Some House Dems upset with Ocasio-Cortez

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has retaliated against fellow Democrat Joe Lieberman, who'd said he didn't see her as the future of the party.

Ocascio-Cortez previously responded to Lieberman's statement, writing on Twitter, "New party, who dis?".

Meanwhile, Politico ran an article today claiming "Exasperated Democrats try to rein in Ocasio-Cortez", for which AOC had yet another flawless response, not just shutting down the sentiment but also solidifying her nerd cred for the foreseeable future.

One House member who is trying to mentor Ocasio-Cortez on how to get along and get ahead in Washington is Rep. Nydia Velázquez (D-NY), according to Politico.

Freshman congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) is catching heat from her own party as Democratic lawmakers are growing frustrated with her style.

"I'm sure Ms. Cortez means well, but there's nearly an outstanding rule: Don't attack your own people", veteran Missouri Rep. Emanuel Cleaver said.

Some Democrats recently expressed their concern and criticism over her methods to Politico.


Just kidding, she'll keep on plugging away on the exact social and environmental reforms she has been, which will ultimately do more to save us than Joe Lieberman ever did.

"She needs to decide: Does she want to be an effective legislator or just continue being a Twitter star?" a House Democrat who agrees with her on the issues told Politico.

Republicans jumped on the revelations, telling the newspaper that the episode reveals "hypocrisy at its finest" by Ocasio-Cortez.

"There's a difference between being an activist and a lawmaker in Congress", the source said.

And she is expected to loudly advocate for Democratic primary campaigns against some of the middle-of-the-road members of her own party in Congress.

"She's new here, feeling her way around", Rep. Kurt Schrader (D., Ore.) said.

"I think she looks mature and they look juvenile", Walsh said. Jeffries is the new Democratic Caucus chair.
