Out of all "ists" lobbyists worry me the most, because its done behind the scenes. And both parties are up to their necks in it. I deride her but bravo for bringing that up, getting rid of lobbyists is definitely something public at large should be able to get behind


You mean like the 5-year ban on lobbying that is already in place, courtesy of orange man?

Interesting how when orange man does it nobody seems to get behind it. Instead, we're giving occasional cortex credit for coming up with this idea even though it's already happening.

Denial is more than a river in Egypt, clearly.

Cool Sentiment, you'll have to understand if I lack faith.

Under Obama my industry saw its largest growth in possibly the existence of the US. Under Trump, almost every economic move he's made has hurt my industry.

So yeah, I experienced the growth under Obama and it was great for me.

It's not a five year ban on lobbying. What that EO essentially says is that former government employees have a non-compete clause for five years. At least when it comes to lobbying firms.

And you people wonder why you're labeled as uninformed. You can't even get one of the few things your candidate did right correct.

Problem is her and her peeps are merely proposing a less circuitous route to the same burning wasteland.

There is nothing quite so devastating as spending most of your life hoping someday things will change and every single day is the same #ing thing.

Samantha Occasionally Sanchez? Who the hell is that? Don't know, don't care. Just another rotten politician.

Why not a permanent ban? was 5 years all they could get passed.

LOL not an AOC fan just pointing out it was good hear again and again.

Could she be the dems version of a 'swamp-drainer' ?


One aspect to draining the swamp would require less government, not more.

Think about this.

Marxist Barbie wants to expand the size and scope of a corrupt government.







No no no. She wants to expand the government, THEN weed out the corruption. See, she requires that corruption for her plans to work. Too bad the corruption would find new places to hide in this even larger government.

Husband saw the opposite. His company went from a policy of domestic expansion to one of foreign expansion. Now they're back to domestic expansion again.

I guess you worked for one of the Democrat's winner industries, and my husband works for one of the loser ones.

while some of her ideas may seem radical to some she is growing on me. Like it or not she has Moxy, energy, cojones, charisma. She intimidates republicans and the establishment and I love that


DRAIN THE SWAMP!

Nope....Just a swamp filler who wants the "corruption" to stay in her side... The left-wing extremist side... She probably has no beef with...dunno PP donating to her and other democrats, but she wants to end the NRA donating to Republicans and she calls it "corruption..."

Remember that this is the same...donkey who wants to abolish ICE...

Riiiiight...she is going to drain the swamp by implementing the most draconian, and backwards type of authoritarian rule?...

You know, many ignorant people felt like you and voted for Chavez. Chavez also implemented Climate Change policies in Venezuela which helped destroy the nation... Venezuela was the most rich nation in South America, but once "socialism of the 21st century" was embraced by "people like you" it became the worst cesspool in South America in which people are starving, and the government still is imprisoning, torturing and even killing people for protesting...

If nothing else, she could use those teeth for a Democratic version of a paper shredder.

Well aside from her declaring herself dictator that isn't going to happen here. We have a system of checks and balances that will keep her in check like it did for Obama and is doing for Trump. I have faith that one single president will not be able to implement such drastic radical change as to compare us to Venezuela.

Obama caused more people to be unemployed. The need for more people to find more jobs because he reduced "full-time to 30 hours a week." Obama caused the economy of the U.S. to go down...

Meanwhile the rest of the nation suffered under Obama you profited?...

That's what I'm thinking too.

Give her 15 years in office and she'll actually be an effective legislator.

She's a little too outspoken right now. If she toned it down by half she'd be ok.


She will not be re-elected, she will be aborted in the second trimester

If you have money to flush down the toilet, that would certainly help to support her. Actually this makes sense, because it is exactly what she would be doing with tax payer money. Imagine her looting of the treasury to flush it all down the toilet with all those future failed entitlement policies. Birds of a feather and all that.
