BREAKING: AOC urges special committee to look into lost hour from Daylight Saving Time bank

WASHINGTON, DC—In a bold move, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has called for a special congressional committee to investigate the lost hour from Daylight Saving Time. In a press conference, she argued that the lost hour represents a form of time theft that is harming American workers and families.

The move follows several high profile bank failures including that of Silicon Valley Bank, which is the largest failure since the Great Depression.

“Every year, we lose an hour of our lives to Daylight Saving Time, and it’s time we start taking that loss seriously,” Ocasio-Cortez declared. “This is an issue of basic fairness and justice. How can we expect hardworking Americans to keep giving up an hour of their time without any compensation? We need to investigate this lost hour and figure out where it’s going.”

The proposed committee would be tasked with determining the exact location of the lost hour, as well as any possible mechanisms for reclaiming it. Ocasio-Cortez suggested that the lost hour could be stored in a “Daylight Saving Time Bank” that would allow individuals to withdraw an extra hour of time whenever they need it.

Critics of the proposal have argued that Daylight Saving Time is a necessary measure to conserve energy and promote safety, and that the lost hour is a small price to pay for these benefits. They have also pointed out that the concept of a “Daylight Saving Time Bank” is not practical, since time cannot be stored or traded like a commodity.

However, Ocasio-Cortez has remained undeterred, and has continued to push for the special committee. She has emphasized that the lost hour represents a fundamental injustice that must be addressed.

“Time is the most precious resource we have, and we can’t keep letting it slip away,” she said. “If we don’t take action now, we risk losing even more time in the future. We owe it to ourselves and to future generations to investigate this lost hour and fight for our right to control our own time.”

Only time will tell if Ocasio-Cortez’s proposal will gain traction in Congress. But one thing is for sure: the lost hour from Daylight Saving Time is now a political issue that is not going away anytime soon.
