Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez faced a growing backlash on social media Thursday after she bizarrely dismissed a group of bipartisan negotiators working on an Infrastructure bill because they lacked “members of color.”
“A lot of times, ‘bipartisan agreements’ are just as defined by who people in power agree to exclude than include,” posted AOC.
“Good luck tanking your own party’s investment on childcare, climate action, and infrastructure while presuming you’ll survive a 3 vote House margin – especially after choosing to exclude members of color from negotiations and calling that a ‘bipartisan accomplishment,’” she wrote to Sen. Kyrsten Sinema.
This from AOC, by the way, is not an argument. It is pure ad hominem that says noting about the bill or its merits.
A healthy culture would repudiate her for judging legislation solely by the skin color of the people supporting it. https://t.co/vJO0toah2A

A healthy culture would repudiate her for judging legislation solely by the skin color of the people supporting it.”
“The Senate voted Wednesday night to begin work on a nearly $1 trillion national infrastructure plan, acting with sudden speed after weeks of fits and starts once the White House and a bipartisan group of senators agreed on major provisions of the package that’s key to Biden’s agenda,” reports Fox News.
