Socialist superstar Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continued her all-out assault on the American capitalist model Monday; saying it’s “immoral” that billionaires are allowed to exist in the United States.

Cortez was speaking at an event commemorating Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. when she was asked if we “live in a moral world that allows for billionaires? Is that a moral outcome in and of itself?”

“No, it’s not. It’s not. I think it’s important to say that I don’t think that means all billionaires are immoral. It’s not to say that someone like Bill Gates is immoral,” fired-back Cortez.

“I think a system that allows billionaires to exist when there are parts of Alabama where people are still getting ringworm because they don’t have access to public health is wrong,” she added.
