The vast accumulation of wealth at the top is matched by inordinate concentrations of political power

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. 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.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez didn't get a seat on the powerful tax writing committee where she sought to push her progressive agenda of Medicare for All, free college tuition and a green new deal.

During this time, campaign staffers were not covered for injuries received on the job.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the high-profile new Congresswoman from New York's 14th District, surprised comic book fans this morning by responding to critics by quoting Watchmen at them on Twitter.

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.

In 2011, Ocasio-Cortez graduated from Boston University with a degree in economics and worldwide relations.




Some lawmakers are trying to convince Ocasio-Cortez to use her influence to unite Democrats, while others have warned her that she's headed for a lonely tenure in Congress if she treats her more moderate colleagues as enemies, the report said.

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

So no, I don't think Lieberman exactly has his finger on the pulse of the Democratic Party but it's cute that Fox is letting him play.

The New York democratic socialist would be a thorn in the side of Wall Street, which has seen its regulatory burden lowered since Donald Trump became president.

A spokesman for the campaign told the New York Daily News that the campaign had nothing to say.
