Beta claims living close to work is a right...

Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke now claims you have a “right” to live near your job.“ Living close to work shouldn't be a luxury for the rich,” the former Texas congressman tweeted Monday. “It's a right for everyone.”

O’Rourke didn’t explain how it’s a right – or if he considers it a constitutional or a human right. But in a video posted on Twitter, the Democrat argued that living closer to one’s work would not only “reduce our impact on climate change and greenhouse emissions” but would also “improve the quality of life” for people.

In the video, O’Rourke claimed “we force lower-income working Americans to drive one, two, three hours in either direction to get to their jobs, very often minimum wage jobs. They’re working two or three of them right now.”

“Rich people are going to have to allow -- or be forced to allow -- lower-income people to live near them,” he said.

1. It is obvious Beto will not be the nominee. Beto is running for Veep or a cabinet position.

He needs to show his moneybags wife he can accomplish something.

This guy one-ups himself on stupid on a daily basis

3. He has doubled down on giving up.

He threw in the towel the second he followed Swalwell down the confiscation road.

4. He probably could've beaten Ted Cruz if he would have distanced himself from his

previous gun-grabbing rhetoric (before he was widely known around Texas). Instead, he doubled-down on that nonsense, which immediately sank his campaign.

This guy is working towards something, but it damn sure isn't winning elections.

8. Democrats never learn that pushing for draconian gun laws is a foolish plan. ...

Now some even are talking about mandatory gun buybacks (gun confiscation).

I predict they will regret that in 2020.

13. The only reason he came as close as he did to Cruz was Cruz ain't as popular as past Texas Senators

That and the outside funding beto got from the leftists

14. Agreed. He sure had a lot of folks snowed, so we *missed a bullet* with that one.

I think he's a dangerous piece of shit, and hope he fades into oblivion after being run over repeatedly by the karma train.

7. Who is denying this to them?

If they can afford a place that close, then what law is it that is preventing them from doing so?

17. Does employer have to pay for your moving, or must it move near YOU?

What if I'm in Texas and want an ocean lifeguards job? PS, the gulf is NOT an ocean!
