Far-left congresswoman Alexandria-Ocasio Cortez had something of a meltdown soon after the news of Senator Joe Manchin’s decision to vote ‘no’ on the proposed ‘Build Back Better’ legislation broke on Sunday.

As The Daily Wire reports:


Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) slammed Democrat leadership after Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) announced that he could not vote for President Joe Biden’s Build Back Better Act.

“People can be mad at Manchin all they want, but we knew he would do this months ago,” she said. “Where we need answers from are the leaders who promised a path on [Build Back Better] if [the Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework] passed: Biden & Dem leaders. *They* chose to move BIF alone instead of w/ BBB, not Manchin. So they need to fix it.”

Manchin’s announcement dooms Democrats’ chances of passing the multi-trillion social spending bill, which experts say will add to the national debt, despite the Biden administration’s repeated claim that it would cost nothing.

“I cannot vote to continue with this piece of legislation. I just can’t. I’ve tried everything humanly possible. I can’t get there,” Manchin told Fox News anchor Bret Baier Sunday morning. “This is a no on this legislation. I have tried everything I know to do. And the president has worked diligently. He’s been wonderful to work with. He knows I’ve had concerns and the problems I’ve had and, you know, the thing that we should all be directing our attention towards, the variant, a COVID that we have coming back at us in so many different aspects in different ways, it’s affecting our lives again.”

AOC’s lament mirrored the attitude of many Democrats, who view Manchin’s decision to torpedo what would have been the Biden’s Administration’s signature legislative accomplishment as an act of political treason.

These idiots in the Squad fail to realize if the Infrastructure bill and BBB was combined, like they wanted, the combined bill would have never passed. They should be happy with what they got. I’m not.
