VIDEO: Ocasio-Cortez raises eyebrows with new claims about middle class and ‘attacks’ on her
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by DAILYCALLER.COM:
New York congressional candidate and socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez does not believe there is an “upper middle class” in American any longer, a point even liberal news networks contest.
Ocasio-Cortez has made some fairly eyebrow raising statements on the economy in America during her meteoric rise to stardom in the Democratic party. Ocasio-Cortez has claimed that unemployment is low because people are working “two jobs” and that people are working “70 or 80 hours a week.” These claims have been rated “pants on fire” by fact checkers.
The article goes on to state the following:
Ocasio-Cortez is continuing the habit of claiming economically dubious data in public. In a recent interview, Ocasio-Cortez was asked about how rank-in-file Democrats are hesitant about the party embrace of socialism. On the podcast ‘Pod Save America’ Ocasio-Cortez was asked about Dems who think “We should not go down this path” to further socialism, “This is a recipe for failure.”
Ocasio-Cortez launched a broadside against the older Democratic establishment saying, “We don’t have a party that has been investing in their future,” noting that the average age of a congressional Democrat is 65. Ocasio-Cortez lamented that national dems are too busy “working on their own reelection” to make an “investment” in future party leadership. She said that national Democrats are stuck in “90’s politics.”
“They were campaigning most when we had more of an American middle class,” Ocasio-Cortez said, “This upper middle class is probably more moderate but that upper middle class does not exist anymore in America.”

Additionally, the WASHINGTON FREE BEACON reported that Ocasio-Cortez tweeted that the “right” was attacking her in order to cause a distraction about the indictment of GOP Congressman Chris Collins:
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted Wednesday the “Right is being particularly feisty towards me” as a means of distracting from the indictment of Republican Rep. Chris Collins (N.Y.).
The young democratic socialist endorsed five candidates competing in various primary races on Tuesday, but only two of them won. Several outlets pointed out the struggles of candidates she supported, leading her to charge that the criticism of her was due to the news about Collins, who was charged Wednesday with fraud and making false statements as part of an insider trading scheme.
“Whenever the Right is being particularly feisty towards me, the first thing I do is check to see which bad news of theirs they’re trying to distract from. Lo and behold,” she tweeted, linking to a story about Collins, who is a strong Trump White House supporter.
