Squad members Congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib introduced a new amendment this week to end President Trump’s “opportunity zone” programs in American cities.

“Progressive Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and Rashida Tlaib(D-Mich.) this week proposed an amendment that would prevent the IRS from using funds to administer or enforce the ‘opportunity zone’ program created by President Trump‘s 2017 tax-cut law,” reports The Hill.

“Under the opportunity zone program, investors can receive capital gains tax breaks if they make investments in designated economically-distressed areas,” adds the website.

The program was created to incentivize businesses to invest in lower-income communities with increased tax breaks.

“While President Trump repeatedly attacks the New York Times and other purveyors of ‘fake news,’ New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is targeting her own media foe: the New York Post,” reports Yahoo News.

“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.

AOC ERUPTS: Ocasio-Cortez Claims Social Media Companies Rely on ‘White Supremacists’ to be ‘Successful’

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.28.20

Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez escalated her ongoing feud with Facebook Thursday; saying the social media platform relies on “white supremacists” to be “successful.”

“Zuckerberg is not worried about being bullied by Trump. He is worried that Facebook’s PR operation is falling apart as it’s exposed that their platform relies on white supremacists & disinformation peddlers to be successful. They aren’t ignoring them. They’re protecting them,” posted AOC on social media.

 

Ocasio-Cortez ripped the White House’s use of a standard labor index this week; saying ‘Human Capital Stock’ is “an ugly term with an ugly history.”

“Human Capital Stock. An ugly term w ugly history, but for many powerful ppl it‘s their most honest view of workers: human stock. By their logic, the moment a person stops being useful to profit motive (retirement, health, etc) they are a liability. That’s the system we live in,” posted AOC on social media.
