She’s attacking her own people.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently attacked the New York Democrats for sending a letter to the House stating that they will “‘vote to oppose‘ any tax legislation without a full repeal of State and Local Tax (SALT) Cap deductions.”
Ocasio-Cortez spoke with a reporter and said:
I don’t think we should be holding the infrastructure package hostage for a 100% repeal of SALT, especially in the case of a full repeal. Personally, I can’t stress how much that I believe that is a giveaway to the rich. I think that it’s one thing to talk about the actual cap because there are absolutely communities that are really feeling this in New York City, California, etc.
When the letter was given to the House, 17 out of the 19 Democrats signed it with Ocasio-Cortez and Rep. Kathleen Rice missing from the signatures.
