(RepublicanWire.org) – Fox Across America host Jimmy Failla blasted Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on Friday morning for the congresswoman’s recent video about the “burdens of capitalism.”

“There are quite a few countries that are really struggling because young people, under the burdens of capitalism, are not having kids. We’re not having kids at the same rate! We actually need immigrants to help balance things out,” explained the Congresswoman in a social media post on Wednesday.

Failla roasted AOC, calling her “a low-IQ TikToker who happens to serve Congress.”

Failla said, “you’ve always got to qualify this through the lens of, AOC is a low-IQ TikToker who happens to serve in Congress. Okay, when she says we need immigration because of Social Security and funding, stuff like that. Yes. But the caveat there is we need legal immigration, because legal immigration is what contributes to Social Security and funds the systems. What they’re encouraging on the Democratic side of town is anything but legal immigration. But going one step further, young people aren’t having kids. Yes, they’re waiting longer. But also, your party is championing the idea of not having kids as a badge, abort them. They’re walking around like that’s a badge of honor now. We went from abortion is safe, legal and rare to like ‘I’m so proud it’s abortion Tuesday.”

Joe Manchin may have voted to impeach Trump, but he isn’t entirely crazy. In what he calls a stance against “extremism” in the Democrat Party, Manchin announced he will fight the Democrats’ plans to do away with the legislative filibuster and push through whatever nonsensical and wasteful bills they want.

“If I haven’t said it very plain, maybe Sen. McConnell hasn’t understood, I want to basically say it for you. That I will not vote in this Congress, that’s two years, right? I will not vote” to change the filibuster, the West Virginia Democrat said in an interview earlier this week. “And I hope with that guarantee in place he will work in a much more amicable way.”

Manchin’s commitment to at least a level playing field in legislating did not go unnoticed. Pro-Life group Susan B. Anthony List thanked Manchin for refusing to kill the filibuster. Activists lined courthouses in three West Virginia cities, beginning in Charleston and ending in Wheeling.

Marilyn Musgrave, vice president of government affairs for the organization, says that the filibuster is the only thing stopping Democrats from a full-on pro-abortion agenda. “And yet we have Joe Manchin courageous enough to stand up to his own party and say he’s going to do the right thing and I tell you the people of West Virginia agree with him,” she says.

“This is so significant in saving babies that have not yet been born,” Musgrave adds. “This is a strong pro-life state and he’s representing those values very well when he retains the filibuster.”

The filibuster requires 60 “yea” votes and prevents the Democrats from using their majority to do whatever they want with no support from people who represent everyday Americans. Watch a report on Manchin’s shocking decision to do the right thing below:
