Wednesday on ABC’s liberal gabfest The View, “Democratic Socialist” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez declared that she didn’t believe billionaires should exist.
Asked if billionaire Democrat candidate Michael Bloomberg is trying to buy his way into the presidency, Ocasio-Cortez replied, “Yes, I do… And here’s the thing: is that, if the amount of money that you have can force the DNC to change their rules, but the DNC would not change their rules for Cory Booker, Julian Castro, Kamala Harris, that is an actualization of power.
“And we all know how I feel about billionaires,” she added. I don’t think that in a place where 60 percent of Americans can’t even, you know, make more than $40,000 a year, that the presence of a billionaire who largely makes their money off of businesses underpaying their workers like Walmart, like Amazon, like so on, should exist.”
No economic illiterate like Ocasion-Cortez could make it in the Republican Party, but among Democrats she is considered presidential material.
