Skip to comments.‘Authority and power’: Ilhan Omar and AOC plan to make Progressive Caucus a ‘new kind of centrism’

Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York have promoted "Medicare for all," a federal $15 minimum wage, and social justice issues as cornerstones of a policy platform that helped elect both House Democrats in 2018.
We have the support of the majority of the public for the policies that we advocate for. And so we have to speak from a place of authority and power, Omar told BuzzFeed.
The Congressional Progressive Caucus co-chairwoman, Rep. Pramila Jayapal of Washington, who referred to Trump as a "combative racist" in 2019, said, "progressives are just the first to the best ideas."
Young Democrats, however, support the combative shift in tone and are eager to see more liberal policy ideas adopted by the Democratic Party.

Isn't Omar the one who married her brother? Cutting edge stuff right there.
Good luck tards.
Finally! The days of Democrats running as moderates or even conservatives are over. Glad to see them running as the leftist kooks they are.
And yet.....these geniuses havent figured out that what it costs to live in NYC or LA is not the same as the cost of living in Weaverville, NC. Federal minimum wage is stupid.
We have the support of the majority of the public for the policies that we advocate for. And so we have to speak from a place of authority and power,
You do NOT have the support of a majority.
Therefore, you have no power to be authoritarian.
A new kind that apparently doesn’t know the definition of the word “centrist”. Or “new” All been done before under different names.
AOC would really be a democrat donkey for president.
. We have the support of the majority of the public for the policies that we advocate for. And so we have to speak from a place of authority and power,
No, they dont, and no, you wont.
These bitches are crazy.
Well, she has the teeth for it.
Don’t forget Rashida Tlaib.
Authority and power
The Democrat Party platform, its credo, its raison d’etre.
Heh, Mao and Stalin would be Left of Center to these loons ... and not just the Justice Democrats.
Since when, exactly is SOCIALISM/COMMUNISM "centrist" ?
Ignorance is no bar to certitude in the progressive dreamworld.
