In a recent social media video, Ocasio-Cortez highlighted her 23 major achievements in 2023, including demanding Justice Thomas's resignation.
Earlier in the year, a detailed report by ProPublica shed light on alleged ethics violations by Justice Thomas.
It claimed he accepted numerous lavish gifts and trips, raising serious ethical concerns.
Following the ProPublica revelations, Ocasio-Cortez urged the Department of Justice to launch an investigation into Thomas's conduct. This call was echoed by senior Democratic members of key House committees.
Her actions didn’t stop there. Ocasio-Cortez also called for Thomas's impeachment, intensifying the scrutiny on the Supreme Court Justice, Washington Examiner reported.
Rep. Ocasio-Cortez, known for her progressive stance, used her platform to push for various causes throughout the year. These included expanding the Green New Deal, advocating for a ceasefire in Gaza, and lifting the ban on psychedelics research.
In a show of solidarity, Ocasio-Cortez stood with Hollywood workers during their strike. Her commitment to labor rights was evident in her support for these workers.
Besides her domestic endeavors, Ocasio-Cortez also focused on international relations. She traveled to South Korea, Japan, and South America, underscoring her global perspective.
Her advocacy extended beyond traditional political boundaries, embracing both environmental and global issues. This multifaceted approach has been a hallmark of her tenure.
Ocasio-Cortez's recapitulation of her accomplishments offers a glimpse into her priorities and effectiveness as a lawmaker, while also pointing out her flawed perspectives on change, specifically with the Supreme Court.
Her actions throughout the year, particularly regarding Justice Thomas and her global outreach, have made a significant impact on the political landscape. Unfortunately, much like her past, she has continued to cause a divide between the two parties.
