Ocasio-Cortez: I plan to agitate, not legislate

Brian Brady Brian Brady 3 Comments

Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez will probably be elected as a Member of the US House of Representatives and most Americans are not taking her seriously.  They laughingly say that she is dim-witted, has no understanding of what a House member does, and has no understanding of economics whatsoever. SHE KNOWS EXACTLY WHAT SHE IS DOING.  LISTEN TO WHAT SHE SAYS.  Ocasio-Cortez has no …

Fabulous news, ladies!  Governor Brown signed Toni Atkins’ bill which requires California-based, publicly-traded companies to have at least 33% women on their Boards of Directors.
