In An Odd Move Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ted Cruz Unite to Drain the Swamp

Republican Senator Ted Cruz got into a fight with Ilhan Omar he blasted Democratic Congresswoman over a racist tweet suggesting that Latinos would never make up the cut under a merit-based immigration system.

But today he seems to find a way to cooperate with another young Democrat!

AOC Tweeted:

f you are a member of Congress + leave, you shouldn’t be allowed to turn right around&leverage your service for a lobbyist check.

I don’t think it should be legal at ALL to become a corporate lobbyist if you’ve served in Congress.

At a minimum, there should be a long wait period.

To which Te Cruz responded:

Here’s something I don’t say often: on this point, I AGREE with @AOC Indeed, I have long called for a LIFETIME BAN on former Members of Congress becoming lobbyists. The Swamp would hate it, but perhaps a chance for some bipartisan cooperation?

AOC replied:

.@tedcruz if you’re serious about a clean bill, then I’m down.

Let’s make a deal.

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.

Brian Schatz a senator from Hawaii also joined in.

It seems that a team seems to be forming and it could be a good move for both sides:

Do you think that this Bipartisanship deal will work?
