Fellow Dems Chastise Ocasio-Cortez: ‘She Doesn’t Understand How the Place Works’

Fellow Dems Chastise Ocasio-Cortez: ‘She Doesn’t Understand How the Place Works’

Then along came Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez - and her social-media megaphone.

Ocasio-Cortez, who describes herself as a "democratic socialist" has become the face of a new younger and more "woke" demographic focused on fixing systemic problems in the country.

"I think with our district, we can be ambitious, so we're kind of swinging for the fences on committees", Ocasio-Cortez told Hill.tv in an interview after her win over Democrat Joe Crowley during the November midterm elections.

Lawmakers have been quietly criticizing the NY newcomer and are hoping to rein in her criticism of those in her own party, Politico reported, citing almost 20 lawmakers and aides.

Some House Democrats have been unhappy with progressive Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's resistance to falling in line with her fellow party members, particularly her threats to support primary challenges against incumbents, Politico reported Friday. "You're locked up in here with ME'".

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY, a self-proclaimed democratic socialist, has come under fire after it was revealed that her campaign was fined by the state for not providing workers' compensation coverage for a month a year ago. The former bartender, who joined a climate-change protest in Speaker Nancy Pelosi's office during her freshman congressional orientation, also demanded the creation of a specific committee to further the implementation of a so-called "green new deal", but was refused that as well. Ocasio-Cortez shared with her more than 2 million Twitter followers that she'd vote against a Democratic rules package.

AOC knows that - hell, she represents that - and judging by Joe's inane comments to somebody as far right wing as Cavuto... we think Joe may have an idea that his time has always been up, too. 'Honestly, if the Democrats had 3 more of her, Americans would run away so fast that we'd have a power monopoly until she's Lieberman's age'.
