AOC Ignores Dems, Shares Cash With Progressive Candidates

January 12, 2020   |   by James G. Dalton

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., has refused to donate any of her large fundraising haul to the Democratic House campaign group, instead choosing to help fund progressive primary challengers, Fox News reports.

“For me personally, I’m not paying D-trip dues,” Ocasio-Cortez told the network, referring to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, adding that she has a “myriad of reasons.”

“One, I don’t agree with the policy around blacklisting groups that help progressive candidates,” she said, referring to the DCCC’s tactic of trying to squeeze out vendors who support Democrat primary challengers. “I think we need to evolve as a party and make room for that.”

She added, “I want to help frontline members by putting that money straight into their pocket.”

“Sometimes the question comes: ‘Do you want to be in a majority or do you want to be in the minority?'” Rep. Gregory Meeks, D-N.Y., told Fox News after he was asked about the congresswoman’s position. “And do you want to be part of a team?”

DCCC chairwoman Cheri Bustos dismissed questions about Ocasio-Cortez’ stance, saying that the DCCC has raised record funds anyway.

“That’s always up to individual members so I guess I don’t think about it one way or another,” Bustos said. “We’re raising record amounts of money from our members.”

    She needs to be taken off the Democrat listing if she’s not playing as part of the TEAM of Democrats. She can’t pick and choose which candidates she “prefers” to selectively back unless her PAC backer is okaying how she spends those funds. That’s the job of the politician to play by the backer wishes.

    She is part of the subversive anti-American new left faction of the Democratic party and one of the internal enemies of our Republic !! Her political views and her ideology are are 180 degrees out from what we the people cherish about our country. She is a radical out to bankrupt our economy with her fantastic , unattainable social programs, debt forgiveness, free health care, free education, open borders, large government , etc. Power and total control are what “The Squad” is after. She wants to cram “The New Green Deal” down out throats with no viable means of paying for any of it except to tax the population into abject poverty. She will make America into a Venezuela, or a Cuba. Poor, controlled, chaotic , like any other failed socialistic or communistic country. They MUST be stopped !!!!
