The New York Post has more to say about AOC's stunt in Congress:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made a student loan payment on Tuesday — and also revealed how much she still owes — while attending a congressional hearing on college debt.

“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,” said the New York lawmaker. “I just made a payment that took me down to $19,000 so I feel really accomplished right now.”

Ocasio-Cortez, a Boston University graduate, was attending a House Financial Services Committee hearing on the estimated $1.5 trillion in student debt in the country. Consumer advocates, experts and public figures testified on different ways to bring the number down.

USA Today also stated:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez used her bank account to make a point during a House Financial Services Committee hearing on student debt. 

Ocasio-Cortez opened her remarks by telling the witnesses and audience that she had made a student loan payment while attending the hearing. 

"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. "I just made a payment that took me down to $19,000 so I feel really accomplished right now."

She called for action on the nation's student debt. 

“I’m hearing people on this committee say it’s not our job," Ocasio-Cortez said, referring to congressional Republicans' testimony during the hearing. "This is our job.”
