Thats just a corporate media talking point, though. They know a lot of people are looking back at the 1960s with fond memories, when labor unions were strong, GDP growth far, far higher than today and inequality the lowest in more than a century. So the billionaire class pretend they believe that "labor unions served a purpose" when the reality is that they despise strong worker leverage. The more leverage workers have, the less power the ruling class have.

So what's so great about a non-existent public safety net and people being forced to die because they cant afford the cancer bill? I dont get it. Just because we pay taxes to a universal public safety net doesnt mean it is "free this and free that". It simply means having a government that actually cares about more than the interests of the big money donors and Wall Street. Whats so bad about that?

You really are fixated on cancer. No one gets turned away under Obamacare.

How quick you forget..Obamacare got passed because people were going to die in the streets.
Obamacare saved them.

Libs: Do you think most Americans like AOC and Omar?
Why wouldn’t anyone like them? They seem like nice people who only want what is best for America.

So- honest question- do you think that AOC and Omar help or hurt the democrat cause and their election chances in 2020?
I think Trump helps the Democrats election chances more than Omar or AOC.

Keep up the good work Trump!

Well, if liberals don’t like the Squad women being the face of the democrat party, there’s always Rosie O’Donnell, Maxine Waters, the View Women, Stormy Daniels, Rachael Maddow, Cher, Christine Blasey Ford and so many other charming democrat women......

All of whom I prefer to Republican women, who, notably, remain hidden in the background.

In fact, who are these Republican women? Two serve in the Senate, and I believe only 18 serve in the House. Most Republican women in the media are religious kooks or bubble headed models posing as news anchors on Fox News.

They clap and pray every Sunday in church and remain oblivious to what is happening in the world, and heck, even what is happening in this country.

No, but I don’t think most people like Louie Gohmert or Peter King.

The only people that have to like Omar or AOC are their constituents. Period, end of story. If you don’t live in their district, you needn’t be whining about them.

Worry about your own lame ass congressman. And most of you are represented by straight up clowns.

I think that AOC and Omar have been treated really badly by Trump and his base, did you hear all of that racist squealing from his crowd? Trump needs to apologize to these women immediately, but he won’t because we all know what type of person he is.
