Democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Tuesday that an upper-middle-class “with soccer moms with two vans and stuff” no longer exists in America, The Daily Caller reported.
During an interview on the podcast ‘Pod Save America’ Ocasio-Cortez was asked about her party being wary of her brand of socialism. The Ocasio-Cortez was asked about national Democrats believing her policies are a “recipe for failure.”
She immediately attacked Democrats as a whole, saying that they are currently old and out of touch and that current seat-holding Democrats are 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. Naturally, socialism is the answer to all of our economic problems, right?
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.
You may be thinking, “wow, she sounds crazy.” Well, you are right. Ocasio-Cortez is what I like to call a confident liar. Confident liars are people who tend to speak with a lot of confidence, however, much of the time, they have no idea what they’re talking about at the time.
