Democrats Throw up their Hands in Frustration as AOC Rages On

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Schools Joe Lieberman Over Remarks That She’s Too ‘Controversial’ Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s epic clapback at Joe Lieberman has Twitter laughing out loud

"She doesn't understand how the place works yet".

Joe Lieberman, former Democratic Senator from CT, made it clear he is not a fan of New York Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Since upsetting six-term incumbent Joe Crowley in a primary last summer and winning election to Crowley's old seat in November, Ocasio-Cortez has used her enormous social-media following to chastise fellow Democrats she believes are insufficiently progressive and too beholden to the antiquated establishment.

"This coverage is vital to ensuring workers are protected for on-the-job injuries", she added. John McCain, a Republican over the Democrats' nominee, Sen.

"This is basic stuff, especially if you hold yourself out to be the champion of workers", the campaign operative said.

The New York representative sought a committee assignment that would allow her to take on big finance, according to a Politico report.

Meanwhile, Jessica Proud, spokeswoman for the New York State GOP, said: "Hypocrisy at its finest".

Sunday she will take the field for the New England Patriots-Los Angeles Chargers AFC Divisional Round game at Gillette Stadium. This will mark Tolbert's seventh postseason assignment and has received one in every year he has been eligible.

Every employer is required to cover the cost of compensation coverage, and can easily do so by deducting up to 60 cents per week from each worker's paycheck.

Ocasio-Cortez's plan would start applying the 70 per cent rate after the first $10 million.

One day, all of these rightwing pundits and centrist politicians are going to look up and shout, "save us", and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will look down and whisper "no". Last month, she announced that she would pay her congressional interns at least $15 per hour. "Very few members of Congress actually pay their interns".

After all, she's been in office for less than a fortnight and hasn't done anything except tweet out ridiculous comic book references and scare the beejeebees out of rational Democrats by pushing her multi-trillion-dollar "Green New Deal".

"This is a disgrace", she wrote on Twitter.

AOC knows that - hell, she represents that - and judging by Joe's inane comments to somebody as far right wing as Cavuto... we think Joe may have an idea that his time has always been up, too. "Congress of ALL places should raise MRAs so we can pay staff an actual DC living wage".
