Democrats Reportedly Trying to "Rein In" Ocasio-Cortez

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Schools Joe Lieberman Over Remarks That She’s Too ‘Controversial’

If there's any doubt that freshman Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the new champion of all progressive causes, her latest hire will definitely prove it.

Ocasio-Cortez's office did not respond to The Daily Caller News Foundation's request for comment. "It's not the same thing, at all", she said.

In a comparison that Ocasio-Cortez would surely hate, politicos have pointed out that the NY rep. has "Trumpian" tendencies.

Ocasio-Cortez hasn't proposed any legislation directly related to marijuana yet, although she has only been in Congress for like two weeks now.

'The so-called champion of workers, when given her own responsibility, is not following the law...'

Meanwhile, Politico ran an article today claiming "Exasperated Democrats try to rein in Ocasio-Cortez", for which AOC had yet another flawless response, not just shutting down the sentiment but also solidifying her nerd cred for the foreseeable future.

Three dead, 23 injured when Ottawa bus struck transit shelter Friday
Anyone looking for information about family members can go to the Churchill Seniors Centre at 345 Richmond Rd. Ottawa Hospital's trauma center said it had received nine patients "in critical condition" from the crash.

It wasn't long before fans of Ocasio-Cortez began to bemoan what, from the outside, appears to be a generational divide between establishment Democrats and the class of newly-elected, younger, more diverse Congresspeople who rose to prominence during the most recent mid-terms.

"Washington is a political animal where a lot of the work that you want to accomplish depends on relationships within the Democratic Caucus", Velázquez said.

A Democratic "campaign veteran" told the Daily News that "it's not a great look" for Ocasio-Cortez.

The assignment, which lawmakers say they expect her to receive, might pit the 29-year-old politician not only against banks - a major local industry in her state, but also potentially against business-friendly Democrats who have backed financial deregulation.

"She's new here, feeling her way around", said Representative Kurt Schrader (D., Ore.).

The Politico report said some Democrats compare Ocasio-Cortez' prolific use of Twitter to President Trump's regular posts on social media. I think she has matured.
