Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez-Stalin and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi have finally set aside their differences in an effort to exempt illegal aliens from having to follow the nation’s gun laws.
From The Daily Caller:
Despite sparring over the best way to combat climate change, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and freshman Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez appear to be working together on what really matters: threatening members of their own party who dare to cross party lines on key votes.
According to Politico the two are prepared to go to war — on two fronts — with Democrats who might be tempted to vote with the GOP on tougher issues.
Pelosi reportedly informed her party that members showing “courage” in such votes would be given a higher priority when it came time for them to run for re-election in 2020. The underlying threat was implicit in what she didn’t say: that those who lacked such “courage” might be left to fend for themselves.
“This is not a day at the beach,” the veteran Speaker reportedly told her caucus. “This is the Congress of the United States.”
Politico added that Ocasio-Cortez was prepared to do her part as well, citing sources who said she planned to “alert progressive activists when Democrats are voting with the GOP on these motions.” …
Apparently, this was all in response to a Democrat-sponsored bill that sought to extend universal background checks to anyone buying a gun.
When Republicans added an amendment to the bill that would require ICE to be notified if an illegal immigrant tried to purchase a gun and failed a background check, AOC and Pelosi balked at the possibility that illegals would have to follow ANY OF OUR LAWS.
So the two ladies threatened their fellow Democrats not to vote for the amendment.
But the tactic didn’t work.
26 of their fellow Democrats voted for the amendment, which passed.
You can’t make this stuff up, folks!
