Where does she get her news?
Democratic-Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez shared an interesting take on Twitter after the Supreme Court ruled on a Texas abortion case.
“Republicans promised to overturn Roe v Wade, and they have. Democrats can either abolish the filibuster and expand the court, or do nothing as millions of peoples’ bodies, rights, and lives are sacrificed for far-right minority rule. This shouldn’t be a difficult decision.”
“The issue before the court was not whether the Texas law is constitutional but whether it should temporarily block the law’s enforcement while the case is litigated. Nevertheless, the congresswoman from New York indicated that the court scrapped established court precedent on the constitutionality of abortion and that court- packing is the only remedy,” Fox News reports.
The court even tried to get ahead of the story, issuing a statement explaining that this was not a judgement on the law, itself.
“In reaching this conclusion, we stress that we do not purport to resolve definitively any jurisdictional or substantive claim in the applicants’ lawsuit. In particular, this order is not based on any conclusion about the constitutionality of Texas’s law, and in no way limits other procedurally proper challenges to the Texas law, including in Texas state courts,” the court said.
