Ted Cruz and AOC get in heated Twitter feud over COVID relief

Texas Senator Ted Cruz fired back at AOC Monday after she suggested she does not know how Republicans sleep at night.

AOC had tweeted “People across the country are going hungry, COVID is set to explode, and Mitch McConnell dismissed the Senate last week.

She added “I don’t know how these people can sleep at night. I really don’t.”

Cruz fired back “Why is your party filibustering $500 billion in COVID relief? And Joe Biden is cheering them on. Thinking that blocking relief somehow helps Dems win Georgia.”

AOC then fired back “You know in the House, when we don’t have the votes to pass something, we work on the bill until we pick up the votes to pass it. That includes GOP votes – & yes, GOP have voted for my leg too. The Senate should try it sometime! People are going hungry as you tweet from vacay.”

Cruz then shot back “[email protected] seems not to know there are Democrats in the Senate.

Or that Joe Biden (also a Dem) is publicly calling on Senate Dems to continue filibustering COVID relief because he thinks it will help them win Georgia.”
