One Democrat just flattened Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez with this stunning announcement
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez thought she was one the verge of a career-defining victory.
And that’s because one Democrat just flattened Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez with this stunning announcement.
Democrats in Congress are now engaged in a high stakes game of chicken.
Nancy Pelosi promised to link a $1.2 trillion fake infrastructure bill to a $3.5 trillion Green New Deal and socialist spending bill drafted by Bernie Sanders to win the votes of both moderates and leftists.
Socialist like Ocasio-Cortez only would support the $1.2 trillion bill – which is still a down payment on the Green New Deal – if moderates swallowed the $3.5 trillion Bernie Sanders spending bill.
That agreement is now on the rocks thanks to Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema.
Senator Sinema’s office released a statement declaring her opposition to a $3.5 trillion spending bill saying the $1.2 trillion fake infrastructure bill “is a historic win for our nation’s everyday families and employers and, like every proposal, should be considered on its own merits,” Sinema spokesperson John LaBombard declared. “Proceedings in the U.S. House will have no impact on Kyrsten’s views about what is best for our country – including the fact that she will not support a budget reconciliation bill that costs $3.5 trillion.”
If Sinema wins her fight to lower the price tag of the Bernie Sanders bill – which would push America toward becoming a cradle-to-grave socialist state – Ocasio-Cortez and her allies control enough votes to tank the $1.2 trillion spending bill.
Nancy Pelosi has to walk a tightrope.
Pelosi’s job became more difficult when West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin released a statement backing up Sinema and urging Pelosi to delink the bills.
“It would send a terrible message to the American people if this bipartisan bill is held hostage. I urge my colleagues in the House to move swiftly to get this once in a generation legislation to the President’s desk for his signature,” Manchin’s statement read.
No less than Joe Biden’s Presidency hangs in the balance.
If this deal falls apart against the backdrop of the Afghanistan debacle, Americans will view him as a failed President.
