The democratic party and its leadership have failed to defend the rights and wellbeing of the multiracial working class, Black Americans, the LGBTQ+ community, US immigrants, women, and all those affected by systemic inequality and injustice. The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in the deaths of close to 200,000 Americans and an economic recession that appears to be approaching the severity of the Great Depression. Congressional democratic party leadership, under Chuck Schumer, has merely resulted in performative resistance to the neo-fascist Trump administration while they approve his multi-billion dollar military budget increases, allow children and families to be held in concentration camps at the border, prevent veterans from returning home from endless war overseas, bail-out their billionaire donors' and their multinational corporations instead of working-class and middle-class people, and deny Americans healthcare during a pandemic. Chuck Schumer has proven himself to be an elitist neoliberal corporatist who cares more about maintaining the status quo than ameliorating the pain and suffering of everyday Americans.

We need a progressive in Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (AOC) as the senator to replace Chuck Schumer from New York. AOC's policies and message fit the urgency of the moment and are the key to fighting the corruption that dangerously pollutes our political system. Unlike Schumer, AOC supports Medicare for All, The Green New Deal, comprehensive criminal justice reform, housing as a human right, ending endless war, and many other policies that acknowledge the dignity of Americans and are simply basic human rights.
