The rank privilege games under AOC’s ‘Tax the rich’ gown
Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez comes closer to becoming a new Marie Antoinette every day, reveling in the loss of jobs for average Americans as she herself is embroiled in an “I don’t have to pay” scandal.
At news of Amazon’s stalled construction on a headquarters campus in Virginia, AOC tweeted on Friday: “Finally, we were right.”
Well, no: “we” — Ocasio-Cortez, state Sen. Mike Gianaris — and other progressives who opposed the deal — didn’t argue that plans for an Amazon headquarters in Queens would never happen: their The complaint was that a large corporation would get some tax break from the deal.
That the move will bring thousands of good-paying jobs to the city (and more for construction) is irrelevant. These would apparently be the “wrong” types of jobs.
And so New York lost; Amazon planned two more East Coast campuses instead, and now Virginia is on hold as the company grapples with key economic conditions created by drunken-sailor charges and anti-business policies imposed by the AOC and his party. goes
Meanwhile, the Progs sent a clear message to job creators: Don’t even think about coming to New York. So much for AOC’s constituents in Queens.
“We were right”? Such is the modesty of the squad leader, who is now being exposed as flouting House ethics rules to bag free tickets to the 2021 Met Gala (main value $70,000), perhaps the most glamorous social event of the year.
This is where she wore the “tax the rich” outfit. However, it has now emerged that her office has defamed the designer for undercutting the already cut price of the gown. He also got a discount on his shoes.
In fact, by the time the ethics probe began, she was also cracking down on the make-up artist, hair stylist and car service she used that night. Way to show solidarity with little people.
And it appears that such a sled is “the way of the squad.” many whose members now face ethics scrutiny.
Funny how people who claim so loudly that they are fighting for the downtrodden continue to enjoy caring for them. . . yourself.
