Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez @AOC Congresswoman for NY-14 (the Bronx & Queens). In a modern, moral, and wealthy society, no American should be too poor to live. 💯% People-Funded, no lobbyist💰. Jun. 27, 2019 1 min read

Under no circumstances should the House vote for a McConnell-only bill w/ no negotiation with Democrats. Hell no.

That’s an abdication of power we should refuse to accept. They will keep hurting kids if we do.

0 negotiation with the House. We offered crucial amendments to protect children and families - none are even being considered.

A minority is different than a majority. And while the Senate has to deal with its lack of power there, a House majority should have a seat @ the table.

We have time. We can stay in town. We can at LEAST add some amendments to this Senate bill. But to pass it completely unamended with no House input? That seems a bridge too far.


You can follow @AOC.
