New York congressional candidate and Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez does not believe that soccer moms in minivans represent America any longer.
During an interview on the podcast ‘Pod Save America’ Ocasio-Cortez was asked about her party being wary of her brand of socialism. The upstart socialist was asked about national Dems believing her policies are a “recipe for failure.”
Ocasio-Cortez proceeded to attack national Democrats, saying they were old and out of touch. Ocasio-Cortez said rank-in-file Democrats stuck in “90s politics.”
“They were campaigning most when we had more of an American middle class,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “This upper-middle class is probably more moderate, but that upper-middle class does not exist anymore in America.”
“Their heyday was in the 90s when kids had, like, Furbys, and soccer moms had, like, two vans. That’s not America anymore!” Ocasio-Cortez said.
Ocasio-Cortez blamed Wall Street and rising income inequality for destroying the economy.
Ocasio-Cortez recently claimed in an interview that unemployment is low because people are working “two jobs” and that people are working “70 or 80 hours a week.” These claims have been rated “pants on fire” by fact checkers.
