BREAKING: The Squad Proves They’re A Bunch Of Hypocrits!



The “Squad” likes to pretend they are the beacon of Progressive, working American values…

But that’s a lie.

And their participation in the latest budget proves it. The Squad’s embrace of earmarks, once decried as symbols of wasteful spending and corruption, exposes their glaring hypocrisy.

Earmarks, those infamous provisions of pork barrel spending, have resurfaced under the Biden administration after a decade-long ban, much to the dismay of fiscal conservatives and anti-corruption advocates. Despite their tarnished reputation, these earmarks have become a convenient tool for members of Congress to funnel taxpayer dollars into pet projects, often with little accountability or oversight.

A blockbuster analysis by OpenTheBooks reveals that since 2023, the Squad—comprised of Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Jamaal Bowman, Cori Bush, and Rashida Tlaib—has shamelessly indulged in this practice, amassing a staggering $224 million for their pet initiatives.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the self-proclaimed champion of the marginalized, leads the pack with $1.2 million allocated to the International Muslim Women’s Empowerment Project and $500,000 for advocating citizenship for illegal immigrants. While these initiatives may sound noble, they raise questions about priorities and fiscal responsibility, especially when taxpayer dollars are involved.

Similarly, Rep. Ilhan Omar earmarked $850,000 for job creation near George Floyd Square and another $1 million for the Immigrant Opportunity Center. While investing in communities is commendable, using earmarks to advance personal agendas undermines the very principles of fairness and equity that the Squad claims to champion.

Rep. Jamaal Bowman’s allocation of $1.7 million for the Environmental Leaders of Color to build a “green tech park” raises eyebrows, particularly when considering the lack of transparency surrounding such projects. Are these initiatives truly serving the public interest, or are they simply avenues for political patronage?

Rep. Cori Bush’s earmark of $1.5 million for building grocery stores and education facilities for black farmers seems noble at first glance, but upon closer examination, it reveals a pattern of cronyism and favoritism. Are these funds being allocated based on merit and need, or are they merely rewards for political allies?

Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s $4 million earmarked for an “industrial green beltway” in Dearborn, Michigan, further highlights the Squad’s hypocrisy. While Tlaib may tout environmentalism and economic development, the lack of transparency surrounding such projects raises concerns about accountability and potential conflicts of interest.

The grand total of $224.1 million across 215 earmarked projects underscores the Squad’s complicity in a system rife with waste, corruption, and self-serving agendas. While they may espouse progressive ideals in their rhetoric, their actions speak louder than words.

Moreover, the Squad’s indulgence in earmarks is not an isolated phenomenon but rather emblematic of a larger culture of hypocrisy and cronyism pervading Congress. The revelation that the most recent spending bills contained 8,051 earmarks totaling $15.7 billion further underscores the systemic nature of this problem.

In conclusion, the Squad’s embrace of earmarks exposes their hypocrisy and undermines their credibility as champions of progressive values. By prioritizing personal agendas over fiscal responsibility and transparency, they have betrayed the trust of the American people and perpetuated a cycle of corruption within the halls of power. It’s time for the Squad to practice what they preach and uphold the principles they claim to stand for, rather than succumbing to the temptations of political expediency and self-interest.
