Plain and simple.
Are these 4 women the new breath of Fresh Air for this new generation ?
Some one obviously opened the wrong CARE Package.
What is your opinion ? Inquiring minds would like to know.
Wouldn't the intelligent thing be to go to the websites? That is where actual policy can be found

They represent the voters who elected them. No worse than who Trump represents; corporate money, white nationalism and sexism.

As I've said before in a previous post, I'd estimate that the vast majority of these four women's support comes from the 18 - 35 year old age group. Out of that, I'd say more then half of them are women.

I'd also say that Black, Middle Eastern, and Hispanic women are the vast majority of that group of supporters.

Not that much of a surprise though. If they had a Japanese, Chinese, or Korean among that group of four, that ethnic group would be a big part of the overall group of supporters.

Looking at their resumes, I'd be much more impressed if they had some major career accomplishments in life before before congress. Like for example maybe 10 yrs as a engineer, doctor, top high school teacher, entrepreneur, home builder, etc... But unfortunately like many politicians (especially on the left), they did pretty much nothing before getting elected. AOC's only real job was a bartender, Omar did "community nutrition outreach", Tlaib never had a job before politics.

Now they have $175k gov't jobs as demagogues of the left, and if they don't get re-elected they will get book deals and become CNN hosts. So more liberal politicians that go into politics flat broke and come out rich.

I would just like someone who has shown they can succeed and be good at something difficult in the private sector, before becoming the great liberal minds that want to re-shape American economics and society.

They represent the enemies of the U.S. also called America.

Can you show me where they lied to the electorate like so many other politicians did to get elected?

How do you like that wall Mexico built?

A similar thing could be said about who a GOP member is supposed to be representing.

They're being pretty particular about who they are representing. First, they put everyone in boxes by race, gender and sexual orientation. If you pas on any of these criteria, you make it on to phase two, wherein they evaluate if you think the right way. If you pass both tests, they'll represent you!

ďIf youíre not prepared to come to that table and represent that voice, donít come, because we donít need any more brown faces that donít want to be a brown voice. We donít need black faces that donít want to be a black voice.Ē

ó Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.)
