Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

In the news: A 28-year-old Democratic Socialist just ousted a powerful, 10-term congressman in New York

She was on Morning Joe today ...

I'm very happy to see such a liberal Democratic Socialist win a primary. This puts the lie to the idea that Democrats have to move to center/right in order to win votes. She is for housing as a human right, a ban on assault weapons, Medicare for all, the abolition of ICE, working to fix climate change, and many other good things. Here's what she has at her site on women's reproductive rights ...

Reproductive freedom is especially essential for all individuals of marginalized genders, including cisgender women and trans people. Alexandria does not accept any federal, state or local rollbacks, cuts or restrictions on the ability of individuals to access quality reproductive healthcare services, birth control, HIV/AIDS care and prevention, or medically accurate sexuality education. This means open access to safe, legal, affordable abortion, birth control, and family planning services, as well as access to adequate, affordable pre- and post-natal care, for all people, regardless of income, location or education.

She's alos a Catholic and has an article at America Magazine ... Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on her Catholic faith and the urgency of a criminal justice reform

Go Democrats :)
