AOC RESPONDS: Ocasio-Cortez Defends $58 Sweatshirts Because ‘Transactions Aren’t Capitalism’

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.20.21

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez responded to growing criticism on social media Monday night after Reuters reported the Democratic Socialist spent $1.4 million on ‘Tax the Rich’ themed merchandise for her web store.

“Not sure if you know this Sean, but transactions aren’t capitalism. Capitalism is a system that prioritizes profit at any & all human/enviro cost. But [for what it’s worth] our shop is unionized, doesn’t operate for profit,& funds projects like free tutoring, food programs,& local organizing,” fired-back the lawmaker to former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer.

 

“Her campaign paid political merchandise firm Financial Innovations, which operates her online store and supplies merchandise, more than $1.4 million in the first six months of 2021, according to campaign disclosures to the Federal Election Commission late last week,” reports the Reuters News Agency.

“That is more than many lawmakers spent on their entire re-election efforts during the period, and nearly double her payments made over the prior two years to Financial Innovations, a Cranston, Rhode Island firm that specializes in political merchandise for Democrats,” adds the outlet.

“There’s the campaign finance aspect of it and, for lack of a better term, there’s the cult of personality aspect of it,” Ciara Torres-Spelliscy, who studies political branding at Stetson University, told Reuters.
