The Democrats are Imploding, as Ocasio-Cortez Announces Plans to Defy Nancy Pelosi

By

Looks like Republicans and Conservatives won’t have to do much campaigning prior to the next election.

The Democrats seem determined to destroy themselves from within.

The new batch of Democratic representatives that gave the party control of the House hasn’t even yet been sworn in, and already it looks ready to implode.

That’s the consequence of playing the ultra-liberal card so hard during the last presidential election.

Most of the old guard Democrats don’t even believe in this stuff, but their antics on the public stage helped to get some actual radicals like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez elected to Congress.

And Ocasio-Cortez, for one, intends to shake things up, big time, to the detriment of her party’s future.

From The New York Post:

Ocasio-Cortez plans to vote against the Democrats’ rules package because it includes a “pay-go” provision that she says will hinder getting progressive legislation passed.

The rule would require that all new spending be paid for – either by increasing taxes or by budget cuts.

“PAYGO isn’t only bad economics, as Rep. Ro Khanna (D-Calif.) explains; it’s also a dark political maneuver designed to hamstring progress on healthcare+other leg,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “We shouldn’t hinder ourselves from the start.”
