Rep. Ocasio-Cortez's campaign paid $1,500 fine to NY state

Report: Ocasio-Cortez still mum on taking paycheck despite 13 in Congress refusing during shutdown

Then along came Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez - and her social-media megaphone.

Strikingly, the scene from the comic book series from which the quote is taken occurs in a prison cafeteria-a potentially provocative, though perhaps fluid, metaphor for what Congress has become to many lawmakers.

A Democratic "campaign veteran" told the Daily News that "it's not a great look" for Ocasio-Cortez.

Former Sen. Joe Lieberman, (I-CT.), on calls from some Democrats for a tax hike and the 2020 presidential race.

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. "You're locked up in here with ME'". The stunt backfired as the dance went viral and Ocasio-Cortez dancing her way into her Congressional office in a short video for Twitter.

Similarly, Ocasio-Cortez, is pushing for a "Medicare for All" medical insurance overhaul in the USA, an ambitious plan that would put much of the industry in the hands of government.

High fibre diet reduces chronic disease risk
These studies involved initially healthy participants, so the findings can not be applied to those with existing chronic diseases. A good target for those wanting to reap health gains would be to eat 25g to 29g of dietary fibre a day, the analysis found.

Some lawmakers with ties to Ocasio-Cortez are hoping to coax her into using her star power to unite Democrats and turn her fire on Republicans. "We will be one of them".

The campaign of rookie U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., has been fined by the state for not providing workers' compensation coverage for a month previous year.

By Friday morning, Lieberman began trending on Twitter as others felt similarly.

Velázquez told Politico that the two shared a "long, long conversation" about the dynamics of Congress and Washington, and how there shouldn't be a "litmus test" for each district, and advised Ocasio-Cortez to think twice before backing primary challenges against her colleagues.

Incumbent Democrats are most annoyed by Ocasio-Cortez's threat to back primary opponents against members of their ranks she deems too moderate.
