posted by Hannity Staff - 3.17.20

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez issued her list of priorities in any potential Coronavirus relief package Tuesday; saying the proposal must include programs like Universal Basic Income (UBI), Medicaid expansion, and more.

“This is unacceptable. Trump is using this public health crisis as an opportunity to push tax cuts and corporate bailouts. This is an emergency. We need to help vulnerable people & small biz now w/ paid leave, extended unemployment, UBI, Medicaid expansion,&mortgage suspensions,” she posted on Twitter.

“Expanding small biz loans is an acceptable consideration- but we must avoid allowing this crisis to put millions of people in insurmountable debt. Checks to people are good and I applaud the proposal, but it’s not enough. But we need payment suspensions to get people through,” she added.

“In a Sunday interview with the Yahoo News podcast ‘Skullduggery,’ the freshman New York congresswoman explained why she is endorsing a boycott of the paper organized by local Yemeni-American bodega owners, calling the Post’s attack on her friend Rep. Ilhan Omar ‘beyond the pale,’” adds the author.

Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slammed Rep. Dan Crenshaw on social media Thursday afternoon; accusing the GOP lawmaker of ‘drumming resentment’ towards Ilhan Omar.

“You refuse to cosponsor the 9/11 Victim’s Compensation Fund, yet have the audacity to drum resentment towards Ilhan w/completely out-of-context quotes,” posted Ocasio-Cortez. “In 2018, right-wing extremists were behind almost ALL US domestic terrorist killings. Why don’t you go do something about that?”

Rep. Omar found herself in hot-water this week after footage emerged showing the freshman Democrat referring to the 9/11 terror attacks as “some people” who “did something.”
