BACKLASH UPDATE: NYC's Daily News RIPS AOC for ‘Terribly Wrong Vote’ on Virus Relief Bill

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.27.20

The left-leaning New York Daily News ripped local Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Monday for her “terribly wrong vote” against the federal Coronavirus relief package to help small businesses across the city.

“AOC claims it’s because the bill didn’t go far enough. Yeah: The first aid bill didn’t go far enough. Nor did the second. Nor did the third. The fourth didn’t get there either, but the response to crises happen in steps. If everyone said no to each massive package because it didn’t go all the way, we’d all be even deader in the water,” writes the paper’s Editorial Board.

“Her terribly wrong vote made her the only Democrat in either the House or Senate siding against any of the four coronavirus bailouts passed since early March,” adds the paper. “Not the kind of distinction a rising star legislator should be proud of.”

AOC on VIRUS: Senate’s Bipartisan Coronavirus Relief Bill ‘Shameful!’… Nothing but ‘Crumbs’

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.27.20

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez doubled-down on her fierce opposition to the Senate’s bipartisan Coronavirus relief package Friday; calling the legislation “shameful” and “crumbs” for American families.

“Our community’s reality is this country’s future if we don’t do anything. Hospital workers do not have protective equipment. We don’t have the necessary ventilators. We have to go into this vote eyes wide open,” said Rep. Ocasio-Cortez on the House Floor.

 

“Shameful! The greed of that fight is wrong, for crumbs for our families, and the option that we have is to let them suffer with nothing or to allow this greed and billions of dollars which will be leveraged into trillions of dollars!” she screamed.

AOC on VIRUS: US Must ‘Strip Profit Motive Out of Our Decisions’ to Promote ‘The Public Good’

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.10.20

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez weighed-in on the national Coronavirus crisis this week; saying America must “strip profit motive out of our decisions” to “reprioritize the public good.”

“We have to start demanding… that we strip profit motive out of our decisions and reprioritize the public good and the health of everyday people,” posted AOC on social media.

Ocasio-Cortez continued to comment on the “racist” impact of the Coronavirus Monday; saying the disease is mostly felt in “Black and Latino” communities across the country.

“To all the people that said ‘there’s no evidence racial disparities in COVID impact exist’. I represent the most impacted neighborhoods in the country: Corona & East Elmhurst. These are overwhelmingly Black & Latino neighborhoods. Louis Armstrong’s house is here,” posted AOC on social media.

“I incl that last detail to illustrate that these are also HISTORICALLY Black communities, which means they have been impacted by racist policies like redlining for generations. This pandemic is happening in CONTEXT. & a lot of folks who deny racism have no idea what it really is,” she added.
