Sigh. AOC has opened her big trap again. This will be fun.
Democrat Senator Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona refused to kill the filibuster after Politico published a leaked Supreme Court decision that could end of Roe v. Wade, and Democrat Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez-Cortez of New York is having a hissy fit over it.
Ocasio-Cortez hilariously said Sinema is an “obstructionist.”
I guess that’s the word you use for someone who doesn’t let you get your way.
Read her whining here:
We could protect Roe tomorrow, but Sinema refuses to act on the filibuster. Until that changes she can take a seat talking about “women’s access to health care.”
Hold everyone contributing to this disaster accountable, GOP & Dem obstructionists included. She should be primaried. https://t.co/NWLsixsiNH

Sinema followed with a statement condemning the leaked Supreme Court decision, but refused to shift her stance on killing the filibuster.
“Protections in the Senate safeguarding against the erosion of women’s access to health care have been used half-a-dozen times in the past ten years, and are more important now than ever,” she said.
“Throughout my time in Congress, I’ve always supported women’s access to health care, I’m a cosponsor of the Women’s Health Protection Act, and I’ll continue working with anyone to protect women’s ability to make decisions about their futures,” she added.
AOC continues to put on her crazy lipstick and fight, but she’s not budging Sinema.
AOC also took aim at Senator Joe “Macho Manchin.” You can read about that here.
