Ocasio-Cortez campaign fined for not carrying worker’s compensation coverage

Ocasio-Cortez campaign fined for not carrying workers compensation coverage

Based on her rhetoric, one would think Democratic Socialist Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez would make sure her campaign employees had all the proper coverage. Accidents can happen and workers’ compensation must be covered to protect employees in case they’re injured on the job. Somehow, that slipped through the cracks, causing her campaign to be fined by the state of New York.

“Hypocrisy at its finest,” state GOP spokeswoman Jessica Proud said. “The so-called champion of workers, when given her own responsibility, is not following the law. It’s unbelievable.”

Ocasio-Cortez has created a reputation of working on behalf of the people, but her employees were grossly unprotected for a while.

Ocasio-Cortez Campaign Slapped With A Fine For Not Providing Proper Workers’ Comp

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s 2018 congressional campaign was fined by the state of New York for failing to provide the proper workers’ compensation coverage to campaign staffers.

“The employer did not have the required workers’ compensation coverage from March 31, 2018 to April 30, 2018,” Melissa Stewart, the spokeswoman for New York’s Workers Compensation Board, told The New York Daily News. “[It] was issued a final penalty of $1,500, which was paid.”

“This coverage is vital to ensuring workers are protected for on-the-job injuries,” Stewart continued.

My Take

Mistakes happen. We tend to blow things out of proportion when our adversaries make even the smallest errors, which is probably what the Ocasio-Cortez team will say if they say anything at all.

Here’s the thing, though. When you ran your campaign the way she did, and when you attempt to govern as she’s attempting to govern, you make sure to dot all the I’s and cross all the T’s on something that’s supposed to be your patented strength. She allegedly fights for the people, but in doing so missed important details that could have devastated the very people working for her.

If this “fighter for the people” didn’t pay enough attention to the details to keep her people covered, can we really trust her outrageous policies? Details matter, especially when you can’t answer the question of how to pay for her grandiose schemes.

Pirro: Democrats putting politics over people

Pirro Democrats putting politics over people

Following President Trump’s speech to America with his compromise offer to Democrats to secure the border and end the government shutdown, Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro was in rare form as she went after Democrats for instantly rejecting the proposal. Her biggest target was Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.

The President has requested funds in order to build a small portion of the border wall, render humanitarian assistance, improve drug detection technology, and hire 2,750 additional border patrol agents and 75 immigration judge teams. In exchange, he’s offering three years of extended protection for DACA recipients and those with Temporary Protected Status.

Here was her response:

My Take

There are many conservatives who are against the proposal. Under normal circumstances, I would be as well. But we’re approaching a full month of the government shutdown. Enough is enough.

Will Democrats abandon Dreamers over the political ploy of the border wall?

Will Democrats abandon Dreamers over the political ploy of the border wall

The ball is back in the Democrats’ court. Some may say it’s been there the whole time. I do. Unfortunately, most Americans have bought into the leftist media narrative that the President is forcing the government shutdown to continue by not negotiating despite clear evidence to the contrary.

Nevertheless, the President has decided to make his compromise public. He took to national television to offer three years worth of protection to Dreamers.

Trump’s immigration offer brings polarized reactions from Dems and GOP

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/trumps-immigration-offer-brings-polarized-reactions-from-dems-and-gopPresident Trump’s immigration compromise package to end the partial government shutdown drew sharp reactions from Democratic and Republican lawmakers alike.

In a televised White House address Saturday, Trump offered Democrats a three-year extension of protections for 700,000 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients, in exchange for the $5.7 billion to fund a barrier along the southern border with Mexico.

The Democrats’ responses were predictable. They don’t want any deal that includes the border wall because they realize if they can keep the wall from going forward, it harms the President’s chances for reelection in 2020.

Period.

This has never been about helping immigrants. Democrats are willing to harm both Dreamers and 800,000 Americans hurt by the shutdown in order to make the President look bad for 2020. They’re a disgrace to our nation’s government. Build the wall.

Cartoon: Is that another huge immigration caravan?

Cartoon Is that another huge immigration caravan

The 2016 GOP field seemed like a clown car routine compared to what was essentially five legitimate Democratic candidates. Whether they simply feared Hillary Clinton or didn’t want to take their shot following President Obama, many Democrats who were considered potentially serious candidates didn’t run.

That’s not the case for 2020. We may end up with more Democrats in the running than we had Republicans in 2016.

Cartoonist Michael Ramirez captured the growing group perfectly:

It’s certainly starting to look like a migrant caravan forming. Oh, wait. Those are actually American citizens.
