A lawyer has started a conservative group called “Stop AOC PAC” that plans to unseat Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez—from three states away—in the 2020 Congressional Election.
Dan Backer is no novice to political action committees (PAC): he is the founder of a law firm specializing in just that.
Backer, like many others, has called Ocasio-Cortez’s policies “unrealistic” and harmful—such as her proposed and rejected Green New Deal. Potential candidates believe that the democratic socialist does not represent the district’s interest, but Backer believes the problem goes further than that.
“Because the warm, fuzzy socialism of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is fundamentally un-American and dangerous for our country,” responded the lawyer when asked why he started the PAC. “I think her ideas are the same evil that is destroying Venezuela as we speak.”
Cortez has become the face of the Democrat party and her socialist ideas are becoming more mainstream. Luckily groups like Stop AOC PAC are working to defeat her radical platform.
We asked New Yorkers what they thought of @AOC's role in Amazon’s departure from NYC. Guess what, AOC, New Yorkers aren’t buying your ‘bologna’ either. #socialismtakescapitalismcreates pic.twitter.com/0hIaTwMZU6— Job Creators Network (@JobCreatorsUSA) March 4, 2019
