(PresidentialHill.com)- Far-left Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has called on Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer to bully Democratic Senator Kirsten Sinema for her refusal to side with extremist Democrat legislation.
AOC said that Schumer should make her life “as difficult as possible” for refusing to help pass the unprecedented Build Back Better budget legislation, which contains various extremist legislative measures like offering a pathway to citizenship for tens of millions of illegal aliens in the United States.
Sinema joined fellow Democratic Senator Joe Manchin in refusing to pass the legislation, citing concerns that spending trillions more dollars would worsen the inflation crisis already impacting the lowest-paid Americans.
On Tuesday, AOC could be heard telling Schumer to speed up a vote in the chamber, which she followed up with a tweet attacking Sinema and others.
“Actually, he should continue to make their lives as difficult as possible and treat them the way they treat, say, public housing residents,” she said on her Twitter profile.
She referred to Sinema as an “obstructionist” and accused her of making life difficult for parents who want more extended child tax credit.
AOC did not, however, acknowledge that Sinema is more concerned about spending so much money that it raises prices for gas, food, and household goods even further.
Why does AOC never think about the economic impact of spending “government money”?
Let’s hope the last remaining moderates in the Democratic Party hold firm until the 2022 midterms.
