Let me say before I begin….it is amazing how many GOPers are jumping on the Obamacare bandwagon….when just short of a decade ago it was socialism at its worse. This illustrates just how cowardly the elected representatives truly are…….
That brings me to the batch of freshman representatives and how they are an illustration of the representation we truly deserve…..not the old fart cowards that have ruled the Congress for over 50 years.
For instance…AOC…..this woman shows the balls that the men in Congress cannot muster……she is an excellent rep of her district…….
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has taken Washington, D.C by storm.
She successfully ran an insurgent, grass-roots Congressional campaign. She is exceptionally bright. She is incredibly media savvy. She is hugely charismatic, because she is telegenic and photogenic, but also because she consistently seems to be a sincere, authentic, and truly nice and caring human being. In an age of bullshit, she is “real.” And she has the courage of her convictions.
She has thus quickly been embraced by the left, reviled by the right, and treated with enormous skepticism by the center.
AOC is no moderate. She candidly denounces injustice. She celebrates activists who confront fellow members of Congress (like Ana Maria Archila, who confronted Senator Jeff Flake during the Kavanaugh hearings) and even visits protestors conducting a sit-in at the office of her party’s legislative leader, Nancy Pelosi. And she advances bold new visionary policy ideas, like the Green New Deal, which she not only helped to catapult to political center stage, but managed to get senior Democratic leaders, such as Massachusetts Senator Ed Markey, to co-sponsor.
