Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Says All Americans Should Have the Affordable Healthcare she now gets as a Congresswoman

She’s right. Why we aren’t in the streets protesting about this every, single, day just astounds me.

Representative-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez criticized the disparities in healthcare offered to regular citizens and lawmakers and advocated reforming the healthcare system.

“In my on-boarding to Congress, I get to pick my insurance plan,” the incoming New York legislator tweeted on Saturday evening.

“As a waitress, I had to pay more than TWICE what I’d pay as a member of Congress. It’s frustrating that Congressmembers would deny other people affordability that they themselves enjoy. Time for #MedicareForAll.”
