According to the data science, socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is one of the most useless Democrat members of Congress.
The data science from Vanderbilt University’s Center for Effective Lawmaking shows that she ranks in 230th place out of 240 Democrats in regard to “effectiveness.”
Ocasio-Cortez is reportedly not only the lowest ranking New York Democrat but also the lowest ranking member of the “Squad” of which she serves as the defacto leader.
According to the Center for Effective Lawmaking, she’s proposed 21 pieces of “substantive legislation” during her career, but none of them made it out of committee.
Conversely, Rep. Ilhan Omar’s proposed 33 pieces of legislation, none of which went anywhere, and Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s proposed 22 pieces of legislation, three of them made it out of committee, and one of which then made it into law.
Omar and Tlaib rank in 214th and 92nd place, respectively.
Ocasio-Cortez seems quite useless, with only nine other Democrats being more useless, or at least according to the Center’s scoring process:
- Colin Allred
- Andre Carson
- Katherine Clark
- Dwight Evans
- Ann Kirkpatrick
- Jim Costa
- Nancy Pelosi
- Pete Aguilar
- Kwanza Hall
- Jim Cooper
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has played a leadership role for years, so her ranking can be explained by the fact that it’s not her job to introduce legislation.
As for Ocasio-Cortez’s ranking, it’s easily explainable by her skewed priorities, according to Democrat Party insiders.
“Tweeting is easy, governing is hard. You need to have friends. You need to understand the committee process, you need to be willing to make sacrifices. Her first day in Congress … she decided to protest outside of Nancy Pelosi’s office,” one insider said to the New York Post.
Another unnamed insider added that “legislation was never her focus. It was media and narrative.”
And of course establishing a large fan base of sycophantic groupies who hang off her every word. Sycophants like these critics who raged on social media after the Post published the findings of Vanderbilt University’s Center for Effective Lawmaking:
Studies declare that the New York Post is extremely biased, and even if AOC had developed an effective Coronavirus on her own, the Post probably would’ve given credit for it to the closest white man in the room.

From the trumpian New York Post? Uh!

Thatcstudy is obviously biased. She works and pushes for everyday people not the rich. She’s a bit too progressive for me but she’s got a big heart and the Rs don’t like her and will be against anything she proposes.

Aren’t Democrats supposed to be pro-university? Why therefore are they disputing the center’s findings? Of course, you can tell that none of them actually read the Post’s reporting or the Center’s findings. Instead they reached a conclusion based on the story’s headline.
Conversely, those who read the story and were keenly aware of the Democrat lawmaker’s record weren’t even remotely shocked by the findings, including Donald Trump Jr.
No one is surprised!

That said, these findings were not a disappointment to all the non-leftists who worry about the catastrophic damage that Ocasio-Cortez’s desired policies would engender.

She’s like a little girl in a woman’s body. You can’t get more crazy or radical than this one.

She is part of the “look at me generation” which merely talks to get noticed and truly has no redeeming quality.

Of course, some do wish she was more useless. The fact is that, despite her legislative uselessness, she has an outsized influence on politics.
After all, she’s the reason that Amazon withdrew from a deal with New York City that would have brought 25,000 jobs to the metropolitan area.
And she’s one of the reasons that movements to “defund the police,” “abolish ICE” and “end fracking” aren’t laughed out of the room.
Because of her influence, low-information voters take such ideas seriously, and that could bode badly for America if she convinces enough of them to vote more socialists like her into power.
I wish she was useless. Unfortunately, her millions of social media sheep believe the crap she spews out there. Even though she is useless at her job, she a useful tool for the socialists.

For the time being, though, she’s legislatively useless. But that could change …
