Dems Looking to Bring Ocasio-Cortez Under Control

House democrats are apparently so exasperated by newly elected New York Congresswoman, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, that they're willingly going on record saying they'd like to "rein" her in.

"This coverage is vital to ensuring workers are protected for on-the-job injuries", Ms. Stewart said.

The failure to provide workers' compensation coverage lasted one month, as noted by Stewart, but that was enough for fellow Democrats to voice concern over the report and critics of the young rep to highlight the lack of coverage as evidence of "hypocrisy". "It's unbelievable", said state GOP spokeswoman Jessica Proud.

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.

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

Lawmakers have been quietly criticizing the NY newcomer and are hoping to rein in her criticism of those in her own party, Politico reported, citing almost 20 lawmakers and aides. "We have now over 100 new members of this freshman class".

Ocasio-Cortez followers were there to applaud the tweet, supporting the idea of Lieberman and his views being out of date with even more jabs and memes. For example, during a recent "60 Minutes" interview, she explained that being "morally right" is more important than being factually accurate. "But it's a good example of what I'm talking about, a bright shiny new object, came out of nowhere and surprised people when she beat a very experienced congressman", she told CNN in December. I say, 'OK, this was clumsy.' and then I restate what my point was. "I'm a little confused why she's the thing".
