A Democratic Senator Speaks Out Against Trendy Socialist Ocasio-Cortez
In what is hopefully the start of a new trend, Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman came out against the popular Socialist Democrat Ocasio-Cortez. For those that have not heard of her is she is the Democrat who has won the primary for her district in New York. She is running on an Abolish-ICE, far left platform and is the last thing that any of us need. It is nice to see that at least one Democrat understands that.
Joe Lieberman did more than speak out against her, he also suggests that everyone should vote for the incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley as Ocasio-Cortez is too far left and will just add to the lack of bipartisanship in Congress. He said as much in an article in The Wall Street Journal.
“Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s surprise primary victory over Rep. Joe Crowley seems likely to hurt Congress, America, and the Democratic Party. It doesn’t have to.
Because the policies Ms. Ocasio-Cortez advocates are so far from the mainstream, her election in November would make it harder for Congress to stop fighting and start fixing problems. Thanks to a small percentage of primary votes, all of the people of New York’s 14th Congressional District stand to lose a very effective representative in Washington.”
Lieberman also believes that Cortez would hurt the Country with her Socialist views and could cost Americans their jobs.
“Ms. Ocasio-Cortez is a proud member of the Democratic Socialists of America, whose platform, like hers, is more Socialist than Democratic. Her dreams of new federal spending would bankrupt the country or require very large tax increases, including on the working class. Her approach foresees government ownership of many private companies, which would decimate the economy and put millions out of work.”
Hopefully, other Democrats jump on the bandwagon as she has been described as further left than Bernie Sanders. Some may say “good she will never get in being that far left,” but that’s what the incumbent, Rep. Joe Crowley, thought too before he lost to her in the primary.
