Have to admit though, she is cheap entertainment lol
She's the female reincarnation of Gomer Pyle. The media have recognized this natural personality trait and that's where her future lies after her two yrs of fame in Congress have ended. She's too vapid to carry her own show on CNN, but she would fit in perfectly on The View. It's easy to visualize her sitting next to Joy Behar.

I don’t see that. She beat a long respected Democrat in Joseph Crowley, to get the seat. She ran on a radicalized/alt left platform.

And, she’s done what they voted for her to do, she put out the Green New Deal.

In fact, many see her as the True leader of the Democrat Party because she’s taken the lead and stands on the alt left agenda.

I see New York keeping her in office.

The Australian government subsidizes most of the cost of prescription drugs. Help Joe or Bernie get elected in 2020 and you can get your HIV drug for $8.00. Probably get the latest iPhone and a GED for free. Let's all try to make America even greater but without the MAGA hats.

Actually the $8 drug is a generic competitor, so it’s not actually the same company selling it that cheap. But after digging more into this the patent expired last year on that drug, why isn’t there a generic drug here you ask? Because the FTC is investigating a “pay for delay” agreement between Gilead and Teva. Are you ok with behavior like this?

If you look at the details of how Primatene Mist got removed from the market you'll be disgusted and angry. It's as corrupt as it gets. The FDA and a select group of pharmaceutical companies (all of whom make patented inhalers) got together and uses the oh-so convenient excuse of CFC propellant to remove it from the market. But if you look at the minutes of the meetings in the Federal Registry you'll see that it's breathtaking BS.

The group (the FDA and the special interests) created absurd conditions for bringing Primatene Mist back to market, some of which even the prescription inhalers cannot satisfy. One of the main ones was the nozzle cannot clog. But of course it clogs, if you don't rinse it daily. So do prescription inhalers.

The makers finally jumped through all the hoops and cleared all the hurdles, only to have the FDA invent new conditions for them to satisfy. But a few months ago the FDA had no choice but to approve Primatene Mist to reenter the market. Cue the many websites touting the extreme dangers of using Primatene Mist for asthma and COPD, and recommending only the prescription versions.

Also, cue the sudden introduction of genetic albuterol and other inhalers, at a third the cost of prescription, years before the patents have expired.

AOC - the gift that keeps on giving:
Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY): “Our guarantee to having a home comes before someone else’s privilege to earn a profit.”
Dan Bongino translated her remarks, tweeting, “In other words, AOC believes you should go to work to pay everyone else’s mortgage. I’d laugh at this if she weren’t serious.”
