Ocasio-Cortez Outraged That Republicans Will Vote on HER OWN Bill

If you ever play poker, you’ve probably seen this scenario unfold a time or two. A player in love with their own mastery of the game pushes a bunch of chips into the center of the table, only to be immediately called by the person on their left. When the two flip their cards, it is revealed that the first player had nothing and the calling player had something lame like a high pair…but still enough to take the pot. At this point, the bluffing player might go on a rant about terrible donks and mathematical odds and even “idiots from Northern Europe,” depending on his predilections. It’s embarrassing, but it happens.

But even though the bluffing player may be right about the wisdom of calling a huge push with a single pair, the fact remains that players do that sometimes. Maybe it’s because they aren’t very good, maybe it’s just because they had a read on the bluffer. And maybe it’s because they just wanted to have a little fun and take a big risk. Maybe they thought that seeing the look on the other player’s face would add enough expected value to the pot to make it worth the unfavorable odds.

Whatever the case, the outrage is usually the same, and it’s the same kind of outrage we detected from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez this week when she learned that GOP Senate leader Mitch McConnell was bringing her Green New Deal up for a floor vote.

“The GOP’s whole game of wasting votes in Congress to target others ‘on the record’, for legislation they have no intent to pass, is a disgrace,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted on Sunday. “Stop wasting the American peoples’ time + learn to govern. Our jobs aren’t for campaigning, & that’s exactly what these bluff-votes are for.”

How rich. It is a “disgrace” and a waste of the American peoples’ time for McConnell to bring the Green New Deal up for a vote? Then what was it when you wasted our time coming up with the legislation in the first place? Is that what your New York constituents sent you to Washington to do? Write bills that would embarrass the climate change movement, bring shame down on the Democrats, and stand absolutely no chance whatsoever of being passed into law? That seems like a pretty strange use of taxpayer time and money, but then, Ocasio-Cortez is an expert on strange uses of those two.

“Just a good old-fashioned, state-planned economy. Garden-variety 20th-century socialism,” McConnell said of the Green New Deal recently. “Our Democratic colleagues have taken all the debunked philosophies of the last hundred years, rolled them into one giant package, and thrown a little ‘green’ paint on them to make them look new.”

And now he’s going to make them go on the record. They apparently plan to protest by voting “present” and whining about it on social media.

Bluff called.

    • Of course she is Wayne Miller— She is a Democrat, Socialist, Communist flunky. Do you think that she will spread her wealth around? No chance!

    • Omar, kotex are all maxipad duplicates. All mouth and nothing else, so they keep alive their r stupid agendas. Force them all to resign or throw them out.

    • Totally agree she is a complete moron and hypocrite. She says it’s a waste of time to vote on the Green New Deal a plan that she helped draft. Hopefully the people that voted for her finally realize what an idiot they elected and don’t vote for her again. I can’t believe that someone this stupid and clueless got elected.

      • You CAN’T fix STUPID!!! As an “alleged” ECON grad from Boston College, her Alma Mater must be PROUD of their distinguished graduate! At least NO ONE can accuse her parents of “Bribing” her way to college!!!!!!

    • OMG this poor little ignorant CHILD doesn’t realize she’s playing with the BUG BIYS and GIRLS who are, and will be, a whole lot more intelligent than she can ever hope to be. What an embarrassment she is…..to herself and whatever ‘party’ she is representing!
      Every single time she opens her mouth, she outdoes the last outlandish, and stupid, thing she said. It’s like she just uses ‘talking points’ that mean absolutely nothing, to embarrasses herself further! It is a pity that the people who voted for her didn’t have much more intelligence than she thought she had! I doubt whether she will be around much longer, what with the apparent criminal investigation on misuse of campaign funds that’s being undertaken? She could end up in the hoosegow?! VERY SAD……N O T!

      • What do you expect when only an 11.5% of the voting populace show up to vote, nothing but dregs…bottom feeder…insensate, God complex. She speaks to herself, of course she can’t understand herself due to the echo in her empty head….

  1. In my opinion, AOC is a complete idiot. But she does provide entertainment value, similar to when as kids, we went to the movie theater to watch cartoons.

    • I kinda wonder if she ever sees these blogs? Would be nice so she can see that the rest of us are not fooled by who & what she is. She needs to see and realize that she’s not liked and or respected by a large percentage of America. So she needs to see that all her efforts are futile.

      Trump in 2020………Libtards need not apply.

  2. she’s as in love with herself as much as baby butcher beto is with himself. Neither of them as any idea how disgusting they are. (Oh Beto…how long did it take you to stump break that cow?)

    • Beto needs to have his teeth fixed. When he talks, it’s hard to focus on what he is saying cause of his teeth. Creeps me out.

