AOC Talks Smack About Major Dem Bill ‘Passed By House’… It Hasn’t Even Been Voted On

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez truly is the gift that keeps on giving.

The New York socialist took to Twitter on Monday to talk smack and brag about how House Democrats “passed” a major pieces of legislation.

But there’s one major issue: it hasn’t even been put to a floor vote in the House.

In her tweet, Ocasio-Cortez spoke about the For The People Act, a Democrat-led bill that would reduce the influence of big money in politics, “expand Americans” access to the ballot box, and strengthen ethics rules for public servants.

“Democrats took a 1st step to fix the massive, foundational issue of voting reform & money in politics.#HR1 For the People Act by @RepSarbanes was cosponsored by 227 members&passed the House,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote.She added: “Now it’s at the Senate. GOP is calling getting money out of politics a ‘power grab.’”

Again, this is complete fake news.

The bill, which was introduced on Jan. 3, hasn’t even been brought to the House floor for a vote.

It’s still sitting in a House committee, meaning it’s far from being “at the Senate” and in the hands of the GOP.

After major blow back, Ocasio-Cortez issued a pathetic “quick correction” that essentially proved everything she originally claimed was false.

“Quick Correction: intro’d House instead of passed (yet!). Senate GOP still speaking out against it,” she wrote.

Ocasio-Cortez is a gaffe machine, but it is astounding to see an elected member of Congress struggle mightily to understand basic functions of how government works.

The 29-year-old bartender turned socialist lawmaker still has no idea how government works.

Ocasio-Cortez’s embarrassing flub came after her Green New Deal is being ruthlessly mocked by many on both sides of the political aisle.

The core of the Green New Deal is to require the U.S. to eliminate “pollution and greenhouse gas emissions” and meet “100 percent of the power demand in the United States through clean, renewable, and zero-emission energy sources” within 10 years.

The legislation also calls for every single building in the United States to be “upgraded or replaced,” meaning taxpayers will be stuck footing that massive bill.

Not missing the chance to peddle liberal talking points, the bill actually argues that climate change has “exacerbated systemic racial … injustices” as well as other inequalities.

The legislation goes on to argue that its goal is to secure “community resiliency” and “repairing historic oppression” of almost every class of victims the authors can imagine.

Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal also promised to provide “free” healthcare, education, and even jobs, including to those who are “unwilling to work.”

However, taxpayers will be stuck footing the bill, which comes out to $7 trillion.

Other studies have found that it could actually cost nearly $50 trillion, which would be roughly seven — SEVEN — times more than that.
