Elected President Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (DN.Y) explained what she called an "obscure political maneuver" from minority leader in the House, Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), In a tweet who challenged the future Speaker of the House.
Ocasio-Cortez tweeted against "paygo" It is a policy to keep government spending far too much by instituting income increases to offset any new spending, or "pay as you go."
Ocasio-Cortez agrees with his congressional colleague, Ro Khanna (D-Calif.), Who tweeted against the policy that Pelosi was supporting in order to contain members of his own party.
"Tomorrow I will also be voting no on the rules package, which is trying to slip into #PAYGO." PAYGO is not just a bad economy, like @RoKhanna she explains, she tweeted. It is also a dark political maneuver designed to impede progress in health care + other leg. "
"We should not be embarrassed from the beginning," Ocasio-Cortez concluded.
She added a link to Khanna's objection.
"I will be voting NO on the rule pack with #PayGo – it's a terrible economy," Khanna tweeted.
"The austere was wrong about the Great Recession and the Great Depression," he added. "At one point, politicians must learn from their mistakes and read economic history."
The anti-paygo faction also received broad support from Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) In a tweet from Wednesday.
"At a time when climate change is threatening our planet, when our infrastructure collapses and 30 million people do not have health insurance, I fear that the concept of PAYGO makes it more difficult for Congress to cope with the many crises faced by our working families, "he said in the social media missive.
Ocasio-Cortez, who identifies herself as a socialist democrat, has been a thorn in the foot of the democratic establishment since she knocked out the political world by beating a Democratic party leader for a US seat in New York.
Other members of the Democratic Party have criticized the up-and-coming politician, including outgoing Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill, who warned Democrats have become attached to a "brilliant and brilliant new object".
"I hope that she also realizes that parts of the country that reject the Democratic Party," McCaskill said. m said, "like many voters of the white working class, need to know how their work will be respected, the dignity of their work and how we can stick to the problems for which we can actually accomplish something".
