In a fiery speech to Congress today, AOC called for giving $1200 aid checks to all undocumented workers — no questions asked.
She said that it is needed to keep the economy from collapsing, as they are our most vulnerable members of society, and provide us with most of our agricultural labor. Without them, the United States would have massive food shortages, and the economy would be crippled.
She went on to say:
“Look, we need to take care of these vulnerable members of society. Americans don’t need this handout, they have enough money. Undocumented workers are more in need of these funds and without these people, we are nothing. We would have no food, no nothing. Nada.
Why would Americans need more money? We are the richest country in the world. Every citizen has all their basic needs met. The least we can do is help out the undocumented workers.”
Republicans harshly condemned the move. Senator Joe Barron vowed to fight this bill:
“This is America and we help Americans. Anyone else can leave if they don’t like it. Perhaps their own country will help them. I don’t know and I don’t really care. They can figure it out themselves. We don’t need a socialist money handout in this country! That’s the first step to full communism.”
Republicans are correct as usual. Only a socialist would propose handing out money for nothing. Nothing is given for free. They should just pull themselves up by the bootstraps and work for their money like us. Democrats just love supporting laziness.
