posted by Hannity Staff - 4.05.19

Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slammed the American capitalistic model Thursday evening; urging “young people” to question the “larger economic forces in their lives.”

“How on earth could young people, whose: -wages are flat -costs of living skyrocketing -experiencing increased social instability via bigotry, addiction, + violence -expected to live shorter lifespans than previous gens dare question the larger economic forces in their lives?!” tweeted Ocasio-Cortez.

Ocasio-Cortez’ comments come days after her ‘Green New Deal’ failed to secure a single “Yes” vote in the US Senate, with her Democratic colleagues voting “present” when the massive government program came to the floor.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez blasted the American economic model during a speech in Texas over the weekend; saying “capitalism” was “not redeemable” because it places “profit” over the “human and environmental cost.”

“The tough part about this, about like, is capitalism redeemable? For me, when I think about what those definitions are, capitalism isn’t, to me, it’s an ideology of capital. The most important thing is the concentration of capital,” claimed Cortez.

“It means that we seek and prioritize profit […] above all else. We seek it at any human and environmental cost. That is what that means. To me, that ideology is not sustainable and cannot be redeemed,” she added.

Vermont Senator and potential 2020 candidate Bernie Sanders set his sights on “fossil fuel billionaires” Monday; saying the United States needs a “political revolution” to turn the country towards “clean energy.”

Sanders posted his incendiary comments on social media this week; slamming President Trump’s tax cuts as an outright “lie” to middle class Americans.

“During Trump’s campaign, he repeatedly promised the American people that ‘the rich would not gain at all’ from his tax plan. He said it would provide a ‘big-league tax cut for the middle class.’ He lied. It’s time for an economy that works for all of us, not just the rich,” Sanders tweeted.

The self-described Democratic Socialist is widely believed to planning another run for the White House in the coming months; refusing to deny his political ambitions when asked in recent interviews.
