For the past 100 years, the Democratic Party has been turning more and more to socialism.
That was apparent in the days of FDR, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama.
Today, some of the younger Democrats have stopped trying to hide their socialism, but bring it and its destructive agenda to the forefront of politics.
Led by the brash freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the group of socialist Democrats have actively pushed for their free Medicare for all and AOC’s Green New Deal.
However, enough older and more sensible Democrats (now that’s an oxymoron) are not falling for the socialist plans of AOC and her minions, dashing the plans of the young Dems, at least for now.
Washington Examiner – Socialist agenda stalls in the House – Ambitious proposals to end climate change and provide healthcare for everyone, seen as socialist by Republicans, have failed to win the support of even half of the House Democratic caucus, effectively dooming any chance of floor consideration.
Support appears to have plateaued for both the Green New Deal resolution as well as the Medicare for All national health insurance proposal.
The Green New Deal, introduced Feb. 7 by rising freshman star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., calls for a complete overhaul of the nation’s housing, transportation, businesses, and agriculture to end carbon emissions and to stave off climate change.
But of the 235 Democrats in the House, Ocasio-Cortez’s bill has the backing of just 90 of her colleagues, and picked up just one new co-sponsor since Feb. 25. That’s a little more than a third of the Democrats and far fewer than the 218 needed to pass it without any GOP support…
A number of polls have shown how today’s public education system has been successful in indoctrinating an entire generation.
That generation, known as millennials, are starting to vote and get involved in politics.
These two super-destructive socialist measures (healthcare and green energy) may have failed to gain the necessary support from House Democrats for now, but it seems that it’s only a matter of time before more young socialist Democrats will get elected, changing the status of the House.
Once that happens, America will be economically destroyed and politically changed, leaving our descendants to face a bleak and ugly life.
