Twitter Erupts as Ted Cruz and AOC Actually Agree on Lobbying Legislation

On Thursday, liberals and conservatives on social media received a surprise, as Republican Senator Ted Cruz and Democrat Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez appeared to find common ground, and discussed moving forward with bipartisan legislation.

The startling turn of events unfolded as Cruz publicly noted that he agreed with AOC on a lifetime ban of Congress members from going on to serve as lobbyists.

“The Swamp would hate it, but perhaps a chance for some bipartisan cooperation?” suggested Cruz.

“If we can agree on a bill with no partisan snuck-in clauses, no poison pills, etc – just a straight, clean ban on members of Congress becoming paid lobbyists – then I’ll co-lead the bill with you,” replied Ocasio-Cortez, to which Cruz said, “You’re on.”

Social media users praised the move, as well as the two politicians, for putting aside their differences in an effort to address a serious issue.
