Her American name is Ocasio, same as her father. Cortez in her mothers last name so she’s using her mothers maiden name plus her fathers last name. She’s 29 and unmarried. Her architect father Sergio Ocasio moved the family to a home in Yorktown Heights, a wealthy suburb in Westchester County that ranks #8 in the nation for the counties with the “highest average incomes among the wealthiest one percent of residents.” According to the Economic Policy Institute, the county’s average annual income of the top one percent is a staggering $4,326,049.

Ocasio’s childhood was hardly the stuff of average Hispanics. Yorktown Heights, specifically, offers a sharp contrast from Bronx living. According to USA.com, the town’s population is 81 percent white, and median household income is $96,413 – nearly double the average for both New York state and the nation, according to data from 2010-2014.

In the 14th Congressional District Democrats outnumber Republicans 6 to 1.
Obama got 80% of the vote in 2012. Ocasio only got 57% She should have gotten 6226 more votes to be as popular as Obama. Her victory is not as great as it’s being made out to be. She was supported by George Soros’ MoveOn.org.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez won the Democratic primary by only 4,136 votes out of 27,658 cast in one of the most gerrymandered and overwhelmingly (50%) Hispanic districts in the world. She’s already pushing for Chinese Style unlimited medical care paid for by the government. The government will get the money from the taxpayers. That guarantees expensive but poor medical care. Everybody likes free stuff but free stuff from the government doesn’t exist. People pay more because the costs keep increasing because there’s nothing to stop the increases. The taxes keep increasing because the politicians have a great excuse to raise the taxes…they simply say “We want the best medical care for the people.” The problems are manifold. First because no one gets great medical care when the government is in charge. Second only the worst doctors will work for the government. The best doctors want as much money as they can get and that means private medical care. The British government run healthcare system may “guarantee” access to care — but that doesn’t mean patients actually receive it.
In a Socialized Medical System the incentives are wrong. The government’s main priority is keeping costs low — not providing quality care. Patients can’t choose how or when they receive their care — it’s one-size-fits-all medicine. And the bureaucracy has no reason to improve efficiency.
In Canada where they have Socialized Health Care nearly a quarter of chronically ill respondents said they had skipped their medications or neglected to fill a prescription because it was too expensive.

Many Canadians travel to the United States and pay out of pocket for treatments and procedures, because the wait in Canada is too long and harmful to their health.  

That’s the “Progressivism in the United States”  position on medical care. Ortiz is a dues paying card-carrying member of  the Democratic Socialists of America, which supports Medicare for All. Ocasio-Cortez, wants to abolish U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. She wants to implement a federally imposed $15 per hour minimum wage. She wants to ban assault weapons — as the Democrats define assault weapons, of course. But more than all that: She wants to tear down all that this country represents, all that makes this country great, all that’s been in this nation’s DNA since its founding.
Ortez wants a Jobs Guarantee. She wants tuition-free public college. She favors ending the privatization of prisons; and she wants more gun-control. 

Ocasio-Cortez has criticized Israel’s foreign policy, calling the killing of Palestinian protesters on the Gaza border on May 14, 2018, a “massacre”. 

She supports abolishing ICE, and has called it “a product of the Bush-era Patriot Act suite of legislation” and “an enforcement agency that takes on more of a paramilitary tone every single day”.  

She has called immigration detention centers operated by the Department of Homeland Security Black Sites citing limited public access to those locations. That’s simply nuts. 

On June 28, 2018, Ocasio-Cortez told CNN she would support the Impeachment of Donald Trump saying “I would support impeachment” and “I think that, you know, we have the grounds to do it.”
