Remember back in 2019 when Democrats said it was a political stunt when Mitch McConnell decided to bring the Green New Deal to the floor for a vote? It failed 0—57, with 43 Democrats voting “present” — not even its co-sponsors in the Senate voted for it.
According to a new study, that’s not the only bit of legislation introduced by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez that’s gone nowhere; also failing were a federal overhaul of public housing, a ban on fracking, and a mandate to provide full federal public benefits to illegal aliens. The New York Post reports that according to a study by the Center for Effective Lawmaking, “AOC introduced a total of 21 bills which the center defined as ‘substantive’ — but that is where the story ends. Her legislation received no action in committees, no floor votes, and none ever became law.”
But she did hold a seminar to teach Democrats how to use Twitter effectively.

So all that noise she makes turns out to be for nothing.

Whatever her effectiveness is it’s always negative! Amazon not coming to New York was a big one!

That's the ultimate tell, the more they posture on social and cable media, the more obvious it is that self serving stardom drives them, not legislative accomplishments.

Do I need to review? Out of central casting, bankrolled by PAC, district cherry picked.

But what about all of her Twitter followers? She’s even on Twitch streaming video games. Doesn’t that count?
