Ocasio-Cortez: 80 Percent Male Congress ‘Creates Blind Spots in Our Legislation’
Ed. House of Reps. hopeful Alexandria
Ocasio-Cortez is a “Democrat” simply because she knows that neither the
Socialist Party nor the Communist Party could get her to Washington. She began
as an embarrassment to other Democrats, but now she has become downright
dangerous. After all, attacking her own Party because most of its elected members in
Washington are male? Shrewd!
Here's hoping MORE Ocasio-Cortez types win Democrat primaries in the near future! Conservatives can only benefit as the media continues to reveal her mind-numbing ignorance.

BRENNAN: So you reject the idea that your gender was a factor here?
OCASIO-CORTEZ: Um, you know, I think that you know I think that in this
moment, there’s a confluence of factors that makes this moment inspiring. Right
now more women than ever are running for office and I do think that women want
representation in Congress, absolutely. Congress right now is 80 percent male.
And that creates blind spots in our legislation. It means we don’t have family
leave, we don’t have paid maternal and parental leave. It means that we don’t
get the equal pay that we want. So I think those issues certainly were
BRENNAN: Well right now there is a female leader within the Democratic
Party, Nancy Pelosi. If you are lucky enough to win in November and come here

OCASIO-CORTEZ: You know, I need to get to Congress first. I need to
work on winning my general election, but I’m excited to–
BRENNAN: You don’t see her as the party leader?
OCASIO-CORTEZ: I mean she is the current party leader, absolutely. And
I look forward to be parting–to be part of that conversation and, and winning
back the House. There is no decision about the party leader until we win the
BRENNAN: So you are leaving open the possibility you may endorse her,
if you win in November?
