Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) tore into Senator Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) for threatening to block major infrastructure legislation unless the House passes her severely watered-down version first.

Once a progressive Democrat who was elected to office because of her stance on childcare, raising the minimum wage, and healthcare, Sinema has since become a Republican puppet who cares more about her corporate donors than she does about her constituents.

To that end, she literally worked with Republicans, who have made it no secret that they are trying to sabotage President Joe Biden and the Democratic legislative agenda, to craft a weak infrastructure bill under the guise of “bipartisanship” rather than help her own party pass an infrastructure bill of substance. In a deal made with the White House, Sinema had agreed that both versions would be voted on together. But now Sinema is demanding passage of her bill or she will move to block the other.

Her attempt to hold the nation hostage to get her way did not impress AOC, who ripped her a new one for acting like an entitled Karen.

Sinema is no longer fit to serve her state in the Senate. She is standing in the way of legislation that would help the very people who voted for her. She’s a waste of space in Congress and in the Democratic Party. It’s because of “Democrats” like her that nothing good gets done for this country.
