Ocasio-Cortez Backstabs Her Supporters
A group known as the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) is now attacking both Democrat Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Cori Bush, who are members of The Squad, after they voted to enforce the contract which ended the railroad strike.
Apparently the socialists are mad because the two of the biggest socialists in Congress did something they didn’t like.
According to Fox, the DSA called out President Biden, AOC and Cori Bush saying, “Biden and his administration sold out workers when they imposed this terrible contract on railroad workers through the antiquated Railway Labor Act (RLA). We disagree and are disappointed with the decision of DSA members Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rep. Cori Bush to needlessly vote to enforce the TA [tentative agreement].”
As you may already know, President Biden recently signed into law new legislation which averted a massive railroad strike.
Democrat Rep. Rashida Tlaib was the only member of the DSA who voted against the bill.
As the result the DSA stated, “We are proud of DSA member Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s vote against the TA, and for sick days. Any vote by Congress to impose a bad contract on workers sides with the boss, and contradicts democratic socialist values.”
They later added, “The representatives have turned their backs on the movement that brought them to office. The black mark they have left on the name of socialism will be a liability for American socialists well into the future.”
