EXCERPT:

OCASIO-CORTEZ: "Well, I believe -- I believe Representative Jones has a point. And we have had very difficult experiences with making, I believe, the opposite mistake. And especially if Senate Democrats are not going to pass reforms on H.R.1, we cannot rely solely on a wish of winning elections, particularly in the Senate, when voting rights are under attack in Georgia, Arizona, and Texas, across the country. And if we're not going to pass H.R.1, with the preemptive clauses that can roll some of that -- voter suppression attacks back, yes, I believe that we should protect our Supreme Court, and that that should absolutely be a consideration."
