Some choice Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) quotes:
“Unemployment is low because everyone has two jobs. Unemployment is low because people are working 60, 70, 80 hours a week and can barely feed their family.”
“A 17-year-old can walk into a shop and purchase an assault weapon.” — WRONG! 17 year olds cannot buy any kind of gun in America. Under federal law, the minimum age to buy a handgun from a licensed dealer is 21. But the age limit drops to 18 if the gun is being purchased from a private, unlicensed seller, which could be a neighbor or someone online, or at gun show. (The Hill)
“We’re gonna flip this seat red” — She meant “blue”, but maybe she spoke the truth: “Red” as in communist red.
“She is, she is the leader of, of– no no, she, I mean, um, um, Speaker, or rather Leader Pelosi, hopefully, um, you know, we’ll see, she’s uh, she’s the current leader of the party and I think the party absolutely does have its leadership in the House, we our leadership in the Senate as well.”
“And let’s not forget that the reason that the Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act is because they ruled that each of these monthly payments that everyday Americans make is a tax. And so while it may not seem like we pay that tax on April 15th, we pay it every single month, or we do pay it tax season if we don’t buy, you know, these plans off of the exchange.”
“Americans have the sticker shock of healthcare as it is, and what we’re also not talking about is why aren’t we incorporating the cost of all the funeral expenses of those who died because they can’t afford access to healthcare? That is part of the cost of our system.”
By the way, she never said “Under capitalism, man oppresses man. Under socialism, it’s the other way around.” (FactCheck.org)
