Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez+ Your Authors @AOC US Representative,NY-14 (BX & Queens). In a modern, moral, & wealthy society, no American should be too poor to live. 💯% People-Funded, no lobbyist💰. She/her. Feb. 20, 2020 1 min read + Your Authors

In a time when ~60% of American workers make less than $40,000 a year, billionaires should not exist.

Also, billionaires don’t have a billion dollars because they “work” thousands of times harder than the teacher or the single mom.

They are billionaires because the stock market makes that money for them, which relies on profiteering off insulin, low wages, scrapped jobs, etc.

We need worker-centered policies that reign in Wall Street and value work - including a TON of unvalued and undervalued work, like caregiving.

The cost of system that concentrates a billion dollars in the hands of few powerful people is massive, devastating income inequality.
