Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is gunning for a new job that would be devastating for every taxpayer
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is in the headlines again.
This time she wants a new job.
And if she gets her way it would be a disaster for every American.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is trying to get on the House Ways and Means Committee.
Ways and Means is one of the most powerful committees in the House.
It’s a standing committee that is first to get its hands on all bills regarding taxation.
Fox News reports:
Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has not yet been sworn into Congress, but she’s already eyeing a seat at one of the most powerful House committees in charge of taxation laws.
The Democratic Socialist’s spokesperson confirmed to Vice News that she will seek a seat on the House Ways and Means committee, which is traditionally packed with seasoned legislators with experience in writing tax code.
The effort to get on the committee indicates the progressive Democrats’ growing ambition to bring forward actual progressive bills to the vote, as the committee is instrumental in making that happen.
Ocasio-Cortez, together with other freshmen Democrats, has been pushing for grand policies, including Medicare for All and the Green New Deal. Both measures would need to go through the committee before it could be subjected to a vote.
Ocasio-Cortez has already proven her ignorance on the economy.
She said that the unemployment rate was low because everyone has two jobs.
And she was given four Pinocchios by The Washington Post for claiming the Pentagon lost $21 Trillion and that would pay for her “Medicare for all” dream.
But despite that there is still a chance that she may get the committee assignment.
She knocked off Rep. Joe Crowley in her summer primary who previously held the committee seat.
And she’s a media darling whose successfully pushed the Democratic Party even further to the left.
