WATCH: AOC “Our country is going hungry and the week before Thanksgiving the Senate broke”

In an emotional speech, Progressive Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Friday “Our country is going hungry and the week before Thanksgiving the Senate broke. I don’t care what party you are.”

She added “It is an abandonment of responsibilities as elected officials who are charged with acting in the public trust.”

AOC “So, if there’s anything I have left to say – because I want to know if there’s anyone out there listening – its that if you are are a working family, if you’re struggling to get the food that you need, if you feel like you’re on the brink of eviction. We see you.”
“What I ask from the Senate, and what I ask from our Republican colleagues in the Senate; is to act as if you were the one that was going hungry. Act as if you were getting evicted from your house. Act with that urgency.”
