AOC: 'No one ever makes a billion dollars. You take a billion dollars'
Fox news ^ | 1/21/2020 | Fox

Posted on 01/24/2020 7:38:35 AM PST by mikelets456

Ocasio-Cortez said billionaires make their money "off the backs" of "undocumented people," "black and brown people being paid under a living wage" and "single mothers."

She addressed a hypothetical "widget" billionaire in her remarks.

"You didn't make those widgets, did you? Because you employed thousands of people and paid them less than a living wage to make those widgets for you," Ocasio-Cortez said. "You didn't make those widgets. You sat on a couch while thousands of people were paid modern-day slave wages, and in some cases real modern-day slavery."

You didn’t make those tips AOC. You stole them out of the tip jar.

Has she ever sat down on camera to confront George Soros about currency manipulation and breaking economies?

Wow. She’s learning fast. She is studying the Democratic playbook. “You didn’t learn that”.

This is echoes of Obama: “You didn’t build that!”

Problem is: Lots in the masses believe this.

How about the line: “You sat on a couch while thousands of people were paid modern-day slave wages.”

How many business owners do you know that “sit on a couch.”

I’ll ask my brother who employs 65 people and pays their health insurance - how often he “sits on the couch” while his business “runs itself.”

He must be lying to me when he says he often puts in 70-hour weeks and often sleeps in his business b/c he’s too tired to drive home...

right. You definitely aren’t earning your pay, and you’re stealing from those donating to you.

Send ALL of the “undocumented” people back to their own countries so they can’t be exploited, for the children......

AOC got her education on economics by reading Scrooge
McDuck comics.

SMS...Scrooge McDuck Syndrome.
The belief that billionaires have swimming pools of
cash that they bathe in nightly.

She needs to take the advice Steve Mnuchin gave to mutant freak Greta Thunberg:

“After she goes and studies economics in college she can come back and explain that to us,” Mnuchin said.

AOC went to college, studied economics...Marxist economics!

Obviously, they ARE “living wages,” as they are rhetorically still alive.
