NEW... Pelosi announces the House will pass the senate bill. Game over. pic.twitter.com/Jy7WYLp7PF— Jake Sherman (@JakeSherman) June 27, 2019
"Why aren't we doing a better job to protect the dignity and worth of the children, the children, the children?"
Good question. This is not the answer:
Under no circumstances should the House vote for a McConnell-only bill w/ no negotiation with Democrats. Hell no.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) June 27, 2019
That’s an abdication of power we should refuse to accept. They will keep hurting kids if we do.
0 negotiation with the House. We offered crucial amendments to protect children and families - none are even being considered.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) June 27, 2019
A minority is different than a majority. And while the Senate has to deal with its lack of power there, a House majority should have a seat @ the table.
We have time. We can stay in town. We can at LEAST add some amendments to this Senate bill. But to pass it completely unamended with no House input? That seems a bridge too far.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) June 27, 2019
*And AOC is insisting on arguing the political win/loss. She never addresses the Speaker's point about the children. Which says something about her argument, and something about why she's arguing it. It's not a good look.
