New York Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez naively thought she hit Republicans with a checkmate on the debt ceiling debate before being smacked down by Texas Republican Chip Roy.
“They are accusing Democrats of saying we spend too much,” the New York representative said.
“For anyone that wants to entertain that thought, I ask you to think about the last time a person said has said in this country that the government does too much for them, that their social security check was too high, that teachers are paid too much,” AOC continued.
However, Ocasio-Cortez wasn’t prepared for Roy’s answer.
“My friend from New York, Ms. Ocasio-Cortez, said, ‘I ask you to think about the last time a person has said in this country that the government does too much for them. When was the last time anyone has heard or seen that'” he said, quoting the Congresswoman.
“I’ll say it right here. I don’t want the government doing most of the things that the government is doing to interfere with the ability of the American people to carry out their lives,” he said. “Federal state and local.”
“When was the last time you had a bureaucrat show up and you said, ‘Oh joy, thank you. I’m really glad there’s a bureaucrat here?'” he said.
“When was the last time you were thankful for 32 trillion dollars in debt, a hundred thousand dollars almost for every man, woman, and child in America? Anybody thankful for 32 trillion dollars in debt? Anybody thankful for a border that’s wide open being exploited by cartels while fentanyl comes in and kills our children?”
“Anybody thankful for that Department of Homeland Security that doesn’t actually secure the Homeland? Anybody thankful for an FBI that went after Scott Smith and labeled him a domestic terrorist for daring to defend his daughter in a school board meeting because she was assaulted in a bathroom?” he said.
“We have a government that is weaponized against the American people and is undermining our liberties, and they want more of it,” he said, referring to Democrats.
“My colleagues on the other side of the aisle want more government. They want more taxes; they want more spending, they want more bureaucrats knocking on your door.”
After her grilling from Chip Roy on the debt ceiling, things only got worse for AOC when she returned to New York.
As The Daily Fetched reported:
Ocasio-Cortez’s town hall meeting in the Orona neighborhood of Queens became chaotic as New Yorkers expressed frustration with Democrat policies putting illegal migrants before American citizens.
New Yorkers were angry about the border crisis, the debt ceiling, and billions in military aid to Ukraine.
New Yorkers disrupted the event and began heckling AOC.
One man shouted, “American citizens before migrants,” as he held American flags, as seen on Freedom News TV.
Meanwhile, some supporters booed at the angry New Yorkers as security personnel escorted the man away from the event.
