Rep.Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the gift that keeps on giving like Herpes that never goes away and is super annoying. Her latest contribution to high hilarity comes in demanding that U.S. Senator Kyrsten Sinema be primaried over her refusal to fling the filibuster into the round file over Roe v. Wade’s possible overturn.
We could protect Roe tomorrow, but Sinema refuses to act on the filibuster. Until that changes she can take a seat talking about “women’s access to health care.”
Hold everyone contributing to this disaster accountable, GOP & Dem obstructionists included. She should be primaried. https://t.co/NWLsixsiNH

Maybe AOC is upset that most men Sinema would rather date Sinema than they would her.
The irony of Alanis Morissette-level is that Sinema is pro-choice, but not an ally to Republican efforts to make abortion a state-level matter. AOC is furious at Sinema for refusing to condemn a parliamentary procedure that her party will use if it regains Republican control in November.
This matter will be heard only by the Supreme Court, not Congress. Even if the current Congress attempted to push through a bill legalizing abortion at the federal level, how delusional must AOC & co. be to believe enough red district or state Democrats facing re-election this fall would severely risk their political future by supporting the bill?
They are still around.
Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and other left-leaning members of the “Squad” are urging fellow Congresswomen to pass a bill that codifies Roe v. Wade and reestablish a federal right to abortion. Since Democrats have a slim majority, some of them state that they must abolish the filibuster to make sure such a bill can go through.
Yeah, good luck with that guys!
Democrats are in dog panic behavior, they know they are up the shit creek without a paddle. They’ve seen the polls. They know Biden is increasingly senile and rushing headfirst into 25th Amendment poster boy territory. They know the economy is a rudderless floating shipwreck waiting to hit the last reef. And don’t ask about foreign policy unless you want to hear about citizens dying in Ukrainian streets and Chinese forced labor camps.
The GOP should not mess it up too badly, and given the issues, we’re discussing are always an issue, the Democrats will be in serious trouble. AOC Kyrsten Sinema won’t be held responsible if a pro-baby murder…er, abortion bill doesn’t pass Congress before the next one.
