I am starting to wonder as these disagreements seem to be heating up, if this isnt a planned thing? AOC, Tlaib, Pressley and Omar were all surrogates for Bernie in 2016. They are also members of the DSA. I wonder if they plan on giving him a huge endorsement to derail Biden? I know the grumblings at the DSA is they want Bernie to run as an indie. It would be a pretty big deal if that happened and would give Pelosi and the establishment dems a heart attack. It seems this is getting nastier and nastier at a pretty critical time.
Well said and good eye. It would be conspiracy to commit to this notion, but it does add up and make sense.

I believe it is getting nasty because it isn't working.

Rep Cortez is a neophyte. She may want to get some more experience in the HoR before calling out the Speaker. In addition, it would behoove her to get some legislative accomplishments under her belt. Firing off bombastic tweets comes across as self serving.
Like Trump. The irony

Socialism is not communism.
Yes, like khaki isn't beige.
It is too our money.
Your money is what you've earned. You neighbor's money is not yours to spend on personal ideas of societal utopia.
How lovely for me that you have staked out virtually a mirror image of my political POV. Seriously. I find our debates invigorating.
I believe individual rights trump collective wants. That's our only real difference. Convince enough individuals and you get your agenda rolling. Force them and prepare for a revolt.
And eventually, I will change your mind. Gives me a goal to work towards.
I welcome your attempt. It's like I say regarding government healthcare: make a program so awesome that I'll join voluntarily and you've won the battle.
Such fun!
Agreed. You and I are what political adversaries should behave like in this country. I respect your right to have opposing views and will work to fix them with logic, facts, history, and humor. At the end of the day, we're both just people doing our time on this rock.

Well, firstly. Better to buddy up with hipsters than racists.
If it eventually splinters your party and costs you elections, it makes no difference.
And secondly, the tent belongs to the 99%. Not to the billionaires.
That's what the billionairs want you to think. The truth is, money always runs things. The more you accumulate, the more obvious it becomes.
That's what they have the GOP for
The GOP is just the lesser of two evils. The shinier side of the coin.
