The following article, FLASHBACK: Prominent Investor Rips ‘Financially Illiterate’ AOC, Says She Should Be Voted Out, was first published on Flag And Cross.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) was a major player in making sure Amazon did not build a new headquarters in her home state.
Potentially 25,000 jobs were lost along with billions upon billions in revenue.
Now, a prominent investor is ripping AOC to shreds for a number of reasons.
He even suggests she needs to be educated or voted out of office.
In other words, he’s fed up with the freshman Democrat Socialist – just like so many other people around the country.
From Daily Wire:
Tracy Maitland, president and chief investment officer of Advent Capital Management, blasted socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) at the National Action Network gathering — where Ocasio-Cortez was widely criticized for using an accent while talking to the predominantly black audience — over her lack of financial knowledge and even said she may need to be removed from office.
Maitland noted, “The people campaigning against the Amazon campus are financially illiterate.”
When the event ended, Maitland added, “This was a disgrace. I partially blame AOC for the loss of Amazon. She doesn’t know what she doesn’t know. That’s scary. We have to make sure she’s better educated or vote her out of office.”
Ocasio-Cortez led the charge against Amazon which ended up costing New York 25,000 jobs and nearly $30 billion in tax revenue. She later exploded at critics who correctly noted that she had no idea what she was talking about when it came to the Amazon deal. Both Democrat New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and Democrat New York Governor Andrew Cuomo slammed her for ruining the deal.
Ocasio-Cortez has made some statements of late that caused a group to put billboards up in New York City slamming the freshman lawmaker.
AOC was not pleased.
For example, here’s the first one…

AOC saw the first billboard. She figured she had to respond.
She sent a tweet calling the sign “wack”:
Few things effectively communicate the power we’ve built in fighting dark money & anti-worker policies like billionaire-funded groups blowing tons of cash on wack billboards (this one is funded by the Mercers).
(PS fact that it’s in Times Sq tells you this isn’t for/by NYers.) https://t.co/B4QTPi1r2k

The people behind the billboard then saw AOC’s response.
They decided to go after her a second time…

Now, Job Creators Network is back for thirds after AOC recently declared that she is “the boss”…
From BizPac Review:
A conservative, pro-business group unveiled the digital billboards mocking the 29-year-old progressive darling nicknamed “AOC” for her initials and her comments made during a February town hall event in which she touted herself as “the boss.”
“Hey AOC, you’re the ‘boss?’” read one billboard on the side of a skyscraper in Manhattan while another below it read, “We don’t think so. The American people are the boss.”

About that “boss” comment…
AOC: “I’m at least trying and they’re not. If you’re trying, you’ve got all the power, you’re driving the agenda, you’re doing all this stuff.”
“Like, I just introduced Green New Deal two weeks ago and it’s creating all of this conversation. Why? Because no one else is even trying — because no one else has even tried!”
“I’m like you try! You do it! Cuz you’re not!”
“So until you do it, I’M THE BOSS! How about that?”
