Democrats continue to think the federal government can just continue to write blank checks without repercussion.
Even though the first lockdown in this country decimated small business owners and the economy, even with the government paying people, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez wants to do it again.
Her “suggestion” brought Nikki Haley out from hiding, who obliterated AOC for her ridiculous suggestion.
Just Pay Them
Democrats have never been fiscally responsible, but what they are suggesting now is just pure lunacy.
AOC thinks the government should be paying people to stay home again, something we clearly cannot afford to do.
That approach was tried once already and it put tens of thousands of small business owners at risk, with a second wave all but ensuring they would have to close their doors forever.
Nikki Haley, who has been keeping a rather low profile during the election, chose to go after AOC on this…
AOC, Are you suggesting you want to pay people to stay home from the money you take by defunding the police? Or was that for the student debts you wanted to pay off, the Green New Deal or Medicare for All? #WhereIsTheMoney https://t.co/wZxxz67wcv

Haley’s points were all correct, but Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) also made a great point…
The sad part isn’t a Congresswoman saying this. The sad part is so many people enthusiastically agreeing with it.
Our real crisis is a cultural one.
Helplessness, victimhood, and a misplaced sense of entitlement to the services of others. We must reverse this. https://t.co/apuGMit2V7

AOC did not like getting called out and did a little pushback of her own.
She stated, “Republicans are mad at this when they literally just voted to do just this in March. The reason they’re opposed to it now is because last time they got a Wall Street bailout and this time all that’s left is helping working people, the disabled, the poor, etc.,”
Ironically, it is Wall Street that is backing Joe Biden, not Donald Trump.
She also ignores the fact that Republicans tried to pass a $1.8 trillion stimulus already, but Dems decided to go for it all in the hopes of Biden winning the election as well as taking back the Senate so they could spend whatever they want.
The very money she is begging for now could have already been in bank accounts if Pelosi was not playing hardball.
Now, the likelihood of any deal being done before the end of the year grows less and less with each passing day.
Most pundits now believe Pelosi and company will just hold off on any bill so Biden can write them a blank check in January.
