Economic Illiteracy

We told you recently about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s difficulty comprehending the unemployment rate.  She claimed it was low because so many people were working two jobs.  The left-leaning site PolitiFact rated her claim not just false, but “Pants On Fire!” Unfortunately, others on the left are just as confused.  Sen. Elizabeth Warrendoubled down, telling MSNBC that […]
