Ocasio-Cortez takes on Schultz

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Wednesday took a shot at former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz over his possible independent presidential bid. Taking an aim at his lack of political experience, Ocasio-Cortez questioned why such billionaire candidates not understand they need to ’work their way up’ or ’maybe they should start with city council first?’.

Maybe because they aren't dimwitted bartenders who have accomplished nothing of value and don't serve as a constant embarrassment to themselves and their country.

Because they worked their way to billionaire? It’s a lot harder than getting a thousand votes in a primary, even if you start out with a lot.

I have a strange feeling Cortez is going to be our "President Comancho" except she won't be nearly as fun to watch

Schultz coming from a poor Brooklyn family getting an athletic scholarship to go to Uni, getting his bachelors degree in business and marketing to work his way through a few companies including Starbucks. Turning the, then, small company of only 12 shops into an international powerhouse is quite literally "working your way up"!

it's crazy how people on here are against someone trying to level the playing field for the working class, and defend a billionaire that all he wants is to add another billion to his account.

I always want to know exactly what Occassio Cortez says in an effort to tap into the actual thought processes of the young progressive left. So mysterious.

Because they don’t need to. They met the requirements to run for office. Not to mention that they they are way more qualified than most of them in office. They actually either created or ran a business in the real world.

And you notice nobody is calling out occasional cortex? Her only life accomplishment is winning a primary by pure luck and not dyimg before election day.

Right, and how did this genius work her way up again? Wasn't she just a bartender before she got elected to congress? So what accomplishments, what contribution to society did she provide to get to where she is today? Oh, nothing, huh? She didn't do shit for anybody. And yet here she is, mouthing off about things she knows nothing about.

work their way up? As in from the lower levels of Congress all the way to president over years and years and years? No wonder she socialist, she'll be on the power side where she can control the money distribution. And it sounds like she plans to be there for quite some time. Is being a career politician in line with being a Democratic Socialist? For the people!
