Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, offered again to team up with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., this time to make birth control available as an over-the-counter medication.
“Perhaps, in addition to the legislation we are already working on together to ban Members of Congress from becoming lobbyists, we can team up here as well,” Cruz tweeted.
“A simple, clean bill making birth control available over the counter. Interested?” he asked the freshman congresswoman.
Cruz and Ocasio-Cortez, as he noted, already agreed to join forces on a bill that would ban lawmakers from becoming lobbyists after their time in Congress — a rare moment of bipartisanship between politicians who seemed to represent complete opposite sides of the ideological spectrum.
