Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez weighed-in this week on President Biden’s $2 trillion Infrastructure plan; saying the actual amount should be closer to $10 trillion over the next decade.
“The vision that President Biden and the administration has laid out … has surprised a lot of us in a positive way and in the detail and the thought that’s here, the scope of it, is really encouraging,” the Congresswoman told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow.
She went on to say the figure should be roughly five times higher than Biden’s proposal.

“I know that may be an eye-popping figure for some people, but we need to understand that we are in a devastating economic moment. Millions of people in the United States are unemployed. We have a truly crippled health care system and a planetary crisis on our hands, and we’re the wealthiest nation in the history of the world. So we can do $10 trillion,” she told Maddow.
