Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been one of the top vocal critics about the stimulus bill, but not because she didn’t want the bill. According to Ocasio-Cortez, she and other leading Democrats in Washington fought for more payments and even higher initial payments… none of which Republicans were going for.

“I’m telling you right now, and as you probably already know, $1,200 in New York City is not enough,” the congresswoman said during an Instagram Live Q/A session Thursday night.

“We fought for recurring payments. In fact, what we fought for was $2,000 per person, in addition to more monthly, recurring payments,” she said. “And again, the Trump Administration and Mitch McConnell’s Senate and the Republicans refused, absolutely refused to entertain the idea of recurring payments.”
