“Be a radical. Be different. Be a change leader Innovate,” he tweeted. “It’s your generation’s turn to govern. Go for it. But please leave our bad habit of using partisan language 'Us vs Them’ 'Rep vs Dem’ 'Libs vs Cons' behind. We are all in this together. Change the Game to Change the World.”

 

After some blowback from Ocasio-Cortez’s followers on Twitter, Cuban said it was time for a new generation of politicians to take a different approach to politics.

 

Ocasio-Cortez criticized Scalise over the weekend about the GOP tax-cut law after he criticized her for proposing a 70 percent tax on the rich.
