In her latest appearance on Vice TV, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) urged Americans to refuse calls to go back to work as the economy is poised to gradually reopen.
As a Member of the House of Representatives, Ocasio-Cortez makes $174,000 annually.
The Daily Wire’s Hank Berrien has more:
Vice TV, which will air “A Seat at the Table” along with Ocasio-Cortez’s commentary, reported, “Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez calls for a national work boycott. The congresswoman says Americans should refuse to go back to work.”
Ocasio-Cortez reportedly stated on the show, “When we talk about this idea of reopening society you know, only in America —does the president — when the president tweets about liberation — does he mean go back to work. When we have this discussion about going back or reopening, I think a lot people should just say no — we’re not going back to that,” according to the Washington Times. Ocasio-Cortez continued, “We’re not going back to working 70-hour weeks just so that we can put food on the table and not even feel any sort of semblance of security in our lives.”
Ocasio-Cortez was referring to President Trump’s series of tweets calling for the liberation of states that have been encumbered with stay-at-home orders and lockdowns.
Without any sense of irony, AOC proceeded to scold the president for the recent loss of 20 million jobs.
As The Daily Wire reported, “Ocasio-Cortez’s remarks are not true. Republicans have repeatedly led on the issue of providing funding to Americans and American businesses that are struggling as a result of the pandemic only to be repeatedly blocked by Democrats.”
