Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just got caught in an embarrassing lie that will end her career

Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is desperately trying to take over the Democrat Party.

If she succeeds, the party will fully embrace her extremist agenda.

But that won’t happen after she got caught in an embarrassing lie that will end her career.

Socialists want to force those who work for a living to finance those who don’t.

So it isn’t surprising that Ocasio-Cortez is taking credit for something she never did.

She recently came out to take credit for fast-tracking the arrival of life-saving HIV drugs to the market.

The only problem is that she had nothing to do with the decision, considering it came four years ago, and was made as a corporate decision that didn’t even involve Congress.

In 2014, Gilead, a pharmaceutical company behind the drug known as PrEP, reached the agreement in 2014 which will allow a generic version to come to the market in 2020.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) falsely claimed that her work in Congress fast-tracked the arrival of life-saving HIV drugs to the market, taking credit for a corporate decision made four years before she was elected to Congress.

Responding to President Trump’s criticism of House Democrats, the progressive congresswoman fabricated a personal achievement by claiming that she “took on Big Pharma” with “colleagues in hearings that brought PrEP generic a year early” in a tweet last week.

In fact, Gilead, the pharmaceutical company behind PrEP—a medication that can reduce the transmission risk of HIV by 99 percent—had reached an agreement back in 2014 to allow a generic version of the drug to come to market a year early. The company disclosed that agreement weeks before its CEO, Daniel O’Day, appeared before Congress in May.

Gilead’s patent for an active ingredient in Truvada—the company’s HIV prevention drug—will expire in 2021, but currently prohibits most competitors from making generic versions of the medicine. However, a 2014 legal settlement between Gilead and Teva Pharmaceutical authorized the latter to sell generic Truvada starting in 2020, a year before the patent is set to expire.

Ocasio-Cortez has achieved nothing since she took office.

So it turns out that her strategy is simply to claim that things she had nothing to do with was due to her work.

She will have to figure out something to take home to her constituents to justify re-electing her in 2020 after all.

    Unfortunately, she’s been caught in a bunch of lies but it doesn’t seem to matter: the dumb people in her district continue to vote for candidates that don’t really care about the voters, the DemocRATs just want to stay in power. They keep promising free stuff that they know they can’t deliver but the low information/lazy people fall for!

    Cortez needs to help her state clean streets & her 3 friends. They want power to skim from our govt. Obama has a $15 Mil. home They want one too. Pelosi is near $30 Mil. for hers, they want one too. Pres. Trump has brought to attention all that will keep us great & they tare it down. They don’t want to help black lives & build schools for them, they want power & money, just like all Dems. I think God will fix the climate, don’t give them a dime, clean the streets & help the homeless with those trillions of dollars.

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has already shown that her constituents do not care about her lies. She has told many without losing support. Her constituents only care about her promises of free stuff. Of course, she has cost her constituents great benefit by driving out a huge source of jobs. She is a rock star now, and as crazy as she is, she can attract votes. Chuck Schumer is wise to watch out.

    I am speechless here. The only thing that I can think of that could possibly pacify the stupidity on the left is to vote for Donald Trump for four more years.

    Li kn e all plants, she can grow or she can, due to the atmosphere and level of her abilities, die on the vine. She is causing her own downfall in politics. She has had her 15 minutes of fame and, like the other three in “The Squad”, she has shot herself in the foot. That “Squad” has brought so much negativity upon itself that we can stick a fork in the ‘members” and see their goose is cooked. They will be history next election.

    So, you like the little brain dead barmaid, don’t you? Sounds like you are one of her voters that put her in office. Thst makes you part of the problem. She needs the boot in the ass all the way back to the bar in NYC and start cleaning those beer glasses.

  9. Ann says:

    Sadly, she is from such a liberal district with low voter turnout that it won’t surprise me if she gets re elected, UGH.

  10. Bravo Gene, Al Gore has made himself a millionaire pushing climate change. UN wants to charge us trillions of dollars bcuz we are one of the only countries that is prospering. Thanks to Trump. What about Mega polluters India, China. Let the polluters clean up their act first.
