We’ll cut to the chase: In an interview with David Remnick of “The New Yorker,” Democrat Alexandria-Ocasio Cortez warned there’s a “very real risk” the United States will not still be a democracy in a decade.

Known for her progressive, refreshing views, the New York congresswoman believes the Republican-led pressure on political systems is so great that there is “a very real risk” democracy will cease to exist in the US within a decade.

In the interview, she added that the clock was ticking for Joe Biden and other Democratic leaders to do anything about it, with huge chunks of the president’s agenda, including legislation to protect voting rights, stalled in Congress by more conservative or moderate members of her own party.

“Honestly, it is a shitshow,” Ocasio-Cortez said of working in the same Democratic-controlled Congress.

“We don’t have much time,” she said. “The president has not been using his executive power to the extent that some would say is necessary.”
