Alabama GOP Rep. Mo Brooks called out radical left-wing colleagues Reps. Cori Bush (D-MO) and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) as “economic ignoramuses” for not knowing that the eviction moratorium and illegal immigration actually hurt the very people they claim to help.
“Cori Bush, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and their socialist kind are economic ignoramuses,” he said. “I can’t say it any more plainly than that. They do not understand the cascading effect of their policies.
“They do not understand the people they purport to want to help in the long hail are actually hurt when they cannot find apartments to live in because the apartment owners have not had the income to be able to keep them open and operational and safe to occupy,” he went on. “It’s all coming home to roost with all these bad policies, at least with respect to rental property. And I’m sure you’re going to see it with other things these socialists are doing.”
He also pointed to inflation because of huge spending bills and the depression of wages because of illegal immigration as other problems caused by Democrats.
