Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slammed capitalism and the US economy during an interview on Thursday.
“To me, capitalism at its core, what we’re talking about when we talk about that, is the absolute pursuit of profit at all human, environmental, and social cost,” the champagne socialist said in an interview with Yahoo! Finance’s Andy Serwer.
“They can control our labor. They can control massive markets that they dictate and can capture governments,” AOC said claiming a small group of capitalists control everything.
“And they can essentially have power over the many. And to me that is not a redeemable system for us to be able to participate in for the prosperity and peace for the vast majority of people,” she said.

AOC is your typical champagne socialist who enjoys the finer things in life whilst looking down at the peasants from her ivory tower.
AOC wore a ‘tax the rich’ dress to the Met Gala in 2021 and it was revealed the dress’s designer owes tens of thousands of dollars in business taxes in multiple states.
