Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has it all wrong in her claim that she’s the “boss,” according to one of the youngest names in the conservative movement, CJ Pearson.
While Pearson is only in high school, he is taking on the congresswoman and letting her know something “she should have learned in her high school government class.”
“You are no one’s boss,” Pearson said in a video uploaded to Twitter.
“America is a government for the people and by the people,” the conservative continued. “So if anyone is the boss, it is we the people.”
“We are the reason you get paid every month through our taxes,” he told the Democrat congresswoman. “We’re the reason you even have a title of ‘congresswoman,’ congresswoman.”
During an interview at the New York Hall of Science with Girls Who Code Founder and CEO Reshma Saujani, Ocasio-Cortez said she was the new leader of Congress until others step up and present solutions to today’s problems.
The congresswoman, who first joined Congress during the November election last year says she’s “the boss” of her congressional colleagues until they start leading on legislative efforts.
“Like I just introduced the Green New Deal two weeks ago, and it’s creating all of this conversation. Why? Because no one else has even tried. Because no one else has even tried,” Ocasio-Cortez said, via the Washington Examiner.
“So people are like, ‘Oh, it’s unrealistic. Oh, it’s vague. Oh, it doesn’t address this little minute thing,'” the congresswoman continued. “And I’m like, ‘You try. You do it. Cuz you’re not. Cuz you’re not. So, until you do it, I’m the boss.’ How about that?'”

Pearson added: “And to listen to you, drunk on power, as you sat on that stage, was nothing more than a front to the office that you hold and a front to the role of public servant that you have in our society.”
“Now I understand if you slept through that class as you evidently slept through your economics class at Boston University, but it is something you need to know because it is something quite obviously that you are unfamiliar with.”
“No one works for you in the country, congresswoman,” the young conservative continued.
“No citizen, no voter, none of us work for you. You are no one’s boss. Okay?”
“Instead of getting mad at people for trashing your bad ideas, here’s an idea: come up with better ones.”
“God bless you congresswoman, have a great day,” he said, concluding the video.
