Ocasio-Cortez Demands Trump Wall Funds Be Used for Something Else, Instantly Regrets It

A bill for $5.7 billion in funding for President Trump’s U.S.-Mexico border wall sailed through the still-Republican-led House of Representatives on Thursday on was headed on its way to a showdown in the Senate.

According to ABC affiliate WBAY, the vote in favor of the wall funding fell largely along party lines.

Incoming socialist congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez sounded off on Twitter, trying to use her aversion to the border wall to score some politico points. And she failed miserably.

“And just like that, GOP discovers $5.7 billion for a wall,” she wrote. “$5.7 billion. What if we instead added $5.7B in teacher pay? Or replacing water pipes? Or college tuition/prescription refill subsidies? Or green jobs? But notice how no one’s asking the GOP how they’re paying for it.”

Her Twitter followers quickly informed her of a few things:

Regarding her comment of “notice how no one’s asking the GOP how they’re paying for it,” one Twitter user harkened back to the numerous times Ocasio-Cortez has failed to explain how the government will find the $40 trillion needed to fund her proposed programs over the next decade — like during this CNN interview and this Univision interview.

    This inept woman is a walking talking disaster. I said from the beginning, the Democrats will rue the day they let this woman not only run but win a congressional office. She may end up being the albatross that will take them down.

          There was a time when people like her were recognized for the incompetent she is. Those times are over. Children no longer learn about the US Constitution in our schools, how our government is designed to work, and how it protects us from tyranny. They no longer learn about the horrors of socialism and the millions who’ve been murdered in socialist regimes. It’s the voters who are the problem. Idiots like Ocasio-Cortez have always been with us, but in the past they weren’t elected to Congress.

            When you have no one to debate you, correct your misleading statements, and just listens to your babble; it sounds great that she thinks so many things can be done through a Communist government. She has no facts, she just mindlessly blabs about all of her “pie in the sky” ideas. Of course to other under educated people like herself (liberals), everything sounds so rosy in the other side of the fence. She can’t handle anyone correcting her. She is more or less a female David Hogg and wants to cry victim, when someone hurts her feelings.

She is just trying to make herself poor to get their votes…SHAME ON HER. She went to the BEST schools not public..and from a well to do family. Another Socialist/far left wants to give to all free schooling, health care etc.. except 70% tax rate for the rich?? Who is going to pay for this?? the POOR WORKING CLASS. WAKE UP.

        January 9, 2019 at 7:10 am

        Does this idiot really think more affluent people are going to stand for being taxed at 70%. We aren’t in a major war to warrant such high taxes. People with money will leave the country and leave her the not so tippy tops, to have to pay for her stupidity. It won’t take long for the government to collapse under its own weight.

    Why put more money into schools. The teachers don’t teach, The colleges are a joke an assembly line of liberal crybabies Obamacare is a joke. they had their chance when the Democrats where in office. What she wants is the money to give away to illegals, and socialists. Not to mention her own bank account.

Go ask Hillary, Obama and Soros and all the rest of the rotten thief’s that have been robbing this country for years on end…..Do not slither your way in like a snake and think the money that has been raised for the wall…….is going anywhere else……BUT THE WALL!!!!!!!!

    She is dumb, for sure, and so are the people who elected her. I doubt that they will ever be embarrassed by her. They, too, missed the civics classes that the rest of us had to take. What a slap in the faces of our founding fathers, veterans and everyone else who helped build this great nation. She’s such an ignorant twit.

    See I wasn’t entirely sure on the functions of the federal government but I was aware that the state level government takes care of all the things she mentioned. Didn’t this idiot supposedly graduate college me with a high school education having a better grasp on how the government works than an elected official makes me wonder wtf does a college education even mean? Clearly 80% of degrees are so general they don’t mean a damn thing when it comes to putting them to actual use. I say we investigate all the countries colleges do a data collection of the graduates and their degrees then do a percentage of those who actually got degrees that could be applied to a real life career. Then based on the percentages whichever college deals in useless degrees gets it funding reduced or no longer received a single penny of federal funding. When did it become acceptable to waste federal money on frivalous bullshit and for people capable of providing a service to society being allowed to laze about on their asses and collect welfare.

    Or how about the $100 billion a year at the expense of the American taxpayers to support the illegal immigrants can go towards tuition, teacher pay and their pensions and/or anything else that Americans, immigrants that came here the right way need? How about our veterans? The VA is a wreck! For every illegal getting free healthcare our vets are dying while waiting on a list from the VA. If we have homeless children in the streets, we shouldn’t be supporting illegals. $5.7 billion is a fraction of what illegals steal from us every day. I’m not against immigration, just do it right. Thats all we Americans ask.

    To the extent that she thinks at all, she thinks locally and acts globally. I think she’s got that backward.

    She’s a stupid Valley Girl in a ridiculously extended adolescence who won a district in New York by 17,000 votes, running against an old white guy who didn’t even bother to mount much of a campaign, in a predominantly Hispanic neighborhood with not one but TWO Latino surnames. So she’s got a mandate to overthrow the government and can’t wait to get on with it.

    Most discouraging to me is the number of democrats who discussed changing the Constitution in order to allow her to run for president. She slept through sixth-grade CIvics class, and now she is going to tell us all how to live.
