  1. Yeah he talk to the hip so smugly and then two days later make a ten million dollar deal from Netflix for herself for doing it supposed documentary the hypocrisy is just amazing typical Democrat say one thing and then do it herself

  2. Imagine that, we now have a congresswoman who is honest and actually says it the way it is. Isn't that refreshing! We need many, many more like AOC in congress.
    Power to the people not to corporations.

  3. The best in statesmanship, Congressional savoir-fare I have seen in years in the style of Bernie Sanders, Kennedy and great politician. One clever Porto Rican

  4. Well a lot of Americans want a change,original grass root ideas and suggestions, so now they have it,,,anyone for Patty Cake at the next session.

  5. She is right about it, the system is broken and it needs to be fixed, but the solution is not the Socialism. Socialism will make everything worse

  7. A politician on the republican side should come out and say the same things about how the corruption in our government is really bad

  8. She does realize who she's really talking about, doesn't she? Namely, people like Bernie Sanders (her socialist mentor/VT senator), Hillary Clinton (when she was a senator), Nancy Pelosi (CA house rep/speaker), Chuck Schumer (NY house rep), Cuomo (NY gov), Warner (Mass. sen.), Feinstein (CA sen.), Obama (when he was a IL senator and president), John McCain (when he was AZ sen.), both Bushes, Bill Clinton, etc. etc. But, yet, AOC implies that the bad guys are the ones that are actually fighting against these types of people being infiltrated into Congress, and who always get their dark donor money from Big Pharma, gas and oil companies, foreign entities, Soros, Rothschild, etc. The "bad guys" are the same politicians that wrote it into law that corporations can "lobby" for pay-to-play special interest funding and loophole implementation into these very same laws, while they're being written and legislated, and it's protected as "free speech", even though money exchanged hands. This is bribery, not lobbying, yet they can legally do it because of the loopholes that are written into the laws and approved by the majority who's in charge at the time. This is why they keep hollering about the "rule of law". They're really talking about their "rule of loopholes." This is why corrupt politicians will do anything so they can stay in power, and keep ruling over the rest of us like they've been doing for way too long. None of this bribery money ever goes into the American citizens' pockets, and the decisions and laws that are made don't benefit the common man either. But, since the government doesn't generate any money on its own because they only provide services and not goods, then we, the people, give them our taxpayer money, which they force upon us, whether we want to give it to them or not. And then these crooked politicians do whatever they want with our money, and give us back any services beneficial to us very little in return. It's like a giant Ponzi scheme, and we always stay at the very bottom, right where the flimsy house of cards is on the verge of collapsing at all times. It's a wonder it hasn't already come crashing down. Maybe one day, people will wake up and see who the real criminals are that she is inadvertently and maybe even unconsciously talking about here. Maybe she'll even wake herself up if she keeps on talking about the "bad guys". One can only hope and pray that others will begin to see the light, and stop this wreck of a train that we're all on, before we run out of tracks.
