Ocasio-Cortez: In US 'if you don't have a job you are left to die'
By Michael Burke - 03/10/19 03:36 PM EDT



Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) said Saturday that, in the U.S., "if you don’t have a job, you are left to die."

Ocasio-Cortez, who made the remark at South by Southwest in Austin, Texas, added that "we should not be haunted by" the possibility of automated workers replacing jobs, according to The Verge.

“We should be excited by that. But the reason we’re not excited by it is because we live in a society where if you don’t have a job, you are left to die. And that is, at its core, our problem," added the congressman, whose "Green New Deal" proposal includes a federal jobs guarantee.

Ocasio-Cortez also said during her interview that automation could potentially allow for more time to focus on art, inventions, the sciences and "enjoying the world that we live in."

“Because not all creativity needs to be bonded by wage," she said.

Ocasio-Cortez describes herself as a democratic socialist and has urged the Democratic party to consider progressive policies and proposed the Green New Deal resolution, which suggests aiming for zero carbon emissions in a decade. The resolution also aims "to create millions of good, high-wage jobs in the United States."

She doesn't really have a job. Could she just die?

Facts matter more than feelings. The Second Amendment is self-explanatory. And as a doctor, I can assure you there are only two genders.”

Lets just leave her to die and call it even.

Her words.  Don't wag that finger at me for pushing back on that bad actor.

Where has that happened? And no one was there with an iPhone to record it for posterity?

You can tell she is from NYC and that she is not familiar with Austin at all.
Of all the places to say, 'left to die', Austin is the last place where this fits. Austin has an abundance of social services and social welfare programs. If anyone is going hungry in Austin it is their own fault. There are food trucks, soup kitchens, church kitchens, and food pantries everywhere.

There may be places like that, but Austin is not one of them. AOC is way off target.
You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.
If they kill their own with no conscience, there is nothing to stop them from killing you.
Rational fear and anger at vicious murderous Islamic terrorists is the same as irrational antisemitism, according to the Leftists.

That must come as news to any welfare queens who voted for her.

AOC is another post-turtle: in a high place, you know she didn't get there on her own, and now that she's there, she doesn't have any idea what to do.
And when they behead your own people in the wars which are to come, then you will know what this was all about.

Can't she accomplish that and still lose her seat?
Don't call it the "Federal Government," that's an insult to the Founders.  It's a "National Government."
I will NOT comply.

I sure hope so. Her reign of terror needs to end.

I'm reminded of something Rush Limbaugh once said (paraphrased):  We need to keep some liberals around so we can study them.

Her parents need to sue Boston University and get the money back they wasted on helping her get her degree.

I wonder if they had to pay a dime. She has affirmative action written all over her.

She might try to play the affirmative action card...but Alex From the Bronx is really from a fairly well off family from Westchester County.

I used to think she was running as a joke to make Biden look smarter, but I really want her to stick around. The more she talks the more Moderates and independents say "WTF" and shift to the right. I want that spotlight on her full time.

With socialism, you have a job, and you are still left to die.
If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.

She's been saying ever more ludicrous things, always seeking attention.   The MSM loves her but eventually they will figure out that she is their worst enemy.
Sadly the newly elected congress critters have spent the majority of their time complaining, criticizing and offering no sensible solutions.
They demand respect from the leadership but have done nothing to earn respect.    Crazy town has gotten crazier.  Who knew.
