The Working Families Party and all four members of the ‘Squad’ unveiled an agenda Thursday evening designed to push Joe Biden to the far-left should he win the presidency in November.
Known as the “People’s Charter,” the plan seeks universal health care, re-allocation of resources away from policing, canceling student debt, and advancing the tenets behind the Green New Deal.
Fox News reports that “a number of local and federal lawmakers have signed on, including the four members of the freshman squad.”
Those four members consist of Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI).
“The vision laid out in the People’s Charter is exactly why we’re going to beat Donald Trump in November,” Omar said in a statement.
“Organizing people around the promise of something better – that’s how we’ll win. And when we do, we’ll be ready to fulfill that promise.”
Politico writes “the policy platform is part of a strategy to push Biden to the left if he wins the presidency.”
