  • AOC was asked by MSNBC host Chris Hayes about what her plan is to “fix” the broken government. AOC said “Well, I think a lot of it has to do with changing our strategy around governance. You know, there’s a lot of inside baseball, inside the beltway, as you always hear that term thrown around. But … there are very few organizers in Congress. And I do think that organizers operate differently. It’s a different kind of strategy. And what it is … is really about organizing … and, and really thinking about that word. Organizing. Segmenting people. Being strategic in their actions. In really bringing together a cohesive strategy of putting pressure on the chamber, instead of only focusing on the pressures inside the chamber.”

  • “I wake up every day, and I’m a Puerto Rican girl from the Bronx. Every single day.” (She grew up and lived most of her life in the upscale Yorktown Heights area of Westchester, NY, NOT the Bronx)
  • “For me, democratic socialism is about – really, the value for me is that I believe that in a modern, moral and wealthy society, no person in America should be too poor to live.”
  • “Women like me aren’t supposed to run for office – I wasn’t born to a wealthy or powerful family. But we have to ask ourselves who has New York been changing for?” (She grew up in a $1.2 million home. In my book that is wealthy)

It is well past time that we in NY-14 had a true, lobbyist-free representative who lives in our community and fights on behalf of Bronx + Queens families. This movement for Congress is about education and healthcare; it’s about housing, jobs, justice, and civil rights. It’s is about preparing for the future of our environment, energy, and infrastructure. It’s about championing the dignity of our neighbors. And it’s about getting money out of politics.” (We’ll watch her and see how her income “grows” with her alliances with lobbyists and the political machine she says she abhors.)
