Here’s a statement that’s probably not going to surprise anyone who’s a regular reader of The Western Journal: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a hypocrite.
What’s surprising, instead, is the understatement. It’s a bit like saying that Pete Rose occasionally likes placing a wager or Keith Richards sometimes partakes in recreational substances.
This is someone whose career is mostly woven out of hypocrisy.
So, why should it be surprising that AOC is now lambasting Congress for sending small businesses on a “wild goose chase” for the Paycheck Protection Program funds she voted against?
In a tweet Tuesday, AOC retweeted NBC News reporter Sahil Kapur’s post about Ocasio-Cortez and Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts “team[ing] up on a new proposal to halt big mergers during the coronavirus pandemic.”
“Congress gave a $4 TRILLION check to Wall Street while sending mom+pops on a wild goose chase for PPP,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. (The $4 trillion isn’t entirely accurate as well, though you can read more about that here.)
“That is major, oligarchic, economy-shaping power Congress just gave the wealthy.
“The LEAST we should do is halt big mergers during COVID to slow the consolidation of sectors.”
