But Scalise pulled out some not-so-lighthearted responses from Ocasio-Cortez's followers. "Instead of spending billions subsidizing oil and gas corporations and giving tax breaks to the wealthiest Americans, we can choose to put that money toward giving my generation a livable future and providing a good job to every American ready to get to work making our country stronger".More news: Manchester City hands Liverpool first loss of Premier League season
