AOC: ‘We Can Do $10 Trillion’ for New Infrastructure

There will be those who argue AOC must be out of her mind to believe that the United States can spend $10 trillion on new infrastructure – but that’s what she’s arguing.

*****

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” that President Joe Biden’s $2 trillion infrastructure plan over eight years is not big or fast enough,” according to Breitbart.

Ocasio-Cortez said, ‘I think that the vision that President Biden and the administration has laid out, you’re right, has surprised a lot of us in a positive way, and in the detail and the thought that’s here, the scope of it is really encouraging except I think that $2.2 trillion, $2.25 trillion over eight years, I have serious concerns that it’s not enough to realize the very inspiring vision that Biden has advanced. So I believe that those of us here, especially as progressives within the Democratic Party — we know that there is so much more opportunity here. In order for us to realize this inspiring vision, we need to go way higher. That’s what’s going to help us actually deliver on this really promising and inspiring vision the president laid out today.’ [emphasis added]

She continued, ‘I think that we need to really have some shorter timelines, some urgency, greater urgency in this package, and I think some of the investments need to be greater.’

She added, ‘We’re looking at ideals and what we think is the actual investment that can create tens of millions of good union jobs in this country that can shore up our health care, our infrastructure, our housing, and doing it in a way that draws down our carbon figures to help us get in line with IPCC standards we’re talking about realistically $10 trillion over ten years. And I know that may be an eye-popping figure for some people, but we need to understand that we are in a devastating economic moment. Millions of people in the United States are unemployed. We have a truly crippled healthcare system and a planetary crisis on our hands. We’re the wealthiest nation in the history of the world. So we can do $10 trillion.’” [emphasis added]

    Look no further than George Soros interference in getting AOC in our congress. She uses her looks to capture some, and I believe her sole purpose is to run interference, while the Democrat Party pushes through their Communist agenda. Soros is totally behind her being seated today.

  2. Don says:

    One has to wonder about Boston U. since they allowed such ignorance to graduate.

  3. Pegs says:

    Spoken like the TRUE IDIOT she is!! joe biden has TAKEN LEAVE OF his SENSES. he doesn’t even know what day it is. he is TRULY the left’s LITTLE PUPPET!! he will be remembered as the President that DESTROYED America! SO SAD

  4. David says:

    All you people who voted for Bidumb and Pelosi and AOC and Harris and the other democrats don’t forget to sell you soul to the devil

  5. NavVet67 says:

    In order to be declared insane, one must have a brain. AOC does not qualify. Her category listed as “Useful Idiot” and useful is debatable

    • Every village has an idiot, but New York must have cornered the market on idiots. One must have a functioning brain to be declared insane, however the communist now in power must have someone with a brain. Will that person please step forward.

      • NavVet67 says:

        Unfortunately what you say is partially correct. 55% of NY, mostly the city, have drank from the poison kool-aid jug. 40% of the city and Long Island to busy making money to see what’s really going on around them, the other 15% are the freebee people. They’ll vote for anyone who gives them something for free no matter how it hurts them or keeps them down on the city plantation. The rest of NY has got it together and is probably one step away from spreading lead

  6. Franklin Arthur Wyrick says:

    The world is full of educated idiots. She is a prime example of that. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that in order to even build one windmill it takes fossil fuel. How does she think steel is made? By the time a windmill breaks even on supplying energy it will need to be overhauled or even replaced. Renewable energy has a place in the future and we need to pursue it, but we can’t force something when the technology isn’t here yet!

  7. Jack Spring says:

    We’ve been fossil-fuel dependant for several hundred years and it’s impossible to suddenly stop and pretend we can instantly change over to other energy sources that aren’t necessarily practical everywhere. I hold degrees in petroleum technology and environmental studies and I believe we can eventually decrease our dependence on fossil-fuels, but it can’t be done overnight. AOC makes me wonder if she has any idea what planet she’s on. She’s dangerous just because there are people who actually believe her. She’s the epitime of the old adage “It’s better to be silent and thought a fool than to open one’s mouth and prove it.”

  8. Jose Ferrandis says:

    She think it is all so easy avoiding the step by step.

    • Robert Elam says:

      So I did not realize that there are so many stupid people ion her district to elect her. Must be the ” give me, give me
      ” crowd. She iOS an embarrassment to NY.

  9. John J says:

    She is an anti American nit wit who should be impeached

  10. The fart cow from her stupid green deal.

  11. Martin Gavrila says:

    As Rush would say she’s a WACKADOO

  12. Gwyllim says:

    Whomever gave her an economics degree ought to get slapped in the mouth!

    • Phil Niname says:

      Gwyllim, I agree with you about slapping her in the mouth, but I also think who ever gave her that degree needs to be not slapped but busted in the mouth with a baseball bat, or better yet have there head rearranged with the bat just for being so damn stupid giving her any kind of degree.

