Ocasio Cortez Twitter



On Monday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took a shot at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Republicans, accusing them of holding up coronavirus relief for Americans.

“People across the country are going hungry, COVID is set to explode, and Mitch McConnell dismissed the Senate last week,” the Democratic congresswoman tweeted. “I don’t know how these people can sleep at night. I really don’t.”

2 days ago  In response, Ocasio-Cortez said that Cruz 'almost had me murdered 3 weeks ago so you can sit this one out,' and called on him to resign. Another Republican, Sen. Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee. Chip Roy (R-Texas) on Thursday demanded Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) apologize for comments she made slamming Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) on Twitter earlier in the day. 2 days ago Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez shut down anti-LGBT+ Trump supporter Ted Cruz, telling him he “almost had her murdered” three weeks ago during the Capitol riots. Ocasio-Cortez took to Twitter on.

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), taking note that the GOP has offered a $500 billion relief bill that Democrats have blocked because they think it is insufficient, responded: “Why is your party filibustering $500 billion in COVID relief? And Joe Biden is cheering them on. Thinking that blocking relief somehow helps Dems win Georgia.”

Ocasio-Cortez responded with another attack, tweeting, “The House doesn’t have filibusters, ‪@tedcruz. We also passed several COVID relief packages to the Senate that not only include >$500 billion, but also prioritize helping real people as opposed to Wall St bailouts the GOP tries to pass off as ‘relief.’ Nice try though.”

“I hope someone else runs Cruz’s Twitter account because it’d be pretty embarrassing if a US Senator didn’t know this,” she added. “Almost as embarrassing as when Sen. @JohnCornyn didn’t appear to know that Puerto Ricans don’t get to vote in the Presidential.”

Cruz fired back: “@AOC seems not to know there are Democrats in the Senate. Or that Joe Biden (also a Dem) is publicly calling on Senate Dems to continue filibustering COVID relief because he thinks it will help them win Georgia.”

“Democrats in the Senate have more than once filibustered a vote on the scaled-back GOP proposal, most recently at the end of October. The bill, less than a third of the size of the $2.2 trillion figured back by Democratic leaders, included boosted federal unemployment benefits, another round of funding for the Paycheck Protection Program, a key small business rescue program, money for schools and liability protections for businesses,” Fox News noted.

As reported by The Hill, reports that Biden has been pressuring House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer to pass a less extensive bill are “incorrect,” according to a Biden spokesman:

The New York Times reported that Biden’s team was pressing Pelosi and Schumer to cut a deal during the lame-duck, even if it’s smaller than Democratic leaders in Congress prefer. Andrew Bates, a spokesman for Biden, said it was “incorrect” that Biden was explicitly pushing Pelosi and Schumer to pass a pared-down bill. He didn’t respond to a question about if Biden, who has repeatedly said he wants a deal this year, could support a bill less than $2.2 trillion.

“As the pandemic worsens and the U.S. economy teeters on the edge of another downturn, President-elect Joe Biden is ramping up calls for Congress to pass another coronavirus relief bill before he’s sworn in,” Politico reported on Saturday. “At the same time, he’s aligned himself with Democratic leaders in Congress, who have insisted on roughly $2 trillion in newrelief spending — a price tag Senate Republicans so farhave refused to accept.”

Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) sparred Saturday over the upcoming Georgia Senate runoffs, with the progressive congresswoman urging Democrats to turn out to vote and the GOP senator pushing the liberal firebrand to go to Georgia and campaign in person.

The back-and-forth began after Ocasio-Cortez this week encouraged supporters in Georgia to vote for the two Democrats running in the Jan. 5 runoffs in order to help the party secure a Senate majority and advance progressive priorities such as a $15 minimum wage and expanded access to health care.

Perdue shared a report about Ocasio-Cortez's remarks, adding, 'Our offer still stands - come on down to Georgia, we'll buy your ticket!'

The GOP senator had urged the progressive lawmaker to visit the state last month and campaign for his Democratic opponent, Jon Ossoff, telling Fox News then, 'I want to buy her ticket. I want her to come.'

Ocasio-Cortez fired back on Saturday in a tweet referencing scrutiny Perdue has faced this year surrounding his stock trades during the coronavirus pandemic, something Democrats have hoped will sway the race in favor of Ossoff.

'And what money are you going to buy that ticket with, Perdue? The curiously 'well-timed' stocks you've cashed in on while in office?' Ocasio-Cortez wrote.

The Georgia senator pushed back, writing, 'I thought 'free' stuff was your thing?'

'Either way, I'm in Georgia talking to voters. We'd love to have you,' he added.

Ocasio-Cortez has been campaigning in support of Georgia Democrats over the past several weeks, with her team reporting raising more than $600,000 for outside groups seeking to elect Ossoff and fellow Democratic Senate candidate the Rev. Raphael Warnock, according to Politico.

Additionally, other members of 'the squad' of progressive congresswomen - Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) - have reportedly worked to boost Muslim voter turnout in the state, including with robocalls, the newspaper reported.

Neither Ossoff nor Warnock backs 'Medicare for All,' a top priority among those in the party's liberal wing such as Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). Still, progressives have joined efforts to boost the Georgia Democrats as part of a push by Democrats to secure a Senate majority and thereby total control of Congress.

'Bernie Sanders wants there to be a Democratic Senate. If we're going to see any progress on Joe Biden's pro-worker economic proposals, we need to have a Democratic Senate,' Jeff Weaver, Sanders's longtime adviser, told Politico.

Democrats would need to win both Senate races in order to hold a majority in the Senate, with Vice President-elect Kamala Harris casting tiebreaking votes. However, Republicans would maintain their narrow majority if at least one of the Georgia GOP candidates, Perdue or Sen. Kelly Loeffler, pulls out a win.
