MSNBC: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is having a huge impact on political discourse and the Democratic party, with several potential Presidential candidates reacting to her and criticizing her economic agenda, including Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, who is considering running as an Independent candidate. Venture Capitalist and entrepreneur, Nick Hanauer, tells Ari Melber that Ocasio-Cortez is advocating “for economic policies that benefit the broad majority of citizens” which is in fact more.
"It's easy to call what 'AOC' (Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez) is doing as far-lefty, but nothing could be farther from the truth. When you advocate for economic policies that benefit the broad majority of citizens that's true centrism. What Howard Schultz represents, the centrism that he represents is really just trickle-down economics," Hanauer said Wednesday.
"He is not the centrist, AOC is the centrist," Hanauer added.
