Playing into Democrats long standing practice of “if you can’t beat ‘em…cheat,” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez reveled to Politico how she plans to circumvent the legislative process to pursue climate, immigration and gun control reform.
The freshman congresswoman shared that, “there’s more than one way to skin a cat, and not everything has to be done through legislation explicitly.” She also added, “we can also use the tools that we have here to pressure change in other ways as well.”
Politico points out that AOC seems to be referring to her and other Democratic lawmakers attempting to use social media to “shame” America and its financial institutions “into taking a stand on some of the country’s most divisive issues.”
What’s worse is that the move seems to be showing some results after JPMorgan and Wells Fargo severed all ties with prison institutions after being put under pressure.
Conservatives will need to be on the look out for similar attacks.
