AOC says she will vote NO on the $550billion infrastructure bill unless she gets 'new information' after months of saying Biden's $3.5T spending spree should be passed first

Progressive Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said on Tuesday she will vote no on a bipartisan $550 billion infrastructure bill that's crucial to President Joe Biden's ambitious Build Back Better agenda 'unless I get some new information.'

The Squad member indicated to reporters that she's unhappy with Speaker Nancy Pelosi's decision to go ahead with a vote on the legislation while a Democrat-backed $3.5 trillion measure is being stalled by objections from moderates.

She's now putting pressure on Pelosi to prioritize the larger bill instead.

Dingbat says she will hold her breath and turn blue unless Nancy gives her whatever she wants.

She’s holding out for more money. In the end she’ll be a good RAT and vote with Demented Joe.

The Justice (”Just Us”) Democrats are driving the mainstream Democrats nuts. (primarily Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, Cori Bush, AOC)

My schadenfreude is all tingly!

There are a lot of dingbats in the congress. AOC has a lots of vacuous colleagues.

Would $550 billion work for us? Put the issue away until ‘23?

That’s how the whole corrupt system works (or rather doesn’t work).

“Progressive Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez”

I am SO sick of people using that term “progressive”. BS Progressive, she’s COMMUNIST! There is absolutely NOTHING these people do in the name of “progress” but destroy and harm.

Infrastructure is fine, as long as it is not used to pay for childcare, pre-school, pre-K, head-start, Covid scams, unemployment benefits, etc.

Normal people think of infrastructure as roads, bridges, power lines. The Dems have redefined infrastructure to payback the SEIU and teachers unions. The SEIU manages the Democrat slave plantation.

Joe Manchin knows the game. It still amazes me how many here still hang on his every word and body twitch as if he’d one day vote in America’s best interest.

She’s holding out for insurance that she won’t get kicked to the curb after she opposed Iron Dome funding.

“$550 billion infrastructure bill” won’t even fix 20 states’ road/bridge/ RR problems, let alone all 50 states.

100% correct. Manchin’s votes are always for sale. He’s just a little more savvy than his colleagues and holds out for the highest price he can get. He’s got quite a good scam going for him.

Wasn’t it $1.2T for months? What gives?
