Vox: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s “lightning round” on money in politics goes viral

I think she is exactly the representative we need in Washington.  Other elected officials should be taking notes (and they are!).

Showboating.

She asked the questions, which were answered. That's for the record. The rest was for the camera.

She didn't trick anyone into admitting anything they wouldn't have had to answer anyway.

Regardless of her politics, she is one smart lady.  Running rings around most others.

The “genius” doesn’t want Amazon to bring 25K jobs to Queens

AOC obviously would never qualify to get one of those high paid jobs.

I don't think people realized they were supporting the elimination of airplanes when they voted for her.  But I assume eventually she will admit wanting to eliminate cars too, so the people in the bike thread should be happy about that.  ::)

If they eliminate planes we can close LaGuardia and our property values will increase. AOC truly is a genius.

it will certainly soothe the nerves of dozens of posters on this board if that happens.

AOC has her inaugural address in the Bronx. She speaks about how Queens deserves better than a miserly 25k+ jobs that pay an average of 150k from Amazon. Scraps from the Amazon table? Has AOC ever paid any significant income taxes? no. Has she ever created one job? No way She still goes around telling people that now NYC can invest the $3billion it was going to give Amazon in Queens. Except that $3 billion doesn’t exist. Very sad that a neo communist has taken over the Democratic Party.

What I don't understand is that both our Mayor and Governor said that for every $1 of subsides to Amazon would generate $9 return to both the City & State or $27 Billion Dollars.  Imagine what the State & City could do with $27 Billion Dollars.  I'm at a loss at understanding the opposition against Amazon.  The City & State weren't actually writing a check to Amazon for $3 Billion but offering tax incentives over a period of decades.  The Politicians who opposed Amazon are beyond irresponsible and incompetent and have done enormous damage to NYC.  They having nothing to be proud of and neither do those individuals who opposed Amazon.  You did absolutely no harm to Amazon who sent you a message that they don't need a presence in NYC.

Jackson Heights Post:

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez to Open Jackson Heights Office in March

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the newly sworn in representative of the 14th District, will be opening a Jackson Heights district office next month.

Ocasio-Cortez’s office will be located in the Bruson Building at 74-09 37th Ave., about eights blocks from where her predecessor Joseph Crowley operated from.

She anticipates opening the office on Monday, March 4, a representative from her office said at the Community Board 1 meeting on Tuesday.
