‘Not a left party’: AOC calls the Democratic Party a ‘center-conservative party’

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said the Democratic Party leans to the right of the political center.

The New York Democrat spoke at a Martin Luther King Jr. Day event held in Harlem’s Riverside Church on Monday. While there, the 30-year-old lawmaker claimed that the United States lacks a “left party” politically.

“We don’t have a left party in the United States. The Democratic Party is not a left party,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “The Democratic Party is a center or center-conservative party.

“We can’t even get a floor vote on Medicare for All, not even a floor vote that gets voted down. So, this is not a left party,” she continued, referring to a policy proposal that would provide health insurance to all while eliminating private insurance options. “There are a lot of true believers that we can ‘capitalism’ our way out of poverty in the Democratic Party. If anything, that’s probably the majority.”