    • Minimum wage is too much. Give her a cup and a kazoo, and let her walk around DC collecting handouts. She couldnt pour water out of a shoe if the instructions were written on the heel!

    • Please don’t call her a fool that will put ur soul in Jeopardy just saying it’s in the Bible don’t call people fools that is God himself is the only one that can do that. and he has a lot of to do. I use to say that myself. I’ve caught myself many a time about to say that

  3. All we ever hear from the left are words of contempt, hatred about President Trump’s policies and in most cases; people hate to listen to nasty politics. It’s a subject that invokes tales of lies and dishonesty from our political leaders, and all the people who relate to the anti-American philosophy. AOC is not an American, she’s a joke.

  4. Consider this. . . your daughter is dating.

    You’re not a perfect father and you know you have faults, and one day you start to fear that someone you love and respect, (your daughter) is starting to date, and strangers are coming to your home. Your attitude changes and you want to protect her and your family, right?

    The day finally arrives, and you stand behind your front door, like a barrier and wait for the person to knock. The anticipation is exhausting and you start thinking, I should have installed a gate outside my home for added protection.

    Your nervous mind goes into overdrive. The anticipation of this person who you’ve never met will be laying his dirty hands on your daughter. Maybe even violating her, taking advantage of her. You reel back with fear and, in your mind, you’re going to frisk him at the front door before he enters, you’re going to ask the questions. “What do you want, what’s your intent? What do you do for a living? Where are you from?”

    Sounds like a typical reaction from a loving father trying to protect his daughter and his family. . . well, consider your daughter is vulnerable, and your home is where you live. Why is it so hard to understand, we need to protect our daughter, her name is America and your home is. . . well, you know.

    Build the Wall.

  5. The best way to handle stupidity is ignore it, instead we see her 20 times a day giving her hours and hours of free air time, to what end? Exposing the weird bill that, who knows who wrote it or for what purpose, she thinks that it’s terrible for it to be brought up for a vote because she is hoping for indoctrination to take effect first. Yes let us get past this ridiculous scheme and move on to something that is beneficial to us all !

    money. .WHY? What normal male, would be involved in dressing up like this, and pretend to be normal? Vote for ANY CATH0L1C and you vote for a traitor.

    • Wow. Why did you including CATHOLIC in there? Explain yourself on this. Anybody reading that could get the same point if that word was deleted. Are you now trying to aim at another religious group? Believe me, she’s no Catholic in her behavior.

    • Hey I’m A Catholic And I’ve Served This Republic For 27Years Man And Boy I You Should Be Ashamed Of Yourself One Of The Things I Won’t Stand For Is Some Scum Bag NAZI Bashing My Religion Because Of A Pack Of Liberals That Sold Their Souls For Power You Are No Better That They Are In Factv a Coward Like You Should Join T^hem GROW UP AND CHECK YOUR FACTS

    • Ooohhh…why the inclusion of Catholic, and why all CAPS? I think you may make some folks mad. Is AOC a Catholic? Are Socialists allowed to go to church?

  7. Cortez must be ashamed of her bill as most Congressman would be elated to get their bill brought up on the floor of the Senate of The United States of America. As far as your last name you are in America only one last name to be used per customer, when I’m in wherever you come from I’ll use your 17 last names gladly, “Manners, Manners, we should always have manners ”
    Young children should be seen and not heard, Doesn’t go for my 9 year old Granddaughter, as she is very bright.

  8. AOC why don’t you take your own advice. What did you think government was like? You don’t get everything your way, did you think that only Democrat’s are entitled to opinions and votes?

    • Terry, that’s exactly what she thought. She also thought that being in Congress would not involve actual work. And she thought that because she is “so cute and smart” the entire country would love her. Time for a reality check, Li’l Alex.

    • Terry, that’s exactly what she thought. She also thought that being in Congress would not involve actual work. She also thought because she is “so cute and smart” that the entire country would love her.

  9. Alex of the Occasional Coitus is certifiable, IMO. Perhaps she never event reached a state of “reality” in her education process. She certainly has parted with whatever she calls reality. Were “psychiatry” truly a science, I’d advise some treatment for the poor little under educated wench. (Sorry, but the demeaning is on purpose – in retaliation to that which streams from her mouth every breathing wakeful moment). Can’t believe her district actually voted her into office – must be some computer malfunction or fraud involved. I understand she was a bartender? Perhaps she should return to the bistro or bodega from whence she came? She’s almost as whacko as Uncle Bernie, FCS.

