So the next time GOP screams “socialist,” know that’s their go-to attack for any common-sense, humane policy.______AOC
That "living wage" will be offset by the rise in prices of just about everything, so there goes that silly "common-sense, humane policy".

Indeed, look what happened in uber Progressive cities like Seattle when they passed a living wage law. Fewer jobs and workers requesting fewer hours so they don't lose their welfare benefits.

You are trying to apply logic to the musings of an illogical poster. I hate to say it, but you are wasting your time. The ability to apply logic and reason to counter her argument is like trying to herd cats. You are pissing into the wind, so to say.

Yep. That exchange reminds me of the cartoon in PLAYBOY a few years back, where a man is telling another man that "If we stop sending so much wheat to Russia, we can then lower the price of bread here, there will be more bread available here, and people will be able to buy more bread, and, and, well the economists say it's bad!"

Something along those lines of logic anyway.

Spending a few hours today doing calltime.

But instead of calling donors, I’m calling constituents to personally follow up on casework they’ve brought to our office, and give them progress updates myself.

Getting big money out of politics means your Reps can do more of this. __Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Spent a few hours in a publicity stunt pretending to be a member of Congress instead of a media personality. Instead of getting her constituent services office open so there would be full time help available to help the people who elected her, she presents for the camera and virtue signals for the adoring media.

Socialist Girl makin' some waves.

So be a partisan sheep and vote straight party line or we'll put ya on a list.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez threatened disloyal Dems with primary ‘list.’ Now she’s backtracking.

Tsk tsk.

Do as I say, not as I do.

Ocasio-Cortez leaves parade in 17 mpg minivan — blocks from the subway

Bringing up Trump in a thread 'bout Socialist Girl. The TDS is strong with you. You also lose the debate, which happens often because you don't know how to debate while staying on topic. Like Wally, distraction is a common tactic in your debating repertoire.
