Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) have endorsed diverging strategies for how to proceed in the aftermath of the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe V. Wade.
Far-left Ocasio-Cortez has slammed President Joe Biden for "failing to protect" women's abortion rights, while Clinton said on CBS Tuesday, "I don't understand the criticism."
Ocasio-Cortez wants Biden to take "bold" action to force abortion rights at the federal level in spite of the court's ruling that there is no constitutional basis to do so. She said that a filibuster carveout proposed by Biden to codify abortion rights at the federal level does not go far enough.
Clinton said a better strategy is to "elect more Democrats."
The White House has said that it supports a filibuster carveout but that anything more than that may be perceived as federal overreach by voters and may hurt Democrats in the midterms.
