AOC: DEMOCRATS ARE ‘BURNING PRECIOUS TIME’ BY NEGOTIATING WITH REPUBLICANS

From WWW.DAILYWIRE.COM

Democratic Representative of New York Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is pushing back against bipartisan discussions in her latest tweet condemning recent attempts by Democrats to reach across the aisle.

On Wednesday, Ocasio-Cortez tweeted, “During the Obama admin, folks thought we’d have a 60 Dem majority for a while. It lasted 4 months. Dems are burning precious time & impact negotiating w/GOP who won’t even vote for a Jan 6 commission. McConnell’s plan is to run out the clock. It’s a hustle. We need to move now.”

The New York congresswoman’s tweet comes after President Joe Biden ended talks with members of the Republican Party about an infrastructure deal.

According to NBC, Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), the leading Republican negotiator, said in a statement on Tuesday, “I spoke with the president this afternoon, and he ended our infrastructure negotiations.”

As The New York Times reported on Tuesday, “[Biden] shifted his focus to a bipartisan group of centrist senators who have been working separately on an alternative, calling three of them personally to cheer on their efforts and encourage them to work with top White House officials to hammer out a deal.”

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said, “It may well be that part of the bill that will pass will be bipartisan, and part of it will be through reconciliation,” adding, “But we’re not going to sacrifice the bigness and boldness in this bill. We will just pursue two paths, and at some point, they will join.”

Ocasio-Cortez also used her Twitter account to specifically take aim at Biden, calling out his inaction on student loan debt.

In a tweet, she said, “Additionally, the Senate blockages make Biden’s unwillingness to act on student loan debt- something he can do *without* Congress but hasn’t yet- all the more glaring. #CancelStudentDebt is 1 of the few, rare opportunities Biden has to go big w/o the Senate. He needs to take it.”
