Chuck Schumer already had enough problems on his plate.
Now Schumer may lose everything.
And that’s because Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just now drew a line that is bad news for Chuck Schumer.
Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez let loose on Schumer, Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden over West Virginia Democrat Joe Manchin pulling the plug on a nearly $5 trillion socialist spending bill by announcing his opposition.
Without Manchin’s vote the bill is dead on arrival as Democrats tried to ram it through the Senate using the reconciliation process to avoid a Republican filibuster.
This spending scheme was every socialist’s dream as it created a new cradle-to-grave welfare state as well as shackled the American economy with regulations from the Marxist Green New Deal.
With Republicans favored to win control of the House of Representatives and maybe the Senate in the 2022 midterms, Democrats in Congress saw the window closing on their best chance to turn America into a socialist nation.
In Ocasio-Cortez’s social media temper tantrum, Ocasio-Cortez blamed Pelosi, Schumer and Biden for the collapse of the socialist agenda.
Ocasio-Cortez demanded Democrat leadership find a way to pass the socialist spending bill as well as legislation opening up American elections to fraud by mandating universal mail-in balloting in every state as well as ballot harvesting while crippling the ability of states to enforce voter ID laws.
“To every member who brought up Manchin, they personally promised they had a solution & BBB would pass. It is simply not an option for Dem leaders to walk from BBB, voting rights, etc. They must find a way, just as they promised they would when we raised this inevitability,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote.
Ocasio-Cortez also noted Schumer and other top Democrats knew Manchin could eventually pull his support for the socialist spending bill and Ocasio-Cortez blamed Schumer and Pelosi for allowing a separate vote on a fake $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill that Manchin negotiated with 13 RINOs.
“People can be mad at Manchin all they want, but we knew he would do this months ago. Where we need answers from are the leaders who promised a path on BBB if BIF passed: Biden & Dem leaders. *They* chose to move BIF alone instead of w/ BBB, not Manchin. So they need to fix it,” Ocasio-Cortez added.
Ocasio-Cortez continued slamming Schumer for not succeeding in passing the socialists’ dream spending and election-rigging legislation and made it clear that failure is not an option.
“We, as always, are here to fight for this agenda. What matters most to us is that it gets done. But we cannot just shrug our shoulders and accept this as some Charlie Brown moment. Our entire democracy is on the line. So we need to get back in there & get this sh*t done. Period,” Ocasio-Cortez concluded.
One reason Chuck Schumer ignored Manchin’s objections to the $5 trillion socialist spending bill was because Schumer feared Ocasio-Cortez challenging him in a 2022 primary.
That fear led Schumer to govern from the far-left end of the Democrat Party which resulted in Joe Manchin torpedoing the socialists’ crown jewel spending bill.
And Ocasio-Cortez’s broadside against Democrat leadership – i.e., Chuck Schumer – is leading to renewed speculation that Ocasio-Cortez could run against Schumer next year.
