AOC Supports Mark Cuban’s Push for “Trickle Up Economics” AKA Federal Jobs and Stimulus Programs

Published

on

Mark Cuban and freshman congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are becoming strange bedfellows.

On May 17, 2020, Cuban went on Twitter to float the idea of a federal jobs program to track and trace the Wuhan virus. This would be a program to transition workers back into the economy despite the economic upheaval. Cuban argued that the Paycheck Protection Program didn’t stimulate the economy and instead asserted that consumer demand is the only factor that can rescue businesses.

“It’s time for trickle up economics,” he stated. “We need a transitional fed jobs program that trains and hires millions for a federal tracking/tracing/testing program as well as for support for at risk populations including long term care. We need to dent unemployment with stable jobs.”

Cuban also put forward the idea of a $500 billion “use it or lose it” temporary spending stimulus program where 128 million U.S. households could receive a $1,000 check every two weeks for the next two months that must be spent within 10 days or it ends up expiring.

Last month, unemployment reached about 15 percent due to jobs lost from the Wuhan virus pandemic.

“This is not like the recessions of the past, even the Great Recession, where we had time to allow entrepreneurs just to create enough businesses or create enough jobs,” Cuban said to the Washington Examiner last week. “We’re down 30 million-plus jobs in two months.”

“We may have to go to jobs programs like we did in the ‘30s, which would make perfect sense for like tracking, and tracing, and testing where we train healthcare workers to do that and create 2 or 3 million jobs,” he continued.

Ocasio-Cortez noticed the thread and agreed with the tycoon.

“Totally agree,” AOC tweeted on May 17. “It’s time for a Federal Jobs Guarantee.”

On previous occasions, Cuban has expressed his fondness for AOC but does disagree with some of her policies however.

Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation

Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.

If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.

Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional. 

AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.

In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.

At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”

In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.” 

Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”

According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”

When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”

Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
