There is little doubt that the Democrat Party is now being run by the likes of Ocasio-Cortez a Socialist along with a large number of the moderates in the Democrat Party. She along with Bernie Sanders have a huge following among young millennials who call themselves Democrat Socialists.
Unfortunately for America Ocasio-Cortez, Sanders and their followers are economic illiterates.
Read the analysis in the opinion piece below that appeared in the Washington Post . By following her advice the loss to New York was estimated by the Governor to be $27 Billion. The actual loss is far far greater. So far each of the Democrats running for President have embraced the absurd Green New Deal created by this economic illiterate. No one can doubt New York Democrats have already marched off the cliff under the tutelage of Ocasio-Cortez and her followers.
America will be in serious trouble if it follows the advice of Ocasio-Cortez and her entourage. It is not an exaggeration to say this economic illiterate and her followers could destroy America.
The left complains that conservatives are “obsessing” over Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Well, there is a reason for that: Ocasio-Cortez is driving the agenda of today’s Democratic Party — and her economic illiteracy is dangerous.
Case in point: Last week, Ocasio-Cortez celebrated the tanking of a deal negotiated by her fellow Democrats in which Amazon promised to build a new headquarters in Long Island City, New York, right next to her congressional district. Amazon’s departure cost the city between 25,000 and 40,000 new jobs. Forget the tech workers whom Amazon would have employed. Gone are all the unionized construction jobs to build the headquarters, as well as thousands of jobs created by all the small businesses — restaurants, bodegas, dry cleaners and food carts — that were preparing to open or expand to serve Amazon employees. They are devastated by Amazon’s withdrawal. (Amazon’s founder and chief executive, Jeffrey P. Bezos, also owns The Post.)
