We aren’t great at reaching rural voters to be fair. We are all setup for the big cities. But we have nothing to say for the countryside.It's sad to say, but conservatives in this state will not learn from Ted Cruz's/Texas GOP failures and AOC's help during the winter storm. They don't see it that way. Republicans have lied and scared them so much with "socialism" that they would freeze to death to own the libs.
I saw so many people defending Ted Cruz on social media, and demonizing AOC even as she was at the Houston Food Bank volunteering her time. They made comments that she was only doing it for political gain and a photo op. Like I said, they are so used to Republican leaders in this state doing NOTHING for them that someone actually helping and volunteering their time looks like a photo op for political gain. They would rather vote for Ted Cruz who does NOTHING as long as he is against "socialism" and allowing them to keep their guns.
I really don't know how these people will ever be convinced that the GOP doesn't care about them. They literally let all of us freeze for days and they blame AOC and the Green New Deal. It's a no win situation because these people have been lied to for so long and brainwashed for so long by right wing conspiracies. It's pretty much a lost cause at this point.
The progressive Democrat Ilhan Omar has called for the firing of the government official who effectively blocked the party’s plans to raise the minimum wage.
Democratic plans to include a gradual raise to $15 in Joe Biden’s $1.9tn coronavirus stimulus bill were effectively ended on Thursday when the Senate parliamentarian ruled it should not be part of the package.
The decision by Elizabeth MacDonough, who has held the non-partisan position since 2012, dashed hopes of including the raise in the bill – the first increase in over a decade.
And this is what is so important!AOC is wrong on this one.
Does anyone really think this would really be a debate,
...and not Greene doing this?
