Ocasio-Cortez is one of several progressive 民主党 to target Sinema and Sen. ジョー・マンチン, D-W.Va。, for not getting in line with items like the Build Back Better bill, the scrapping of the filibuster, もっと. Ocasio-Cortez fit several accusations into her latest diatribe against Sinema, including how the latter is an “obstacle to the right to vote,” and forgetting the will of Arizona voters.
“She has proven herself an obstacle to the right to vote in the United States,” 彼女は言った “The 11th Hour.” “She is not an ally on civil rights. It is becoming a precipice and rather contributing to the threat that we have in stabilizing our democracy. She is not standing up to corporate interests; 実際には, she is a profound ally to them. And I believe that, ええと, she is not doing what voters in Arizona sent her to do.”
Ocasio-Cortez also found バイデン大統領 guilty in the slow walking of progressive priorities, accusing him of “dragging his feet” on the filibuster. She also hit Biden for believing the relationships he’d cultivated with Sinema and Manchin would help get them on board, which she called naive.
“I believe that the president was genuine and authentic in his assessment in believing that his decades in the United States Senate and his relationships would be able to bring Manchin and perhaps Sinema along … He was mistaken in that assessment,” 彼女は言いました.
