Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is getting attention for all the wrong reasons.
She’s quick to let the nation know what she’s thinking, yet, 11 times out of 10 it’s evident she has no clue about what she speaks.
Now, AOC has a plan to change gun and immigration laws in the United States without the help of Congress.
Are you ready for this?
Here we go…
From The Blaze:
Now, according to Politico, Ocasio-Cortez and other progressive lawmakers plan to use similar tactics to advance their anti-Second Amendment agenda and circumvent the legislative process.
Ocasio-Cortez and her allies are joining veteran Democratic lawmakers to try to “shame” America’s massive financial institutions “into taking a stand on some of the country’s most divisive issues: climate change, gun violence and immigration,” Politico reported.
The lawmakers are leveraging seats on the powerful House Financial Services Committee and a huge following on social media to confront finance industry executives and discourage them from funding oil pipelines, firearms makers and private prison companies that operate immigration detention centers. Like-minded activist groups are helping amplify the message.
Ocasio-Cortez noted, “There’s more than one way to skin a cat, and not everything has to be done through legislation explicitly. We can also use the tools that we have here to pressure change in other ways as well.”
She also sent the following tweet:
Huge update: JP Morgan & Wells Fargo have announced that they will no longer fund private prisons.
How did this happen? Through organizing people & public pressure!
Everyday folks began paying attention to who was funding for-profit prisons & family separation,+ acted on it. https://t.co/cWS5ObW7ua

The country’s largest organized labor group is telling AOC that her “Green New Deal” is bad news for America.
From Daily Wire:
The AFL-CIO, America’s largest organized-labor group, slammed socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) Green New Deal in a letter to her and Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA), stating that the far-left plan could “cause immediate harm to millions of our members and their families.”
“We welcome the call for labor rights and dialogue with labor, but the Green New Deal resolution is far too short on specific solutions that speak to the jobs of our members and the critical sections of our economy,” the letter from the AFL-CIO Energy Committee states. “It is not rooted in an engineering-based approach and makes promises that are not achievable or realistic.”
“We will not accept proposals that could cause immediate harm to millions of our members and their families,” the letter continued. “We will not stand by and allow threats to our members’ jobs and their families’ standard of living go unanswered.”
“We will not accept proposals that could cause immediate harm to millions of our members and their families.”

Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal,” if somehow passed by Congress, was thought to have cost U.S. taxpayers tens of trillions of dollars.
A new report suggests the real number could nearly hit $100 trillion.
That would come to, roughly, $650,000 per American household.
