ocasio-cortez kicks Dems while they're down

Michael Ahrens - August 7, 2018

Self-avowed socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is ridiculing two Senate Democrats – Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) – saying they performed badly in their Democratic primaries because they’re not “working-class champion[s].”

Refresher: Manchin’s primary challenger garnered a whopping 30% of the vote, despite him outspending her 19-to-1. And Menendez’s primary challenger, an “unknown candidate with virtually no money,” managed to win nearly 40% of the vote.

Watch Here

OCASIO-CORTEZ: “There are people that really want to feel like there’s an unapologetic working-class champion for them. If [Manchin’s opponent Paula Jean Swearengin] had $2 million – she got 30% of the vote on basically $79k – 30%?! That’s unheard of and she never held political office before. Or you look at on the other end, Bob Menendez in Florida. He had an opponent that like didn’t even run a campaign and she got like 40% of the vote or something like that.

HOST: New Jersey.

OCASIO-CORTEZ: Oh sorry, yeah. New Jersey, sorry.

 

She’s not doing any favors for Democrats on the issues either.

With the rise of socialist candidates like her, Democrats are being forced into a corner about how they’d pay for policies like single-payer. (There’s a reason Sen. Bernie Sanders’ office has refused to conduct a cost analysis.)

Just today, The Washington Post exposed Democrats’ bogus talking point – that single-payer would actually save the country trillions – as a lie.
