Firebrand Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez attacked capitalism itself in an interview, Saturday, calling it “irredeemable.”
The Hill has more:
“To me, capitalism is irredeemable,” she added, arguing that capitalism’s goals come at a cost to people and the environment, Bloomberg reported.
The congresswoman, who has described herself as a democratic socialist, added during her interview that “we should be scared.”
“Just as there’s all this fearmongering that government is going to take over every corporation and government is going to take over every business or every form of production, we should be scared right now because corporations have taken over our government,” she said.
Ocasio-Cortez also said that the “emphasis in democratic socialism is on democracy” and expanding the rights of workers.
