    credit to AOC, good job on this. this is something that deserves media attention, actually helping people.

    https://thehill.com/homenews/527932-...eo-game-battle

    Ocasio-Cortez raises $200K to fight food and housing insecurity during video game battle

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) raised nearly a quarter of a million dollars for low-wealth Americans as part of a fundraiser during which she played video games online.

    "We did it!" the lawmaker exclaimed in a tweet over the holiday weekend. "$200k raised in one livestream (on a whim!) for eviction defense, food pantries, and more. This is going to make such a difference for those who need it most right now."

    On Friday, Ocasio-Cortez teamed up with the head of Canada's New Democratic Party, Jagmeet Singh, to play the popular video game Among Us.


    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    a person is smart. people are dumb, panicky, dangerous animals.

    Yeah she actually cares about poor people unlike every politician you support and most establishment dems.

    Y'all mock her for her modest background but she understands how drastically different things are for people in their 20s and 30s now than they were for all the fossils in our government.

    No matter what we do, no matter how much we spend on programs, no matter how much $$$ we throw at poor people……there will always be poor people.

    By that same logic: no matter what we do, no matter how much we spend on personal hygiene, no matter how many showers we take....the human body will always get dirty.

    Stop wasting your time with taking showers.

    No.

    Encourage as many as possible to get ahead and be a little more self sufficient. Maybe have some of the younger ones change their ways just a tad.

    I mean, we could literally end homelessness without spending a fraction of what we spend on war (an astronomical amount compared to every other country) or hand out to people with unimaginable wealth every time a Republican becomes president.

    You guys gotta stop with the "how can we afford it" garbage. I don't even think it's possible you truly believe it.

    Perhaps it has more to do with something else. A disdain for poor Americans. Some patriots you are. Rather bomb every country and overthrow any leader we don't like than protect our own. Rather live in a country where a few men are worth more than entire countries than seeing that money actually trickle down. You might think I'm wrong, but your politics dont suggest so

    For what it's worth I mock her for her embarrassing ignorance when it comes to politics, and the economy.

    She's probably cares, but caring doesn't get **** done.

    And by "**** done" I mean policies.

    Lol. What do the politicians you support get done that actually helps anyone out. At least she's trying. And at least she's changing the discourse and radicalizing a lot of people. Maybe Chuck and Nancy need to die off before we have a progressive party but I can't think of a freshman congressman whose impact has been as significant as hers

    Keep pretending like she's just some dumb broad. It's definitely her...not you....

    Nancy has done a great job getting things pushed through the House... Which is her job.

    She's played a major role in...

    1. Preventing the Bush administration for privatizing part of Social Security.
    2. Passing ObamaCare
    3. Blocked efforts to start offshore drilling again.
    4. She's been a constant proponent of LBGT rights, since before AOC was born.
    5. She's pro Hong Kong, and met with pro-democracy leaders, while being a continued pain in Chinas *** her entire career. She tried to push Trump in holding his promise to label China a currency manipulator.

    6. She voted against the Iraq war.

    She's honestly done more than every "progressive" in the entire congress combined. And it's really frustrating hearing how much disrespect she gets form people who, quite frankly, don't have a clue about what they're talking about.

    I will say this. AOC has gotten better. And she seems like she's willing to put forth effort to continue getting better. But things have never gotten done in politics anywhere by "caring a lot". It's nice that she cares. It's nice that she's still connected to her roots in this country. But you have to be smart, and tactful.

    The fact that she admitted her faults in pushing the Green New Deal too early was good. She showed humbleness. I think it was a wake up call for her.

    I just wish liberals would stop acting like she's "so great". Jimmy Carter is a great guy who wanted to do amazing things, and is still more intelligent than 99% of the politicians out there. Doesn't make him a good president.
