Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez scorches Kris Kobach at Census hearing: 'I want to know about the racism'

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on Wednesday lambasted the Trump administration and former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach for a plot to include a citizenship question on the census.

At a House Oversight hearing, Ocasio-Cortez demanded to get to the bottom of how the Trump administration short-circuited the process of creating a census so that the citizenship question could be included.

“The Census is a constitutionally mandated operation that we are required to implement every 10 years,” she told the committee. “Any change to the census — the addition of a question — usually takes five years of a process to make sure that it is vetted, that every word has been tested, to make sure that it is effective because it is one of the most important things that we do.”

According to the congresswoman, more than two years were “shaved off” the census process.

1. Two things that proves AOC is awesome..........

1. The quality of her questions - they get to the heart of the matter and ask for clear explanations for what happened.

2. She REALLY PISSES OFF the Repugs and WingNuts!

4. We need more like her.

That is why I’m so against the new policy of blackballing people who work for anyone who primaries an incumbent. That policy just protects too many of the older Democrats who just go along to get along. We need people like AOC and Katie Porter. I’m sure both scare the bejesus out of Republicans.

5. With people like her and Mayor Pete, The Democratic Party is going to be okay.

I absolutely love AOC. She's intelligent and she can turn a GOP insult right back on them. They are right to be afraid of her.

I hope there are a lot more like her that get into politics. The young people like her and Mayor Pete are the future of the party and they make it look bright.
