Democrats Throw up their Hands in Frustration as AOC Rages On

Donald Trump

Since her election, Ocasio-Cortez has made a number of controversial statements which have provoked strong responses, including accusing the former White House Chief of Staff and retired Marine Corps General John F. Kelly of "cowardice".

Joe Lieberman, former Democratic Senator from CT, made it clear he is not a fan of New York Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Last week, a conservative activist released an old video of Ocasio-Cortez dancing in college, apparently in an homage to the '80s classic The Breakfast Club, in an effort to humiliate the newly-sworn-in Congresswoman.

Stewart also added that the workers compensation coverage is "vital to ensuring workers are protected for on-the-job injuries".

Democrats and Republicans alike have accused Ocasio-Cortez of hypocrisy.

"This is basic stuff, especially if you hold yourself out to be the champion of workers", the campaign operative said. "It's unbelievable", said state GOP spokeswoman Jessica Proud.

Solari: I Have No Advice For Isco
Santiago Solari's men sit 5th on the La Liga table with 30 points from 18 games, 10 behind leaders and arch rivals Barcelona . But the coach says, "Isco is doing fine, just like all of the players who are training at the moment".

The New York Daily News was the first to report this.

"Every covered employer bears the cost of providing benefits in excess of the contributions collected from employees", the Workers Compensation Board told the New York Post.

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

"It was an honor of a lifetime to meet with Rev. Jesse Jackson to discuss how we advance the movement for economic and racial justice in the United States", Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. Last month, she announced that she would pay her congressional interns at least $15 per hour. Ocasio-Cortez shared with her more than 2 million Twitter followers that she'd vote against a Democratic rules package. "Very few members of Congress actually pay their interns".

"New party, who dis?"

Recently Ocasio-Cortez told Politico that she wasn't interested in backing progressive candidates against incumbent Democrats, insisting that she's "focused on my job".
