On Friday night, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (D-N.Y.) came to social media for ‘Cooking Q&A’ to give answers to questions and inform her followers on what is going on with Coronavirus relief, an exercise which Alexandria practiced since starting an office in 2019.
She has made her session with followers, as a time to speak to her young base in the way political officials in office have never completed in the past.
But she usually considered as a socialist by her critics and used the chance to raise her voice against Republicans who are not wishing communities to again shutdown as the virus cases spreading with a high rate in various areas across the nation.
People opposing shutdown and people not wearing masks are same
On Friday night, Alexandria described that here is what is ironic to her, all the Republicans, all the people who were opposing shutdown, were the same Americans who were not covering their faces with masks, who focused them to close in the first place. She continued that shutdowns aren’t an inevitability, and it is not something that they want to do. She said that it is not something that anyone wants to do.
She pointed at those specific points that most of the American people can relate with, especially in the holiday phase, but she disagreed with Republicans upset about the novel lockdowns emerging in regions such as southern California and telling Americans “you better have been putting masks on your face all damn year” if you are going to complain about it.
Alexandria said that no one wants closure but the same American people who are currently opposing shutdown, were the same people who were not wearing face masks, who forced caseloads to be very high that they had to close regions to start with. She added that if you are opposing lockdowns, you should better be wearing face masks throughout the year, because do not come to her and say you are opposing shutdown as you are spreading Coronavirus across the regions.
Ocasio Cortez further explained that she wasn’t just referring to the people in her frustration, but also elected officials who were vocal in opposition to closures.
Sen. Bernie Sanders and Sen. Josh Hawley have collaborated in a struggle to get Congress to pass another round of incentive measure before the Congressional Christmas break.
On Friday night, Alexandria described that as elected administrators, their duty is to be started with modeling responsible behavior. She added that she couldn’t ask you to wear a face mask if she is not wearing it, and she can’t ask you to get COVID-19 vaccine she is not willing to get a vaccine shot.
