They’re in denial mode this morning. They think Trump won again.Huh?
I thought you might enjoy this.Record numbers of women are heading to Congress!
More than 100 women were projected to win seats in the House of Representatives, easily shattering the record. Overwhelmingly they were Democrats who helped the party take control of the chamber.
Women have never held more than 84 of the 435 seats in the House. By 1:30 a.m. Wednesday as the votes were still being counted, 92 had already been declared winners.
“Women made history in a number of ways and were a significant force in flipping many districts from red to blue,” said Kelly Dittmar, a political scientist at the Center for American Women and Politics at Rutgers University.
Many of the winning candidates campaigned on the need for better health care for all Americans. They come from a wide variety of backgrounds — from military veterans to teachers — and many had never run for office before.
Women made inroads in gubernatorial races, too, which are particularly important because of the upcoming redistricting battles.
In both Kansas and Michigan, women flipped states that had been under Republican control. The women who ran this year were remarkably diverse — black, Latina, Native American. But noticeably absent on ballots were more Republican women.
(Some of the women candidates ran on simple, blunt campaign slogans--like Michigan's new governor Gretchen Whitmer who's battle cry was: FIX THE DAMN ROADS!)
Are women fired up?? That's putting it mildly. Watch out boys, we're coming for your club.

See, that is why you cannot have these half decade long, 'one-view-perspective' College degrees that are deemed entirely legitimate. Cortez is essentially regurgitating what she was taught in College, (possibly) genuinely thinking it is the objective truth about the world, which others lack information about (as, they do not have her degree). Meanwhile, unbeknownst to her, her Professors' were spouting their own parties/sides claims as 'how things actually work', and silenced/deleted all other counterarguments/perspectives.Her best interview to date and easily the most honest
Medicare for all would up that to $7 trillion per year.In 2017, the United States spent about $3.5 trillion, or 18 percent of GDP, on health expenditures – more than twice the average among developed countries. Of that $3.5 trillion, $1.5 trillion, is directly or indirectly financed by the federal government.
