Dynamic Duo Ted Cruz and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez help BLAST Act

62SHARES

The political world has just been shocked to its core, as one of the most conservative members of Congress, Sen. Ted Cruz, and one of the most socialist-minded members, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, have made nice and will be partnering to work on a bill that would ban former members of Congress from lobbying.

This is music to the ears of Florida Senator Rick Scott (R), whose  BLAST Act  got a big jolt of bipartisan support. Scott introduced the bill back in March with Sen. Mike Braun and would permanently ban former members of Congress from “cashing in and becoming lobbyists.”

Scott was delighted to see that Texas Senator Ted Cruz (R) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D) took a break from their ongoing Twitter war to agree to work together to prevent congressmen from ever becoming part of the lobby corp.

 “I’m proud to introduce this bill that imposes a permanent ban on members of Congress becoming lobbyists,” said Scott “Rather than serving the public, too many in Washington spend their political careers preparing for a lucrative job at a DC lobbying firm where they can cash in on their connections and their access. Congress should never serve as a training ground for future lobbyists, and putting an end to the revolving door is a common sense way to make Washington work for families.”
