Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.). The ancient right-wing operative dismissively referred to the 29-year-old Congresswoman as “the little girl” with a big “mouth.” It didn’t take long for the brilliant Ocasio-Cortez to fire back with a zinger that may go down in history as one of the all-time great comebacks.
Newly elected U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York said Sunday that “death panels” currently exist in the United States. She said that the operation of the private health insurance market in effect condemns millions of people to sickness and death.
