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.

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:

Ilhan Omar’s Housing Plan Costs $1 Trillion; Includes Provisions For Undocumented Immigrants

Published

on

Controversial Congresswoman Ilhan Omar announced her affordable housing program, which will cost $1 trillion, revealing that it includes provisions for illegal immigrants. Omar revealed the “Homes for All Act” on Thursday, which would go hand-in-hand with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal by creating 12 million housing units by ensuring they were all built to the highest environmental standards. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: In her announcement, Omar, 38, explained that her affordable housing plan would ensure that no one is denied access to public housing, no matter their gender identity, race, sexuality, or immigration status. https://twitter.com/Ilhan/status/1197515008982310912 “We will prohibit any discrimination against residents based on sexual orientation, gender, criminal history or immigration status,” Omar explained, later adding, “Doing the Homes for All really gets us closer to having the America I imagined be realized and I’m really excited for the opportunity to now be in a position of influence to get that done.” This would break from the Trump administration’s affordable housing policies. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson announced in May that undocumented families would be denied taxpayer-funded housing in order to make room for citizens in need of public housing. Omar, who first arrived in America at the age of 12 as a refugee, has noted that the sight of folks living on the streets had a profound impact when she came to this country. Ever since, she has vowed to fight for making housing a human right. https://twitter.com/IlhanMN/status/1197530827741110272 Omar did not provide any information on how the program would be funded.

DNA Test Results Reveal Hunter Biden Is Father Of Arkansas Woman’s Child

Published

on

DNA tests results have “established with scientific certainty” that Hunter Biden, son of former Vice President Joe Biden, is the father of an Arkansas woman’s baby. The woman filed a motion on Wednesday concerning the DNA results. The filing says Biden is “not expected to challenge the results of the DNA test or the testing process.” Here’s more from CNN: Hunter Biden had denied in a previous court filing that he had fathered the child, but agreed in October to a paternity test. Neither Joe Biden’s campaign nor an attorney for Hunter Biden immediately responded to requests for comment. It’s the latest development to thrust the former vice president’s son into the spotlight as Joe Biden seeks the Democratic 2020 presidential nomination. The news came just hours before 10 Democratic contenders met in Atlanta for a debate. Hunter Biden has been the subject of scrutiny in recent months over his business dealings in Ukraine. President Donald Trump’s efforts to convince Ukraine’s President to investigate the company that had reportedly paid Biden as much as $50,000 per month to sit on its board is the subject of the House’s impeachment probe. There is no evidence of wrongdoing on the part of either Biden in Ukraine. Lunden Alexis Roberts, 28, filed the lawsuit back in May asking for child support and health care for the baby, who was born in August of 2018. Roberts’ legal team’s latest filings say that Biden’s family members are eligible for protection by the Secret Service. Roberts petitioned the court to seal any information concerning the identity of the child.
