The Antics of Democratic Superstar Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
« on: January 13, 2019, 04:51:26 PM »

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the new poster child of the Democratic Party Progressive front.

This is our new best hope of our country abandoning the concepts of freedom, independence, and capitalism to replace them with socialism and big government.

I thought I'd start a page to document this tremendous opportunity to transform our country into the utopia that we all know it could and should be.

This week her own Party passed her over for very important committees - in which she no doubt would make the rest of them look like the capitalist dogs they are.

WASHINGTON — Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez didn’t get a seat on the powerful tax writing committee where she sought to push her progressive agenda of Medicare for All, free college tuition and a green new deal.

Instead, the open downstate New York slot on the House Ways and Means Committee went to a moderate Democrat, Long Island Rep. Tom Suozzi, a former CPA, attorney and county executive.

Suozzi will assume the committee seat of Rep. Joe Crowley, the Queens Democrat Ocasio-Cortez defeated last year in a stunning upset.

Ocasio-Cortez sought a spot on the committee—which is usually off limits to freshman reps – with the backing of progressive groups that pushed for a slate of fresh-faced candidates to earn posh assignments.

So they put on someone with experience and qualifications - over an idealist with a vision of fundamental hope and change? 

Baffling.  Just baffling.

She's the gift that Republicans have been waiting for ... 

I like her opposition of ICE - after she voted for them  :)
