“The GOP’s turn to whole game, votes in the Congress to target other ‘tweeted on the plate for the leg [legislative] you have to pass intent, is a disgrace,” Ocasio-Cortez. “Stop the American peoples’ time + learn to govern. Our jobs are not for the election campaign, and that is exactly what this bluff-votes.”