    • John Tidwell says:

      You think she did sexual favors for that degree? I don’t think she used her brain and still not using it.

  13. Sandy says:

    Call the men in white coats for the whole bunch of the. AOC is crazier than a shit house rat!

    • rm says:

      I would care less if I read in the morning paper that AOC got run over by a drunk/driver somewhere, or else AOC was drunk/drugged and drove into a phone pole or tree….

    • Phil Noname says:

      Sandy you need to understand, aoc is a qualified brain damaged third grade drop out who has never been able to add 2+2 and ever get the correct answer.

  14. Mikeyg819 says:

    I’ll just say what I’ve been saying all along, we need to protest and we must remove Biden, Harris, Pelosi, AOC, and every single demonrat who is presently working in the White House and in Congress and in every single part of our political system. Basically we need to do what Trump went in to do, DRAIN THE SWAMP, ONCE AND FOR ALL!!!! We have to save our country!!!!

    • Don A Richardson says:

      Washington corruption is now complete and the chinese communist never fired a shot The LIBERAL DEMOCRATIC SOCIALIST/COMMUNIST including many in the REPUB party Biden is a pawn with Obama running the show.
      Biden is a straw crow . Media should face a firing squad .
      Total 1984 predictions coming to main street. NWO/ Secret Black op’s unchecked and pulling the levers. Constitution is now meaningless.
      666 end times coming home. This story ends very tragic. NEW uprising with 250-300 million needed . People becoming robots for the NWO Elites.

    • Phil Noname says:

      Rgt just exactly what did you have in mind shoving into her mouth?

  17. Ruth Wiles says:

    If this idiot wants to put up $10 trillion dollars to pay for their socialist schemes, those pushing this BS should pay for it. Americans have been pushed beyond the limit and can’t afford it, but Polosi, Schumer, Biden, et.al need to dig into their own pockets to fund this communist nightmare.

  18. AOC = Wacko!

    The U.S. is doomed with AOC, Biden, and the rest of the Dems.

    They are out to destroy the US of A!

  19. The Real M says:

    How in hell did AOC get a Economics Degree? (Don’t tell me, I think I know!)
    But I digress…….that crazy space cadet wench wouldn’t recognize a economics textbook if it bit her on her stupid arse!

    • Tacky CCP says:

      What do you Americans expect from Tweety Bird?? You really cannot expect a “bird brain” to think, right? Oh besides copulating with a crow which had flown away by now…you chosen her to represent you so live with it you “Justasbad birdbrain”.

  20. Cg says:

    Why even listen to a person who doesn’t understand life?💩🤡

    • maxibaby says:

      Yeah, much less economics! If someone asked AOC to define the meaning of a “budget” her limited quantity of working brain cells (1) would short circuit!

  21. Wes says:

    AOC likes to tell people what to do. In the military and other jobs we are taught, if you are not willing to do it yourself, then do not ask someone else to do it. All she does all day is sit on her fat butt and think of how to make jobs harder for others that already are overloaded with work. Let her go out and help the construction workers moving heavy equipment and lumber and steel. Ahh! I cannot do that because it will mess my nails up. These people in mostly New York and California are just sick in the head. They should stay at home and not be paid. They continue to lie and no accountability. Will someone in the White House stand up and tell them, you are the people dividing the country with cancel culture, race lies, Defunding the Police and teaching school kids and others the wrong information. My gosh we even have Dr. Seuss and Mr. Potato Head being criminalized. One teacher complaint about the color of bandages is racist or white supremacy. Really. Do not talk about color anymore. You have blinders on. Let us vote this government out and start from scratch. These stupid people and policies are no good. The people do not need the government overstepping things. The less government is involved the better. Self dependence is strength. Government intrusion is wrong. Stop caving to China and lies by the regime that is evil and corrupt like most of these bureaucrats, Democrats, Big Tech and other weak leaders. Some have been in office for years and never did anything good in their life and now are telling people what they should do. Excuse me while I vomit on Nancy Pelosi’s chair. Ocasio Cortez needs some cleaning skills. Give her that job.

  22. Fed up says:

    She’s no different from the rest of the administration because they’re all out of thier minds,if this bill gets past our taxes are going to be sky high,I don’t believe a word that nitwit Biden has to say when it comes to not raising our taxes,This administration thinks they could just print any amount of money with no repercussions well if anyone believes that they’re a fool

  23. Jim says:

    The answer to your question, is Yes! She is insane. One thing I have found with AOC, if you need a regular does of Stupid, she is your Pharmacy.

  24. F F Tramutola Jr. says:

    She’s an idiot. I take that back, she’s aspiring to achieve idiot. Right now she has the aptitude of a stone.

  25. Ally says:

    She needs to go back to dancing on rooftops at Boston College. She never had a mind to lose.

