A History Lesson From Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

A history lesson from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who holds power over us as a member of Congress:

“They had to amend the Constitution of the United States to make sure Roosevelt did not get re-elected,” the New York Democrat said during an MSNBC town hall on Friday night, as she touted the positive effects of the New Deal.

True enough, the 22nd Amendment was passed to prevent another President for Life like FDR, who was so gifted at patronage and hardball politics that only death could dislodge him from office. Before that, every president had had the honor to follow George Washington’s noble example and leave voluntarily after two terms.

However, the 22nd Amendment passed in March 1947. President for Life Roosevelt passed away in April 1945.

Still more ignorant is OAC’s belief that the New Deal had significant positive effects. It prolonged the Great Depression, which may have continued to this day were Roosevelt still in power. Then again, from the point of view of leftist Democrats, imposing economic depression would be a good thing, providing an opportunity for the ham-fisted coercive intrusion into the economy that FDR was known for.

On tips from Varla, Dan F, Scott D, Sean C, and 1-Bodhisattva.
