In a 60 Minutes interview that touched on a number of subjects, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the youngest woman ever elected to Congress, said Democrats have 'compromised too much.'

ANDERSON COOPER: You're willing to compromise?

ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ: Yeah, absolutely. Absolutely. 

It's just about what we choose to compromise.

My personal opinion, and I know that my district and my community feels this way as well, is that we as a party have compromised too much, and we've lost too much of who we're supposed to be and who we are. And —

ANDERSON COOPER: The Democratic Party has lost too much —

ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ: I think so. I think — I think we've compromised things that we shouldn't have compromised, whether it's judgeships with Mitch McConnell, whether it's compromising on climate change. I think we've — there are some things that we've compromised a little bit too much on. But am I open to compromise on certain ways to get things done? Absolutely. Absolutely.
