The reason you don't hear more Democrats talk about their root ideals is $$$ caching-caching! But she didn't take money from big pharma, big oil etc like the majority of members criss-crossing the aisles. More new congressmen also took only small donations or non lobbyist groups as well.
Fools gold. All glitter, no real value.

The reason you don't hear Democrats talk about their root ideals is that they have none. Liberalism is all about emotion.

Cortez's statement that she took no corporate money is not correct. Her largest contributors were Columbia University, CCNY, and Apple. I would be surprised if any big pharma or big oil money was offered. A small time outlier in a heavily Democratic district with a long time incumbent would not have attracted much attention. Worthy of note, she took no big D money either.

We just spent 8 years with a Democratic President and suffered through the slowest recovery since the great Depression. It was only after a Republican won the election that the economy began to pick up, and it began the day after his election due to optimism in the markets.

If I want crappy healthcare, I will go somewhere else in the world to get it. I want the best healthcare possible when I need it which means that I will have to pay for it. Unlike Progressives wet dreams, nothing is free.

Medical innovation doesn't just happen, it is bought and paid for by the healthcare dollars we spend. Life saving drugs are brought to market to make a profit for the company producing them, but also to help to fund the next drug that may cure cancer, or diabetes. For every drug that is successfully brought to market at the cost of Billions of dollars, there are many that never see a dime. How long do you expect that a company can support such a system if it were not making a profit? And who do you expect to pay for that innovation?

I will gladly pay for the treatments that I receive if they are available. But the Progressive solution to these costs are not to relieve the providers of healthcare of some of the roadblocks that may be in the way to reduce costs, but to pile on and add even more obstacles in their path. And when that doesn't stifle innovation, they bring in the efficiency of Government (for those that understand sarcasm) to finish them off.

If you want to complain about the cost of healthcare in America as compared to other countries, I suggest that you address it with other countries as price controls in those countries force higher prices here.
