AOC Asked The Various Social Media Platforms For Help

Infamous congresswoman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) got exactly what she asked for in a recent social media request.

This past Thursday morning, AOC put out feelers on social media for recommendations for resources concerning housing, which prompted many conservative users to give responses containing their favorite economics resources.

The managing editor of The Babylon Bee, Joel Barry, put out the suggestion that the progressive lawmaker take some time to read “Basic Economics” and “Discrimination and Disparities” by well-known economist Thomas Sowell.

“Girl you better start at the ABCs,” claimed Lavern Spicer, a Republican congressional candidate.

While serving as the press secretary for Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-AL), Kasey Lovett recommended AOC look towards former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson, who comes from southwest Detroit.

Earlier this past week, AOC, who was a former bartender but now sports a $174K Salary as a member of the House of Representatives, complained about how capitalism is “not a redeemable system.”

“I believe that in a broad sense because when we toss out these big words, capitalism, socialism, they get sensationalized,” Stated AOC as part of an interview with Yahoo Finance. “And people translate them into meaning things that perhaps they don’t mean. So to me, capitalism at its core, what we’re talking about when we talk about that, is the absolute pursuit of profit at all human, environmental, and social cost. That is what we’re really discussing.”

“And what we’re also discussing is the ability for a very small group of actual capitalists — and that is people who have so much money that their money makes money, and they don’t have to work. And they can control industry. They can control our energy sources,” she went on. “They can control our labor. They can control massive markets that they dictate and can capture governments. And they can essentially have power over the many. And to me that is not a redeemable system for us to be able to participate in for the prosperity and peace for the vast majority of people.”

As part of a recent speech that took place on the House floor in December, AOC spoke about the record-breaking $1.73 trillion in national student loan debt as entirely “ridiculous,” which caused another round of mockery across social media.

“I’m 32 years old now,” claimed the lawmaker. “I have over $17,000 in student loan debt, and I didn’t go to graduate school because I knew that getting another degree would drown me in debt that I would never be able to surpass. This is unacceptable.”

“Pay your own darn bills,” exclaimed Brad Polumbo, Foundation for Economic Education policy correspondent, in response.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) has also stated while on the House floor that she also fights with student loan debt: “I worked full time, Monday through Friday, and took weekend classes to get my law degree. And still, close to $200,000 in debt. And I still owe over $70,000 and most of it was interest.”
