Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slams Harvard orientation for freshman lawmakers as ‘lobbyist project’ that hypes tax cuts for corporations

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has accused the orientation session for freshman lawmakers at Harvard’s Kennedy School of being a “pro-corporate lobbyist project ” that hypes tax cuts for corporations and argues against increasing the minimum wage.

The Democratic congresswoman-elect and other incoming House Democrats have been protesting their own congressional orientation program over the past week.

They argue that the orientation is inherently biased, being being made up of lobbyist and bankers, and with nobody to present workers or grassroots politics.

Ocasio-Cortez doubled down on her earlier criticism on Twitter on Sunday, saying that attendees at the orientation, which has been going on since the 1970s, “heard things like ‘the $2T tax cut was great’ and ‘$15 wage is a bad idea.’
