Some House Dems upset with Ocasio-Cortez

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

She's pro-labor, pro-equality, supports taxing the ultra-rich to pay for vital government programs and infrastructure, and champions the working class and minorities.

The campaign of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), a champion of progressive policies and supposed advocate of the working class, has been fined for not carrying workers' compensation coverage during a period of the campaign past year.

"The Democratic Party and the King of England have surprisingly similar reactions to democracy when their own power is threatened", he posted on Twitter Friday.

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.
