Some House Dems upset with Ocasio-Cortez

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

Ocasio-Cortez, 29 and a member of the Democratic Socialists of America, has been slamming both the GOP and Democrats on social media, including on Twitter, where she has 2.2 million followers.

Members of Congress tell Politico on and off the record that Ocasio-Cortez will have an ineffective legislative career if she continues to criticize party leadership.

Ocasio-Cortez's mention of "brown lady says a curse word" was likely a swipe at the media attention Rashida Tlaib, a Muslim congresswoman from MI, garnered when she called Trump a motherf****r shortly after being sworn into office.

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. But their frustration goes beyond that: Democratic leaders are upset that she railed against their new set of House rules on Twitter the first week of the new Congress.

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

She says the fine, first reported by the New York Daily News, has been paid.

Strikingly, the scene from the comic book series from which the quote is taken occurs in a prison cafeteria-a potentially provocative, though perhaps fluid, metaphor for what Congress has become to many lawmakers.

Lieberman, who ran as the vice presidential nominee on Al Gore's unsuccessful ticket in 2000, told Fox Business Network on Thursday that he hopes Representative Alexandria Cortez-Ocasio (D-N.Y.) doesn't think she's the future of the Democratic Party.

"Democrats are insane to be criticizing this woman".

"Ocasio-Cortez's desired "living wage" of $15 an hour has been a living hell for many small business owners in NY, who've been unable to offset the cost through higher prices", Employment Policies Institute Managing Director Michael Saltsman said in response to the closure.
