Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) bellyached about billionaires in several Twitter posts on Friday, but went silent after Elon Musk used the Democratic congresswoman’s own words against her.
AOC wrote on Twitter, “Billionaires be like ‘the extreme far left is taking over’ when the ‘extreme far left’ in the US is ‘medicine shouldn’t bankrupt you,’ ‘wages should cover rent,’ & ‘maybe it’s bad that Wall St companies profit off mass surveillance, manufactured housing crises, and caging people.’”
“The number of billionaires in the US couldn’t even fill an apartment building, but the number of people they negatively impact is only growing,” the democratic socialist wrote. “All the US billionaire votes combined couldn’t even come in 2nd for an NY city council election. That’s why they stay pressed.”
