Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.) in a recent interview slammed Congress as a “s–t show” and said that the failure to extend the child tax credit through the Build Back Better Act has led to the rise in crime seen in cities across the country.

The progressive congresswoman explained to the New Yorker in an interview published Monday that Congress is a “s–t show” and is “scandalizing” every day.

“What is surprising to me is how it never stops being scandalizing,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “Some folks perhaps get used to it, or desensitized to the many different things that may be broken, but there is so much reliance on this idea that there are adults in the room, and, in some respect, there are. But sometimes to be in a room with some of the most powerful people in the country and see the ways that they make decisions—sometimes they’re just susceptible to groupthink, susceptible to self-delusion.”

She also suggested that the U.S. may no longer have a democracy in the years to come, prompting the interviewer to press her on the matter.
