Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has become a household name for every liberal leaning Latino and young progressive. Her simple presence in Congress is breaking records. She’s the youngest person ever elected to Congress and just celebrated her 29th birthday. She refused to take any contributions from corporations and said the average donation amount was $17 from working class people who believe in a representative who refuses to represent corporate values.
Ocasio-Cortez hasn’t even been sworn in yet and she’s giving us all an insight into what it’s like to be a freshman in Congress via Instagram stories and essentially live tweeting the whole process while we all look on.
