Ocasio-Cortez: Guaranteed Housing Comes Before A Person’s ‘Privilege To Earn A Profit’



Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) demanded at a town hall event in the Bronx on Thursday that everybody be given “access” to guaranteed homes before anyone is allowed the “privilege to earn a profit.”

“We have to make sure that housing is being legislated as a human right,” Ocasio-Cortez arrogantly stated. “What does that mean? What it means is that our access and our ability and our guarantee to having a home comes before someone else’s privilege to earn a profit.”

The 29-year-old former bartender said that the tax code needed to be changed, saying that the government needs to remove “tax breaks for bad behavior.”

“I want to make sure that we connect some dots because when we introduced the Green New Deal we were saying what is a girl from the Bronx doing and talked about environmentalism that doesn’t make any sense, right?” Ocasio-Cortez continued. “Wrong. Because one of the big things that we talked about was that we need to clean our buildings. … When we talk about our right to a clean home, when we talk about retrofitting buildings, what we’re talking about is cleaning our air and cleaning our water because when we talk about what housing as a right means, it doesn’t mean that you have a right to four crumbling walls and a dirty floor.”

“What it means is that we all have a right to dignified housing, good heat, responsible structures, low noise, clean air, and clean water at an affordable price! At an affordable price!” Ocasio-Cortez ranted.

Ocasio-Cortez then documented getting her luxury apartment in Washington, D.C.

“I come into this building and it’s marketed a luxury building in D.C., right?” Ocasio-Cortez continued. “I move into this luxury building in D.C. and what does it have? It’s an efficient building, it’s clean, it has public space, it has a rooftop garden, y’all watch my Instagram, it has all of these things, it has clean air, it has clean water.”

“And I think about this and I’m like this is what a luxury building is like, right?” Ocasio-Cortez added. “What we have been taught that is a luxury, should not be a luxury.”

    Is everyone taking notes?

  • spatin says:

    If a person does not earn a profit first, where is the money for the “right” to housing going to come from?

  • William conley says:

    Yeah fuck those people who want to earn a profit let’s make sure even the laziest of pile of shit in human form gets more free shit handed to them. The fact this blatant literal moron even still had a fan base makes me want to vomit and ask do you people support her because she panders to you lazy asses or are you just that damn low IQ hell it could be both.

  • Bonnie says:

    This is another wild eyed Pelosi mentality giving women a bad reputation. Businesses and working people earning money in the private sector pay taxes and regulation fees that pay for everything in government. It’s already wholesale robbery of those who provide everything we need and use. God it is unbelievable that such mental and moral delinquents are running our gov. She needs to read the kids story about Robinhood, and she might understand a little more. Ah yes…as the saying goes…”history repeats.” Those in charge reflect those who put them in charge. Well, easy to see why the Democrats don’t want voter IDs.

  • AnnS says:

    Best of all, she got to discover the GARBAGE DISPOSAL!

  • Dragonfly43 says:

    Can this moron get any more stupid? God, I can’t believe anyone with even a few brain cells would pay any attention to her. I repeat: She was fired in 2008 from Hot Dog on a Stick for incompetence! I believe all her screaming about free crap is she plans on running for president when she’s old enough. God help us should she ever be elected to anything more!

  • Howard says:

    This person is totally INSANE! She opens her mouth and everything falls out!

  • Cynthia says:

    No profit, no increase in jobs, more layoffs until the business closes and no money going into the government to pay for all of her freebies. Hey moron, now what?
