All about Alexandria OcasioCortez

 

 

 

"The superstar New York Democrat and progressive standard-bearer cited four 'musts' for the Biden playbook: federal treatment of Puerto Rico, immigration, health care and climate change."

 

 

If Biden doesn't get with the program, he could lose the Millennial and progressive vote.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Wednesday called for Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, to shift leftward on four key policy issues in order earn the trust of his party's progressive wing.

"There are very real, tangible areas where Democrats even fell short perhaps during the Obama administration that I think I would like for us to have a plan to improve," the New York Democrat told POLITICO Playbook in a virtual interview — citing federal treatment of Puerto Rico, immigration, health care and climate change.

On the subject of Biden's health care proposals, Ocasio-Cortez said his support for lowering Medicare's eligibility age to 60 is not "going to be enough for us," adding that the party is "going to have to pursue a much more ambitious health care policy."

Ocasio-Cortez also elaborated on Biden's stance toward climate change, characterizing his preferred methods for combating the threat from rising global temperatures as inadequate.

"I don't think that the vice president has a climate change policy that is sufficient right now," she said, "and I'd like to see us really work on that."

The remarks from the freshman lawmaker, while largely critical of Biden's platform, seemed ultimately aimed at bridging intra-party divides through securing certain ideological concessions from the former vice president. Biden, who is viewed skeptically by some liberal Democrats, has taken significant steps to consolidate broad party support in recent days, rolling out successive endorsements from former Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, President Barack Obama and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren.

But Ocasio-Cortez has yet to formally throw her support behind Biden, and tensions between the two politicians — one the face of the party's more moderate establishment, the other a superstar of its progressive grassroots — intensified earlier this week.

In an interview with The New York Times published Monday, Ocasio-Cortez said she had not been contacted by the Biden campaign and predicted unification among the party's various factions would not come easily.

But Wednesday, the congresswoman revealed her staff was now "having conversations with Biden's team" in an effort "to figure out what some of these policy conversations will [be] looking like" as the White House race moves forward.

"You know, I would love to see him clarify and deepen his policy stances on certain issues. But aside from that, you know, I think it's incredibly important that we support the Democratic nominee in November," Ocasio-Cortez said, stopping short of explicitly endorsing Biden's candidacy.

It sucks to be him. He should probably just blow his own head off right now. LOL

Did he pat her on the head and compliment her on being one of the "good" mexicans yet? She's clean, and articulate - a dream, really. And possessing a vagina, she meets his declared standard in  VP.

She needs to think a little more about wall street and a little less about main street - right, bill?

 

Don't worry - Biden's got ya covered. :)

I don't think she has near the influence she thinks she has. I think she means well, but she hasn't taken the time to actually learn how to turn her ideas into action. It takes more than just giving speeches. She must forge alliances with her colleagues to push an agenda. It's going take more than the squad to get anything done. She might be there one day, she's not there yet.

I predicted a while ago that there would be a major third party that emerges from the liberal/progressive rift in the Democratic party. These might be the seeds of it.

Not this time. Trump barely won the first time around and his base has shrunk since then. His base might be loud but they are fewer in numbers. I predict Democrats come out in droves just like they did in the mid terms. The blue wave is only getting stronger.

Wait, what? Trump's base shrunk? I disagree. 

 

Democrats are split 2/3s to 1/3d moderate liberal to progressive. How do you convince progressives to ONCE AGAIN abandon their principles and settle for the establishment corporate warhawk?

Your Blue Wave is actually the driving force for forcing blue collar jobs back overseas.  Especially when it's the blue collar guys that are keeping this country running.

We can agree to disagree. We'll have to wait until November to see how it plays out.

You saw how it played out in the mid terms.

Midterms are ALWAYS a different ballgame. A good indicator, sure, but rarely predictive, especially when you're dealing with such a unique and enigmatic figure like Donald Trump. 

I've gotten the impression that the Republican base is engaged, excited, and downright energetic, and the Democratic base is split almost down the middle.

Not only is the Democrat party fractured, but the moderate independents are NOT going to vote for Biden. He's toast with all but the traditional estab Dems. 

 

If the economy gets halfway back to pre-corona levels, Trump >400 EC votes.

Not at all. HRC is a great liberal Democrat. It is a damned shame she's not leading the country instead of the moron.

 

She's one on the most competent people on the planet, while Trump is an incompetent jackass.

No holds barred chat

  • Hey kfools.. does this help? 


  • By Vegas

    Liberals are going to hell.


  • grgle



  • Where’s at @slideman?


  • Hola


  • I know this one, this new chat thing. I've seen it called the "shoutbox" among other things in my past. Very hard to hide from the chat box. The question is asked, there's no time to go search what other folks think, this is real time. Only seconds should be between chat box replies. This one is made for me. In the chat box one has to be quick on their feet with stuff at the ready. This chat box is the worst nightmare of anyone trying to deal with ol' teach. 


  • By pmurT

    hey @teacher that sounds like too much work for me LOL I need that useless thing called *time* in order to authenticate facts and truths which get posted by deceitful Dems


  • What does the red number refer to? currently, on my screen it says 2

     


  • Where does it say 2?


  • So. In the chat....if you tag a member the text afterwards should be a private message. 


  • How do? I'm teacher. If I'm online and the powers that be can figure out how to make it immediately apparent to me that whatever I've said here has been replied to I'm gonna show up right quick and kick some teeth in. It's the chat box, all this is new and scary. I know this gig. This starts now. 



  • Hey kfools, did you lose your securtiy cert? On my browser it is saying your site is not secure?


  • Mine too. I'm looking into it.


  • Mine too. 


  • I thought it was my location.. 


  • Just gave to renew the security cert. No big deal I'll do it tonight


  • OK thanks

     



  • Happy Anniversary, America... on your Civil Union.


  • All lives matter.


  • Double post deleted.


  • By teacher

    Scroll the other way for a while and you'll see me saying that these days the chat box ain't gonna work as one has to be quick on one's feet. The question is posed, there ain't no stinkin time for ya'll to refer to your betters for the answer, ya'll don't understand these things, this political debate, ya'll don't have the answer at hand, ya'll haven't thought this through, ya'll ain't ready for the next question I'll ask,  ya'll can't handle the pace that a bloke such as I can bring it in the chat box, ya'll can't handle this format.

     

    This one is made for me. 


  • By teacher

    Being offended does not make one correct. 


  • By teacher

    Some few days before the next election Mr. Fools is gonna pin my horse thread. it's gonna be horrible, I shall endevour every day to bring some some fresh. 

     

    I still own this cat box.


  • By teacher

    "I'm coming to you for ask a quick favor."


  • By teacher

    "Anyone that places a color in front of their name is racist." That one is not mine, got it from another member. 


  • Where’s all the hot bitches? 


  • By teacher

    Kidding me?
