It’s no surprise that democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has endorsed democratic socialist candidate Bernie Sanders, but you get the sense that even Sanders isn’t quite far enough left for her. She ran as a Democrat, though, but now she’s having dust-ups with the DCCC over not paying her dues … what did the Democrats ever do for her?
She must really be chafing at that Democrat label because in this interview, she contends that the Democratic Party is a center or center-conservative party with some members still believing in capitalism.

That’s really, really hard to swallow after watching the past several Democratic debates with each candidate pushing the others further Left. The Green New Deal, free college, free child care, student loan cancellation, open borders and free medical care for illegal immigrants? Sure!
I honestly can’t tell if she’s been brainwashed or just has the mental capacity of a stapler

@aoc is delusional if she believes what she is spewing

Only a far left loon would believe that.

According to a lot of Democrat voters, Joe Biden is a Republican now.
Not in this universe.

So if that's the case then why is she a Dem and why would leftists ever vote for Dem candidate?

Center conservative party? In what world is that even close to being true.

AOC’s correct. Compared to her extreme Leftist-Communist vision for America? The Dem Party is more conservative. People don’t get it. AOC seeks to undermine and destroy the very pillars of our Society in each and every meaningful way possible. Status quo DESTRUCTION is her goal.

Wow…. talk about denial. It is extremely far left. The democrats of 20 years or more ago … just look at their policies compared to today

So she watched a documentary on YouTube about European political parties, picked out a comment about where American political parties reside relative to Europeans, and ran with it. Much like her Green Deal came from @Cowspiracy on @netflix . Open a book AOC#FFS

She’s a college graduate and a legislator? Yikes.

She doesn't have a clue on ANY issue. Zero life experience other than living in the fantasy land of Acedemia, listen to her for two minutes (if you can) & it's obvious.
Boston University called, they want their Economics degree back.

'Deadbeat socialist': Apparently AOC's pissing off some House Dem colleagues for refusing to pay her DCCC dues https://t.co/yfgKdNthVv