  26. Honest says:

    Besides AOC ~~ Why didn’t. You give 5 K to each Republican ??????!! Worthless Trash

  27. Honest says:

    AOC talks just like a parrot called Nancy=JOE Cortez Hasn’t a clue how to pay it back~ Maybe taxing Every breath we take ~ Or Maybe coming out of all Democrat wages we pay~

    • jan schreuder says:

      I think AOC is absolutely right and I share that opinion with many renowned economists like Joseph Stieglitz. Not that i think you will post this comment. I wish you all teh best in your bubble.

      • Marc Hoffman says:

      • Louise says:

        Then why don’t you help her get the 10 trillion she needs so urgently. That way the rest of us can move on. She’s dumb as a doorknob and continues to astound me that she’s in politics in the first place. I guess it’s the old adage…it’s not what you know but who you know.

      • Chris Kirkendall says:

        WOW – you need to get yourself checked for serious brain damage. We’ve already spent more than the entire gross nat’l product of the US in just the last few months – where do you think all this money’s gonna come from? If you just have the Fed print money, it’ll cause massive inflation by devaluing the dollar. On the other hand, there’s no tax plan out there that would be even remotely acceptable to 99% of the population that would raise enuf $$ to pay for it. It’s pure loony-tunes fantasy…

      • Jack Spring says:

        ????? You sound like someone who’s done one too many hits of acid.

  28. BootsOnGround says:

    I don’t think the world has enough paper and ink to print this much money.

  29. Joe L. Ward says:

    Hey AOC. I need a double shot of Jack Daniels. And be quick about it.

  30. Priscilla says:

    AOC I am still trying to figure out what you failed to learn in your Economics classes at Boston University. We are no longer the richest nation China has surpassed us because of the wild and crazy spending you and your cohorts have done and propose to do. The reason our healthcare system is broken is because of President Obama and his crippling Obamacare that he said would fix the problem, that was a lie, when Obamacare was signed into law there were supposedly 30 million people without health insurance due to existing health care diagnosis, well we still have that 30 million nd more because of Obamacare. In the previous so called stimulus spending that was passed only 10% actually covered the problems with the Covid Virus, the other 90% covered pet projects of Nancy Pelosi and the others in the House. If you pull out your dusty Econ text books and red them you will find out that it is better to have a much smaller government and to balance the budget of the nation. The other problem with the high unemployment is due to the approximately 45 states that thought they knew more and decided to totally shut down their states economies driving small businesses out of business when they are and always have been the main stay of our economy. Many of these governors said the big box stores were essential when in reality outside of grocery stores many of the other stores we could have done without for a short period of time until this problem was handled. The other problem the so called health experts were not experts at all they were big progressive duds.

  31. Jan says:

    The USA already has a $27 trillion debt. Bumbling Biden already added another $2 trillion. This debt will never be repaid. Where will they get the money? Simply print more? The more money they print, the more they devalue the US dollar. At some point, we’ll be like the Weimar Republic (Germany) after WW1. We’ll need a wheelbarrow full of money to buy a loaf of bread. AOC is nuts.

  32. Elena Brio says:

    Hey, AOC! Easy with OUR trillions. Do not forget YOU is our servant not visa versa. We create wealth, not you. Know your place, AOC.

    • Chuck says:

      The problem is AOC may actually be insane. Every thing that comes out of her mouth reminds me of some lunatic on the street corner predicting Armageddon. The people in her district that re-elected her have to mentally ill or at least mental midgets.

  33. borecrazy says:

    That’s the kind of thinking she had when elected! She didn’t have 2 nickels to rub together to move to D.C., and instead of learning fiscal responsibility, she has joined many other Democrats that think spending any amount of money is no problem! Did you see the list of appropriations planned already? Huge amounts of money earmarked for causes of ambiguous titles! This infrastructure “plan” is so loosely detailed it will turn into a giant slush fund for the Democrat party, using our money!

    • Kazvet says:

      Why are we even spending any money on redoing all our millions of buildings and replacing gas autos with electric when SHE and others say we are doomed and dead in 9yrs. We should not worry about any of this and just live our lives as each day is the last. All of these “climate change’ idiots are just that idiots and morons. There is always climate change! No other country, especially China, are doing a damn thing. Hong Kong is so polluted you can’t see the street from a high building window. It looks like the fog will lift but it doesn’t, it’s SNOG!! When China takes over America, if the world is still here, do you think China will give a damn about climate change!! India has so many cars they could never produce enough electric cars in “9” years HAHA!

  34. MIKE says:

    THE QUESTION IS: IS AOC INSANE??? Is that really a Question???? She’s just another entitled scumbag politician that loves to spend other peoples money. She’s insane anywhere in the world except DC, she fits right in there.

