Hollywood, get off your keisters and join Jane Fonda in Washington.
jerry: All the reporters love AOC... The people? Not so much. 18000 people in the Bronx voted for her out of 250000 eligible voters. Only 26000 voted. Hardly a mandate or a landslide. Hardly anyone in her district of a quarter million even bothers to vote. The reporters love her. The media loves her. Reason enough right there for me to look away. She should resign and sell skin care products. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ================================== Her district, NY 14th, has gone Democrat every year since 1993. Yet what has it gotten them? Over 50% are on food stamps (12% is the national average). Over 30% are collecting welfare. Over 30% live below the poverty line (16% is the national average). 11% of this district is on disability and 9% are unemployed (4% is the national average). High school graduation rates are about 75% (vs 85% national average) with less than 25% college graduation rates (vs 60% national average). Somehow this district believed a young, former waitress with no political experience is their best bet to represent their interests in Washington? Do they not realize the system has been failing them for years? Amazon is coming there. They got a tax break and going to hire 25000 workers, Yahoo wants the same deal and is bringing 10000 jobs. She says she doesn't want that for her district. Says they should not get a tax break. She doesn't understand economics. The revenue from all those jobs and the benefits of renewing her district is amazing
