Ocasio-Cortez: Dems Have Compromised Too Much

In a 60 Minutes interview that aired Sunday night, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) stated that Democrats have “compromised too much.”

“My personal opinion, and I know that my district, my community feels this way as well, is that we as a party have compromised too much and we’ve lost too much of who we’re supposed to be and who we are,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

Asked if she means the Democratic Party, Ocasio-Cortez said, “I think so. I think we’ve compromised things we shouldn’t have compromised whether it’s judgeship with Mitch McConnell, whether it’s compromising on climate change, I think there’s some things that we’ve compromised a little bit too much on but am I open to compromise on certain ways to get things done, absolutely.”
