War in the Democrats: AOC Readily Against her own Party Decision


Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., is taking aim at a fellow Democrat’s opposition to scrapping the Senate’s legislative filibuster, which the GOP is using to stymie President Joe Biden and congressional Democrats from passing much of their agenda.

Ocasio-Cortez, the two-term congresswoman from New York City and the best known of the group of diverse and progressive House lawmakers known as "The Squad," teed off Sunday against Sen. Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona, who along with fellow moderate Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia are opposed to the push by lawmakers from the left of their party the scrap the filibuster.

Ocasio-Cortez, in an interview on NBC News’ "Meet the Press," fired back at Sinema, who wrote last week in an opinion piece in the Washington Post that if the filibuster was nixed, there would be "repeated radical reversals in federal policy, cementing uncertainty, deepening divisions and further eroding Americans’ confidence in our government."
