If Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) isn’t ticking somebody off she probably doesn’t sleep well at night.
That seems to be her modus operandi.
Check out the reaction from two military veterans who left a meeting with the freshman lawmaker…
From New York Post:
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez bashed US foreign policy during a private meeting with Bronx community leaders, prompting two military veterans to storm out.
“She knocks the country, she knocks the president. And that’s not what America is about,” said Silvio Mazzella, a Vietnam War vet and treasurer of Community Board 11.
Anthony Vitaliano — an Army veteran who worked in the NYPD for 38 years, and commanded the Bronx’s homicide detectives — was sitting between Ocasio-Cortez and a staffer for the freshman Dem.
“I just couldn’t hear her BS anymore,” the former CB11 chairman said. “I just got up, got my umbrella in my hand and walked right out.”
AOC held the closed-door meeting with about a dozen members of the board on Wednesday night, marking a rare visit to the Bronx part of her district.
Ocasio-Cortez’s latest defense of the struggling Department of Veterans Affairs proves, beyond all doubt, that she is too far gone.
One person even noted that AOC is “disconnected from reality.”
From Free Beacon:
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) reinforced her opposition to reforming the Department of Veterans Affairs on Saturday, calling it a “myth” that the system was broken and in need of reform.
Ocasio-Cortez pledged at a town hall a week ago that she would fight bipartisan efforts to reform the scandal-plagued VA health system.
“If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” she said in remarks reported on by the Washington Free Beacon last week. “The idea that this thing that isn’t broken, this thing that provides the highest quality care to our veterans somehow needs to be fixed, optimized, tinkered with until you don’t even recognize it anymore.”
Ocasio-Cortez acknowledged the criticism her opposition to VA reform had received, but doubled down on her defense of the status quo at the agency, according to video of the Queens town hall captured by America Rising.
AOC is scary and so disconnected from reality
The VA isn’t being starved of funds.
How is it possible that @AOC has this so completely wrong?
Only explanation is that she’s lying. The VA lacks ZERO funding. ZERO. They have more money than they know what to do with.
Her intelligence is a myth.
As a disabled veteran who lives in constant debilitating pain, I can say with 100% certainty that the VA is a disgrace. It took over a year for me to be put into “physical therapy” after having my spine fused, and they literally gave up because I didnt show improvement.
They want us to believe it’s all fine and dandy because this is what “Medicare for all” will likely be similar to.
