Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY., was quick to blast the short timeframe, arguing lawmakers “have not read this bill.”
“It’s over 5000 pages, arrived at 2pm today, and we are told to expect a vote on it in 2 hours,” she tweeted. “This isn’t governance. It’s hostage-taking.”…
“Members are reeling right now because they don’t have time to consult with their communities,” she added.
Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, took to Twitter to say that Ocasio-Cortez “is right.”
