AOC seems upset by what she think is the loss of the House majority

Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has implied that the Democratic Party has lost its majority in the House of Representatives during a recent interview.

GOP researcher Tommy Pigott posted a video on Twitter which showed Ocasio-Cortez on a Zoom call with a constituent about the string of losses that Democrats endured in House races.

Ocasio-Cortez was asked:

“Why did we lose so many seats, and what needs to be done to get them back next term?”

AOC replied:

“So, you know, of course, um, loss of the House majority is just extraordinarily upsetting to all of us, um, it’s upsetting to all of us who, who are invested in having a Democratic majority so that we can expand health care, so that we can raise wages, so that we can protect working people."

'The idea that they may not be returning next term is extremely difficult on both just a personal and a policy and a political-level,' AOC said

“And it’s also personally very difficult, um, because to lose these people, you know, many of them are my colleagues, and I’m proud to call many of them my friend," the New York lawmaker continued.

"And the idea that they may not be returning next term is very, or that they aren’t returning next term, is extremely difficult on both just a personal and a policy and a political-level.”

WATCH:

But Democrats are keeping their majority in the House of Representatives, according to The Washington Post and The New York Times.

But the Democrats have lost seats to Republicans who are heading towards having significantly closed the gap in House seats.

AOC's remarks come after she revealed that she's been considering quitting politics altogether, despite recently being re-elected to Congress.

Ocasio-Cortez complained during an interview with The New York Times that her far-left agenda is not welcome in the Democratic Party.

Citing "stress" and "lack of support," AOC said she has been thinking about walking away from her political career and may "start a homestead somewhere" instead.
