I think AOC started out with good intentions and then got caught up in the political mayhem with Omar and her friends. AOC is not very smart, and it is now apparent that Omar has taken the podium & attention away from AOC. Omar is very smart and sneaky. Nancy Pelosi has lost control of these 4, and I'm sure she's up nights thinking of what to do with this mess. I think these 4 are hurting the Democratic party. They are spewing anti-American rhetoric by their socialist policies and promises that cannot be kept. In addition, the Democrats are not doing their job in Congress that they were elected to do. All they've done for the past 3 years (and still doing) is investigate Trump. They are looking and looking for something to impeach him when it's not there. Nancy knows this and that's why she doesn't want to impeach him. It won't happen. This whole business is a waste of taxpayer dollars and, now, they are voting for a raise for themselves! IMO the Democrats are finished as the party they used to be.

She is really green - has a lot of maturing to do before she's ready for any leadership positions. Going to take a lot longer than 2 years.

Idk how accurate that is. CNN, MSNBC, etc as well as many online media outlets like Vice and Buzzfeed started pushing them when they were on the campaign trail and pushed them front and center.

I don't think Trump's comments have made most Americans sympathetic to them; they are still widely disliked and dismissed by most people, even if they don't like Trump's comments.

Trump turns red when he hears the names, Ocasio-Cortez or Omar! He absolutely hates women in power that don’t agree with him!

So- honest question- do you think that AOC and Omar help or hurt the democrat cause and their election chances in 2020?
I'm super liberal (I support universal healthcare) and I think they are absolutely cancerous.

Honest Answer- they hurt the cause.

More honest answer- This is a far more complicated discussion than your question, because the truth is some people just dont like brown skin people and those chants really show it.

If it wasnt AOC, it would be Lucy McBath( who the Georgia Republican Party has tried to raise her profile since the election), if it wasnt Ayanna Pressley, it would be Laura Underwood. And that... is the bigger problem here.

Trump has successfully bound AOC & Co, to Pelosi and the mainline dems. Nice work...

How quick you forget..Obamacare got passed because people were going to die in the streets.
Obamacare saved them.
Baloney. Huge numbers of people still die because they cant afford treatment and the medicine they need to survive. If you cant afford the treatment, you dont get the treatment. Whats so great about that? Who are the major donors of the people you vote for?

The more leverage workers have, the less power the ruling class have.



How many sweat shops employing children and working 16 hour days do you see in non union states these days?
