Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has completely abandoned her basic responsibility.
She’s willing to let a family member hurt just to make a political point.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez revealed a family secret that’s shameful.
The problem with socialism is that the government can never replace the family.
The government can efficiently give resources to the people in need and instead enriches corrupt politicians.
In the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, Congress allocated $42.5 billion to disaster relief for Puerto Rico in order to rebuild from the devastating hurricane. In total, the government has allocated $63 billion in relief funding.
Trump was perfectly willing to give money to help Puerto Rico rebuild, he just had strict guidelines to “enforce compliance” with federal grant standards to make sure that the money wasn’t mismanaged.
Yet according to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, she felt that the federal government hasn’t spent enough money and is to blame for her grandmother’s poor living conditions.
“Just over a week ago, my [grandmother] fell ill,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “I went to Puerto Rico to see her- my 1st time in a year+ bc of COVID. This is her home. Hurricane María relief hasn’t arrived. Trump blocked relief $ for PR. People are being forced to flee ancestral homes, & developers are taking them.”
Ocasio-Cortez attached pictures of a room with the ceiling falling in and buckets on the floor to catch water.
After people questioned the wellbeing of her grandmother, AOC responded that her grandmother was “doing okay.”
“It’s not about us, but about what’s happening to Puerto Rican’s across the island,” she wrote. “She had a place to go to and be cared for – what about the thousands of people who don’t?”
Ocasio-Cortez has a $174,000-a-year salary and recently purchased a Tesla but she’s blaming her grandmother’s problems on the Trump administration and said, “Much of it can be traced to La Junta, aka the Wall Street-connected fiscal control board that the US gave power to over the island,” she said.
“Honey, you drive a Tesla and have two apartments,” Republican congressional candidate Lavern Spicer tweeted. “If your grandmother is living poor that’s because you don’t help her out. I’m surprised that a socialist wouldn’t redistribute that wealth to their grandma. Sad!”
Matt Walsh, Daily Wire columnist tweeted: “AOC went and bought herself a Tesla while her grandmother lives in a shack with a collapsing ceiling. It never fails with these champagne socialists. They expect everyone else to make sacrifices while making none themselves.”
