Ocasio-Cortez Stirring people’s hopes and a nightmare for the Establishment

Ocasio-Cortez Stirring people’s hopes and a nightmare for the Establishment

In the hopes of keeping it, her mother cleaned houses and drove buses and, and Ocasio-Cortez-flush with a background in public policy and that economics degree from BU-took a job waitressing and bartending at a Mexican restaurant in Manhattan.

While Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez instantly became a young Democrat icon after running to the left of powerful incumbent Congressman Joseph Crowley and winning, the democratic socialist candidate is quickly turning into a style icon as well.

"This is the Yorktown Heights (very nice area) home @Ocasio2018 grew up in before going off to Ivy League Brown University".

Ocasio-Cortez, 28, worked as an organizer for Sen.

"No person in American should be too poor to live", she said. I completely disagree with her solutions, but she is listening to her community.

Ocasio-Cortez would be just one of millions of millennials who came from an upwardly mobile middle class and then couldn't sustain that level of economic success.

A second tweet called out Cardillo's cheap shot directly: "Your attempt to strip me of my family, my story, my home, and my identity is exemplary of how scared you are of the power of all four of those things".

Crowley received only 42 percent of the vote, while Ocasio-Cortez earned 58 percent, the New York Times reported.

John Cardillo, in response to the fierce rebuttal, said that he stood corrected about Ocasio-Cortez's alma mater, but continued to insist that the NY Democratic candidate was not being wholly truthful about her past.

A far cry from the Bronx hood upbringing she's selling. Republicans typically exalt people who are financially successful, so it's not clear why this would be a problem for them.

Colbert asked her more about her platform and democratic socialism.
