Young congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just can’t seem to catch a break.
Perhaps that’s because she hasn’t taken a break from plotting to overturn America with her unfathomable Green New Deal.
The Democrat representative from New York got mocked again by giant billboards in Times Square on Wednesday after getting blasted by billboards there a week before. The new billboards focused on the “get rid of farting cows” line in Ocasio-Cortez’ Green New Deal FAQ as well as the estimated price tag on her unfathomable plan.
“Hey, AOC, the Green New Deal Stinks,” one billboard said.
“Maybe it’s those farting cows? LOL. Cost of GND = $51,000,000,000,000. (Now that’s a lot of zeros)” another one reads.
“If this Green Raw Deal is enacted, you can kiss the American dream goodbye,” JNC President and CEO Alfredo Ortiz commented.
“Small business owners are successful in America due to our country’s commitment to free-market policies,” he added. “The socialist policies in Ocasio-Cortez’s plan have no place in America.”
A week earlier, JNC blasted Ocasio-Cortez for helping discourage Amazon from building the massive second headquarters in the Bronx.
“25,000 lost NYC jobs. $4 billion in lost wages. $12 billion in lost economic activity in NY. Thanks for nothing, AOC!” the billboard read.
Ortiz said at the time, “The Amazon pullout is a perfect example of what we’ve been saying: socialism takes and capitalism creates. The economic consequences of Amazon’s pullout is just a small taste of the harm that is to come if Ocasio-Cortez’s anti-business canon comes to fruition and is made federal policy.”
Amazon, which would have brought a huge economic boost for the area, wrote in a statement that “While polls show that 70% of New Yorkers support our plans and investment, a number of state and local politicians have made it clear that they oppose our presence and will not work with us to build the type of relationships that are required to go forward with the project we and many others envisioned in Long Island City.”
