Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) went after Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) over Rep. Deb Haaland’s confirmation to be Biden’s Interior secretary.
Manchin is the most powerful man in DC and everyone knows it. He will not be pushed and bullied into doing something he believes to be wrong or not in the best interest of his state or the country.

In other words, he is resistant to the big changes some Dems want to force through. That has caused a few of them to issue him some subtle warning. Manchin has also said he would sink at least one of Biden’s picks and the rumor is he may sink Deb Haaland too.
So AOC is putting Joe on notice and that one act she moves Manchin closer to Mitch McConnell – look if Joe wants even more power he could switch to the GOP and it seems AOC is the only one unaware of this simple mathematical calculation.
“Jeff Sessions was so openly racist that even Reagan couldn’t appoint him,” AOC said.
“Manchin voted to confirm him. Sessions then targeted immigrant children for wide-scale human rights abuses w/ family separation.”

“Yet the 1st Native woman to be Cabinet Sec is where Manchin finds unease? Deb Haaland is a profound public servant and champion for working families. Her appointment as Sec of the Interior would be historic, and her leadership holds the promise of progress for our country. Call your Senator to support her confirmation.”
