AOC takes cheap shot at Ted Cruz while vowing to work alongside the Senator

Their cause is noble, but AOC’s verbiage isn’t.

In stunning display of bipartisanship, freshman democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and republican Senator Ted Cruz have begun working toward a bill that would disallow congressional legislators from taking high paying jobs as Washington lobbyists once there civil duty is done.

The cause is valid and noble one.  Lobbyists and the corporations that they work for have singlehandedly transformed our public servants into a ruling class mob whose dedication to the American people is far too often usurped by the quest for wealth.  This has led to countless pieces of legislation that are aimed at lessening the regulatory requirements for these conglomerates, almost always to the detriment of We The People.

And while many were excited about the possibilities of a Cruz-AOC led fight against the practice, the young Congresswoman can’t help but insult the Texas Senator on her way to a compromise.

In an interview with The Young Turks, Ocasio-Cortez had the following to say:

“I think it really shows what the true spirit of not being partisan is. And that bipartisanship doesn’t mean let’s come together to go to war and lower taxes on the rich. But bipartisanship means, OK, I will swallow all of my distaste in this situation. Because we have found a common interest.”

AOC has been a bit of a wild-child in Congress during her fist term, as she brings millennial-based social media maneuvers into Washington DC.

Her “distaste” for Cruz notwithstanding, the American people are still hopeful that the two can come together in order to rectify one of the most egregious abuses of power our nation has ever seen.
