New York Democrat Lawmaker Bashes AOC For Being ‘Absent’


2,538 views

It appears there’s drama brewing amongst Democrat lawmakers in New York.

A New York Democratic state lawmaker blasted U.S. Rep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for being not present in her home district of New York.

The riff started when a medical student on Twitter named Daniel called out AOC for refusing to meet up with health experts to discuss a new health care plan.

AOC’s office reportedly told Daniel “we aren’t doing healthcare right now”.

In response to Daniel’s denial, New York Senator Jessica Ramos tweeted out “Maybe if you spent more time in your office and with your team, you’d know what goes on. Just saying it would be nice if you breathed our air”.

Fox News shared these details:

A liberal New York state lawmaker ripped fellow progressive U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., on Twitter Sunday for being “absent” in her home district, while a medical student also lambasted the congresswoman “squad” member for her “performative” display at a recent Supreme Court protest.

The public online spat started last week when a Twitter user named Daniel, who identifies as a medical student and a health activist under the handle @jai_lies, called out Ocasio-Cortez’s office for purportedly canceling a meeting with health policy activists wanting to discuss a British-style socialized medical plan.

The medical student wrote in a July 21 tweet that “a couple of the most highly respected health policy academics recenly [sic] set up a meeting with AOC’s office to discuss NHS style healthcare reform. They were told bluntly by AOC’s staff, ‘we’re not doing healthcare right now.’”

That is when state Sen. Jessica Ramos, whose Queens district overlaps with Ocasio-Cortez, chimed in.

“Maybe if you spent more time in your office and with your team you’d know what goes on. Just saying it would be nice if you breathed our air,” Ramos, a Democrat, responded, making an apparent reference to Ocasio-Cortez’ campaign video. “So, as an employer, what happens with the staffer who said this?”

Democrat state Sen. Jessica Ramos railed at Ocasio-Cortez on Twitter Sunday afternoon for allegedly never being “present in the community” that she represents, The Daily Wire reported:

The remarks from Ramos, Chair of the New York Senate Committee on Labor, came in response to an exchange that Ocasio-Cortez had online regarding healthcare.

“A couple of the most highly respected health policy academics recently set up a meeting with AOC’s office to discuss NHS-style healthcare reform,” a tweet from a random Twitter account said. “They were told bluntly by AOC’s staff, ‘we’re not doing healthcare right now.’”

The account added: “[S]o while she’s doing performative resistance art for the camera she’s ‘not doing healthcare right now.’ We are in the middle of two pandemics & people are still dying because they lack healthcare. this is not fighting.”

“I’m really sorry to hear that this happened. It’s not representative of me nor my values,” Ocasio-Cortez responded. “If you can connect with details I’d appreciate it. I’ll follow so DMs will be open.”

Ramos then wrote directly to Ocasio-Cortez: “Maybe if you spent more time in your office and with your team you’d know what goes on.”
