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 Americans are working “two, three, or four jobs to try to pay the rent and keep food on the table.”

The left is going to find it hard to make the class warfare argument when virtually every economic class and statistic is showing improvement.  But they are trying.

And if you want even more examples of left-wing economic illiteracy, check out this video of Rep. Keith Ellison, deputy chairman of the Democrat National Committee, explaining why national borders create “injustice” because illegal immigrants can’t unionize.

Seriously, my friends, you can’t make this stuff up!
