Quotes from the news wire:
Hannity added. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has recently been clashing with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and has suggested that Nancy Pelosi has been singling out Nancy Pelosi and three fellow freshman congresswomen because of race. But the persistent singling out... It got to a point where it was just outright disrespectful. ... The explicit singling out of newly elected women of color.
It may be politically convenient, and it may make you look good in the short term for saying, Oh were not voting for pay increases, but we should be fighting for pay increases for every American worker, we should be fighting for a $ 15 minimum wage pegged to inflation so that everybody in the United States with a salary with a wage gets a cost of living increase.Members of Congress, retail workers, everybody should get cost of living increases to accommodate for the changes in our economy. And then when we dont do that, it only increases the pressure on members to exploit loopholes like insider-trading loopholes, to make it on the back end.
I think thats the direction that we absolutely need to go in, i think one of the things that were hearing right here in our, that were really discovering in our hearings is that we -- the real issue with our health care system is that were trying to have it both ways. Were trying to have half a free market system, half a more public system. And it is in the half-commitments that our systems are breaking down.
We had been building and building, knocking on doors and doing everything we could, but a lot of the rhetoric I was met with from day one was,' You know,( Jeff Klein) is so powerful, and you have an uphill battle and I don't know if I want to donate.

Words mean something, and the moment you have identified something as fascist, that with it carries a moral responsibility to abolish it, that's what I'm talking about when we say that norms have been eroded : that we literally have elected officials arguing to basically retain fascist agencies. And that's on the left.
We're having a grass roots, corporate-free political revolution in the United States, in 2018, it's not enough to just turn red districts blue. We need to turn blue districts bluer. If in a district that's 85% Democrat, if this seat hasn't been leading the charge on progressive issues, what's the point?
The only way that you beat a machine is with a movement and the only way that this movement can sustain is if we start in good faith on shared values of a New York citizen. I think that is where Cynthia and I come together, i very much value the work and the impact that she has already made, due to the fact that she can go on‘The View’andtalk about abolishing ICE. What we can do is tag-team this message so that every community can hear it that needs to hear it. And I think that that kind of solidarity across lines is very, very powerful.
