AOC Has a Challenger
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez shouldn’t get too comfortable in her Washington D.C. office. Republican Scherie Murray recently announced that she’ll challenge AOC in 2020. Maybe AOC will have to start standing on good ideas and not lean against her convenient prop provided by the Justice Democrats.
We’ve had enough of AOC & her toxic politics of division. The people of Queens & the Bronx deserve better. Our country deserves better. Join our movement today ➡️ https://t.co/9TM1lDE7nz pic.twitter.com/oWftV5aMZb

Murray immigrated from Jamaica as a child and quickly became interested in politics. She’s been politically active since becoming a state committeewoman for the New York State Republican Party. Murray recognizes how great the US is, unlike AOC and the other members of her “squad.”
We need more Congress members who truly love America and less that openly criticism our amazing country for internet fame.
House Democrats Call a Truce
The amount of infighting in the dysfunctional Democratic party continues to escalate as the 2020 elections get closer.
I just don't think enough people appreciate exactly how much Congress is like high school.https://t.co/xa49vysz4j

In a statement issued on Thursday, five top members of the Democratic Caucus issued a statement saying that they “will remain clear-eyed with respect to our unity of purpose. Every single voice within the House Democratic Caucus is an important one. We have a shared mission. Onward and upward. Together, House democrats will deliver For The People.”
Pretty words to obfuscate the truth.
The release of this statement coincided with the deletion of tweets sent by various members of the party that condemned the Democratic Caucus. How are the Dems going to respect the country if they can’t even respect themselves? They don’t stand a chance in 2020 at this rate.
Businesses Struggle With News of a Potential Wage Hike
The House of Representatives passed a bill on Thursday that aims to raise the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour. This might sound like a great idea on paper — who doesn’t want more money? The problem is it would be devastating to the 22 million small businesses in the US. The Congressional Budget Office estimated that it would result in 1.3 million people losing their jobs.
Small business owner @RepRossSpano highlights the detrimental effect of a 107% minimum wage hike that would cripple small businesses and cause them to lay off employees, reduce hours, or reduce employee benefits.

Business owners are hoping that the Senate will kill the bill. If they don’t, it’s not the end of small businesses as we know them. The White House promised to veto the bill if push comes to shove.
