Ocasio-Cortez: Politics ‘Heavy’ But That’s ‘Validation You’re Doing Something Real’

‘If you’re just trying to get your check ... then what’s the point in being in politics?’


OCASIO-CORTEZ: "No, I mean, it is heavy but in a weird way, that stuff is validation that you’re doing something real. Because if you’re just flying under the radar, if you’re just trying to get your check, like, not rock the boat, then what’s the point of being in politics? Like, what is the point of doing things if you're just trying to maintain a status quo that doesn't help people?"