  10. I think these ignoranuses need to be called on their “stuff” every time it comes up. And let me correct
    Sen. McConnell – it goes as far back as the “Mayflower Contract” in the ‘New World’ (1620)… The Pilgrims all pledged to work for the ‘common good’ and failed to do that… until the winter of death by starvation and malnutrition at which time 60+% of the colonists died. The following Spring, their leader (name escapes me at the moment) divided the land into private plots and everything beyond their debts was theirs to keep, barter, or sell. That harvest time was bountiful and they held the ‘First Thanksgiving’ – celebrating with the local Indian tribe. We are talking just short of 400 years ago, and the democrats don’t know history and ignored current examples like Venezuela. Pathetic…

  11. cortez is a Nazi and a moron and a half wit hey cortez shut your lying mouth cortez are irrelevant to the American people and me you are getting a little of your own medicine you ignorant fool liberal scumbag clown puppet who is irrelevant to the American people and me.

  12. cortez is a Nazi moron clown puppet who is irrelevant to me and the American people she is to stupid to know she is stupid cortez shut your lying mouth you liberal crybaby scumbag clown puppet who is irrelevant to the American people.

  13. THIS IS A FIRST TIME ON HER ADULT LIFE, THAT SHE HAS A SECURED PAY CHECK AND WE ARE THE MORONS PAYING HER

  14. It’s hilarious that this empty head doesn’t know that EVERYONE is able to vote on ANY legislation brought up to Congress AND the USA citizens!
    She isn’t GOD! THANK GOD FOR THAT!!!
    Soros must be pulling his hair out over every moron he monetizes!

  15. She is a egotistical mental midget. Boston u should those it’s accreditation for giving a degree to such an obviously brain deficient moron

  16. OK,let me see if I have this right….Cortez proposes this “Green New Deal” and ignorantly thought that ONLY THE DEMOCRATS would be voting on the bill? Surely she can’t be that stupid….any bills propoesd need to be voted on by a joint-session all the political get to vote on it, not just the dems….perhaps Mz Cortez needs to go back to school and take a few gov’t , history and civics classes and actually pay attention this time around get a grade above a D- this time around

    • Did she learn the 3 branches of government yet or is she too busy doing pushup during meeting breaks to learn civic101?

  17. Time to take her to the big boy shed. She wants to try to pass real laws, lets hold her accountable for all the laws she has broken. Lock her up.

  18. What did you expect from a liberal college brat, intelligence ! like look you know just print more money, how dare you bring it up for a vote , just because I kind of you know wrote it, like you know, I thought of it you know, doesn’t that make it like already law! no need to vote, like maybe kind of it’s my idea, how dare you ask other people, I AM THE BOSS ! like yeah maybe like, like you know just raise the taxes, it doesn’t matter, you must obey me like maybe like yeah ‘I am the damn master here, um, um like you know . A.O.C. is the perfect poster idiot child on why parents should never send there minions to a liberal college, but you will always have a fool and there money, or maybe her mother paid Boston college to get her in, and out of the house! TRUMP 2020

    • Did she learn the 3 branches of government never mind the democratic processor is she too busy doing pushup on meeting breaks to read civic 101. Pathetic fool

  19. Heaven has a wall, pearly gates, and a strict immigration policy … hell on the other hand has wide open borders. We ARE going to have a wall on our southern border, but they can spend eternity without a wall if they choose to.

  20. Cortez is flippin’ out because she was under some delusional mind set that only the Democrats would be voting on “her bill” after all, she is a Democrat isn’t she????? Me thinks someone flunked history, civics, and gov’t classes while in high school, because if she had passed said classes, she would know that any bills proposed are voted on by all members of the house…not just the ones who are in the same political party as she is….granted she is quite entertaining maybe they should fire her from congress and she can go get a job as a comedy writer at Saturday Night Live…..after all she is from New York and remember………. :”Live from New York, it’s Saturday Night”

  21. OMG this poor little ignorant CHILD doesn’t realize she’s playing with the BUG BIYS and GIRLS who are, and will be, a whole lot more intelligent than she can ever hope to be. What an embarrassment she is…..to herself and whatever ‘party’ she is representing!
    Every single time she opens her mouth, she outdoes the last outlandish, and stupid, thing she said. It’s like she just uses ‘talking points’ that mean absolutely nothing, to embarrasses herself further! It is a pity that the people who voted for her didn’t have much more intelligence than she thought she had! I doubt whether she will be around much longer, what with the apparent criminal investigation on misuse of campaign funds that’s being undertaken? She could end up in the hoosegow?! VERY SAD……N O T!

  22. She is not a government alone. She is afraid she will be voted down and she deserves it. She is a lunatic and she along with her friends have no place in our country. They should have been refuged admittance.

  23. I am greatly offended of the use of the word “Catholic”. Satan is having his fun- he is laughing all the way to “Hell” with you crazy fools.
    Get OAC out of the government for the sanity of our country. Please take Omar along.
    Such “EVIL”.
    Do You know God created you? He created us to know, love and serve Him. Get Satan out of your lives.
