New York Daily News: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez rails against 'broken' political finance laws, takes aim at Trump and 'bad guys'
“Now I’m elected, now I’m in, I got the power to draft, lobby and shape the laws that govern the United States of America. Fabulous,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “Now, is there any hard limit that I have in terms of what legislation I’m allowed to touch…based on the special interests funds that I accepted?”
“There’s no limit,” said Karen Hobert Flynn, president of the nonpartisan watchdog group Common Cause.
Ocasio-Cortzed continued, “I can be totally funded by oil and gas, totally funded by big pharma and come in and write pharma laws?”
“That’s right,” Hobert Flynn said.
Wrapping up, Ocasio-Cortez then added, “We have a system that is fundamentally broken.”
