Fmr. AOC Campaign Aide: ‘Democracy Should Mean Taking Power and Wealth ... and Making Sure It Belongs to Everyone’

‘We need politicians who are going to propose solutions as big as the problems that people face’

EXCERPT:

SHAHID: “I think we need politicians who are going to propose solutions as big as the problems that people face. That's the reason I think Medicare-for-all and the Green New Deal are catching on. I don’t think it is about democratic socialism or any of these labels. It is about reclaiming what democracy means, and democracy means preventing an aristocracy. Democracy should mean taking power and wealth from those who hoard it and making sure it belongs to everyone. I don’t think that’s Beto O’Rourke’s message right now, but it is the message of several other Democrats.”
