Ocasio-Cortez: Medicare-for-all not a dream

Los Angeles California. The rising political star is on her third trip away from New York in three weeks and is

She will be one of two DSA members, alongside Ocasio-Cortez, assuming the latter prevails in the fall.

Hoping to build on the momentum set in motion by the New Yorker's stunning defeat of Rep. Joe Crowley, insurgent candidates in Michigan, Missouri and Kansas notched their share of victories, but there were no major surprises -- almost all the expected winners won - or dents made in skepticism among party powerbrokers.

Ocasio-Cortez took advantage of some unique circumstances to beat Crowley, one of the top House Democrats.

Ocasio-Cortez was an organizer on Sen. She said he was trying to undermine her candidacy by mounting a third-party challenge, after he seemed to have graciously conceded the election by dedicating the Bruce Springsteen anthem, "Born to Run", to her at what was supposed to be his victory party.

For some liberal pundits, her victory signals the beginning of the end of all that is wrong with America.

Sanders is, in a word, "sputtering", as Politico reported.

There will be two all-female races in Washington state. Nonetheless, Colorado, given the state's past votes for Mrs. Clinton, is a notable departure from the "flyover" status.


Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez's trip, and the enthusiastic receptions they received both in Kansas City and earlier in Wichita, seemed created to show that the same policies that have won the hearts of voters in Vermont and upturned a political machine in the Bronx and Queens can win in the Heartland, despite skepticism from centrist Democrats and mockery from conservative Republicans who think Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez are leading the Democratic Party to disappointment in November by dragging its national profile too far to the left.

Thursday night, Ocasio-Cortez compared the offer to "catcalling" on Twitter. The question was the same, and her answer was just as rambling and incoherent as before. And what might this be?

Going into Tuesday, the media had made Ocasio-Cortez, a radical leftist who doesn't know much about economics or anything else, the new star of the party.

Colorado state law requires a balanced budget.

"People talk about the sticker shock of Medicare-for-all, but not of our existing system", Ocasio-Cortez said during an interview on CNN's "Cuomo Prime Time".

This can only be accomplished by significantly raising taxes or eliminating spending in other areas. "I am proud of our state. For me, I just look at things through a human rights lens".

Following a successful worldwide business career, John Riddell turned his attention to small-business/entrepreneurial pursuits that included corporate turnarounds, start-ups, teaching as an adjunct business school professor, authoring noted business and sports columns, and serving as vice president for the Chattanooga Chamber of Commerce directing its Center for Entrepreneurial Growth. Anything less is simply dishonest.
