Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Picked For Finance Committee Demonstrates Unseriousness Of Democrats


The new House Democrat leadership wants to be taken seriously. Even as it gives every evidence of its fundamental unseriousness.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) is slated to join the committee leading the House's oversight of U.S banks, lenders and financial markets.

Ocasio-Cortez has been recommended by Democratic leaders for a spot on the House Financial Services Committee, a Democratic source told The Hill on Tuesday. The full roster of Democrats joining the committee is expected to be released as soon as Tuesday night.

We're talking about a committee now being chaired by Rep. Maxine Waters.

The socialist hipster freshman is popular on social media, but utterly ignorant of even the basics. It's not just that her politics are wrong or that she's basically every negative stereotype about millennials in one obnoxious, compulsively dishonest package.

She's just ridiculously ignorant.

“Unemployment is low because everyone has two jobs,” said Ocasio-Cortez in an interview on PBS’ “Firing Line with Margaret Hoover”

"And so I do think that right now we have this no-holds-barred, Wild West hyper-capitalism. What that means is profit at any cost. Capitalism has not always existed in the world, and it will not always exist in the world. When this country started, we were not a capitalist [nation], we did not operate on a capitalist economy."

"People often say, how are you gonna pay for it? And I find the question so puzzling because, how do you pay for something that’s more affordable? How do you pay for cheaper rent? How do you pay for—you just pay for it."

There's a legion of these 'Ocasioisms'.

Ocasio-Cortez has her routine which involves compulsive lying, equally compulsive ignorance and playing social media games. But little else can be expected from her.

More is expected of the Democrat House leadership which picked someone manifestly unqualified for an important position because she has a following on social media.
