New York Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s position is to build fewer build fewer jails and build health care, which is probably a start. However, murder is up 800% in Baltimore. In New York murder is up 18%.Ã‚Â A better place to start, though, is by encouraging nuclear family units with both a mother and father at home. AOC hit it on the head where she said to work on mental illness. There are so many things where we could start and at least AOC is thinking on how to address the issues and that is positive. While many have criticized her in the past on both sides of the aisle, at least AOC has ideas if only our party would listen to her and see where it goes.
