GailL1:  Well, that would be one way to fulfill her stance of giving every person a job, that wants one.  How else could it be done without force applied to either the worker or the employer.

 

 

I think the key phrase there is "giving every person a job, that wants one".

What are her policies that are truly "socialist", instead of it just being a new favorite buzzword on the right to try to smear Democrats? You can call anything socialist, but that doesn't mean it really is.

Well your thoughts stem right from the far right world of one person rule like Dictator Trump. Everyone wants a job and most have one even though sadly some would destroy the supporters of the job they perform. She is from a Dist. that fits who she is. She beat a long time Congressman who forgot the people in his Dist. He did not even show up for one of their debates. At one time the Congressman did mirror the people in the Dist., but the Dist changed he did not. The people spoke and a new person has arrived. All that is arriving from the far right enablers are 3 year old kids dragged into court and told to represent them self. At least this new candidate is not a Dictator maker like the far right enablers.

Are they going to change the name of the party to include the word “Socialist”?

 

According to Perez this is the future of the party.  I have to hand it to him, that’s a gutsy move right before an election.

 

I am beginning to understand the #Walkaway movement that is picking up steam everyday.  This new democrat party looks nothing like the party of just 15 years ago.

 

This will be a very interesting election in November 2018...

DNC CHAIR: SOCIALIST OCASIO-CORTEZ IS ‘FUTURE OF OUR PARTY’

235 Views
Message 36 of 36

 

Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez praised socialist congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as “the future” of the Democratic Party on Tuesday.

 

Liberal radio host Bill Press said during a Tuesday interview with Perez that Ocasio-Cortez was able to take out longtime congressman Joe Crowley in the New York primary. Ocasio-Cortez campaigned on abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement and guaranteeing health care and housing as basic human rights.

 
 

“What’s this tell you about where the Democratic Party is going today?” Press asked.

Perez glossed over Ocasio-Cortez’s socialist policies and instead focused on the fact that she is a woman, noting that his “daughters” were very excited about her victory.

“Well, my daughters — I have three kids, two of whom are daughters, one just graduated college, one is in college, and they were both texting me about their excitement over Alexandria because, you know, she really represents the future of our party,” Perez replied. “She ran a spirited campaign.”
