AOC Says GOP ‘Greed & Incompetence’ Will ‘Get People Killed’ As Democrats Block Aid To U.S. Workers

(Breitbart) – Far-left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on Sunday declared the bipartisan coronavirus economic relief package as “corrupt” and proclaimed that the GOP’s “greed & incompetence is going to get people killed” as Senate Democrats blocked aid to millions of American workers.

“GOP *refusing to increase $ for hospitals,* but HAVE increased corporate bailout $,” Ocasio-Cortez said on Monday. “The Senate GOP plan is corrupt.”

“Their greed & incompetence is going to get people killed. Others will be displaced, or unable to eat. They‘re holding our country hostage for a Wall St payday,” she added.

Democrats blocked the emergency package on Sunday, which fell 13 votes short of advancing. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) suggested the negotiations in the Senate were “doing just fine” until House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) interfered.

As Breitbart News reported:

An angry Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) slammed Democrats for voting against the bill and blamed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for nixing bipartisan negotiations over a coronavirus package.

“I want everybody to fully understand if we aren’t able to act tomorrow, it will be because of our colleagues on the other side continuing to dicker when the country expects us to come together and address the problem,” the Senate leader said on Sunday.

McConnell added that there was bipartisan consensus among “regular members of the Senate, not in the Leadership office, not in the speaker’s office for goodness sakes.”

“She’s the Speaker of the House, not the Speaker of the Senate,” he added. “We were doing just fine until that intervention.”

Both sides have since reached an impasse as Pelosi and Schumer are, demonstratively, heeding the advice of Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC), who urged caucus members to view the aid package as a “tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit our vision” during a conference call last week.

McConnell met with Schumer, Pelosi, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on Sunday. During that meeting, the House speaker reportedly “pushed a ‘laundry list’ of demands” that had little to nothing to do with economic relief needed as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

Politico reported:

Pelosi pushed a “laundry list” of demands at that meeting, according to a GOP official, including a proposal to wipe off $10,000 from anyone who owns federal student loans, as well as election-security funding. The Republicans countered those issues were not germane to the stimulus debate; Democrats say they have insisted these matters needed to be discussed all along.

While Republican lawmakers are scrambling to seal a deal to provide relief to the American people, a GOP aide also told Politico that Democrats are continuing in their attempts to “add a host of unrelated measures to the coronavirus package, including expanding collective bargaining power for unions, increased fuel emission standards for airlines and more wind and solar tax credits.”

  1. AOC is good at money matters after all she saved NYC $3B
    in economic incentives, BUT killed 25,000 jobs paying about $150,000 losing a total of $3.75 B IN INCOME.

  2. If the shoe fits, wear it, you Ignorant Witch!

    Everyday I pray for protection from YOU and your Coven! Everyday I pray for YOU and your cronies to get the Karmic payback you so richly deserve!

    Trump4eva!!!

  3. Let me get this right… The Demoncrats are blocking a coronavirus stimulus bill, but the GOP is getting people killed? Is she high, or just stupid?

    • She belongs in a mental institution. So I guess this would mean she is not just stupid but totally insane. News media should block her and refuse to cover any of BS. I guess the saying is true: Go to a bar and tell your troubles to the bartender to a resolution to the problem however wrong it may be.

    • That wasn’t the Army corps of engineers in NYC but DSNY dressed in Camo making Triple Time

  4. American voters must put Pelosi and Schumer in their place by voting Republican in November. We have put up with their nonsense long enough.

  5. With the stupidity that spews from her mouth, no wonder she ran for a democrat senate seat. The place she was bartendering was probably losing patrons based on the crap she was uttering. At least surrounded by democrats in Congress, she would feel right at home.

  6. What does it say about me that I dream of this woman being by a meteor while filming a press conference…..smoking hole and all.

  7. A. (Absolutely-with no qualification, restriction, or limitation; totally)
    O.(Officious -assertive of authority in an annoyingly domineering way, especially with regard to petty or trivial matters – intrusively enthusiastic in offering help or advice; interfering.)
    C.(The word is an extremely vulgar slang word for female genitals or a woman in general. Outside the U.S. and Canada, the term is sometimes used as a slightly less taboo insult for a stupid or unpleasant woman.
    Just a real good definition for AOC.

  8. AOC dumb woman voted in by dumb
    Voters. The Democratic Party is doomed
    To extinction. 3 1/2 years of hatred has
    Numbed their senses. If there is one
    intelligent Congressman. He is a coward
    afraid of crossing the party leaders.
    Please give up and go home where you
    might do some good like weeding and cutting grass. Make sure your children can’t see the yellow streak down your back. The garter is the worst.

  9. Hospitals and Medical industry rips off the Americans everyday, every waking hour. The biggest cash hogs year round! They make their own bailouts! F them
