Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continues to create headache after headache for the left.

It’s becoming a major issue.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez spoke this sentence that every Democrat wishes she never did

As Black Eye Politics reports:

The radical left think that they should be the ones guiding the Democratic Party.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) slammed Democrat leadership due to the fact that Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) stated that he won’t be voting for Build Back Better.

“People can be mad at Manchin all they want, but we knew he would do this months ago,” she said. “Where we need answers from are the leaders who promised a path on [Build Back Better] if [the Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework] passed: Biden & Dem leaders. *They* chose to move BIF alone instead of w/ BBB, not Manchin. So they need to fix it.”

Ocasio-Cortez also blasted the entire Senate on an interview with MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Monday claiming that it’s an “old boys’ club.”

“It’s a farce in terms of, you know, plain democracy, because I represent more — or just, just as many, or more people than Joe Manchin does, perhaps more​,” she said.

West Virginia’s population is 1.79 million, while New York’s 14th Congressional District, which encompasses parts of the Bronx and Queens, is comprised of just about 750,000 people.​

The majority of West Virginians “strongly oppose” the Build Back Better bill.

But Ocasio-Cortez doesn’t seem to understand the dedicated checks and balances of the American government and that the Senate exists to keep less-populated states from being steamrolled.

Ocasio-Cortez also doesn’t understand that the Senate’s legislative filibuster is a force for good since it makes sure that the bills being passed have a broad support and stop a small majority from making drastic changes to the American government.

But Ocasio-Cortez wants the Democrats’ slim majority to make radical changes and is whining that it won’t happen.

“God forbid they might have to actually show up and stand or sit and actually have to talk and actually live out the threat of their filibuster,”​ she said. “It is unconscionable the way the Senate operates. It’s fundamentally undemocratic.

“What we really need to do is crack down on the Senate, which operates like an old boys’ club that has a couple of gals in it that have managed to break through,” Ocasio-Cortez went on.

“We need to actually institute some — we need to implement some institutional discipline​,” the lawmaker added before further accusing Manchin of stringing the White House and congressional Democrats along by negotiating with them before declaring his opposition to the bill on “Fox News Sunday.”

“I think what Senator Manchin did yesterday represents such an egregious breach of the trust of the president,” Ocasio-Cortez​ said.​
