Pelosi vs A Cortez

The verdict is in. The alleged battle for the soul of the Democratic Party that pits House Speaker Nancy Pelosi against freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a ratings winner.

And like lots of things that rate well, this feud is entertainment packaged up as an indication of the leftward drift of the party… when the reality is quite the opposite.
Pelosi’s comments make clear what Democrats have been saying since the 2016 primary results came in: The strength — and votes — of the Democratic Party aren’t coming from far-left progressives, but the center-left coalition that backed Hillary Clinton and won the party back control of the House in 2018.

One legislator, one vote: Nancy Pelosi, AOC and the woke Twitter myth

Interesting read. The author makes some valid points.

Yes, yes, we should stick to the lesser of the two evils the donor class allows us. Another corporatist Wall Street backed pimp please.

The onlyl wall street Pimp was Obama who feed the market by having the Federal Reserve pring 89 billion a month and throwing it at saving Goldman Saks, BOA, and other big Obama donors.

The rest of the advanced world shows us all otherwise via example, not sloganeering, and single payer is not govt controlled healthcare. Do you not understand this?
Yes. Single Payer means some PAY while ALL receive. Here is a better idea. Leave it alone. Just increase Medicaid to cover those who can't afford. Leave the rest of us ALONE.

Also saw this and got a kick out of it. The "newbies" in Congress calling Pelosi "salty."

Pelosi said "our bill" was the best Democrats could do. She criticized the four liberal freshman – whom Dowd referred to as "the Squad" – for being the only members of their party to vote against the original version of the legislation passed by the Democratic-led House, which included some protections for migrant children.

"All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world," Pelosi said, according to Dowd. "But they didn’t have any following. They’re four people and that’s how many votes they got."

Now Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) has tweeted she’s “sorry not sorry” that Pelosi is “salty” about “WHO is wielding the power to shift” public sentiment and impact the future of the Democratic Party.
