Many times, when Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar talk, it’s their lips that move but the voice of Karl Marx that comes pouring out. In videos posted Thursday night by The Hill, Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and Omar, D-Minn., suggested a radical transformation of significant parts of the American economy that are essential for fighting the effects of the coronavirus. After complaining that America’s “systemic priorities” are all wrong, AOC said, “We have to start demanding and organizing from the bottom up – from grassroots movements, from nurses to warehouse workers to grocery store employees to the halls of Congress, demanding that we strip profit motive out of our decisions and reprioritize for the public good and the health of everyday people.”
