Ocasio-Cortez Says Democrat Party Is A ‘Center-Conservative Party’ — Not A ‘Left Party’

Yes, she actually said these words…

Of all the absolutely ridiculous thoughts that come from the lips of freshman Democrat Socialist lawmaker Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY), this sentence might just take the cake. Actually, it might just take the entire bakery.

It’s as if AOC literally said the sun is the moon and the moon doesn’t exist. It is that stunning and blatantly ignorant. You know, it’s almost as if AOC legitimately has no clue about what she speaks.

I wonder how liberals will feel about this. See for yourself, via Washington Examiner:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said the Democratic Party leans to the right of the political center.

She said, “We don’t have a left party in the United States. The Democratic Party is not a left party. The Democratic Party is a center or center-conservative party.

AOC added, “We can’t even get a floor vote on Medicare for All, not even a floor vote that gets voted down. So, this is not a left party. There are a lot of true believers that we can ‘capitalism’ our way out of poverty in the Democratic Party. If anything, that’s probably the majority.

Reactions:

President Ocasio-Cortez, anyone?

Apparently, the far-left radical thinks about the idea. Could there be anything scarier for America?

During a podcast interview, AOC admitted she thinks about running for POTUS “every once in a while.”

AOC spoke with Yahoo! News’ Skullduggery podcast Sunday about a variety of issues, and the conversation eventually turned to her thoughts on the 2020 election and her own sights for higher office.

AOC: “I don’t know, I really don’t know,” the freshman congresswoman said of her next steps in politics. “I think about it every once in a while but […] this is pretty hard already.

President Trump Pushes For Massive $2 Trillion Infrastructure Bill To Be ‘Phase 4’ Coronavirus Relief Package

Published

on

President Trump is advocating for Congress to adopt what he callas a “very big and bold” infrastructure investment in future legislation to help fight against the coronavirus, which is currently making thousands of people seriously ill all across the country. The president advocated for a $2 trillion addition to the congressional economic relief bills that are to help workers and businesses who are suffering during this unprecedented pandemic. Trump has stated that he hopes to stimulate employment through a number of federal programs. Here’s more from Washington Examiner: “With interest rates for the United States being at ZERO, this is the time to do our decades long awaited Infrastructure Bill. It should be VERY BIG & BOLD, Two Trillion Dollars, and be focused solely on jobs and rebuilding the once great infrastructure of our Country! Phase 4,” Trump tweeted. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1245000074167541761 Before the historic relief package was passed last week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said lawmakers must begin drafting a fourth relief package to deal with the coronavirus pandemic, arguing that the bill that was making its way through Congress was insufficient to address the needs of state and local governments, workers, and other entities affected by the spread of the virus. The economic consequences of the actions we’ve taken in order to fight against this virus have caused quite a stir among the American people, with some folks stating that perhaps the measures taken to stop the spread of the illness are actually going to end up doing more harm than good. Many businesses will be closed permanently due to the shutdown and many others out of work will slide into a hole financially speaking. Perhaps a better measure would’ve been to quarantine those who are sick and allow the young and healthy to remain working? Then again, this disease…

The state of New Hampshire is seeking to receive a federal disaster declaration in order to receive additional help that will aid in alleviating the suffering of the citizenry during the coronavirus outbreak that is sweeping the country. Gov. Chris Sununu and the state of New Hampshire are currently set to receive $1.25 billion from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act that was passed into law by Congress last week. Many residents have suffered massive economic stress due to losing their jobs and are set to receive additional unemployment benefits to help offset their current hardships. Here’s more on this from Washington Examiner: The governor signed the Relief for Workers Affected by Coronavirus Act agreement that will give the state 100 percent funding from the federal government for unemployment benefits. Unemployed New Hampshire residents will receive an additional $600 a week in addition to the minimum benefit amount of $32 to $168 a week. The unemployment benefit period will be extended from 26 weeks to 39 weeks. Gov. Sununu recently released a statement saying, “We are making every effort to provide assistance to families who are out of work during this time so that they can focus on what is most important – caring for their families and protecting their health by staying home.” New Hampshire will also be extending business tax collections and interests and dividend payments all the way to June 15. This particular measure is going to impact roughly 98 percent of small businesses and interest and dividend taxpayers. The “stay at home” order the governor issued last week has been made effective until May 4 to help contain the spread of the illness, as well as continuing to keep kids out of school. The state has suspended all standardized testing as of Monday. “While…
