‘Why are you lying?’ AOC’s latest anti-capitalism diatribe trampled by March jobs report

Perhaps Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez should check the dictionary definition of the word “flat.”

The New York Democrat announced Thursday that “wages are flat” in her ongoing condemnation of the capitalist economy, invoking the name of Martin Luther King Jr. as a fellow democratic socialist in her tweets.

“How on earth could young people…dare question the larger economic forces in their lives?!” the freshman congresswoman asked.

And then came reality.

The March jobs report blew Ocasio-Cortez and her broken logic out of the water, posting 20,000 more jobs for the month than expected.

The U.S. added 196,000 jobs last month, exceeding the expected 175,000 and the unemployment rate remained steady at 3.8 percent, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported Friday, according to CNBC.

The March rebound was splashed across headlines Friday, in case Ocasio-Cortez needed to re-assess her take on capitalism.

Wages, which the New York congresswoman labeled “flat,” grew from 3.2 to 3.4 percent.

President Trump announced Thursday that the “Economy is looking very strong” while he noted the “unnecessary and destructive actions” by the Federal Reserve which raised interest rates four times in 2018.

Looks like Ocasio-Cortez got left in the dust of the March jobs report. Twitter users shredded her for being so “horrifyingly uninformed.”
