‘Not a left party’: OCCASIONAL CORTEX CALLS THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY A ‘CENTER-CONSERVATIVE PARTY’

WASHINGTON EXAMINER

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said the Democratic Party leans to the right of the political center. The New York Democrat spoke at a Martin Luther King Jr. Day event held in Harlem’s Riverside Church on Monday. While there, the 30-year-old lawmaker claimed that the United States lacks a “left party” politically. “We don’t have a left party in the United States.

So, this is not a left party,” she continued, referring to a policy proposal that would provide health insurance to all while eliminating private insurance options. “There are a lot of true believers that we can ‘capitalism’ our way out of poverty in the Democratic Party. If anything, that’s probably the majority.”
