PLEASE CLICK HERE TO ACCESS THE ORIGINAL FULL STORY


The following article, WHOA! Ted Cruz & Ocasio-Cortez Set to Partner On Upcoming Legislation, & Minds Are Blown, was first published on Flag And Cross.

The title is no joke.

It looks like conservative Senator Ted Cruz (TX) and far-left radical Democrat Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) are set to team up.

What do you think of this…?

From Daily Wire:

On Thursday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) — a duo in Congress who could not have more polarized views on most issues — signaled support in a potential bill targeting congressmen-turned-lobbyists, AKA “the swamp.”

AOC tweeted:

If you are a member of Congress + leave, you shouldn’t be allowed to turn right around&leverage your service for a lobbyist check.

I don’t think it should be legal at ALL to become a corporate lobbyist if you’ve served in Congress.

At minimum there should be a long wait period.

Cruz’s response:

Here’s something I don’t say often: on this point, I AGREE with @AOC Indeed, I have long called for a LIFETIME BAN on former Members of Congress becoming lobbyists. The Swamp would hate it, but perhaps a chance for some bipartisan cooperation?

AOC fired back:

.@tedcruz if you’re serious about a clean bill, then I’m down.

Let’s make a deal.

If we can agree on a bill with no partisan snuck-in clauses, no poison pills, etc – just a straight, clean ban on members of Congress becoming paid lobbyists – then I’ll co-lead the bill with you.

Cruz’s retort:

You’re on.

AOC once more:

Okay, with @brianschatz + @tedcruz we’ve got at least one D-R team in the Senate to ban members becoming lobbyists, & myself w/ @chiproytx makes at least one D-R team in the House.

And that’s just in a few hours – there will surely be more from both parties to sign on.

Nice 👍🏽

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) just broke dozens of hearts around the nation by once again mocking Ocasio-Cortez.

Pelosi did it on “60 Minutes” with host, Lesley Stahl.

It was blatant. And it was obvious.

In other words, Nancy needs AOC to know who is boss.

Stahl: “So you are contending with a group in Congress: Over here on the left flank are these self-described socialists, on the right, these moderates. And you yourself said that you’re the only one who can unify everybody. And the question is can you?

Pelosi: “By and large, whatever orientation they came to Congress with, they know that we have to hold the center. That we have to go down the mainstream.

Stahl: “You have these wings– AOC, and her group on one side–.

Pelosi: “That’s like five people.

And boom goes the dynamite!

OUCH! Five whole people, huh?

You just know that has to hurt Ocasio-Cortez’s feelings.

WATCH:

Pelosi has already rained on Alexandria’s parade when it comes to her “Green New Deal.”

She recently did it again.

AOC may have a large presence on Twitter, but Nancy couldn’t care less. Here’s why…

“While there are people who have a large number of Twitter followers, what’s important is that we have large numbers of votes on the floor of the House,” ⁦@SpeakerPelosi⁩ told me.

Even CNN took notice:
