Ocasio-Cortez is uber dangerous for America…
Socialist Democrat darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claims solidarity with cab drivers all while her campaign buys rides from Uber and other like services. Her campaign took $4,000 worth of Uber rides alone.
Wow, what a stunningly stupid socialist who spouts nothing but meaningless blather. How ignorant are her constituents?
NYC’s fourth driver suicide. Yellow cab drivers are in financial ruin due to the unregulated expansion of Uber. What was a living wage job now pays under minimum.
– to call Uber drivers what they are: EMPLOYEES, not contractors
– Fed jobs guarantee

Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez was caught committing a pretty stunning act of hypocrisy over her campaign’s use of a service that she said was causing suicides.
Here’s what happened:
Ocasio-Cortez, the socialist democrat darling of the left, accused the ride-sharing app Uber of causing suicides among taxi cab drivers.
“NYC’s fourth driver suicide,” she tweeted in March, linking to an article. “Yellow cab drivers are in financial ruin due to the unregulated expansion of Uber. What was a living wage job now pays under minimum.”
Uber was said to be tied to a pattern of suicide among taxi cab drivers who couldn’t compete with the industry-disrupting application. More
It comes down to the city, and from what I’ve read, two issues: Uber laws and addressing the medallion crisis.
Part of me wonders if the city should compensate medallion owners in some way, since their Uber rollout essentially penalized yellow cabs who followed licensing rules.

She frequently criticized the ride-hailing company for what she sees as underpaying its drivers, decrying their pay as “exploitation” if they don’t get at least $15 an hour, the so-called living wage.
She directly blamed the company for the suicide death of Doug Schifter, a driver in his 60s, who killed himself with a shotgun amid financial difficulties caused by flooding the streets of New York with alternative and cheaper options of taxis, as detailed in a lengthy Facebook post.
“NYC’s fourth driver suicide. Yellow cab drivers are in financial ruin due to the unregulated expansion of Uber. What was a living wage job now pays under minimum,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote. More
That was in March, months before the New York socialist, who recently lamented the closing down of a coffee shop over minimum wage hikes that she supports, became the new face of the progressive Democratic Party. More
The entire leftist agenda is built on lies and hypocrisy, they just count on the ignorance of their sheeple.

Yes, suicide goes up when the government tries to control what you do. Imagine a world of socialism, everyone is out of a job. In a capitalist society, there are always jobs available. It’s amazing how you claim to have a degree in economics #ShowUsYourTranscripts
