I am so amazed by her, like every day. She is so damn intelligent!!! So damn passionate!! So damn fearless!! She has such a grasp of the problems that we are facing. She is able to put those problems in to simple concepts that everyone should be able to understand, assuming that they want to understand. Her background isn't public speaking, but you would never know it. She doesn't have a law degree like so many in Washington. Her degree isn't political science.

Also amazing to me is her restraint in not asking her opponents if they are fucking stupid. She came close to it with Sen. Lee of UT.

But then they do things like this to clear it right up.

If this guy can be Senator, you can do anything.


She has such confidence in her beliefs. No fear in taking on the DC machine. I said it here before, I truly hope that she is all that she appears to me to be.

She’s a millennial.

And I don’t say that to brag . Razz I say it because she’s a representation of millennial political beliefs. I think more like her will pop up.

AOC calls out audience member at MSNBC show.

Quote:
"Hey! Hey! Hey! That's unacceptable," Ocasio-Cortez said as she pointed her finger at the audience member. Then, looking back at Inglis, she added: "And that's the difference between me and Trump."


I have no idea how to do this like everyone else, so you're just going to have to scroll down until you find the one that says "Hey, that's unacceptable" and is 2:17 seconds long. Sorry.

Yeah yeah yeah. Here's a millennial-boomer business conversation.

boomer: Do you want iPhone scans of the documents and me to email you PDFs or would you like me to send you the hard copies?

millennial: That'll work.

Maybe the Green New Deal in storybook form will help Trump supporters understand it better.

Ocasio-Cortez actually said yes to their invite, and now they’re waffling.

Ted Cruz and Ocasio-Cortez are trying to fix Washington — together. (No, really)
https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/lets-make-a-deal-aoc-and-ted-cruz-yes-thats-right-teaming-up-to-fix-washington/2019/05/30/bb9dbbfa-832c-11e9-bce7-40b4105f7ca0_story.html?utm_term=.8e5591c272b4#click=https://t.co/cfacG2vmuW

Quote:
A peculiar thing happened when Congress left Washington this week: Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) found themselves aligned and eager to work together.


Quote:
Ocasio-Cortez tweeted an analysis from the watchdog group Public Citizen that found nearly 60 percent of former members from the last Congress who have taken jobs outside of politics are lobbying or influencing federal policy in some way, including Joseph Crowley, the high-ranking Democratic congressman she beat in the primary.

“I don’t think it should be legal at ALL to become a corporate lobbyist if you’ve served in Congress,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote.

Shortly thereafter, Cruz retweeted her and put in motion the most shocking political pairing in American history, or at least in recent memory.


Quote:
“Cruz and AOC willing to work together on revolving door abuses is quite a surprise, but it looks real,” he said. “They are talking about sponsoring legislation to impose a lifetime ban on members of Congress ever serving as paid lobbyists once they retire from public service. I don’t know how politically feasible this legislation would be, but it is a great starting point for some meaningful ethics reforms.”

Freshman Reps Introduce OTC Bill
https://www.refinery29.com/amp/en-us/2019/06/235328/alexandria-ocasio-cortez-ted-cruz-birth-control-bill

Quote:
The bill is very similar to one that Washington state's Sen. Murray introduced in 2015, Mairead Lynn, the senator's senior press secretary, told Refinery29. It would build on contraception coverage access in the Affordable Care Act (ACA) by ensuring that when the FDA approves birth control pills for OTC use, you wouldn't need a prescription or have to pay extra out-of-pocket fees.

“It is a brutal form of oppression to seize control of the one essential thing a person should command: their own body," Rep. Ocasio-Cortez said in a statement provided to Refinery29. "Women should have the right to own and control their own bodies. I am proud to support the #FreethePill legislation, which would make birth control over-the-counter,” she added, referring to the hashtag supporters of the bill are promoting.


Quote:
OTC birth control has an unexpected supporter. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who also recently responded to an AOC tweet about congressional ethics, has once again been lurking on the New York representative’s Twitter. Sen. Cruz seems to have an appetite for bipartisanship lately, which comes off as a little suspect considering that he is the Republican senator with the most partisan track record.

"I agree," Cruz tweeted in response to AOC's original post about OTC birth control. "Perhaps, in addition to the legislation we are already working on together to ban Members of Congress from becoming lobbyists, we can team up here as well. A simple, clean bill making birth control available over the counter. Interested?"
