AOC: Dems Get Liberal Wishlist With Wins in Georgia 1

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) on Thursday pushed
Democratic voters to turn out in Georgia to boost long-sought
liberal objectives like the $15 minimum wage and universal health

“If we win in Georgia, we can help transition this country to a
$15 minimum wage; we can make sure that we expand people’s access
to health care,” she said, adding that Americans deserved a steady
flow of stimulus checks as a response to the coronavirus

. @aoc on IG Live
tonight said if Democrats win Georgia then they will be able to
pass her radical healthcare and economic agenda.

For years Ocasio-Cortez has backed increasing the federal
minimum wage to�$15, a goal that has the support of President-elect
Joe Biden but could

. She has long criticized
moderates on policy in the Democratic Party, favoring instead
big-ticket liberal proposals, such as Medicare for All and the
Green New Deal—each of which would cost U.S. taxpayers

While Georgia Senate candidate Jon Ossoff (D.) has expressed
admiration for the progressive goals of Medicare for All and the
Green New Deal, he has avoided endorsing them during his run.
Fellow Democratic candidate Raphael Warnock has likewise dodged
questions about
both of them
