Things are getting ugly!
In a shocking turn of event, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez attacked President Biden over his $1.75 trillion social-spending plan which was supposed to cost $3.4 trillion and then demanded Biden to step up and CANCEL student debt.
The spending price tag was reduced to $1.75 trillion after Senator Joe Manchin stood firm against the Democratic party and refused to vote “yes” on it because it was too expensive.
According to Business Insider, Ocasio-Cortez took to social media and attacked Biden’s reduced Build Back Better plan and said, “I think given how much BBB has been slashed there is more opportunity than ever to bring the heat on Biden to cancel student loans. He doesn’t need Manchin’s permission for that and now that his agenda is thinly sliced he needs to step up his executive action game and show his commitment to deliver for people.”

It appears that Ocasio-Cortez is now openly taunting Biden and making him look weak for reducing the cost of the Build Back Better plan and is now urging other progressive Democrats to call for Biden to forgive billions if not more in national student debt.
