Well, Joe Biden is not even in office and Rep. Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) has already gone on the attack.
This week, Biden unveiled a $1.9 trillion stimulus package he wants to put in play as soon as he sits behind the Resolute Desk and his new Georgia Democrats Senators take their seats.
The plan, however, is coming under fire from none other than AOC.
Not Enough, Joe
The plan that was passed by Trump offered a $600 stimulus payment to Americans.
Democrats wanted $2,000 and even though Trump also wanted a $2,000 payment, Republicans blocked it.
As part of Biden’s plan, he was going to add a $1,400 check to make the total payment of $2,000, but AOC’s math skills do not appear to be working properly.
AOC does not want to count the previous $600 payment…
Unemployment benefits should be retroactive too. https://t.co/WRIiBAe0NY

This is a rather auspicious start in a relationship that will have to be watched very closely.
It is a given that without the support of AOC and her uber progressives, Biden never would have had a chance in this election.
If AOC turns on him, it could quickly change the outlook of the 2024 presidential race as well as presenting some serious questions about what the Democrat party should do with AOC in 2022.
