A former colleague of mine who was from a socialist (communist) controlled country told me that one of the basic principles with many socialist leaders and politicians is that they only care about the rules they like and disregard the ones they don’t.
That was true with Obama as he picked and chose what laws he wanted enforced and what ones he didn’t want enforced and it had nothing to do with legality, but had everything to do with Obama’s personal socialist agenda.
The same cam be said of one of the newest members of Congress – Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).
Her campaign just got slapped with a fine for violating a basic campaign requirement.
I Love My Freedom – WOW: Socialist Ocasio-Cortez’s Campaign Just Got Slapped With A SERIOUS Fine – Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., has only been in Congress for a week, and her campaign was just slapped with a serious fine.
According to New York Daily News, her campaign was fined on Thursday by the state of New York for not carrying workers’ compensation insurance for a month while she ran for office last year.
“The employer did not have the required workers’ compensation coverage from March 31, 2018, to April 30, 2018, and was issued a final penalty of $1,500, which was paid,” state Workers Compensation Board spokeswoman Melissa Stewart said.
“This coverage is vital to ensuring workers are protected for on-the-job injuries,” Stewart added.
One Democratic campaign veteran admitted that “it’s not a great look” for Ocasio-Cortez that her campaign was slapped with a fine for not carrying workers’ compensation coverage…
Sadly, the fine is so little that it won’t make an impression on the young lady who is clueless about what’s good for America or what her extreme socialist agenda will to the country.
My former colleague compared socialist leaders to pathological liars, in that the real truth means nothing to them and that the only truth that matters is the one that comes out of their mouth, regard how absurd it is.
The problem is that with people like that, it is nearly impossible to get them to see and accept reality.