    GO TRUMP 2024-2028-2032———-

  35. Alice says:

    She is insane and has no ideal what she is talking about. For one, how can we be the richest nation in the world when we are borrowing money to give out to everyone and every country. Where did Governmental 101 Accounting go??? You only spend what you bring up, not what you print. The money is not worth the paper it is printed on. Government has gotten to the point they think they can just print what the hell they want to. It is destroying our country but then that is what the crazy dems want! I say kick EVERYONE out of government, have a completely new election to replace everyone in government now. It is time for the American people to take back control of the US Government. It is the people who rule the country not the politicians. Politicians have become too corupt! If I were 30 years younger, I would run for office and put some common sense back into government. It is time to have a constitutional convention!

    AOC needs to spend some time in the real world. Not a princess!

    she never lost mind. She didn’t have one to lose.

    • Whaaat! says:

      So very True… AOC is seriously ill . She has a disease that won’t allow her to see beyond her nose. She’s so out of touch with….everything!

  39. Russ says:

    All AOC is an idiot with zero sense what so ever.

  40. Richard Zimmer says:

    She has to be removed from all government.
    She has no clue or any education to be Saying any of her stupid comments .

    Why did she ever get voted in when she was only a bartender.
    Will they vote her out next time to get her off the TV that is just making people mad.

    Can’t someone just tell her to shut up like the others in Congress.
    CNN find someone else for a interview that have some smarts, because she does not belong any where in politics.
    Go back to the bar.

    • Paul Terhaar says:

      For someone who supposedly has a degree in economics she can say many things that make me wonder how she got a degee,maybe the degree was just to show up! Because it doesn’t make sense how we could afford anything like 10 trillion. If she does think so,i would like her to start counting from one and tell me when she is finished counting 10 trillion.

    • Lina Emily Vasquez says:

      People seem to a little confused. AOC worked as a bartender WHILE going to College. Unlike most Republicans, She wasn’t born with a silver spoon in Her mouth. Yet She graduated CUM LAUDE from BOSTON UNIVERSITY. Which is a well regarded and competitive PRIVATE UNIVERSITY. I agree Government IS corrupt. After all, Our ex-President was an extremely corrupt “Real Estate Developer” who fancied Himself the best President ever. But He was nothing more than an autocratic, racist, xenophobe who was also a divisive and paranoid MEGALOMANIAC.

      While I am NOT a Socialist. I do, however, have more faith in elected officials who know what it’s like to WORK like an average American and who are unlikely to be elitists (and racists) who ONLY consider and work for the interests of Ultra wealthy white constituents.

      • Milan says:

        Lina, all her awards from Boston University tells me is just how far our education system has slipped. None of our schools teach common sense cause if they did, most of our politicians and educators would fail the course. Today, I look at the honor roll in the small town I grew up in and 2/3 of the students are getting all A’s and B’s. In all the years I taught school, I always had to give a few C’s and D’s and an occasional F because I made them earn what they got. Todays younger generation is all about what will you give me, not what do I deserve.

  41. rick says:

    Another Onerous Communist doesn’t even deserve a comment for this one! The longer the press gives her air& face time, the more moronic she gets! Just one big blast of oral butt-gas after another!

  42. Lillie C Allgaier says:

    Any major spending bills ‘fomented’ by Democrats, should be paid for specifically by Democrats. Kind of a Democratic tax! Maybe then they would take a class in economics or at least make an effort to understand it. And AOC only gets press coverage because she is pretty – not for her mind or sensible ideas since – she doesn’t have a mind or sensible ideas! Qualifier: she is only ‘pretty’ when her mouth isn’t open.

  43. Geneva says:

    She is a spoiled new york brat that doesn’t have a brain or any common sense. She should be putting her money where her mouth is ,but of course now of these bleeding liberals would ever do that, they expect the simple tax payers to pay for it all. One problem, if no one has jobs who will be paying taxes? Think about all she has said, proves she has no schooling that actually taught her any history or civics. When we don’t learn from history ,we are doomed to repeat it!!!!

  44. Ken says:

    Technically, I believe you must be in possession of your mind, at some point, before you can be accused of losing it. This person is therefore NOT qualified to lose her mind.

  45. RLR says:

    We already know Mathis not her expertise. But yes,she is insane
    Whether this is a duplicate only substantiates your continued harassment of my responding to a current article.

  46. Jack says:

    Our money will become worthless and nothing will ever get completed and the politicians like AOC will pocket most of it any way. Calling her stupid would be redundant, it’s obvious to everyone who’s has read this article.

  47. RLR says:

    We already know Mathis not her expertise. But yes,she is insane

  48. sad says:

    I think that if the AOC wants to spend that much money let them pay it.

  49. kiln dried says:

    Why not make it 100 trillion? It’s only zero’s?
    This is another one I cannot wrap my head around anyone waking up in morning and thinking ” I’ll vote for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez today since she has my values”

  50. marilyn evans says:
