It is well known that self care is a basic human right. Overwhelmingly popular new Congressperson elect, Alexandria Ocasio-Ortez made self care part of the national discussion when she bravely shared on social media that she was taking some time for self care because of the demands of being a very busy professional in Washington DC.
The most progressive point of her self care is that she took a few days for self-care BEFORE she started her new job. This has been widely applauded by every one with an open mind in America, if not the whole world. The socialist representative does not just talk the talk; she walks the walk, showing every day Americans a brief glimpse into our future in socialism. All Americans will be given paid time off for self care even before they start the new job of their choice.
Sensing some rich corporation blow back, an insider revealed that legislation will soon be brought up in one of the chambers of Congress that will be called The Affordable Self Care Act. “The greedy corporations who hoard 99% of wealth in America can pay for it. Whatever the future employees choose will be paid for: yoga, white water rafting, days at a spa, whatever the individual chooses will be paid for by the employer, no questions asked.” disclosed the source. “And that is just the beginning. If a worker feels like skateboarding or taking a walk in the park with a latte, theyknow best when they need a few “I need to focus on me days”; this is a basic human right!”
Socialists are ready for the usual right wing push back, like “who will pay for this”, and similar negative responses. “They will just pay for it, like a dental plan. revealed the insider.
