House rookie Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says the existence of billionaires is “immoral” in her latest push against capitalism.
Ocasio-Cortez made the remarks during a forum in New York with author Ta-Nehisi Coates on Monday saying, “a system that allows billionaires to exist when there are parts of Alabama where people are still getting ringworm because they don’t have access to public health is wrong.”
The Democratic lawmaker went on to blast the minimum wage and corporations.
Her notoriety has grown in recent months over her criticism targeting the free market and her support of wealth redistribution.
Ocasio-Cortez is 29 years old and the youngest person to be elected to Congress.
