Rep. Ocasio-Cortez says to serve on financial services panel

Joe Lieberman Takes Another Dig At 'Silly' AOC

Valliere says there's little chance that the committee will spur new legislation aimed at adding more regulations on the financial sector, but he warns that as a member of the House Financial Services Committee with subpoena power, Ocasio-Cortez can "make life miserable for industry execs with endless hearings".

She framed her appointment as a big achievement by pointing out how exclusive the House committee is - "one of just four".

Representative Maxine Waters, a California Democrat, will lead the financial services panel.

Ocasio-Cortez's pledge to gang bang the progressive agenda comes in the transcript of an extensive interview with the Post, in which she was asked about "conservative media" setting her up as "another boogeyman on the left".

"Personally, I'm looking forward to digging into the student loan crisis, examining for-profit prisons/ICE detention, and exploring the development of public & postal banking".

"I don't think it's surprising", Ocasio-Cortez said of the poll results in an interview with The Hill".

Walker quoted Ocasio-Cortez once more, then went on a bit of a rampage about socialism, effectively sub-tweeting the Democratic representative.

She is second only to the president, Axios found, when it measured the Twitter star power of several politicians.

"Who cares?" Trump said of her comments, brushing off the question with a hand gesture. "You know, like, 'We're going to take her down.' Dude, you're all out of bullets, you're all out of bombs, you're all out of all this stuff".

Her victory in the November general election was a foregone conclusion in New York's 14th Congressional District, where 77 per cent of voters chose Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump in 2016.
