Ocasio-Cortez Gets in Embarrassing Battle With Ted Cruz

Ocasio-Cortez Gets In Embarrassing Battle With Ted Cruz

(RightWing.org) – Progressive firebrand Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has an odd working relationship with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX). At times, she sides with him, like when the two of them sent out a joint letter lashing out at Apple for removing a Hong Kong app from its store used by protesters there.

However, most recently, Ocasio-Cortez sparred with Cruz on Twitter on November 23 about the contentious stalemate over a new economic stimulus package to offset the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Ocasio-Cortez, also known as AOC, tweeted her concern that Americans were going hungry, but Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) dismissed the Senate for Thanksgiving. Cruz responded by asking her why Democrats continued filibustering the GOP’s COVID-19 relief package with the support of Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden.

The pair sparred again about seven hours later, arguing about filibusters, with Cruz renewing his accusation that Biden wanted Democrats to block a relief package to gain an advantage in the upcoming runoff elections in Georgia next year for two US Senate seats.

It’s been said that all’s fair in politics. However, Americans would benefit if AOC and Cruz could focus their attention on solving problems instead of bickering online.
