Specifically, Cheney pointed to members of the incoming class of congressional Democrats who may implore likely House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., to take up such an agenda.
"We have a lot of Democrats now coming in who are socialists. I'm not exaggerating, they are socialists," Cheney said during a panel on Fox News Sunday. "And I think that it's very important that we actually do have very aggressive and clear policy debates. We've got to make sure that we understand the grave national security threat that's out there, as well as the threat that we're facing from the perspective of our debt.
"And the socialist set of agendas, set of issues, which I think leader Pelosi is probably going to be compelled to have to push forward, are ones that would be disastrous for the nation. So I think we've got to fight and fight hard on those issues."
Cheney will serve as the next chairwoman of the House Republican Conference, the No. 3 leadership position in the GOP minority set to be seated in Congress next year. It is the same position her father, former Vice President Dick Cheney, held in 1987 before he was promoted to minority whip a year and a half later.
Cheney, who was first elected to Congress in 2016, will help steer the Republican conference's communications and public relations strategy as its chairwoman in a political environment in which self-proclaimed democratic socialists Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., have elevated liberal priorities

One word answer to those idiots
And the carpetbagger promises to push good solid neocon values.
LOL! you don't need socialists to blow up the debt. Look what her daddy and Chimp Bush did with with Medicare Part D, the mega police state and Iraq.
The Bush League Republicans recognized that they needed fresh blood to make it look like they are on our side.
Cathy McMorris Rodgers stepped aside to make room for Liz Cheney.
They think we’re stupid.
Excellent. Go, Cheney, help president Trump MAGA!
A GOPeer from the most ‘rat Peoples’ Republic county in Wyo. is going to fight socialism?
Why didn’t she speak up when republicans had congress?
She’s more than all right. Waiting for that old Wy. Senator to retire. Should she remain a house leader or go to the upper chamber? At least there’s no McCain in her.
Liz is a tough bird....I’m very interested to see how she does. She is not one they want to tangle with.
Well..she’s there so I’m quite willing to see how she does. In the past she can be tough and if she’s tough about this I’ll be for her.
“In the past she can be tough”...
You mean linguistically or do you mean Liz Cheney has actually accomplished something conservative?
This is now....I choose not to base Liz’s performance on the past. She can be a pit bull and if she’s going up against the socialist agenda Pelosi intends to put out there then I’m all for her. It’s going to be interesting to see how she does.
Well that may be....but lets just see what she does. She’s nobodies puppet from what I’ve observed.
I don’t really care if or not she’s conservative.....if she fights the good fight I’ll be in her corner. Talk is cheap as we know but I’m willing to wait and see.
Shove that chimp talk right up your ass, or go back to DU.
Sometimes you just have to ignore the circular firing squad that erupts around here. Not real fast learners. Progressive pinkos stick together through it all but we cant seem to forgive anyone.
A perfect example is the Cruz threads.
Our POTUS can bury the hatchet but somehow his leadership and sacrifice isnt enough for the pure as the wind driven snow holier than thou types.
And we wonder why we so often snatch defeat from the jaws of victory...
Are you joking?
