He can stay, he can go. He can be impeached, or voted out in 2020.

But removing Trump will not remove the infrastructure of an entire party that embraced him; the dark money that funded him; the online radicalization that drummed his army; nor the racism he amplified+reanimated.
In order for us to heal as a nation, we ALL must pursue the hard work of addressing these root causes.

It鈥檚 not as easy as voting. It means having uncomfortable moments convos w/ loved ones, w/ media, w/ those we disagree, and yes - within our own party, too.

It鈥檚 on all of us.
 
This is the REAL conversation we need to have as a country.

As horrific as this president is, he is a symptom of much deeper problems.

Even foreign influence plays on nat鈥檒 wounds that we refuse to address: income inequality, racism, corruption,a willingness to excuse bigotry.

Let鈥檚 say Trump goes down in disgrace from Mueller or the SDNY or Congressional investigations. We鈥檙e left with a big question: How did a guy like that get elected? Why do so many still support him? We can鈥檛 just say 鈥淔ox News鈥 or 鈥淩ussians.鈥 We have serious issues to sort out.
 
The GOP鈥檚 whole game of wasting votes in Congress to target others 鈥渙n the record鈥, for leg they have no intent to pass, is a disgrace.

Stop wasting the American peoples鈥 time + learn to govern. Our jobs aren鈥檛 for campaigning, & that鈥檚 exactly what these bluff-votes are for.

鈥淏anks are acutely sensitive about their reputations because they are in a business acutely susceptible... if consumers vote with their wallets.鈥

Economic activism (ex: the fossil fuel divestment mvmt we saw at Standing Rock, and pressuring business re: assault rifles) works.
Progressives like @AOC and @AyannaPressley are leveraging seats on the Financial Services Committee & a huge social media following to confront bank executives and discourage them from funding oil pipelines, gun makers and private prisons. (via @Zachary)

Gotta love how the same folks who tolerate+ acquiesce to building a medieval wall along the entire US southern border as a (non-evidence based) solution for a 鈥渃risis鈥 that doesn鈥檛 exist are now suddenly concerned that pursuing a nat鈥檒 response to climate change is 鈥渦nrealistic.鈥
 
The #GreenNewDeal is a positive vision - a roadmap - for our future.
"If we're going to make progress, we need to declare our North Star, and our North Star is 100% renewable energy, it's Medicare-for-All, it's tuition-free public colleges, it's investing in technology and renewable resources" -@AOC on her vision for America
 
These are flood risk maps for THIS YEAR. The time to have *already begun implementing* a #GreenNewDeal was a year ago.

The next best time is now.

It鈥檚 far less costly to get shovels in the ground now, before disaster, w just transitions, infra investment, & good,dignified jobs.
Pretty much every major body of water east of the Rockies is at elevated risk of flooding in the coming months.

Now that Special Counsel Mueller has submitted his report to the Attorney General, it is imperative for Mr. Barr to make the full report public and provide its underlying documentation and findings to Congress. #ReleaseTheReport
 
The 馃悩 in the room here is big money & lobbyist donors.

Our current system incentivizes *all,* no matter the party, to place big donors before voters.

No primaries means lobbyist馃挵will have even *more* influence over policy, bc voters will have one less avenue to pursue change.
Folks often try to make this convo abt members from mod, swing districts.

We get that those members do what they need to rep.

But many members of Congress got there via safe primaries. It鈥檚 how many working people, women, + poc folks overcome institutional bias to get elected.
 
The majority of Americans live in safe districts, where gen election isn鈥檛 competitive.

By stymieing primaries, you deny most voters their best chance at choosing their representative. We also deny the party the opportunity of training up a future bench, something we badly need.

When I ran, the existing Dem tech was so obsolete that we developed our own canvassing app. It was so good it spun off into its own startup (reach.vote).

It鈥檚 a shame that innovative technologies proven to work at winning elections won鈥檛 be used by our party.

When we choose NOT to establish healthcare as a right (including mental health!) it spills over + compounds the costs of homelessness, mass incarceration, & police confrontation.

Huge update: JP Morgan & Wells Fargo have announced that they will no longer fund private prisons.

How did this happen? Through organizing people & public pressure!

Everyday folks began paying attention to who was funding for-profit prisons & family separation,+ acted on it. 猬囷笍
This is progress, and there is still work to do.

There should not be a for-profit industry behind the detention and incarceration of human beings.

The US locks up more people than anywhere else in the world, incl China. For-profit caging shouldn鈥檛 be legal in the first place.

The reason FOX News + Breitbart attack @AOC, @IlhanMN, @RashidaTlaib so much is because Rupert Murdoch and Robert Mercer want older, white voters to feel they have nothing in common with black & brown people who want to tax billionaires like them and provide health care to all.
 
Yes, and this is not just my story - this is true of wide swaths of our entire generation, who are now poised to become a much more influential civic + electoral bloc as we mature into our 30s & beyond.
In order to understand @aoc, you have to look at what she experienced鈥 and what she didn鈥檛. Red Scare, Reaganomics & prosperous 90s were all before her time. Her adulthood was defined by financial crisis, debt & climate change. No wonder she and her peers are moving left
 
You know what鈥檚 amusing about this whole thing?

Our leg staff (who help w Qs) *also* worked in restaurants, grew up in Appalachian trailer parks, and come from immigrant families.

Wait until they find out I actually PAY them to do their jobs, coach them myself,& offer feedback.

@kraigschmidt Everyone鈥檚 last names are hyphenated - so you children take the first names of each of their parents.

ex: my dad was Ocasio-ABC, my mom鈥檚 was Cortez-XYZ

So I am Ocasio-Cortez

(When they married, my mom became Ocasio-Cortez too - wives keep father鈥檚 name + take husband鈥檚 too)
 
@AOC Didn鈥檛 know that.

So how does it work when both parents鈥 names are already hyphenated?

Also, big fan of your work!!! Keep crushing it.

My last name is Ocasio-Cortez. Full stop. That鈥檚 my name.

No, you can鈥檛 say 鈥淐ortez.鈥 I鈥檝e never used that in my life. 鈥淐ortez鈥 is referring to someone else.

Even if they鈥榬e trying to be rude + wrong, my dad鈥檚 last name was Ocasio anyway.

(His name was hyphenated too, though.)
For the curious, in Latinx culture children take *both* their parents鈥 names.

It鈥檚 not a 鈥減rogressive, new thing.鈥 It鈥檚 just how some names work. PR hyphenates, others mark differently. Your last name = the families that came together to make you.

AOC is also fine though :)
 
By the way: Fox News likes to say my name (incorrectly) as 鈥淐ortez,鈥 which I can only imagine is bc that sounds more 鈥榮tereotypically鈥 Hispanic + probably incites more 鈥榓nxiety鈥 for them.

Last year, Florida voters approved restoring voting rights to 1.5 million ex-felons.

A GOP-controlled House committee just approved a requirement that would force them to pay court costs (even if not sentenced to do so) before they can legally register to vote.
