Some House Dems upset with Ocasio-Cortez

Some House Dems upset with Ocasio-Cortez

"I certainly hope she's not the future and I don't believe she is", Lieberman told Fox Business Network when asked about Ocasio-Cortez's role in the Democratic Party. "She's gotten a lot of attention because she's different".

When an editor from the National Journal, Josh Kraushaar, pointed out Ocasio-Cortez's media criticism resembled that of President Donald Trump, the self-identified Democratic socialist doubled down. "And that is because they had to be center-left to win some of those competitive swing districts that they took from Republicans", Lieberman said.

Ms. Ocasio-Cortez, who is extremely active on social media, has yet to respond to the embarrassing report.

Former Democratic vice presidential candidate and general curmudgeon Joe Lieberman is a former Senator best known for bucking his party by supporting conservative positions. And establishment Democrats are beginning to become annoyed with her.

Democratic leaders were also frustrated that Ocasio-Cortez criticized their new set of House rules on Twitter in the first week of the new Congress, Politico reported. She still has not answered whether she will follow through with her own advice to fellow lawmakers to "have some integrity" and forgo her paychecks during the partial government shutdown.

Ocasio-Cortez followers were there to applaud the tweet, supporting the idea of Lieberman and his views being out of date with even more jabs and memes. This wasn't Lieberman's first slam against her.

Just a few weeks into the new Congress, Ocasio-Cortez is already causing heartburn among centrist Democrats who are wary of her unapologetic proposal to raise the top marginal income tax rate to 70 per cent. "It doesn't have to", Lieberman wrote in The Wall Street Journal.

From Dec. 11 to January 11 (when Ocasio-Cortez had been on the job just eight days), @AOC Twitter interactions (11.8 million ) - meaning retweets of her messages plus likes - were more than twice the 4.6 million interactions for Sen.

The campaign of U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been fined $1,500 for not having the required workers' compensation for a month previous year.
