(Tea Party PAC) – Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been in office for around a year now, and she has proven in the last 12 months that all of the airheadedness and ditziness she’s displayed during that time was not an act, but is indeed her actual intelligence level, which tragically seems to be less than a toddler’s shoe size.
AOC has removed all doubt to her lack of understanding about the real world by making comments about billionaires, stating that a person cannot make a billion, but takes a billion, insinuating that those who are super wealthy got to be that way by taking from others.
This is rich coming from someone who is a socialist and wants to forcibly take money from one group of people and redistribute it to others.
Here’s more on this insanity from Fox News Business:
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., said that “no one ever makes a billion dollars. You take a billion dollars” during a Martin Luther King Jr. Day discussion with author Ta-Nehisi Coates on Monday.
“No one ever makes a billion dollars. You take a billion dollars,” Ocasio-Cortez said, receiving applause. “I’m not here to villainize and to say billionaires are inherently morally corrupt. … It’s to say that this system that we live in, life in capitalism always ends in billionaires.”

She addressed a hypothetical “widget” billionaire in her remarks.
“You didn’t make those widgets, did you? Because you employed thousands of people and paid them less than a living wage to make those widgets for you,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “You didn’t make those widgets. You sat on a couch while thousands of people were paid modern-day slave wages, and in some cases real modern-day slavery.”
Ocasio-Cortez, who advocates for democratic socialism, is not the only Democrat in Washington, D.C., honing in on billionaires these days.
Ocasio-Cortez joined in on presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren’scriticism of JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon in November by saying he’s a billionaire “asking for a safe space” amid Democrats’ desire for economic disruption.

Y’all, the billionaires are asking for a safe space – you know, in addition to the entire US economy and political lobbying industry. https://t.co/oJR8SZz9gJ

Again, AOC has no idea how the real world works, nor how a free market economy functions, something that she has demonstrated ignorance about on an almost daily basis now. The whole point of a free market economy is that anyone, if they work hard enough and find a prodcut or service people want, can become wealthy.
The opportunities are there for anyone willing to do the hard work necessary to become successful. Now, success looks different to different people, but that’s beside the point. Billionaires often get to where they are because they understand how to create high quality products and services that appeal to a certain group of individuals.
Often times these folks provide jobs and benefits their employees don’t get anywhere else.
All of that would stop if it was up to people like AOC.
