Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is known for making a fool of herself.
But no one thought she would take it this far.
And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez went on TV and left jaws on the ground after this dumb thing she said.
Critics contend there may not be a more economically illiterate member of Congress than Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Ocasio-Cortez claims we only have 12 years left to save the planet from so-called “climate change” and she’s proposed a $93 trillion Marxist “Green New Deal,” which will ban airplane travel and hamburgers as the “solution.”
But on the Mehdi Hasan show, Ocasio-Cortez took the cake when she described the Left’s defeat on their crusade to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour.
“Any person who thinks that a $15 minimum wage is the ‘crazy socialist agenda’ is living in a dystopian capitalist nightmare. And we should not prop that up. We should not continue that,” Ocasio-Cortez ranted.
The socialist Congresswoman from New York then claimed even a $15 an hour minimum wage wasn’t enough and that Democrats needed to raise the minimum wage to $24 an hour.
“Because when you take the minimum wage from several decades ago and you actually account for inflation and productivity gains to today, it should be $24 an hour,” Ocasio-Cortez added.
Ocasio-Cortez claimed that Democrats pushing for a $15 minimum wage know “how deep of a compromise $15 an hour is.”
A Congressional Budget Office study found raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour would kill 1.4 million jobs and only raise 900,000 people out of poverty.
If Ocasio-Cortez got her way, the number of jobs killed would be catastrophic and would result in millions more Americans ending up out of work than those theoretically lifted out of poverty.
