Ocasio-Cortez Poised to Join Banking Panel

Ocasio-Cortez Poised to Join Banking Panel

The effort, described by almost 20 lawmakers and aides, is part carrot, part stick: Some lawmakers with ties to Ocasio-Cortez are hoping to coax her into using her star power to unite Democrats and turn her fire on Republicans. "We just don't need sniping in our Democratic Caucus".

"I'm sure Ms. Cortez means well, but there's nearly an outstanding rule: Don't attack your own people", Representative Emmanuel Cleaver (D., Mo.) told Politico.

Additionally, Ocasio-Cortez accused: President Trump "he has a proven track record of discrimination against anybody who's really non-white in the United States" predating his 2016 election to the White House.

Ocasio-Cortez's chief of staff hit back at the Democrats quoted in the Politico piece, comparing them to King George III during the American Revolution, and approvingly quote-tweeting a tweet comparing them to people who opposed civil rights demonstrations in the 1960s. "There's a difference between being an activist and a lawmaker in Congress".

Ocasio-Cortez wrote on Twitter, suggesting that Lieberman's glory days are long gone.

"But once you get to, like, the tippy-tops - on your 10 millionth dollar - sometimes you see tax rates as high as 60 or 70 percent", Ocasio-Cortez said. "This is basic stuff, especially if you hold yourself out to be the champion of workers".

Her campaign failed to carry comp on its employees for a month, resulting in a fine by the state Workers' Compensation Board, according to several news reports.

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

"Democrats are insane to be criticizing this woman".

"I think she needs to give herself an opportunity to know her colleagues and to give herself a sense of the chemistry of the body before passing judgment on anyone or anything", said Representative Yvette Clarke (D., N.Y.).

"People are afraid of her", said one senior Democratic aide.
