D.C's new strange bedfellows: AOC, Ted Cruz partner to drain the swamp
It was a match made on Twitter, where the two sparred as recently as April over the price of a croissant and the minimum wage.

"Politics doesn't make much odder couples than this — Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Ted Cruz struck a deal on Twitter on Thursday to work together on an anti-lobbying bill to stop the infamous revolving door."
"Ocasio-Cortez, the self-described democratic socialist from New York, and Cruz, the staunch conservative Republican from Texas, found common ground after the Democrat tweeted out a Public Citizen article on the large number of recently retired Congress people who've taken lobbying or policy-influencing jobs."
"The unlikely pair quickly lined up co-sponsors on Twitter as well — Sen. Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, will team up with Cruz on the bill in the Senate, and Rep. Chip Roy, R-Texas, will team with Ocasio-Cortez in the House. "And that’s just in a few hours — there will surely be more from both parties to sign on. Nice," Ocasio-Cortez tweeted."

What do you think of that? The important thing is that they are both wanting to work together on an important bill from across the aisle. So, the hand shaking is now taking place and they should go to work on that as soon as possible.
