Joe Lieberman, 76, Says AOC, 29, Isn't The Future Of Democratic Party

Pelosi Ocasio Cortez Hug

The campaign of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), a champion of progressive policies and supposed advocate of the working class, has been fined for not carrying workers' compensation coverage during a period of the campaign past year.

Last week, in an interview with Anderson Cooper on 60 Minutes, newly-elected Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) proposed a 60-70 percent marginal tax on income above $10 million, to finance a transition to renewable energy.

The debate prompted Nobel laureate economist Paul Krugman to write a basic primer in The New York Times on why Ocasio-Cortez's idea was a good one. She's repeatedly stated her support for legalization and advocated to fix the harms caused by the War on Drugs.

We can't wait to see how conservatives twist this into another criticism of the new congresswoman.

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. "There's a difference between being an activist and a lawmaker in Congress".

Theresa May issues DEMOCRACY WARNING ahead of MP 'coup' to STOP Brexit
But Mrs May is still facing a massive defeat in the crunch vote on Tuesday - with hardline Remainers and Brexiteers mobilising in a bid to thwart her plans.

While some of Ocasio-Cortez's colleagues may have been stumped by the pop culture reference, Twitter users went bonkers.

Her appointment would be a victory for progressives fighting to curb Wall Street's clout in Washington and inside the Democratic Party itself, Politico reported.

The assignment, which lawmakers say they expect her to receive, might pit the 29-year-old politician not only against banks - a major local industry in her state, but also potentially against business-friendly Democrats who have backed financial deregulation.

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

Lieberman may have served almost 25 years in the Senate - first as a Democrat, and later as an Independent - but he's certainly been lost to history at this point, and the political world is passing him by. Never one to shy away from conversations about her politics, Ocasio-Cortez responded to a tweet of the Politico report with a choice tweet of her own...a Watchmen quote.
