Nobody expected this.

In a surprising turn of events, Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is agreeing with Republican Senator Marco Rubio regarding the railroad workers strike which could cause massive supply chain disruptions if a solution is not reached.

According to Fox, Ocasio-Cortez simply responded, “a rarity” to a tweet Rubio posted about objecting to a deal that would not be in the absolute best interests for the railroad workers.

Rubio explained, “The railways and workers should go back and negotiate a deal that the workers, not just the union bosses, will accept. I will not vote to impose a deal that doesn’t have the support of the rail workers.”

Ocasio-Cortez then retweeted the message and wrote, “Glad we are on the same page [regarding] railworkers’ paid sick days.”

“The House just sent over what you asked for: the full TA deal w/ sick days as supported and demanded by our railworkers. Can they count on your YES vote for the amendment?” she then asked.

It’s surprising to see Republican Marco Rubio actually agree with far-left progressive Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on something for once however many believe this is a good cause.
