New Jersey Senator Cory Booker refused to rule-out a series of tax hikes should he win the White House over the weekend; saying America is “far more patriotic than people are expressing” and citizens now need to “invest in each other.”
“We live in a nation with far more patriotism than people are expressing,” Booker said. “What I mean is folks want the best for the country. We know if your family doesn’t have a great public school, great health care, we’re all suffering and creating greater costs.”
“I’m going to run a campaign that speaks to all of America… I don’t think Democrats should be defined by beating Republicans,” he added. “We should be defined by uniting Americans. This is a moment where across this country, farm towns, factory towns, cities to suburbs, we have so much common pain where Americans are seeing, from the cost of prescription drugs, cost of college, we’re all hurting because we have not envisioned an economy that invests in each other.”
BOOKER GOES BERSERK: McConnell Suggests ‘ETHICS INQUIRY’ over Cory’s ‘Unusual Behavior’
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell weighed-in on Sen. Cory Booker’s “unusual behavior” during Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings this week; saying he “wouldn’t be surprised” if there was an ethics inquiry into his bizarre antics.
McConnell was speaking with radio host Hugh Hewitt when he was asked to comment on Booker’s repeated assertions that he was “breaking the rules” by intentionally leaking Kavanaugh’s confidential emails.
“When you break the Senate rules, it’s something the Ethics Committee could take a look at. And that would be up to them to decide. But it’s routinely looked at [by] the Ethics Committee,” McConnell said. “They have an obligation to look into violations of the Senate rules, and it wouldn’t surprise me if they did.”
Booker fired-back at McConnell over the possible ethics investigation, telling the leading Republican to “bring it!”
“I have really two words to say to Mitch McConnell if he wants to do ethics charges — bring it!” he said.

BOOKER GOES BERSERK: Explodes, Says ‘Green New Deal’ Same as FIGHTING NAZIS
Sen. Cory Booker doubled-down on Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’ ‘Green New Deal’ Friday; telling a crowd of supporters the fight against climate change is the same as those who fought against Nazi Germany during World War II.
“We have to deal with this, our planet is in peril. We need to be bold, that’s why I co-sponsored the resolution for the Green New Deal,” said Booker.
“We are a nation that has done impossible things before. We need to be bold again in America. When the planet has been imperiled in the past, who came forward to save earth from the scourge of Nazism? We came forward,” he added.
You can’t make this up.
