    I like AOC for more than just that she's proof that BU grads are the best looking people around but she needs to focus a little more. PAYGO is a toothless rule and all about optics. Green New Deal is a much more important project so don't waste your political capital on small ball stuff.

    No. She's hit a sweet spot -- she's substance and fun. She doesn't have to change a thing. The future of the Democratic party is not Claire McCaskill's approval.

    AOC has already advanced more ideas of substance than the entire Republican party and half the Democratic Congressional caucus. She's going to be just fine and she's going to electrify the people under 30 who will change this country.

    While you were blathering about PAYGO, Speaker Pelosi and the senior members of Congress were rolling out the first piece of the real agenda.

    Of course, Itch has already called it DOA in the Senate. Good, he can own it then.

    Put all the legislation that the majority of the country agrees with out there, let Republicans and Orange Droolius obstruct, block, deflect, etc. Let good Dem candidates run on that in 2020. That's how you don't fark this up.

    YES! I'm always reading about how people on welfare are dining on filet mignon and lobster every night, and if you can't trust right wing news outlets who can you trust?

    Susan Collins got air time on Meet The Press this morning. I don't get it. And Lindsey Graham on Face the Nation. It appears we have the wrong people speaking to the nation on this issue.

    LG has not met a war he didn't like. Send him to the killing fields and ask him if he likes the stench.

    My Schoolhouse Rock is a bit rusty, is there a time limit on Bills approved from the House, or could a potential Dem controlled Senate in the 117th Congress take a look at two years of backlog from the house and go "Hey! These are great! *rubber stanp*"??

    Okay, my Schoolhouse Rock is a lot rusty. Just need the reminder.
