“Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-Bx./Qns.) can’t stop lying about the effects of her beloved progressive policies. She’s now stooped to circulating conspiracy theories alleging inflation is mere ‘propaganda,’ a smokescreen for greedy corporate stockholders. (This echoes an old Biden admin talking point, one so absurd even the prez and his flacks have abandoned it.) Keep in mind that thanks to President Biden’s ruinous economic policies, cumulative inflation is up 15% since he came into office, with the figure for food, mortgage, utilities and other essentials closer to 25%. AOC’s Bronx and Queens constituents are — unsurprisingly — not buying one word. ‘Is AOC crazy?’ asked The Bronx’s Latisha Law. ‘Has she been to a grocery store recently?’ … The median Bronx household income is about $44,000; AOC’s House job pays a juicy $174,000.” (09/11/23)
