Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez reveals what kind of candidate she'd want to endorse in 2020.

And it sure seems like it isn't Joe Biden.

"A trade war with China won't solve our economic problems. Instead we need homegrown solutions: affordable health care, better schools, modernized infrastructure, higher minimum wages and a crackdown on corporate greed. In the process, we would also learn that we have far more to gain through cooperation with China rather than reckless and unfair provocation."

WOW!! This notion that young people don’t vote is not just insulting, it’s wrong. In fact, the 2018 midterm elections were the first in American history where youth voters out-voted older voters. And the results were HUGE. One of the many reasons why I support @berniesanders so much is because he is, far and away, the choice of young voters. He leads all candidates ages 18-35. And that crosses all races, gender, and more. And here’s what I believe - choosing a nominee that is not supported by young voters is a losing strategy.

Yes!

Every public school teacher in this country should be making a starting salary of at least $60,000.

The people of Denmark, SC have not had clean water in more than decade and have to travel 20 miles to collect clean drinking water. Our job is to never again allow a community to undergo this. We will do all we can to help communities like Denmark rebuild, and when we are in power we are going to get our priorities straight. In the richest country in the world, safe drinking water must be an essential right.

Joe Biden’s “Electability” Argument Is How Democrats Lose Elections

When Democrats play it safe and “fall in line,” the results are devastating—as Dukakis, Gore, and Kerry made plain. If Biden wins the nomination next year, it will be because Democrats went with their heads, not their bleeding hearts. But Hillary Clinton’s 2008 campaign is a cautionary tale.

The historic teacher strikes of the past few years have brought national attention to the fact that teachers are paid totally inadequate wages. We will significantly increase teacher pay by working with states to set a starting salary for teachers at no less than $60,000 tied to cost of living, years of service, and other qualifications; and allowing states to go beyond that floor based on geographic cost of living.

"But on Friday, something big changed. A top-tier presidential candidate listened to a public school teacher (like, actually someone who has spent years teaching children in an American public school classroom) and released a policy based on that teacher’s ideas."

That teacher was 2018 BNC Candidate for United States Senate in Maine, Zak Ringelstein.

"Zak Ringelstein is the first-ever millennial nominee for US Senate by the Democratic Party. A teacher by trade, Ringelstein taught for 5 years in both the United States and East Africa. Prior to his 2018 run for US Senate in Maine, Ringelstein was named to the Forbes 30 Under 30 list for founding and scaling an education company called UClass, then selling it to Renaissance Learning in 2015. Ringelstein has worked on education policy at the White House, given a TEDx Talk on the damaging effects of standardized testing, and is a political activist working to undo the effect that big money in politics has had on education, healthcare, climate change, college access, and income inequality."

#Bernie's plan calls for expanding and extending Social Security for the next 52 years by making sure that all income over $250,000 a year is subject to the Social Security payroll tax. https://berniesanders.com/issues/expand-social-security/

#Arkansas leads in Senior Poverty and with low wages, many working people simply cannot save for retirement. Any cuts to Social Security hurts Arkansans and our local economy.

"We've had generals who have told us that if you liked the war in Afghanistan, and you liked the war in Iraq, you're really going to love the war in Iran."

U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders can not see a scenario where sending 120,000 troops to the Middle East, as part of a plan to counter Iran, would be justified.

"It would lead to endless wars ... our kids and our grandchildren would never see a time when there would be peace."

Nearly 70% of Republican primary voters and 73% of Democratic primary voters support Rep. Ocasio-Cortez's and my proposal to cap consumer loan and credit card interest rates at 15%, according to a new poll. This is not a radical idea. We believe the government should stand with the American people, not with predatory lenders who keep Americans in a state of perpetual debt.
