AOC 2.0: Hardcore Socialist Set to Knock Off Moderate Democrat in Illinois Congressional Primary

The Squad is going to get a little bigger.

Published

Rep. Dan Lipinski (D-IL), a moderate Democrat incumbent in Illinois’ 3rd Congressional district, is set to be defeated by progressive challenger Marie Newman, a hardcore socialist in the same vein as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and the rest of the Congressional “Squad.”

Politico announced that Lipinski was in trouble earlier in the day, but it was still uncertain whether he would actually be defeated by a challenger from his hard Left.

“Lipinski is liberals’ highest-profile 2020 primary target. Lining up behind Newman are Sanders, New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the Justice Democrats,” Politico reported.

The article noted the strength of the progressive movement, which is quickly becoming a juggernaut in the age when a devout socialist like Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) can be a top-tier presidential candidate in the Democrat Party.

“Her campaign, she said, has knocked on more than 110,000 doors and made 90,000 phone calls. She had outraised Lipinski by more than $400,000 as of late February, and that contrast is shown particularly stark on television. Newman has spent about $900,000 on television advertising, while Lipinski has dropped less than $450,000,” Politico reported.

According to the most recent reporting, Newman is currently winning with 22,559 votes or 46.5 percent of the margin. Lipinski has 21,642 votes or 44.6 percent of the margin with 59 percent of the vote currently being tallied. It is looking like Newman will ultimately become the Democrat nominee and therefore the defacto Congressman with it being extremely unlikely for a Republican to win the district.

A candidate profile of Newman highlights how extremely far-left her policies truly are.

“The Affordable Care act has made life easier for people and has brought insurance to over 20,000 people in my district. I would support any legislation meant to strengthen the program, but ultimately I believe that Medicare for All will give hard working families in my district the most security and peace of mind moving forward,” Newman said in the profile.

“I fully support the DACA program and HR 6 the Dream and Promise Act which, if passed by the Senate, would create a pathway to citizenship for nearly 2.5 million DREAMERs and those protected under the Temporary Protected Status designation,” she said of her immigration policy in support of amnesty.

“We need universal background checks for all gun sales, to reinstate the assault weapons ban, to require gun safety training with any issuance of a license and to pass red flag laws to prevent purchases of firearms by those who would be a threat to themselves or others,” Newman said about her hatred of the 2nd Amendment.

” I firmly support the framework of the Green New Deal and building a plan to fulfill that framework as a means to modernize our economy, to create good paying union jobs and to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2030,” she said about her environmental extremism.

The “Squad” is about to get bolstered with the likely election of Newman, as the demographic shift ushers in a new era of socialism with the fruits of diversity and multiculturalism on full display.

Arizona’s McSally Introduces Resolution to End Senate Salaries Until Stimulus Passes

If the people won’t get paid, neither will their legislators.

Published

on

Arizona Senator Martha McSally has introduced a Senate resolution that would withhold pay from all U.S. Senators until the chamber passes the eagerly-awaited Coronavirus stimulus, termed as ‘TrumpBux’ by some for the one-time payments of $1,200 to almost all American adults.

McSally announced the resolution, titled the ‘No COVID-19 Relief, No Pay Act‘ on Tuesday.

Americans have been largely cut off from everyday economic life by the governmental response to an act of God. It’s all too obvious that federal compensation is required.

If Americans aren’t getting paid, then neither should the Senators failing to support the workers and families who need help making ends meet,” said the freshman Arizona Senator.

Today, I introduced legislation to have Senators’ pay withheld until relief is passed. It is despicable that millions of Americans are without a paycheck in this time of crisis, while the Senate wastes precious time playing political games. The Senate must pass this relief package now in order to get cash straight to the people.”

Fortunately for Senators that would prefer a path of continued political grandstanding, the planned stimulus may be sent to the President’s desk on Wednesday after negotiations between Chuck Schumer and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin.

The final estimate of the stimulus cost has been gauged at $2 trillion dollars, a sizable package that will be distributed in a combination of TrumpBux and loans to small and big businesses.

There are some similarities between the TrumpBux proposal and universal basic income. The former isn’t ‘universal-‘ individuals who reported more than $75,000 in income on their 2018 tax return will get less money and those who reported more than $100,000’ won’t get anything.

McSally’s proposal ultimately could prove to be the final metaphorical poker stick to the feet of obstructionist Democrats seeking to delay the stimulus package with feckless political gamesmanship.
