It's all bluster - she's a big mouth as she hasn't been sworn in yet. The Dems will get her in line fast - they always do. Toe the line or they will undermine you and end your political career. Once this loser boards the gravy train she'll do anything to stay on.
“PAYGO isn’t only bad economics, as Rep. Ro Khanna (D-Calif.) explains; it’s also a dark political maneuver designed to hamstring progress on healthcare+other leg,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “We shouldn’t hinder ourselves from the start.”
Yeah. Heaven forbid we spend money we have instead of money we don't. That simply doesnt make sense! Let's spend it at then raise taxes when we realize theres no way to pay for it. Anything to push our agenda. Taxpayers are endless money trees anyway, right?
LOVE IT! Hope all the new whinny little millennial's create a shit storm for the Dem Party. You promised them free shit now they want you to make good on it, just pull the money from your ass. Hurry start with Cortez she needs her check, its all shes been talking about since her election.
This. I do not see her as a gift. This approach to politics, culture, economy is clearly supported by a critical mass of voters.
Those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it, and I may not know people who agree with her politics but I know an awful lot of people who couldn't even tell you what decade WW I happened. These people vote. They also want your shit.
I sincerely hope she starts a civil war within the democratic members of the house. My fantasy would be for pelosi to reprimand her publicly and then have occassional-cortex throw a temper tantrum on the floor of the house. And then have trump tweet about it.
Hmm....she may quickly turn into a hypocrite (can't say I am surprised). She sent out a tweet before the shutdown that said congressional salaries should be put on hold for the next shutdown. When asked if she is going to follow through on this now that there is a shutdown - she said she had to run. Heh.
She won't be around long enough to do much damage. The dems have already recognized that she could split the party into 2, useless factions that just fight with each other. The old guard is universally hated and the new kids are loud and ignorant. They're going to polarize enough of the base to cause big problems. Just give them enough rope and they'll take care of the problem themselves.
