Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Her First Weeks in Congress

“We take you behind the scenes as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the freshman New York representative, joins Intercept editors Ryan Grim and Briahna Joy Gray for an in-depth conversation about her approach to politics and social media, her thoughts on the 2020 presidential election, and her out-of-nowhere congressional campaign. As a new member of the House Financial Services Committee, she’s already shaping the conversation with her call to raise the top marginal tax rate to 70 percent. Former North Carolina Rep. Brad Miller, a progressive Democrat who served for years on the Financial Services Committee, also joins the conversation to talk about the challenges Ocasio-Cortez will face there.”
