Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slammed her Republican colleagues on social media Monday; saying the GOP “treats our country as a joke” and routinely “plays games with people’s lives.”

“When Republicans say our nation’s laws are ‘just a joke,’ they mean it. They treat our country as a joke, our communities as a joke, and our future as a joke. For the GOP, as long as the rich get richer, they are happy to play games with American lives,” posted Ocasio-Cortez on social media.

AOC’s critique comes hours after she called for the abolishment of prisons across the United States.

“Mass incarceration is our American reality. It is a system whose logic evolved from the same lineage as Jim Crow, American apartheid, & slavery. To end it, we have to change. That means we need to have a real conversation about decarceration & prison abolition in this country,” posted Ocasio-Cortez on social media.

The far-left lawmaker made similar comments last week; saying there should be no billionaires throughout the United States.

“‘Billionaires should not exist’ does not mean certain people should not exist. It means no person should have a billion dollars. The ascent of billionaires is a symptom & outcome of an immoral system that tells people affordable insulin is impossible but exploitation is fine,” posted AOC on Twitter.
