New York Dems Cut Special Olympics Funding, Give Themselves Raises- Ocasio-Cortez Silent

When Education Secretary Betsy DeVos proposed to cut funding from the Special Olympics. Democrats freaked out- including New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

AOC took to twitter to slam the proposal:

“I see Betsy DeVos and the GOP are doubling down on their Anti-Everybody agenda by working to cut Fed funding for *the Special Olympics.*

The good news? You elected a House Dem majority, so we can halt it.

Now: who are your favorite disability advocates to follow?”

And this gem from the former bartender:

“Betsy DeVos ‘loves’ the Special Olympics so much, she wants to cut federal funding for it,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “She ‘loves’ students so much, she changed rules to make campus sexual assault victims more vulnerable. And she ‘loves’ teachers so much she wants to cut student loan forgiveness, too.”

But as you know, President Donald Trump overruled the decision.

“I heard about it this morning,” Trump said on Thursday. “I have overridden my people. We’re funding the Special Olympics.”

So there you go. Everything’s good to go, right?
