AOC slams Republicans, reveals how much she owes in student loans at hearing: 'This is our job'

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., slammed Republicans after she revealed she owes nearly $20,000 in student loans at a House Financial Services Committee hearing on college debt Tuesday, according to a report.

The committee was discussing how to bring down the estimated $1.5 trillion in student debt owed in the United States.

“I literally made a student loan payment while I was sitting here at this chair, and I looked at my balance, and it was $20,237.16,” she said.

Ocasio-Cortez is one of 70 members of Congress who are still paying off student debt for themselves or a dependent, the Post reported.

Last month, President Trump signed an executive order to cancel student loan debts for permanently disabled veterans.
