Cruz in Cancun, AOC Raising Money for Freezing Texans


Raw Story: Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz and right wing extremists Erick Erickson, Dinesh D’Souza, Ben Shapiro, and Donald Trump, Jr., all thought there was nothing a sitting U.S. Senator could do for the millions of people freezing and starving in the Lone Star State.

After massive internet outrage – outrage that was called “cancel culture” today in a rant from Trump Jr. – Senator Cruz hightailed it back to America from his Cancun crash pad at the Ritz Carlton, put out a statement lying about the origins of his Mexico excursion, literally lied some more, and came home to a his Houston home that was empty except for his dog Snowflake and his security guard hanging out in his car in the driveway.

While the Texas Senator was doing all this, a Congresswoman from New York City went to work for his constituents, because someone had to.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez raised $1 million for the people of Texas. All of it will be distributed to five Texas charities.

AOC just delivered an amazing lesson in the power of people, in leadership, in creativity, and in government.

Republicans continue to insist that government is bad. Government is as good or as bad as the people in government.

  1. Its over $2 million as of Friday. Bartending in NY is probably pretty good training for an elected official. People skills, handling crisis, and schooling a knuckle dragging Princeton grad hell bent on white christian nationalism.
    Btw, that was a white booger on Teds nose during the 2016 primary debate. Any bartender knows there is only a few things that make white boogers.

  2. And even just in NY , compare how AOC handles fat money business to how Chris Collins handled it (jailed for corruption and insider trading and recently pardoned by Trump). Regardless of party, it is working class people who should be elected.
    Dems in NY are not without problems, Cuomo (Oligarchy) has been around too long, state contracts are funneled to the same companies, and Nadler, the dancing bear is Wall Street rep and Judiciary chair ???? conflict of interest ? No knock warrants for NYS still Ok even when children are home, and the cops find 1 oz of weed. Gangs and Tyrants ,….

  3. What else is new?

    “Christian” GOP gives Wall St $1.5T*, says $600 too much for Main St.

    (And NO Dems shot down their “argument”, pointing out $600 was only higher weekly pay for the bottom 15%: poor people.)

    The “Christian” GOP despises the poor. Despises Jesus. Worships/serves Mammon.

    * Including the govt literally buying junk bonds. 2008 redux. #NewNormal in #MammonsUSA.
