Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez —where are you?

While Democratic Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is getting fake handcuffed in front of the Supreme Court, one liberal New York State lawmaker is wondering why she’s never in her NYC office.

From Fox News:

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.’”

“So, while she’s doing performative resistance art for the camera’s [sic] she’s ‘not doing healthcare right now,” he added, referring to Ocasio-Cortez recently being accused of pretending to be handcuffed while police escorted her away from a pro-abortion protest at the Supreme Court in Washington, D.C. “We are in the middle of two pandemics & people are still dying because they lack healthcare. this is not fighting.”

That’s when fello liberal lawmaker State Sen. Jessica Ramons chimed in, blasting AOC for never being around.

“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. So, as an employer, what happens with the staffer who said this?”

“Ramos, who is endorsed by the Working Families Party, continued her criticism of Ocasio-Cortez on Sunday, even as other users bemoaned that she took the spat public,” Fox News reports.

“Our district offices are on the same floor in the same building. She’s barely ever present in the community. It’s an indisputable fact,” the state senator noted.
