Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made a stunning admission this week and sided with Republicans on a critical issue.
Over the weekend, Ocasio-Cortez took to Twitter to voice her support for over-the-counter access to birth control.
Ironically enough, Republicans have been making this argument for quite awhile. The Democrats and Planned Parenthood are the ones who oppose doing this.
“Psst! 🗣 Birth control should be over-the-counter, pass it on,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote.

Current law in the U.S. requires the Food and Drug Administration to regulate access to birth control pills, meaning women must get a prescription from a physician to access hormonal contraceptive pills.
But more importantly, it’s certainly amazing to see that Ocasio-Cortez, whether she realized it or not, actually agreed with Republicans over her own party on the issue.
