As If You Needed Another Reason Never to Vote for Democrats Again …

After the shrieking tantrum Rep. Haley Stevens threw on the floor of the House of Representatives today, I would have thought that congressional Democrats — you know, the ones who wasted a week delaying passage of this emergency legislation — could not do worse. But of course, I had forgotten about Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez:

Calling the measure “shameful,” Ocasio-Cortez accused Senate Republicans of fighting for “greed” and “one of the largest corporate bailouts with as few strings as possible in American history.”
“The greed of that fight is wrong, for crumbs for our families,” Ocasio-Cortez continued, arguing that the Senate’s bill had put her in an impossible position with no good options.
“The option that we have is to either let them suffer with nothing or to allow this greed and billions of dollars which will be leveraged into trillions of dollars to contribute to the largest income inequality gap in our future,” she explained.
“There should be shame about what was fought for in this bill, choices that we have to make,” Ocasio-Cortez concluded, warning, “Our community’s reality is this country’s future if we don’t do anything.”


What she calls “crumbs” is a payment of $3,400 for a family of four. Considering that the median U.S. household income is $63,688, that’s less than three weeks’ income, but it will help to pay rent and utilities for families thrown out of work because of shutdowns caused by coronavirus. As to “corporate bailouts,” what does she think will happen to workers if their employers go out of business? While I consider federal bailouts to be a bad idea, generally, there is certainly no more “greed” behind this legislation than was involved in various swindles pushed through Congress and signed into law by President Obama when Democrats ran the whole D.C. show in 2009-2010. But I digress . . .

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a bad person, and everyone who voted Democrat in 2018 is responsible for the influence this idiot has in Congress. That’s how political parties function, you see — every vote for any political party helps to empower the worst elements of that party. There are Republicans I find obnoxious, and deplore their influence in our public affairs, but when you compare the two parties, why does it seem the Democrats have a monopoly on dangerous idiots like the arm-waving, finger-pointing Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez?

What does it say about the people of New York’s 14th District that they chose this irresponsible child to represent them in Congress? It is never wise to wish ill on people, and certainly it’s not Christian, but when I see Rep. Ocasio-Cortez declaring that her district is among the communities hardest hit by the Wuhan virus outbreak, it causes me to wonder if something like divine wrath might help explain this pandemic.

As I say, it’s un-Christian to think this way, as we are commanded to pray even for our enemies, but if indeed Jehovah was displeased by the elevation of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to Congress, then perhaps this plague was intended to cause New Yorkers to repent their sins.

Did I mention that one thing Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was angry about was that this bill didn’t include payments for illegal aliens?

Don’t vote Democrat. Never never never never vote Democrat.
