Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., blasted the coronavirus response during her first virtual town hall Saturday, and ticked off a list of new priorities including universal basic income, student reimbursements and expanded health care.
The Bronx progressive voted early Saturday morning for the new bipartisan House legislation to offer paid sick days, expanded food assistance, emergency paid family leave and free coronavirus tests because it signified progress.
"It is a step forward, but it is completely insufficient," Ocasio-Cortez said Saturday during a video conference with her constituents on the pandemic response and the 2020 Census.
Ocasio-Cortez called for working families to get cash infusions, like the universal basic income idea of Andrew Yang, the former White House hopeful. Since many low-income workers will be forced out of jobs because of the nationwide shutdown of the commercial sector, Ocasio-Cortez said the moment calls for bold action for an economic safety net.
"We really need to make sure that we are advocating and pushing for immediate cash infusions," Ocasio-Cortez said. "We are asking for a complete halt to student loan payments, a halt on evictions nationwide. And we are also calling for mortgage relief."

SO they are going for a “nationwide shutdown of the commercial sector”
You cant spell Coronavirus without AOC!
I think her 15 minutes are over,
Any chance AOC was hanging with a virus hot spot in NYC?
The Woman Does Not Know The Meaning Of The Word Truth!
She wants constant attention, and she’s getting it.
Lots of cash. Just, nothing to spend it on.
What exactly is a “student reimbursement”? If I were young again, in college, I’d get all my studying done (yeah, right), and enjoy this break from school. If I had any student reimbursement it would go towards beer. I never asked government for money to buy beer, and I highly doubt most college kids are now.
Ha, I have a few thoughts where she might try hanging.
Absolutely, she’s a drama queen and a liar.
Yeah the liquor stores are closing.
Typical, entitlement mentality, millennial.

Who keeps giving her a voice? OMG, IGNORE.
For their college education. It is supposed to be free, according to AOC and Bernie
