PERMANENT PANDEMIC? AOC to Introduce Bill to Extend COVID Unemployment Benefits

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.15.21

Far-Left Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is poised to introduce new legislation that would extend COVID-related unemployment benefits to millions of Americans after three federal programs expired on Labor Day.

“I’ve been very disappointed on both sides of the aisle that we’ve just allowed pandemic unemployment assistance to completely lapse, when we are clearly not fully recovered from the cost effects of the pandemic,” the New York Democrat said Tuesday night during a virtual town hall. “I simply just could not allow this to happen without at least trying.”

“An estimated 7.5 million workers saw all unemployment benefits on Labor Day, while another 3 million lost the extra $300 boost to their state jobless aid, according to a recent report published by the left-leaning Century Foundation. The three programs that expired that day had provided out-of-work Americans with an extra $300 a week on top of their regular state benefits, offered aid to workers who were not typically eligible and extended state unemployment benefits once they had been exhausted,” reports Fox News.

“I’m not entirely sure the prospects of it, and I want to be completely honest with you all on that,” she said. “We will work it, we will try, but I simply just could not allow us to let this happen without at least trying.”

Embattled Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez escalated her war-of-words with the NY Post this week; supporting a national boycott against her hometown paper after they posted a fierce response to Rep. Ilhan Omar’s 9/11 remarks.

“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.
