(UnitedVoice.com) – Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is the type of person who would cut her nose off to spite her face. Her talent for shoving her foot in her mouth and hurting her party is unmatched. To nobody’s surprise, she has gone and done that again.
On Wednesday, July 28, AOC threw a hissy fit upon learning that Senator Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) was not going to support the Democrat’s $3.5-trillion reconciliation bill in its current form. The senator’s announcement came the same day she helped get the bipartisan infrastructure bill passed its first legislative hurdle. AOC slammed her colleague for not supporting the massive spending bill, mocking Sinema for thinking the bipartisan bill could pass the House.
The Democratic congresswoman then lashed out at the group of bipartisan lawmakers who negotiated the bill, insinuating they aren’t actually bipartisan because they’re all white.
Good luck tanking your own party’s investment on childcare, climate action, and infrastructure while presuming you’ll survive a 3 vote House margin – especially after choosing to exclude members of color from negotiations and calling that a “bipartisan accomplishment.” 👍🏽👍🏽 https://t.co/0VF8Z73vAa

She even posted a photo of their faces to prove whatever asinine point she was trying to make.
A lot of times, “bipartisan agreements” are just as defined by who people in power agree to exclude than include. pic.twitter.com/9o4y3j60fD

Perhaps the congresswoman missed civics class one day, but “bipartisan” has nothing to do with color. The race of the lawmakers who are negotiating bills and getting work done is irrelevant and frankly, it’s more than a little racist to focus on that. White members of Congress have a job to do just like she does. If anyone is blowing her party’s chances of getting the bill passed, it’s her.
