Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Tesla: ‘We Got No Return on Our Investment’

During a climate change town hall event, Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) criticized Elon Musk’s Tesla for receiving government funding, saying that the government got “no return on our investment” in the company. "In the barrio, we'd kneecap such a pendejo, for not paying up. And that's just for starters." said the Democratic presidential candidate.

Speaking at a climate change town hall organized by Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont recently, Democratic Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez criticized Elon Musk’s electric car manufacturer Tesla over the company’s use of taxpayer funds. “When we as a public choose to invest in new technologies, we deserve a return on that investment,” Ocasio-Cortez said when discussing government investments in green energy.

Ocasio-Cortez further stated: “For far too long, we gave money to Tesla, we gave money to a ton of people and we got no return on our investment that the public made in creating technologies, and it’s about time we get our due because it’s the public that funded and financed a lot of innovative technologies.”

This isn’t the first time that Ocasio-Cortez has spoken out against the government funding of private businesses, the Democratic Rep.-elect has previously criticized e-commerce giant Amazon stating in a tweet: “We’ve been getting calls and outreach from Queens residents all day about this. The community’s response? Outrage.” She continued, “Amazon is a billion-dollar company. The idea that it will receive hundreds of millions of dollars in tax breaks at a time when our subway is crumbling and our communities need MORE investment, not less, is extremely concerning to residents here.”

While it seems that Ocasio-Cortez may have a good point in relation to the government funding of private tech firms, the young Socialist has made a number of questionable comments in recent months. She previously called for the abolishment of the electoral college, referring to it as a “shadow of slavery’s power” in America.

She does have some good points here. Even sounds a bit Libertarian.

The government should get return on investment but should offer every lazy deadbeat free healthcare and universal income.

This is what Democrats actually believe.

Yeah I don't have a problem with her position on this. And also, is Breitbart trying to make her seem low class with her choice of language? Because Trump's used his fair share of colorful euphemisms and Breitbart never really took issue with that.

The political theater gets crazier every year. I used to think it was a well orchestrated show but now I believe it is all improvised.

wow even this dim female knows that taxpayers subsidized Tesla.

Luckily for her and for us, the subsidy of $7500/Tesla car is going away soon.

Isn't that "culturally appropriating" the IRA thugs? Thought she would more at home with the Colombian "necktie."
