Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is under fire for allegedly reviewing legislation based on the ethnicity of who is supporting it.
From Fox News:
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the influential New York Democrat, received some backlash over a tweet that showed profile photos of the bipartisan group of senators behind the infrastructure bill that advanced on Wednesday.
Both Democrats and Republicans praised the bill’s momentum. President Biden himself called the day “historic.”
But progressives have voiced their opposition and accuse Democrats of not going far enough to advance the agenda. The Hill pointed out that Ocasio-Cortez and Rep. Cori Bush, D-Mo., both criticized the lack of diversity in the group of bipartisan senators. Bush posted, “Is this the Bipartisan Infrastructure Group or the audience at a Kid Rock concert?”

This from AOC, by the way, is not an argument. It is pure ad hominem that says noting about the bill or its merits.
A healthy culture would repudiate her for judging legislation solely by the skin color of the people supporting it. https://t.co/vJO0toah2A
