Ocasio-Cortez, a 29-year-old representative-elect from New York City, said on Twitter Wednesday that the system referred to as paygo "isn't only bad economics", but is "also a dark political maneuver created to hamstring progress on healthcare+other leg". "We shouldn't hinder ourselves from the start".
