(ReclaimingAmerica.net) – Just days after a seemingly mentally disturbed young man set out to assassinate United States Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) bragged about blocking legislation that would provide additional security protection for the Supreme Court.
According to National Review, “Ocasio-Cortez posted a video to her Instagram Stories on Thursday in which she claims to walk to the floor of the House of Representatives to object to unanimous consent for legislation, Newsweek reported.
“The progressive “Squad” member said in the video that Thursday was a “fly out day” when many members of Congress left Washington, D.C., for their home districts.”
Here’s precisely how AOC bragged about stopping the legislation on her Instabgram:
“Fly out days are also days of maximum hijinks from party leadership, both Democratic and Republican Party leadership.
“I wake up this morning and I start to hear murmurs that there is going to be an attempt to pass the Supreme Court Supplemental Protection Bill the day after gun safety legislation for schools and kids and people is stalled.
“Oh, so we can pass protections for us and here easily, right? But we can’t pass protections for everyday people? I think not.” [emphasis added]
Time will tell if the Supreme Court eventually gets the additional protection many security experts believe it needs — especially in light of the recent attempt on the life of Justice Kavanaugh — but in the meantime, AOC seems quite proud of herself for stopping the new security measures for now.
