Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez came out with rockets blasting at Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) Saturday after the right-wing lawmaker called for the end of government benefits at the Conservative Political Action Conference.

“We’re here to tell government: ‘We don’t want your benefits. We don’t want your welfare,’” Boebert shouted as she marched back and forth across the stage in Dallas. “Don’t come to us with your Fauci ouchie. Leave us the hell alone!”

Ocasio-Cortez fired back on Twitter:

“Tell ’em loud and proud girl! GOP will strip your unemployment protections and dismantle any semblance of a public safety net we have left! Then make working people pay way more for everything on low wages while Wall St gets a meal ticket!” AOC said, before sarcastically adding: “Good ol conservative values baby!”

Ironically, Boebert has talked about her own days on welfare, which eventually led her to “living the American dream.” Now she’s ready to turn off aid to others.

Other Twitter users had a few choice responses to Boebert’s call.
