Candace Owens destroyed an insane scheme Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is pushing.
Her radical plan would cost millions of Americans their jobs.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s socialism got ripped apart with these nine words.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez threw a fit when Senate Parliamentarian Elizabeth MacDonough ruled that minimum wage shouldn’t be included in the massage spending package that Democrats have labeled “COVID-19 relief.”
MacDonough ruled that raising the minimum wage didn’t fit the guidelines for budget reconciliation, which is the only way for Democrats to pass bills with their slim majority without working with Republicans.
On Tuesday night, Ocasio-Cortez tweeted, “It is utterly embarrassing that ‘pay people enough to live’ is a stance that’s even up for debate. Override the parliamentarian and raise the wage. McD’s workers in Denmark are paid $22/hr + 6 wks paid vacation. $15/hr is a deep compromise — a big one, considering the phase in.”
Ocasio-Cortez clearly didn’t bother to research that statement before she posted.
The Daily Mail responded to Ocasio-Cortez by reporting Denmark’s law, noting, “Denmark does not have a federally mandated minimum wage. Instead it has a strong trade union presence where individual industries and workers negotiate fair salaries on a sector-by-sector basis.”
Denmark also “has one of the highest tax rates in the world, with the average Dane paying a total of 45% in income taxes.” USA Today pointed out.
The per-capita income in the United States is also virtually the same as in Denmark despite the fact that America has 330 million people and takes in a large amount of immigrants while Denmark has 6 million and has closed its doors to poor immigrants.
Author Candace Owens ripped on Ocasio-Cortez comment’s, suggesting, “We should give her the Nobel prize in economics.”
Owens, speaking on Fox News’ “Hannity,” said, “I will say this. With AOC you never let facts get in the way of a good story. You know what I mean? That is her motto. Personally, I think we should give her the Nobel prize in economics. If we’ve got Andrew Cuomo winning an Emmy for his coronavirus briefings, despite the fact that he was allowing people to die, why not award AOC the Nobel prize in economics.”
The Congressional Budget Office warned that raising the minimum wage to $15 would destroy 1.4 million jobs.
“Young, less educated people would account for a disproportionate share of those reductions in employment,” the CBO adds.
While many people struggle living on a minimum wage salary it will make their lives worse to have no job at all.
If getting people out of poverty could be achieved by one simple fix the majority of people would agree with Ocasio-Cortez but the real world is far more complex than Ocasio-Cortez is capable of understanding.
