Ocasio-Cortez Fires Back at Ivanka Trump Over ‘Green New Deal’ Criticism

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez fired back at Ivanka Trump over her criticism of the ‘Green New Deal’ and it’s false promises of guaranteed jobs and good wages.

The Democratic socialist’s plan includes a promise to provide “a job with a family-sustaining wage, family and medical leave, vacations, and retirement security” along with “economic security for all who are unable or unwilling to work.”

The First Daughter took umbrage with the notion that Americans prefer handouts as opposed to earning their way through life.

“I don’t think most Americans, in their heart, want to be given something, she countered.  “I’ve spent a lot of time traveling around this country over the last 4 years. People want to work for what they get.”

She pinpointed the criticism even further in a follow-up tweet, saying “I do not … believe in a minimum guarantee for people ‘unwilling to work.'”

And while the daughter of a rich entrepreneur might not be the ideal vessel for such a message, Ivanka isn’t wrong by any stretch.

Ocasio-Cortez Fires Back

Ocasio-Cortex, however, as in most cases, seemed rather confused about the notion of working for what you earn.

 

Imagine that!

Ocasio-Cortez would also argue that a minimum wage is a right that should be afforded all people, even apparently those unwilling to work.

“A living wage isn’t a gift, it’s a right,” she said, citing her career as a bartender. “Workers are often paid far less than the value they create.”

The second half of that statement may be true in some cases, but certainly not all. The first half of that statement is such a ridiculous concept that only someone with a $93 trillion plan to save the world within 12 years could possibly find it truthful.

 

Ivanka Reminds Her That Jobs Market Is Pretty Good

Ocasio-Cortez’ fascination with burdening the economy by providing guaranteed jobs seems slightly misguided considering the market is humming along like a fine-tuned machine.

“I think fundamentally if you ask yourself the question, ‘are we better today than we were yesterday or we were 2 years ago?’ The answer is, undoubtedly, yes,” Ivanka said.

Things are, by nearly every measure, better for people actually willing to work. The New York Democrat represents those who want free handouts. Which group is more representative of American’s hard work and ingenuity?

Perhaps that’s why she’s so confused. She can only relate to people that want things handed to them.
