 Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez On The View Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez responds to criticism that Sanders' policies are too radical. The congresswoman says Sen. Sanders inspired her to run for office and explains why she’s endorsing him: “We want to talk about health care... a living wage... women’s rights... he did this when it was least convenient.” “He was fighting for these things since before I was even born,” she adds.
