Democrats retake House of Representatives in US Congress

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez affirmed on Wednesday that she will vote against a House rules package proposed by Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi, in a dramatic show of defiance that sets up yet another early shutdown with her own party's establishment.

PAYGO will require new mandatory spending increases to be funded either by cuts in mandatory spending or increases in revenue, which could be done through taxes.

"We all agree that the real problem with PAYGO exists in the statute that requires it", they said in a statement. "Critical investments in education, infrastructure, and health care should not be held hostage to budgetary constraints that Republicans have never respected anyhow".

Drew Hammill, Pelosi's deputy chief of staff, responded to criticism of the pay-go rule by noting how a federal law signed under President Barack Obama mandates across-the-board cuts to other programs if new deficit-increasing legislation is enacted. But with high-profile politicians like Khanna and Ocasio-Cortez signaling their opposition, it may able to happen.

However, he changed his mind after Pelosi agreed to a deal about setting term limits for serving as speaker.
