Leave it to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

The New York Congresswoman excels at making trouble.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez gave Democrats an ultimatum that will ruin everything.

As Great American Daily reports:

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez started a civil war in the Democrat Party over Joe Biden’s scheme to steal $500 billion from taxpayers and fork it over to college-educated elites that tend to vote Democrat.

This past February Ocasio-Cortez warned that unless Joe Biden bailed out student loan borrowers via executive order Democrats would lose their majorities in the midterm election.

“The president has not been using his executive power to the extent that some would say is necessary,” Ocasio-Cortez began.

“One of the single most impactful things President Biden can do is pursue student-loan cancellation. It’s entirely within his power,” Ocasio-Cortez added.

“This really isn’t a conversation about providing relief to a small, niche group of people. It’s very much a keystone action politically. I think it’s a keystone action economically as well,” the New York congresswoman concluded.

Eventually Biden announced a scheme to stick middle-class Americans with the tab of up to $40,000 in debt for Harvard-educated couples making as much as $249,000 combined.

Biden caved to Ocasio-Cortez’s demand and immediately faced blowback from swing state Democrats running the pivotal races that will decide which party controls Congress.

These Democrats understood that generation theft by transferring the debt owed from the Democrats’ college-educated base to working-class Americans does not sell.

“This announcement by President Biden is no way to make policy and sidesteps Congress and our oversight and fiscal responsibilities. Any plan to address student debt should go through the legislative process, and it should be more targeted and paid for so it doesn’t add to the deficit,” swing-seat Democrat New Hampshire Congressman Chris Pappas told reporters.

“I don’t agree with today’s executive action because it doesn’t address the root problems that make college unaffordable,” vulnerable Nevada Democrat Senator Catherine Cortez Masto stated.

“Waiving debt for those already on a trajectory to financial security sends the wrong message to millions of Ohioans without a degree working just as hard to make ends meet,” Tim Ryan, the Democrat nominee running an uphill race in Ohio, exclaimed.

Biden knows he can’t force young voters to magically start liking him.

But what Biden can do is dole out tax-free gifts starting at $10,000 and running up to as much as $40,000 to Americans with student loan debt since that is a chunk of the Democrat Party base.

Politicians buying votes is not new.

Democrats practiced this since FDR and the New Deal at the federal level.

But what is new is Biden stealing hundreds of billions of dollars from the working class to buy votes from the woke mobs that majored in diversity, equity and inclusion nonsense at Harvard and other elite institutions.
