Rep. Ocasio-Cortez continued to call-out her Congressional colleagues who support the Coronavirus stimulus bill this week; saying it’s “not acceptable” to vote for the package and then have lawmakers “peace out for another month.”
“Incrementalism is not helpful in this moment. It’s not helpful. We got a nickel; we got a dime in a trillion-dollar bill… It’s not acceptable. Not in my community,” ranted AOC.
