Ocasio-Cortez’s Attacks on Democrats Have Party Scrambling for Damage Control

  • Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Quotes 'Watchmen' on Twitter

'Who dis?' Ocasio-Cortez blasts veteran Dem Joe Lieberman for saying she is not party's future Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has retaliated against fellow Democrat Joe Lieberman, who'd said he didn't see her as the future of the party.

According to reports, the campaign was forced to pay a $1,500 fine for not providing the required insurance.

Representative Ocasio-Cortez announced that she's hired former Marijuana Policy Project Director of Federal Policies Dan Riffle to work as senior counsel and advisor to the newly elected congresswoman.

During this time, campaign staffers were not covered for injuries received on the job.

Instead of letting the article go unmentioned, Ocasio-Cortez invoked a quote by the comic book protagonist Rorschach, created by Alan Moore. "We just don't need sniping in our Democratic Caucus".

Ocasio-Cortez spokesman Corbin Trent told The Hill that the congresswoman's remarks on the show were "more conceptual" than a specific proposal for a 70 percent marginal rate.


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".

The top marginal tax rate in the United States was above 90 percent in much of the 1950s and early 1960s, and the rate was 70 percent as recently as 1980.That year, the 70-percent rate applied to income over $215,400 for married couples.

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.

Ocasio-Cortez shared with her more than 2 million Twitter followers that she'd vote against a Democratic rules package.

"I think she needs to give herself an opportunity to know her colleagues and to give herself a sense of the chemistry of the body before passing judgment on anyone or anything", Rep. Yvette Clarke (D-NY) said. "I'm a little confused why she's the thing".

Her chief of staff also fired back at House Democratic lawmakers who spoke to Politico about Ocasio-Cortez.
