Democratic socialist candidates picked up some important wins in House elections this month, and leaders of the party’s far-left flank are touting those successes to counter a backlash from moderates.

A number of Democratic candidates were backed by Democratic Socialists of America, and pushed policies like "Medicare-for-all," the Green New Deal, defunding police and abolishing student debt.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., the leader of the influential far-left group of freshman congresswomen known as the “Squad,” said after the Nov. 3 election that “we also learned that progressive policies do not hurt candidates.”

“Every single candidate that co-sponsored Medicare-for-all in a swing district kept their seat. We also know that co-sponsoring the Green New Deal was not a sinker. Mike Levin (D-Calif.) was an original co-sponsor of the legislation, and he kept his seat,” she told The New York Times.

Among the winning progressives was Rep.-elect Mondaire Jones, D-N.Y. Along with Medicare-for-all and the Green New Deal, he backed calls to partially defund police departments and abolish cash bail.

“Congress must cease all funding that militarizes police forces, repeal the 1994 Crime Bill that accelerated mass incarceration, and abolish cash bail, which condemns poor people to pretrial detention while more affluent people await trial from the comfort of their homes,” he wrote in an article in June.

y are you against medicare for all? You are aware that when people without insurance still cost us money. You pay with the money you pay for insurance and the service you receive. Why does a pill that costs pennies cost $25 on your bill? Also, if some of the people had insurance, it would mean a full-time job for many because some companies refuse workers, full-time employees, to avoid. insurance costs. In my case, if they allowed me to opt out of my coverage, I would want the money the company pays added to my salary.  Stop drinking the GOP Fool-aid.

Helping the poor is socialist?
All of this time, I thought it was the Christian thing to do.
Proverbs 14:21 Whoever despises his neighbor is a sinner, but blessed is he who is generous to the poor.

Proverbs 14:31 Whoever oppresses a poor man insults his Maker, but he who is generous to the needy honors him.

Proverbs 16:19 It is better to be of a lowly spirit with the poor than to divide the spoil with the proud.

Proverbs 19:17 Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will repay him for his deed.

Proverbs 22:9 The generous will themselves be blessed, for they share their food with the poor.

Proverbs 22:16 Whoever oppresses the poor to increase his own wealth, or gives to the rich, will only come to poverty.
