Does she still strike you as a mere freshman lawmaker. THINK AGAIN.

A comprehensive anti-poverty bill proposed by New York Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez would authorize new protections for tenants, children, immigrants, and other categories of Americans who are increasingly vulnerable to the high costs of inequality. This legislation—really a suite of bills—would expand federal benefits to undocumented immigrants and people with past criminal convictions, introduce a workspace score for certifying federal contractors, and add nuance to federal poverty guidelines.

With her new legislative package, Ocasio-Cortez aims to elevate poverty as an agenda item for liberals, the way she has moved the needle on the issues of healthcare and climate change by promoting Medicare for All and the Green New Deal. Her bill, ”A Just Society,” would position anti-poverty policy as an agenda item for the new left, and possibly another litmus test, too.

One of the features of AOC’s package is a tenant-rights bill that, by itself, would represent a significant expansion of federal housing policy. The “Place to Prosper Act” would impose new disclosure requirements on corporate landlords, for example, and prohibit discrimination against tenants based on source of income (including housing vouchers). It would introduce a national right to counsel for renters facing eviction (much like the law passed by New York in 2107) and a corresponding fund to give them access to legal services.

Among the proposed new protections is a national cap on annual rent increases, maybe the most explosive suggestion across all six bills. By establishing a national rent control doctrine, Ocasio-Cortez is putting down a federal marker in a national conversation about the affordable housing crisis.

The bill also targets landlords who own multiple properties, which would punish institutional owners of apartment buildings—the corporate landlords who often serve as boogeymen in debates over rents. Institutional owners represent just 17 percent of the multifamily housing market, according to CBRE, a commercial real-estate firm. Private entities of all sizes make up the larger share (68 percent), but the vast majority of them are smaller or mid-size owners. A law such as AOC’s proposal could drive owners across the spectrum to break up in order to operate more like unregulated mom-and-pop landlords.

Trump's tribalism will be replaced by 'good for the people' populism advanced by AOC.

It's the NEW New Deal.  

 

It will benefit you, so try not to fight against your own best interests. I know cons have been led to believe that you will be wealthy one day. Let me save you some suspense: YOU WON'T.

That a line of bullsh*t. Hold on to your middle class status or it will be taken from you, just like they have taken your common sense.

The meme about amending the Constitution to prevent FDR from being re-elected is more proof of AOC's ignorance.

 

FDR was dead before the 22nd Amendment was even proposed.

 

Loon.

...THINK AGAIN....

 

"If we were willing to give away $3 billion for this deal, we could invest those $3 billion in our district ourselves, if we wanted to," said Ocasio-Cortez, defending her anti-Amazon position. "We could hire out more teachers. We can fix our subways. We can put a lot of people to work for that money, if we wanted to."

Well, you ignorant loon....in spite of ÿour very ignorant assertion that: "FDR was dead before the 22nd Amendment was even proposed",

there was a campaign, launched and led by Republicans, to limit the Presidency to only two terms, that began in 1940 after President Roosevelt got elected to a third term, and intensified in 1944 when he was elected to a fourth term. It was a campaign issue in that election. His repeated reelections were definitely the catalyst for this Republican led campaign that eventually resulted in the passage of the 22nd Amendment in 1947. 

 

This article explains it very well for all of you historically ignorant rightwingnuts.

Did Congress Pass the 22nd Amendment in Order to ‘Make Sure FDR Did Not Get Re-Elected’?

Critics seized upon remarks made by Democrat U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez during an appearance on MSNBC in March 2019.

Right-wing wing nut? Boy do you have the wrong guy. LOL.

 

I'm a rock-solid life-long liberal Democrat.

 

The 22nd Amendement was passed in 1951. Proposed in 1947. FDR was already dead.

 

AOC is a dumb cluck. She and the Justice Democrats are subversive 5th Columnists who seek to damage our party.

The Republican led political campaign to institute a two term limit on Presidents started as far back as 1940, numbnuts. And it was very much centered on trying to keep the very popular President Rosevelt from achieving another term as President. 

 

AOC's comment may have been so loosely phrased that it was subject to misinterpretation, but it was essentially correct. You are the "ignorant loon" on this matter, Bill. And it is obvious that you failed to read the excellent Snopes article on the subject. Another rightwingnut trait....ignoring the evidence that might disturb your opinions.

Well, that is your opinion.....but it is a very stupid one, I'm afraid. And again, sounds very rightwing and conservative. 

 

AOC is actually far more intelligent than you are, as she has demonstrated many times. She and the other Social Justice Democratic Congress-persons who support the Green New Deal are the future of both the Party and America.

LOL. I don't. I talk like a liberal Democrat in the tradition of anti-fascist/anti-socialists like FDR and JFK.

 

You are trying to cover for a loon who doesn't know her history. Calls by Republicans for term limits isn't the same thing as passing the 22nd Amendment, which happened 6 years *after* FDR's death. 

 

To call her comments "loosely phrased" mocks the English language. Gimme a break, she was dead wrong.

 

She is a dope and NOT a liberal. The Justice Democrats are a nefarious dark money organization that does deliberate harm to our party.

 

I'm not about to be gaslighted by someone from the lunatic far-left.

 

We have a president to impeach and races to win. The so-called "Justice" Democrats are an impediment.

 

Bill
