UnnamedIncoming Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., pledged to voters she would be a far-left outsider who would push her party toward adopting “democratic socialist” policies, including universal health care and free college tuition. So far, she has kept her promise.

Ocasio-Cortez has been calling for the creation of “Green New Deal” legislation, which would eliminate much of the United States’ fossil-fuel consumption. So far, Sens. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.,  and Cory Booker, D-N.J., and 40 House Democrats have said they support the proposal.

  1. Cortez is what you get when Democrat voters elect a candidate only by the title “Democrat,” without paying attention to that candidate’s personal and political history.
    This is the problem of “voting by heritage or by habit.”
    Just because Grandpa and Dad voted Democrat, back when the Party was rational and reasonable, doesn’t mean that political party is STILL like that.
    Cortez’s crackpot ideas are proof that it no longer is.
