Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez equates her building with a rooftop pool and golf simulator to NYC public housing.
“Another world is possible,” she said. “We can live in buildings that are not-for-profit, or tenant-owned, there are so many ways we can slice this and we can structure it in a way where all people have the right to a dignified home. What we have been taught and what we have been conditioned is that basic rights are a luxury and a privilege when they are not.”
AOC lists her luxury apartment amenities:
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) downplayed the amenities available in her expensive Washington, D.C., apartment building last week, saying her unit was comparable to apartments in a new public housing complex in New York City.
Ocasio-Cortez made the comparison during a Bronx town hall, saying people have been conditioned to view things that should be available to everyone as “luxury” amenities.
“What we have been taught that [sic]is a luxury should not be a luxury,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
“Another world is possible,” she said. “We can live in buildings that are not-for-profit, or tenant-owned, there are so many ways we can slice this and we can structure it in a way where all people have the right to a dignified home.”
“What we have been taught and what we have been conditioned is that basic rights are a luxury and a privilege when they are not.”
Ocasio-Cortez came to this conclusion after touring a new public housing complex for senior citizens, noticing the units in the building “look just like my luxury apartment.” More
Wasn’t it just about 6 short months back when she was whining because she couldn’t afford a place to live until after she got her first Congress paycheck?
Sometimes I think AOC is living in a parallel universe and only phases into this universe long enough to shoot her mouth off about things that have nothing to do with life on this planet.
