Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said that Republicans are pushing nothing but culture war issues because they have no plan to make lives better.
Rep. Ocasio-Cortez was asked to describe the GOP’s vision on MSNBC’s Inside with Jen Psaki.
The reason Republicans are so focused on these culture wars and they’re so fixated on Trans Americans and LGBT Americans, and they’re fixated on what women do with their bodies it’s because they do not have a plan to improve the lives of working people across the country. They just don’t.
We haven’t heard a single hearing or idea that would fundamentally make people’s material lives better. They have no plan on health care, they have no plan on our economy. And in order to distract from their lack of vision, they are trying to attack some of the most vulnerable Americans in this country.
