Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez alluded to a morbid reality while arguing against Democratic senators negotiating with Republicans: Democratic senators are old, and Republicans could suddenly take back the Senate majority if one dies.
In a tweet on Wednesday, the New York Democratic representative argued that Democratic senators should put less focus on trying to cut a deal with Republicans on an infrastructure bill or other measures and instead push through those items through the rarely used reconciliation process, which lets Democrats bypass the 60-vote threshold to overcome a filibuster. That process allowed the evenly divided Democratic-controlled Senate to push the American Rescue Plan earlier this year.
The article goes on to state the following:
Ocasio-Cortez said that Democrats are “burning precious time & impact negotiating w/GOP” and that “McConnell’s plan is to run out the clock.”
The Democrat Socialist warned in her tweet, “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 Washington Examiner noted that Ocasio-Cortez is referring to the late Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Ted Kennedy, who died unexpectedly during the period she spoke of. At the time Kennedy’s death, Ocasio-Cortez was in college and an intern for Kennedy’s office.
