Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is one of the most controversial members of Congress.
But Ocasio-Cortez just made headlines for all the wrong reasons.
And that’s because Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez found something terrifying in her home.
Ocasio-Cortez’s expert use of social media fueled her political stardom.
Her tweets and live streams instantly go viral, giving her the ability to reach millions of Americans with the click of a button.
Donald Trump had mastered this art of communicating with fans and converting new followers through Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
But if you live by social media, you die by social media.
And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez humiliated herself with a live stream of her garbage disposal, saying that she found it “terrifying.”
“I am told this is a garbage disposal. I’ve never seen a garbage disposal. I never had one in any place I’ve ever lived. It is terrifying. I don’t know what it’s for, or what its purpose is. Like, food scraps? Like, is this environmentally sound?” Ocasio-Cortez told her live stream audience.

But what is truly terrifying are the socialist policies that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez votes for.
While she may play the fool on social media, Ocasio-Cortez is deadly serious about her vision of turning America into a failed Venezuela-like state—and she is a highly effective political activist.
Her latest command-and-control Soviet style economic scheme is a bill with socialist Senator Bernie Sanders that will cap the interest fees of credit cards to 15 percent.
“There is no reason a person should pay more than 15% interest in the United States. It’s common sense – in fact, we had these Usury laws until the 70s. (Max interest rates are record-high for ppl with excellent credit, too.) It’s a debt trap for working people + it has to end,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.
No one likes credit card interest fees.
But if banks are forced to charge uniformly lower interest rates, then Americans in the middle class or who work nontraditional jobs will no longer have access to loans as credit cards.
Banks will allow access only to Americans wealthy enough to spend large amounts of money on their cards to make up for the loss in interest fees credit card companies collect.
This amounted $113 billion in 2017.
American Bankers Association spokesman Jeff Sigmund told the Washington Post in a statement, “This specific proposal will only harm consumers by restricting access to credit for those who need it the most and driving them toward less regulated, more costly alternatives.”
This bill has no chance of passing the Republican-held Senate.
But Ocasio-Cortez and Sanders want the bill introduced now to inject it into the 2020 campaign as a talking point for what Democrats will do if they win power.
And should Sanders win the White House and Ocasio-Cortez steamroll this bill through Congress, it would help tank the economy as middle-income Americans are cut off from loans and credit cards, which will suck hundreds of billions of dollars out of the United States economy.
