Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez could lose her cushy, taxpayer-funded government job by 2022 if New York State Democrats get their way by redrawing Congressional maps to eliminate AOC’s district.
As it is, New York could lose one to two congressional seats in 2020 due to population decline, even though her district reportedly contains many illegal aliens.
Pollster Frank Luntz tweeted: “New York is expected to lose a House seat after the 2020 Census, and state Democrats are looking to draw out AOC’s district.”
This is why Ocasio-Cortez has been nagging her constituents to fill out the 2020 Census — so she can keep her $170,000-a-year taxpayer-funded job instead of having to go back to bartending.

The City noted: “For Ocasio-Cortez, a full Census count is more than a matter of making sure her district gets all the funds and services it’s due. In a sense, her own political fortunes could hang in the balance.”
“Ocasio-Cortez’ district could be particularly vulnerable to undercount because a little over a quarter of those living there are non-citizens. That’s a higher percentage than any other congressional district in the state.
A Census undercount in Ocasio-Cortez’ district and elsewhere in the state could lead to the elimination of congressional districts — potentially setting off politically charged redistricting battles.
New York already is on track to lose up to two congressional seats during reapportionment due to population decline and slower rate of growth, according to a December report by Election Data Services.”
During her freshman year in Congress, socialist Ocasio-Cortez ruffled many feathers within her own party because she’s viewed as too far-left. In 2019, AOC repeatedly clashed with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi — the leader of the Democratic Party — as a civil war erupted over who’s the queen bee.
In July 2019, AOC went as far as playing the race card on Pelosi after Nancy publicly scolded her. At the time, an angry Pelosi said AOC’s popularity on Twitter does not make the rookie a Washington power player.

There has been increasing unrest between the centrist stalwarts within the Democratic Party, and the small but boisterous far-left “Squad” comprised of AOC, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley.
Pelosi said the four rogue newbies may be popular on Twitter, but that doesn’t mean anything within the walls of Congress.
“All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world, but they didn’t have any following [within the Democratic Party]. They’re four people,” Nancy quipped.
Given this internal strife, it’s no wonder that New York State Democrats want to redraw the state’s Congressional map to eliminate AOC’s district.
Meanwhile, even people in her own district are getting fed-up with AOC’s pompous grandstanding and her refusal to prioritize them over illegal aliens.
Bronx resident Mike Volpe says he will vote for anyone who challenges Ocasio-Cortez because he can’t stand her cluelessness. “I think a lot of people are starting to realize that [Ocasio-Cortez] is an empty vessel with a really loud mouth,” Volpe said.
Luana Malavolta, a Queens resident, agreed. “[AOC] is just a dumb kid who answered a casting call,” she said.
In 2019, Ocasio Cortez’s popularity cratered due to her unending stream of embarrassing gaffes and inane statements.
While AOC fancies herself an expert on economics and the environment, Greenpeace co-founder Patrick Moore dismissed her as a “pompous little twit” whose Green New Deal would “bring about mass death.”
