AOC Says She Will Not Support Interim Relief Package: ‘Insulting’ to Pass ‘Such a Small Amount of Money’

‘It is insulting to think that we can pass such a small amount of money in the context of not knowing when Congress is even going to reconvene’

OCASIO-CORTEZ: "We have not seen the final text of this bill, but what I can say is that if it matches up with what has been reported, I will not support this bill personally. I'm not speaking for the caucus, I'm not speaking for the delegation, I'm not speaking for anybody, but as the person who is representing the most impacted district in the country, my constituents are upset. My constituents were upset about the first package, because it is insulting to think that we can pass such a small amount of money in the context of not knowing when Congress is even going to reconvene and pass such a small amount of money, pat ourselves on the back, and then leave town again. I'm not here to support that."
