Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says she’ll vote against stimulus bill without changes

A draft of the bill reportedly includes new funding for hospitals, coronavirus testing and a small business loan program, but omitted key progressive priorities. Left-leaning members of Congress want more aid to cities and states, relief for renters, universal vote-by-mail and aid to undocumented immigrants.

So she's going to block it, so she and other Democrats can push for their own personal pet projects and social Justice nonsense that no cares about.

She mainly wants the "Vote by Mail" approved to get the illegal Democrat Votes from the dead people (which has nothing to do with Corona Virus in the first place).

All good except aid for undocumented. Apart from free medical for covid for everyone only people living legally here should get financial aid. I'm an immigrant legally since 1985. Paid aloooot of taxes, spent thousands on my permanent resident, and my wife. Others jumped the fence free

She should of blocked the first bill, along with Sanders, Omar, Talib, etc. Instead they voted for it and faced massive push back. Progressives have already wrote them all off as sell outs and do not trust them. This is a publicity stunt and the movement is scattered.

Finally for christs sake some progressives are taking a stand against this BS. Vote by mail should be a no brainer.

It is fairly impressive watching politicians hold up an emergency bill to overtly shove pork into it. Usually they just save that nonsense for bills that are not such a blatant focus of the public.

California is putting together a panel of "Social Justice Warriors" (Newsom's choice of words) to distribute billions based upon a desire to rectify social injustice. They've said that their goal is to help women, POC (other than one particular color) and LGBTPQ. "Never let a crisis go to waste".

Once again Dems attempting to block legislation to help the people for their agenda, I notice the orange man bad brigade aren’t criticising the Dems atm, just like they didn’t last time pelosi held up the bill and tried to push that 1400 page piece of garbage

I despise this woman. She complains about everything and none of her proposed solutions are fair or practical. A really nasty piece of work imo.

So let me get this straight, she is going to vote against a bill that would help: hospitals, small business and give more money to u.s. citizens. She has to be from another planet. 🤡🌎

Undocumented workers should get NOTHING! Now, she wants to reward those here in the states illegally?! More monies need to be allocated to Americans. $1,200.00 offered little relief!

Dems continuing to screw over the working people and small businesses that they claim to care so much about. Partisan bs in this situation is disgusting. Get the money to the people and businesses asap. Figure out further action as need arises. Do your fn job

All these conservatives in the comments not understanding that she is voting against it not because it helps but because it doesn't help enough. If you put those things in a different bill, Republicans will claim they've already done what needs to be done. She is not letting people get away with not doing enough. You can argue against whether she's right or not, but let's try to argue in good faith.

I agree with a vote by mail, but it should be run like it is in Wisconsin. You show ID through the WI voting website, you get your ballot and have a witness to the act of fill out out the ballot (not reading the ballot of course.)
