Socialist congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez doesn’t appear to realize that the societal problems that concern her the most all exist primarily because of failed Democrat policies.
She demonstrated as much Saturday when she took to Twitter to complain about people who believe her policy prescriptions make her a dangerous left-wing radical.
“Somewhere along the line, people in positions of influence decided that Flint water, Bronx air, or poor schools WEREN’T acceptable for their children, but could be accepted for someone else’s,” she wrote. “And I will never think that is a reasonable compromise to make. So #CallMeRadical.”

And I will never think that is a reasonable compromise to make.

She attached a rant in which she expounded further about the dirty air in the Bronx and the dirty water in Flint, Michigan, that children in these respective communities must contend with.
“Kids in the Bronx didn’t choose asthma from the dirty air. Children in Flint didn’t choose neurological disorders from the leader in their water,” she wrote.
While wanting kids to breath clean air and drink clean water is perfectly sensible, Ocasio-Cortez’s socialist policy prescriptions for these travesties are not. Nor is really any Democrat solution to these dilemmas sensible. Why? Because Democrat solutions created these problems.
This was a point that many Twitter users made sure to highlight to the congresswoman-elect.
Which political party was in power in each of the above cited examples? And having answered that question, why should we lend credence to any other member of said party, especially when that person identifies as a socialist? Answer: We should not.

Those “people in positions of influence” are called DEMOCRATS! Remember that! Are you taking notes?

Democrats decided it. Flint was corrupt and broke, the governor stepped in the right the corruption and that is when the water was diverted from 150 miles to a local river. https://t.co/SDRpwQ6zH5

Those are one party Democratic strongholds. Perhaps they should vote Republican. As you imply, can hardly be worse than what Democrats have done to them.

Given all of this, why are you a Democrat? After all, the place you mention & the problems you rightly decry have been overseen & run by Democrats, exclusively, for decades.

Democrats have been in charge of each of those places for decades. Tell me how electing more Democrats is going to fix it.

In Michigan, it was Democrat leaders whom some believe caused and exacerbated the water crisis. It’s likewise NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio who’s exacerbating the air problem in the city’s boroughs.
Earlier this year the Democrat mayor announced that he intends to close Rikers Island and replace it with smaller jails in Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and the Bronx. According to the New York Post, these jails are expected to “create gridlock, parking problems and air pollution.”
The boroughs are reportedly also now suffering from a dirty water problem too.
“In the past eight months, former NYCHA chairwoman Shola Olatoye resigned in disgrace, and the city Department of Health admitted that since 2012, at least 820 children living in public housing tested with lead levels above 5 micrograms per deciliter, which the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention essentially classifies as lead poisoning,” the Post reported in July.
In response de Blasio peddled excuses. Ocasio-Cortez is also known for her excuses.
It’s long been argued that decades of failed leadership by Democrat legislators has ruined what were some of America’s top cities, including Detroit. Once the fifth-largest city in America, the “Motor City” peaked in population in 1950, when 1.85 million residents called Detroit home.
That number has been in a free-fall ever since. By 2010 its population had plummeted 25 percent from 2000, to 713,777 residents, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. And it just so happens that the last time Democrat boasted a Democrat mayor was in 1962. Coincidence or conspiracy?
According to social media users, it’s a conspiracy, per se — one by Democrats to transform America into a “utopia” using policies that not only never work, but that always leave devastation in their wake.
Republican’s policies lead 2 economic & social justice 4 all, as prosperity provides 4 this. Democrats r 4 socialism which is a system that fails in logic & 4 which we have had many prototypes tested over & over & they all failed. It leads 2 mass sadness & loss of hope 4 the ppl

The problem is the “children “ are effected by the policies of the Democrat party, in other words people like you!

Here I fixed it for you:
Somewhere along the line democrats who run these places decided that it was better to keep these cities on the DNC’s plantation with crappy policies.
You will make these compromises to keep yourself in power

It’s called DEMOCRATS. Those are the ones who have been running these cities and yet you or any of your cohorts refuse to accept responsibility for failed policies and corruption

All of these problems are the results of Democratic Policies, Mayor Nagin refused to issue an order to the people even after the feds informed him this storm would be devastating.
Democrats destroy everything they touch
