(RightIsRight.co) – Proving that she is a die-hard socialist – perhaps even a communist – United States Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), better known as AOC, is blaming the rampant violent crime that is surging all across the United States of America on the expiration of the expanded child tax credit.
We cover the news every day, but we must admit we didn’t see that level of craziness coming from a sitting member of Congress.
As the New York Post reports:
“New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez whined about her job and blamed the expiration of the expanded child tax credit for fueling crime in a new interview where she claimed that parents are stealing baby formula to feed their kids…
“Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), representing the Bronx and Queens, also complained about her $174,000-a-year gig as a federal lawmaker, calling Congress a ‘s–t show’ that she claims has her thinking about walking away from politics ‘all the time.’” [emphasis added]
But she wasn’t done and provided more of her crazy reasoning linking crime and the child tax credit.
“Ocasio-Cortez further insisted that the recent election of Mayor Eric Adams, a former NYPD cop, on a law-and-order platform was not ‘evidence of some sort of decision around policing,’ and she accused America of ignoring the reasons behind the rise in crime that accompanied the COVID-19 pandemic.
“‘Because we run away from substantive discussions about this, we don’t want to say some of the things that are obvious, like, Gee, the child-tax credit just ran out, on December 31st, and now people are stealing baby formula,” AOC said. [emphasis added]
All we can say is despite her outrageous attempt to link surging crime and the expiration of the expanded child tax credit, we agree with AOC about two things captured in her statements reprinted above.
Congress is a s**t show. She should walk away from politics. Maybe she should go back to being a bartender.
