Brian McKay's answer to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said 'It is time that we pay people what they are worth.' How will she do it? - Quora
New Considerations are Starting to Arise: With automation destroying many jobs and retail dying we are soon faced with a future where 40 percent of the workforce isn’t needed. A society cannot survive 40 percent of its people being hungry. Things like guaranteed minimum income have to start being explored. If you’re opposed to people making a minimum wage, you’re definitely opposed to preparing for that future. It’s not a matter of if, but when.

I could keep going and get into GDP impact numbers, but these are the basic points. Basically I believe in a living wage because I am a capitalist and hope to have a society where I can continue to be a responsible one. Sure, I have had periods of true sacrifice to start businesses. That doesn’t mean I expect that from people that don’t have my risk tolerance or make up.

“AOC sucks” is the new “Lock her up”
But at every turn, Republicans appear hell-bent on going after Ocasio-Cortez, much in the same way they did to Clinton for years.

Philip Bump at the Washington Post found that Fox News mentions Ocasio-Cortez more than any likely or already-declared 2020 presidential candidates besides Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA). From January 1 to February 16 of this year, Fox talked about Ocasio-Cortez more than it did Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).

Payments to corporation owned by Ocasio-Cortez aide come under scrutiny - The Washington Post
“The arrangement, first reported by conservative outlets, left hidden who ultimately profited from the payments — a sharp juxtaposition with Ocasio-Cortez’s calls for transparency in politics. She has called dark money ‘the enemy to democracy.’”

The Congresswoman Loves the Swamp – Luke Thompson – Medium
“It looks to me like Chakrabarti was effectively reimbursing AOC for a third of her expenses with Brand New Congress LLC, perhaps so that she would stay in the race despite her mounting debt.”

“All of the above is based on public information. It took me a couple of hours to pull it all together and write it up. I suppose this could be called muckraking, but it’s really just minimal reporting that nobody in the press decided to do. I can’t emphasize enough how easy it was to find all of this information. It’s literally just sitting there. But no reporter bothered to read it. Democracy dies in darkness? Nah. Reporters are just lazy.”
