Ocasio-Cortez Hit Hard by Own Constituents Over Amazon Remarks

AOC is back in the headlines, unsurprisingly, this time as her constituents in New York City rebuke her harshly.

Alexandria Ocasio Cortez

If there is one thing that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is good at, it’s staying in the headlines.

The 28 year 0ld bartender-turned-Congresswoman has been a fixture for the mainstream media thanks in no small part to the dedicated anti-AOC meme-makers and Twitter personalities.  Her attitude is often seen as precocious, if not a bit condescending as well, something that democrats have latched onto in making her one of the media’s mavens.

Now, however, her tough talk regarding Amazon.com, and the company’s decision to cancel plans for a headquarters in New York City, have even her own constituents crying foul.

According to a new Siena College poll, 58 percent of voters in her district, which covers parts of the Bronx and Queens, actually support the now-abandoned and controversial deal that would have brought the tech giant to Long Island City in return for $3 billion in state and local subsidies.

The freshman congresswoman, who unseated a 10-term Democratic incumbent, was one of several elected officials pushing back on Amazon’s planned expansion pointing at the secrecy of the deal itself, the lack of public input and the potential for gentrification and displacement resulting from 25,000 new highly paid tech workers in the area.

But there’s more…

In addition, 57 percent of those polled said it was “bad for New York” that the Jeff Bezos-led company canceled the project in February following opposition from some elected officials, labor groups, local residents and community activists.

The poll indicated that those who agreed with AOC were in the minority at around 37%.

VIDEO: Conservatives Form Their Own ‘Squad’ To Do Battle Against Socialism; ‘This Is Not Your Grandfather’s GOP Anymore’

Published

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard all about a group of four freshmen Democratic Party women who have banded together in Congress to fight for socialistic policies. This group of individuals has been labeled the “Squad” and features Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib. Well, four female conservative congressional candidates are forming their own version of the “Squad” to help fight against the socialism these other ladies are doing their best to push on the American people. Here’s more on this from Fox News: In a previous interview on “Fox & Friends,” Alabama congressional candidate Jessica Taylor called for a new generation of conservatives to counteract the ideology of Democratic socialists like Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar. Then, in a campaign video for her candidacy, Taylor said that she was “sick of arrogant socialists like AOC (Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez), who’ve never even run a lemonade stand, trying to tell us how to live in Alabama and that more government is the answer.” On Thursday, Taylor joined “Fox & Friends” once again with a newly formed “conservative squad,” made up of Minnesota congressional candidate Michelle Fischbach, South Carolina congressional candidate Nancy Mace, and Texas congressional candidate Beth Van Duyne. “This is about bringing the conservative message to the people of the United States,” said Fischbach. “So that people understand that we’re looking at do-nothing Democrats. They are obsessing about impeachment and not really doing anything for the people of the United States anymore.” Mace went on to say that their initiative is all about the American dream. “The Democrats, they have taken a sharp left turn under the influence of the socialist squad. And, you look at us and this is socialism versus the American values of freedom and job creation. And, we all understand…

Nonpartisan Analysis Weighs In On Elizabeth Warren’s Wealth Tax Math, Says It Doesn’t Add Up

Published

on

An academic, nonpartisan study has concluded that the math behind Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s wealth tax and found that something’s a bit off about the numbers. According to the new findings, the “wealth tax” on America’s wealthiest folks will actually bring in $1 trillion less than what Warren estimates. Warren says the wealth tax would be a big help in funding her massive progressive policies such as the universal child care, free tuition at public universities, and the big one, “Medicare-for-all” and other programs. The plan would put a two percent tax on individuals worth $50 million or more and a six percent tax on those worth more than $1 billion. Here’s more from Fox News: A University of Pennsylvania Penn Wharton Budget Model – which offers nonpartisan analysis of public policy proposals – estimates, though, that Warren’s tax would raise between $2.3 trillion to $2.7 trillion over a decade. That’s as much as $1.4 trillion less than the Warren campaign’s estimates. The analysis was released on Thursday. It also concludes that the new taxes would cause the economy to contract between 0.9 percent and 2.1 percent by 2050 — depending on how the new revenue is spent. The model says the new tax would reduce “private capital formation” enough to drive the U.S. economy’s average wage down between 0.9 percent and 2.3 percent, even affecting households not rich enough to qualify for the tax. Warren’s campaign disputed the findings. “This analysis does not study Elizabeth’s actual plans — it does not account for the strong anti-evasion measures in her wealth tax and does not even attempt to analyze the specific investments Elizabeth is committed to making with the wealth tax revenue,” Warren campaign spokesperson Saloni Sharma said in a statement to Fox News. “This is an analysis…
