Twenty-nine-year-old Socialist U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on the widespread criticism of her Green New Deal: “I’m like, you try. Until you do it, I’m the boss! How about that?”

Still, the former Bernie Sanders volunteer was elected by energizing young and minority voters who thought she was cool. She beat 10-term Democrat incumbent Joe Crowley, the 4th ranking House Democrat in a massive upset, winning 57.5% of the primary election vote. Crowley had not faced a challenger from his own party in 14 years. He was often mentioned as a replacement for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
It’s past time to pay attention as the new, undereducated Left rises.
