Tucker: AOC imposing ‘woke’ policies to the Federal Reserve could really break things


Wednesday night, Tucker Carlson railed against Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) for attempting to impose her policies onto the Federal Reserve. He called her by his nickname for her, “Sandy Cortez.”

“Now Sandy Cortez who literally couldn’t balance a checkbook, has never had a real job has decided we need to turn the Fed into a vehicle to fight global warming,” Carlson said. “Imagine a world where Sandy Cortez weighs in on Fed policy or the power grid, but she does.”

AOC recently wrote a letter to President Biden to appoint a new Federal Reserve chair that reflected her values. Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), Chuy Garcia (D-IL) and Mondaire Jones (D-NY) joined her. “We urge President Biden to reimagine a federal reserve focused on eliminating climate risk and advancing racial and economic justice,” the letter read.

“How’s that going to end?” Carlson said. “With people with literally no skills whatsoever who can’t do anything, who could not program a microwave are in charge of the most complex and significant systems in the country.”

By law, he Federal Reserve is mandated only to ensure stable prices and employment.
