With the nonstop national media coverage of AOC, you’d be forgiven for forgetting she’ll actually be representing a geographically small congressional district starting January 2019 comprised mostly of Queens and the Bronx.
Already the congresswoman-elect is dominating headlines of centrist and conservative publications, building massive Left-wing support while Neolibs and TradCons alike chide her for being so bold.
In the age of Trump you’d think Democrats would be united in fighting back hard against Big Pharma, fossil fuels, the private insurance lobby, and Wall Street. Of course, these are Democrats we’re talking about, who just reversed a ban on fossil fuel donations. They love money as much as they love losing slam-dunk elections to reality TV clowns.
Ocasio-Cortez is also just in time to use her celebrity and political power to stand firm against the extremely controversial Amazon ‘deal’, wherein the richest man on earth’s slave-warehousing company will get paid $3 billion dollars in welfare to park a new headquarters just blocks from Alexandria’s 14th congressional district.
This is some ? legislation from @rontkim: ‘If we have $1.7b to give to Amazon, then that means we have $1.7b to forgive NY student loan debt.’ https://t.co/gPMmQ7QoZz
