Ocasio-Cortez, Cruz strike pact to work together on lobbying legislation

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Ted Cruz found common ground on Twitter Thursday in vowing to impose restrictions on former members of Congress who become lobbyists. ’Let’s make a deal’, said Ocasio-Cortez responding to a tweet from the Texas Republican in which he said he agreed with her.

If they do this, and it's got no BS loopholes, it will be a good start to fixing the lobbying problem. I hope.

Almost all of Ted Cruz' campaign miney comes from lobbyists, so I hope the details of the bill are heavily scrutinised.

I'm somewhat skeptical of this (though on its face I like it). Remember that time Cortez made a bill about climate change which turned out to be more about social justice? With Ted Cruz involved...still at least elected representatives are TRYING to work together.

Is the deal of a recent time period and perhaps a specific color? Because that deal was hilarious the first time, can't wait to see the sequel. Yes, I know that this deal is very different.

I got to admit, if Cruz and AOC pull this off, public support for it might just let AOC win an actual primary... That said, I wish them the best of luck.
