Study: AOC Among Least Effective Members of Congress

April 6, 2021

A survey from the nonpartisan Center for Effective Lawmaking has determined that radical, socialiat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) is among the least effective members of the previous Congress.

“She introduced a lot of bills, but she was not successful at having them receive any sort of action in committee or beyond committee and if they can’t get through committee they cannot pass the House,” said Vanderbilt political scientist Alan Wiseman, co-director of the Center.

“It’s clear that she was trying to get her legislative agenda moving and engage with the lawmaking process. But she wasn’t as successful as some other members were — even among [other] freshmen — at getting people to pay attention to her legislation,” he added.

Ocasio-Cortez ranked 230th out of 240, and dead last among the 19 Democrat lawmakers from New York state.

New York Republican Rep. Nicole Malliotakis told the New York Post this week, “Her ludicrous policy ideas would destroy our country — Americans should be thankful she’s not effective.”
