Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) has some concerns about the Stimulus Pkg that has already passed the Senate.
During an interview on CNN Wednesday, AOC expressed her frustration with reports of the stimulus deal, suggesting it’s too tilted towards corporations.
She is not ruling out asking for a recorded vote, which would force lawmakers to return to Washington and vote in-person, something that most members of Congress are eager to avoid amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Ocasio-Cortez said she hadn’t seen the final bill text yet, “but I’m open” to asking for a recorded vote “if necessary.”
And even though that may be unpopular, that’s a risk she’s willing to take.
“With the health risks of travel, there is no easy choice here. But essential workers are showing up and putting their health at risk every day, and if the final text of a bill is set up to hurt them, it may be something we have to do.”
