthur Schwartz has the answer:
Ocasio-Cortez said that she couldn’t afford to land an apartment in DC until her Congressional paycheck kicked in.
“I have three months without a salary before I’m a member of Congress. So, how do I get an apartment? Those little things are very real.“
From Daily Wire:
As Fox News reports, “Records show she has more than enough to plunk down on an apartment in the U.S. capital.” Fox News adds that Ocasio-Cortez “reported having between $15,001 and $50,000 in her checking account as of the end of April 2018, according to a Financial Disclosure Report she submitted to the clerk of the U.S. House of Representatives. The financial disclosure also reveals that she has an investment account valued between $1,001 and $15,000.”
That minimum of $15,000 that Ocasio-Cortez had in the bank is 15 times the amount 57% of average Americans had in their savings, as USA Today reported in May 2018. USA Today stated, “The average American has less than $4,000 in savings, while 57% of U.S. adults have less than $1,000 to their names.”
Like all elected members of Congress, Ocasio-Cortez will earn $174,000 annually.
