OCASIO-CORTEZ: “Well you know, I think, it's -- it is a funny moment because everyone wants to fight against these policies until they have been personally impacted, and we’ve seen this not just economically, but we’ve also seen it in terms of social rights as well, you know? There are so many people that were against LGBT marriage equality until they realized, oh, wait, my friend, my son, my daughter, my, you know, my loved ones have come out of the closet, and I think that vulnerability, that personal vulnerability, really brings a lot of people around. And what we’re seeing right now is that guaranteeing health care in this country is not about giving charity to people. It affects all of us. When the person who is preparing your food and serves you food, cannot have — cannot see a doctor, that puts you at risk, that puts all of us at risk.”
