That is an excellent opinion piece - here's to the moderates.

I think that you could cut back on emissions without all the government spend. They are just looking for an excuse to hand out money to their base. 

You could set regulatuons on car emissions, home insulation standards, mandate competing private high speed trains.  You could help people pay for it by lowering taxes.

Just like the new deal its just a way to grow government.

How the hell did Cortez even get a platform? It's a high inflation environment all-right. High inflation of quality...

Apparently she is also against Amazon coming to NY.
We will see if Amazon pulls out and chooses another city.
Economic security for those unwilling to work plus arguably the greatest company on the planet wants to come to her city and she doesn't want it.

You just have to love the hypocrisy of the far left - these people look like fools:

Will be interesting to see if the moderate Democrats can rein in these nutbags.

I love her newest claim that Hispanics aren't subject to immigration laws.

The amount of attention a freshman Rep gets when the POTUS says the same types of stuff is why we have both. She can't even bring a bill to the floor without Pelosi's approval. She is far from the only Rep to say something stupid. There are also numerous Congressmen, cabinet members, gov't officials, ect that have done something that others have been forced to resign for.

"North Korea, under the leadership of Kim Jong Un, will become a great Economic Powerhouse. He may surprise some but he won’t surprise me, because I have gotten to know him & fully understand how capable he is. North Korea will become a different kind of Rocket - an Economic one!"

As long as everyone blames the other side instead of finding compromise, we'll sink deeper and the perpetual pessimists will say "told you America is Rome". It's willfull failure.

Wow! What a poor way to legitimize a complete idiot which is AOC.

Trump makes extravagant comments at times but, I see it as trying to solve immediate problems: peace with North Korea, more economic growth for the U.S., following our laws, work for all, etc. Not so different that past Presidents really but, a higher sense of urgency.

Is this a bad thing if North Korea turns its economy around? What if Truman had said the same thing about Japan? He would have looked and been considered crazy but, would have been eventually correct.

While this girl is trying to drive down America via the known path of poverty and slavery.

I am sorry but, anyone who is unable to look at today's reality and to see how good things are and to conceptualize how bad things would be under her vision is either not capable of thinking, not knowing history or just having drank too much of the extreme left and media kool-aid.

The freshman congresswoman is a phoenom and represents the radical left with no apology. The stuff that comes out of her mouth is a "non-starter" and a waste of everyone's time. Plus it's dangerous that the ranks of young people swell behind her because of her appealing, but naive viewpoint.

These "simple" solutions that put millions of people out of work - but DON'T worry, because we will pay for those people anyway, by printing more money
are totally idiocy. Democrats need to shut this nonsense down if they want to be considered legitimate problem solvers.
