I want to harness the energy, enthusiasm and wisdom from new members and use it to deliver for the people back home.”

“I am immensely proud to be a member of this historic freshman class, and to join the CPC just as Senator-Elect Welch, and Senator Sanders did before me,” Balint said.

  1. Her “qualifications” for office were achieved before she was even born, just like the other caucus members. Identity politics is not merit-based.

  2. Forgive my cynicism, but I think her election was bought and paid for; and citizens who voted according to what they saw in the ubiquitous tv ads and mailed propaganda fell for it.

  3. She is the next progressive political rising star selected and paid for by international entities with deep pockets, like Obama. Why? To support the UN 2030 agenda and The Great Reset, like Obama. This is why Trump could not be allowed to win the 2020 election. Trump wasn’t supporting the UN and globalist agenda.

    • Yes…….exactly….anointed and funded by the global salon leadership. Think: $990,000 laundered into her campaign coffers via the national LGBTQ Political Action Group to fund her slick advertising and subtly (but distinctly) divisive t.v. ads. She will strut and ruffle feathers with extremist left / woke rhetoric and posturing, show off her faux “hip” Vermont school-mom affect, play up the former teacher, descendant of immigrants, and LGBTQ-identified narrative. AOC Vermont style.

  4. Yes, the dear congresswoman-elect is already tainted. Her campaign happily accepted dirty stolen funds from the toddler executives of FTX and Alameda and used it to lie to the populace. I never saw the local commercials. Does anyone watch local TV anymore ? But I got a plethora of mailings about how wonderful our new legislative crook is. Prove it Ms. Balint. Give the damn money back !

  5. Marina Brown cautioned me about reading Ayaan Hirsi Ali, who was portrayed as fascist and Islamophobic. She should be in Congress.

  6. No mention of superstar AOC – is it because she’s under investigation for ethics violations by her own party? A few Democrats are switching to GOP – can’t stomach the debauchery of the Left anymore. Becca can enjoy the dimming limelight and gather up all the party favors for a little while longer. Every passing day more exposure and more desperate attempts to retain power. The DNC mothership is taking on more water and sinking into the abyss from which it came – taking the pRegressives down with them. Hallelujah!

  7. Damage is ongoing, this is just another taint on Vermont.
    SAnders and BalINT – Make Welch look like a saint?
