AOC slams corporate bailouts in stimulus package

"There should be shame about what was fought for in this bill and the choices that we have to make." Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez railed against the “corporate bailouts” in the coronavirus stimulus package.

AOC Shames Corporate Shenanigans

Who is AOC?

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was born on October 13, 1989 in the Bronx to an architect and a Puerto Rican immigrant. She graduated cum laude from Boston University with a major in international relations and economics in 2011. During her college years, her father died of lung cancer and she interned for Senator Ted Kennedy. After graduation, she worked as a bartender and waitress while also launching a publishing firm and working for the National Hispanic Institute. She travelled cross country in 2016 as a Bernie Sanders presidential campaign organizer, which attracted the attention of Brand New Congress, a campaign for progressive candidates interested in electing representatives who represented their values.

Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign against incumbent Representative Joe Crowley for the New York Democratic 14th congressional district Representative nomination shocked the nation when she defeated him by almost 15 percentage points despite him spending over 18 times what she did. She slowly gained internet recognition and ended up winning the seat with 78 percent of the vote. At the age of 29, she is the youngest woman ever to serve in the United States Congress. She is currently on the committees for financial service, and oversight and government reform. Her first piece of legislation, a joint non-binding resolution with Senator Ed Markey, was the Green New Deal in 2019 which outlines a 10-year economic plan to phase out fossil fues and overhauling transportation methods.

What’s currently going on in the House?

Currently the House is working on a coronavirus stimulus package. AOC and Senator Bernie Sanders have both condemned the $2 trillion bill for bailing out large corporations and expanding the income inequality gap. However, they support the more socialist aspects of the bill like giving more money to smaller businesses, unemployed citizens, and the average middle class adult. The bill passed in the House of Representatives, unanimously approved by the Senate, and President Trump signed the emergency bill into law on March 27.

    All you stupid millennial sheep believing dem leftist lies better run and cower under your bed because you yes YOU have a real man who is POTUS and not a politician. A wealthy successful businessman who stepped up to the plate and is showing you how it's done is going to save all your lazy butts too. Love him or hate him he is your president and will continue to be till 2024 so get used to it.

    Sad that small business is going to have to pay it back if it was used for paying employees. But BIG business like Airlines & big Hotel get to keep it no matter what 😡😢🎊 sad day in America
