Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez remains unfazed by criticism of her policy ideas.

In, Ocasio-Cortez lashed out at people who pointed out that $2.5 billion of the $3 billion represented future tax breaks - not a large pile of cash that could now be spent elsewhere. "What is the point of doing things if you're just trying to maintain the status quo that doesn't help people?"
