Ilhan Omar Demands Socialism & Vote-By-Mail 'As a Start' Amid Pandemic
Radical Democrat lists far-left agenda items as America battles COVID-19 crisis
Controversial Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) is calling for her list of socialist demands to be made "universal" amid the coronavirus pandemic "as a start."
The radical Minnesota lawmaker is also demanding that vote-by-mail is introduced across the country before the next election as part of her wishlist of progressive agenda items.
According to "Squad" member Rep. Omar, mail-in voting, along with other socialist policies such as "free" healthcare, a universal basic income, and housing for all, must be offered to everyone living in the United States “as a start.”
“Here’s what we need to make universal, as a start,” Omar said on Twitter, before listing healthcare, school meals, vote-by-mail, housing, and basic income:

🍏 School meals
💵 Basic income
Omar's calls come as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Democrats seek to pack the next coronavirus relief package with a wishlist of unrelated progressive demands.
Democrats, including Omar's progressive “Squad” members, aim to use the coronavirus pandemic as a means to score political victories for the Democratic Party agenda.
Even former Vice President Joe Biden (D), the Democrat Party’s presumptive nominee, is calling for the crisis to be used to push Dem policy.
According to Biden, the coronavirus pandemic serves as an “incredible opportunity to not just dig out of this crisis but to fundamentally transform the country:”

That effort has been overwhelmingly apparent, as influential Democrats — from former President Barack Obama to failed Trump challenger Hillary Clinton — increase their calls for changes to election laws, strongly advocating vote-by-mail and ballot harvesting, according to Breitbart.
This is hardly the first time Omar has called for mail-in voting, stating over the weekend that every registered voter should be allowed to vote by mail in future elections, “no questions asked:”

Her fellow “Squad” members have also joined her calls for universal health care, housing, and income.
In September, Ocasio-Cortez proclaimed that the U.S. could not pride itself on being an “advanced society” until it guarantees the right to many of the things Omar outlined on Monday, including housing, health care, and education.
“But until we do not guarantee the right to housing until we do not guarantee health care care and education, we cannot call ourselves an advanced society,” she stated.
“It’s a basic right along with education and health care. Once we get these basics covered, then our country can earn the right to call ourselves an advanced society,” she continued.
“What we are experiencing right now in housing in the United States is barbarism.”
