To identify most of the Democrats, like the liberals, for the first time, according to a survey Tuesday, marking the latest sign of a shift to the left of the Democratic party, as he staggers to the edge on issues like Medicare-for-all, Amnesty for illegal immigrants and a “Green New Deal.”
According to the Gallup poll, the percentage of Democrats, liberals identify an average of 51 percent. That was up from 50 percent in 2017. In 1994, only 25 percent identified as liberal and 25% identified as conservative. Among Americans overall, conservatives outnumber liberals by nine points, the 19 points in Gallup’s first survey in 1992.
The survey is the latest proof of a party, the swing to the left, accepting positions in the mainstream, the once on the outskirts of the party’s debate — particularly on health care, economy and immigration.
SOCIALISM RISING: DEMS TAKE THE HOUSE TO PUSH MASSIVE GOVERNMENT EXPANSION, AS A PARTY TO THE LEFT LURCHES
On Tuesday, the New York City mayor Bill de Blasio announced the launch of “the largest, most comprehensive plan in the nation to” guarantee health care for all in the city-including the illegal immigrants.
“While the Federal government is working to good health care for millions of Americans, New York City leads the way by ensuring that every New Yorker has to pay for access to high quality, comprehensive access to health care, regardless of residence status or ability,” he said in a statement.
De Blasio’s announcement came after California’s new democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom outlined a similarly ambitious health agenda for the state, and provides more benefits for illegal immigrants, and protect ObamaCare. Medicine, the state health insurance program, now let illegal immigrants on the rolls remain until they are 26, of 19, according to Newsom’s new agenda.
This left votes present once-fringe ideas are always louder in Washington, particularly with the new intake of members in the house, were bold in embracing left-wing policy proposals and terms such as “Democratic socialism”.
A New York Times analysis showed that a third of the Senate have endorsed Democrats and more than half of the house Democrats, Medicare-for-all proposals-including a number of potential 2020 presidential hopefuls.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY, one of the new members in the house and a rising Democratic star, has Finance pushed universal health care, as well as a 70-percent tax for top earners, which is an expansive “Green New Deal”, she said, that a “war level, only the economic mobilization plan for 100% renewable energy.”
A draft is circulating around the Congress, a Committee asks for will be formed to design a plan, and sets out a framework to fulfil the elimination of greenhouse gas emissions from the production and the agriculture and “dramatically” increasing energy sources to 100 percent of its electricity needs from renewable sources.
If that’s not ambitious enough, the proposal describes this as “a historic opportunity to eliminate, practically, to make poverty in the United States, and the prosperity, wealth and economic security, all those involved in the transformation.” Their proposals on the economic front include a job-guarantee-program offers “a living wage job to any person you want” a “just transition” for workers affected by climate change, basic income programs, universal health care “and all others that may keep like the Committee to be appropriate, the promotion of economic security, labour market, flexibility and entrepreneurism.”
So far a number of members of the house, as well as top-prospects to 2020, have offered their support for the proposal.
It is therefore no surprise that Ocasio-Cortez has the concept of “Democratic socialism.” Another new house member Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., a member of the Democratic socialists of America. In the Senate, sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., has called a democratic, socialist, and ran a strong 2016 primary challenge for the ultimate candidacy of Hillary Clinton.
The mood in the Congress has extended to the voters, especially the young people and Democrats, have shown the polls, the warming of socialism over capitalism.
