I would retire tomorrow if I could figure out a way to Buy AOC for what she is worth and could sell her for what she thinks she is worth. Heck, I could help 50 or 60 of my closest friends to retire as well. Her latest epiphany is that the massive deficit spending by the Democrats did not cause our huge inflation. She claims it is the greedy monsters on Wall St.
Think of it this way. Every time we print money without anything to back it up, we devalue the dollar. But, if Wall St. was getting all of the money, stocks would be flying high because of the massive profits. That is not happening. The stock market has been doing, especially poorly under Biden and the Democrats. So, is inflation high because of deficit spending or because of record profits on Wall St.? That is an easy one to answer.AOC said:
“Even when we talk about issues like inflation. A lot of this has to do with the massive consolidation of our markets and corporate greed.”
“Our inflation is not going up due to government policies, inflation is going up due to Wall Street decisions.”
“There is absolutely no doubt that the data shows that the vast majority of incidents of domestic terror come from white nationalism.”
“And that we are really truly facing an environment of fascism and in the United States of America, this type of intimidation at the polls brings us to Jim Crow, it bring us back and hearkens back to a very unique form of American apartheid that is not that long past ago. And we have never fully healed from it. And those wounds threaten to rip right back open if we do not strongly defend democracy in United States of America.”
AOC actually says that guarding drop boxes is voter intimidation. I say allowing illegal ballot harvesters is conservative voter suppression. Every ballot harvester steals my vote and yours. The Democrats do not have a problem with cheating, it’s getting caught they hate. And if you believe her excuse for inflation, then perhaps you have what it takes to be a bartender.
Socialist Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York denied that government policies exacerbated inflation and instead blamed corporate greed while claiming Americans were in an “environment of fascism.”
Ocasio-Cortez made the claims while being interviewed by MSNBC host Chris Hayes on his show. She was addressing how Democrats were failing in polls ahead of the midterm elections because of the weak economy.
Ocasio-Cortez was repeating a well-worn defense used by Democrats and others to try to defend President Joe Biden and his high-spending policies from those saying they made inflation worse. Polls show that Americans mostly blame Biden’s policies for inflation ahead of a key midterm election season.
