If people like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez keep getting elected to Congress, things will get pretty rough very fast.
After AOC called cities to no longer recognize Columbus Day, one listened.
Well, one – for now.
From The Hill:
Officials in the city of Sandusky, Ohio, have decided that the city will no longer observe Columbus Day as a holiday, switching it for Election Day.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) has advocated for making the change nationally. And a November survey from Hill.TV and HarrisX polling company found that a majority of respondents favor making Election Day a federal holiday.
More from Sandusky Register:
Previously a paid vacation day, paid time off hours for Columbus Day now shift to Election Day, typically falling on the first Tuesday in November.
The new rule takes effect this year.
Ocasio-Cortez has a question about election day and Columbus Day she can’t seem to figure out on her own.
Not only is it ridiculous, but conservatives took notice.

How is Columbus Day a holiday but Election Day not?

Why do you need Election Day to be a holiday?

10 days on the job and you are already looking to manufacture more days off.

Ocasio-Cortez said that she couldn’t afford to land an apartment in DC until her Congressional paycheck kicked in.
“I have three months without a salary before I’m a member of Congress. So, how do I get an apartment? Those little things are very real.”
She apparently lied.
From Daily Wire:
As Fox News reports, “Records show she has more than enough to plunk down on an apartment in the U.S. capital.” Fox News adds that Ocasio-Cortez “reported having between $15,001 and $50,000 in her checking account as of the end of April 2018, according to a Financial Disclosure Report she submitted to the clerk of the U.S. House of Representatives. The financial disclosure also reveals that she has an investment account valued between $1,001 and $15,000.”
That minimum of $15,000 that Ocasio-Cortez had in the bank is 15 times the amount 57% of average Americans had in their savings, as USA Today reported in May 2018. USA Today stated, “The average American has less than $4,000 in savings, while 57% of U.S. adults have less than $1,000 to their names.”
Like all elected members of Congress, Ocasio-Cortez will earn $174,000 annually.
AOC knows exactly how to combat “climate change.”
It involves World War II.
Specifically, it involves the blueprint used by the allied forces to defeat the Nazis.
Maybe AOC should check out this report, in which a NASA scientist warns of strange solar activity and record cold.
Here’s an interview with Ocasio-Cortez where she claims capitalism won’t always exist:
