Randy DeSoto for the Western Journal reports, Incoming congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York announced she will vote against bylaws to govern the 116th Congress that are supported by House Speaker-apparent Nancy Pelosi, citing her objection to the “pay as you go” budgetary rule included in the package.
Tomorrow I will also vote No on the rules package, which is trying to slip in #PAYGO.
PAYGO isn’t only bad economics, as @RoKhanna explains; it’s also a dark political maneuver designed to hamstring progress on healthcare+other leg.
We shouldn’t hinder ourselves from the start. t.co/WW3UaBs7vh
