(TruthAndLiberty.com) – On Monday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez stated during a tele-town hall where she was speaking with voters that New York City was unaffordable for regular “working-class people.” The New York Post editorial board was quick to blast the representative over this comment.
While they pointed out that she was right in that New York was too expensive, they also noted that she was partly at fault for the current condition and noted that in part it was her policies that had made the city too expensive.
On Tuesday the board published an editorial which started off by stating that Ocasio-Cortez was correct in noting that New York City was unaffordable for the working class. However, they then proceeded to note that progressive policies had been what had made the city so expensive.
During the meeting, Ocasio-Cortez pointed out that the rise in living costs and expenses was not felt by the rich but rather by working-class people. She added that the people moving to New York City were not usually the wealthiest people but rather working-class people who were not able to afford the city anymore. She proceeded to suggest that the city’s rich needed to face higher taxation.
The board slammed AOC over the supposed sympathy she showed towards the working class and proceeded to blame her and her political allies for promoting policies that have led to the current crisis and had allowed immigrants to enter the country in large numbers. They also pointed out that the large influx of immigrants had a particularly negative effect on New York City as it was stretching the city’s resources.
