WATCH: Ocasio-Cortez Complains On Video About Having to Work ‘All The Time’

Is this for real? Can she be serious?

Freshman Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) earns $174,000 annually, just like every other member of Congress – aside from the leaders of the House and Senate, who make more.

The 29-year-old Alexandria has only been in office for a couple of months and she’s already complaining about working “all the time.”

No joke.

AOC: “Okay guys, I’m just getting out of work, that’s my office behind me.”

AOC: “Um the thing they don’t tell you about working in Congress is that if you do what you’re supposed to do, you’re working all the time, which means you have no time to set up your life.

WATCH:

Americans work, Alexandria. It’s what we do.

For $174,000, AOC has to know she’s doing far better than the average worker, right? RIGHT!?

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has finally come out to tell Ocasio-Cortez that enough is enough with the “Green New Deal.”

From Daily Wire:

Pelosi has been coy about her support for the GND (or lack thereof), calling the plan “enthusiastic” when it first debuted earlier in February, and has regularly distanced herself from Ocasio-Cortez — and she hasn’t tabled the Green New Deal for a vote, leaving it effectively dead as an answer to “climate change.”

This week, though, Pelosi unleashed her characteristic subtle criticism on Ocasio-Cortez and her partner in the Green New Deal, Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA), in an interview with a reporter from “Rolling Stone” magazine, who asked her why she had yet to allow House Democrats to dicuss the plan openly.

“The Green New Deal,” Pelosi said, goes “beyond our charge.” and “is not what we hope to achieve.”

This is not exactly the first time a member of AOC’s own party has told her to stop.

Not even close, actually.

Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal,” if somehow passed by Congress, was thought to have cost U.S. taxpayers tens of trillions of dollars.

A new report suggests the real number could nearly hit $100 trillion.

That would come to, roughly, $650,000 per American household.

From Daily Wire:

Bloomberg reports that Ocasio-Cortez’s far-left plan would “tally between $51 trillion and $93 trillion over 10-years, concludes American Action Forum, which is run by Douglas Holtz-Eakin, who directed the non-partisan CBO from 2003 to 2005.”

The enormous price tag, which amounts to over $650,000 per U.S. household, covers a low-carbon electricity grid, net zero emissions transportation system, guaranteed jobs, universal health care, guaranteed green housing, and food security.

S. Mitra Kalita has a blue checkmark on Twitter and works in the programming department for CNN.

She sent the following tweet:

Seeing the words “prepared” and “authentic” to describe @AOC, often with surprise that she’s made it so far. This is the superpower of women of color: to prep more than everyone else, read the room, yet stay true to yourself because the alternative ain’t worth it. Just guessing.

Self-described Democrat Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez responded, essentially playing the victim card:

People think it’s a joke when folks say we have to work 2x as hard for the same seat.

Whether you believe it or not, the upside is when we do get here,we’re used to being held to a diff bar. To being doubted. To getting new hoops thrown @ us last min.

So we know how to perform.

Twiter took notice, and things quickly backfired on Alexandria:

Despite promising results for COVID-19 vaccines from pharmaceutical companies Pfizer and Moderna, Levine cited the need to ration them in three phases as a reason for extended preventative measures, according to Penn Live. Levine said, “We anticipate we’re going to be rolling this out through the winter and then into the spring and into the summer. It could take a significant amount of time to immunize everyone in Pennsylvania. I anticipate we’re going to be wearing masks well into 2021, maybe to the end of 2021.”

Not A Joke: AOC, Fauci, & Andrew Cuomo Nominated for ‘Person of the Year’ By TIME

Is this real life?

You’d think this would be an article posted by The Babylon Bee. After all, it literally makes zero sense to have AOC, Fauci, and Cuomo nominated for “person of the year.” It’s almost blasphemous, at this point. All three liberal radicals have done nothing to help their state or country – and that’s the way they like it. From New York Post: Dr. Anthony Fauci and the essential workers who have labored throughout the coronavirus pandemic are tied neck-and-neck as key nominees for Time Magazine’s “Person of the Year” award, a list on which New York’s Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have also landed. The annual poll opened on Wednesday and pulls from reader vote submissions, as individuals are required to vote “yes” or “no” when asked whether or not a specific nominee should be chosen as the overall award winner. […] Other nominees include artists Cardi B, Taylor Swift, Billie Eilish and one-time presidential candidate, rapper Kanye West. Georgia politico Stacey Abrams, U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr’s names similarly got a nod, as well as American NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace, the NBA’s Lebron James and Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes. Is this real life? Would any of these people earn your vote?
