Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to join House Financial Services Committee

Aaron Sorkin Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Democrats Transgender Bathrooms Congress

Ms Ocasio-Cortez has previously called for a 70 per cent top tax rate and for the biggest banks to be broken up.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez pulled off a stunning upset over longtime Congressman Joe Crowley and now she's helping the progressive group that recruited her to find others to challenge Democratic incumbents.

The Bronx-born socialist vowed to inspect the student loan crisis and examine private prisons. It oversees big banks, lending, and the financial sector.

"Absolutely", she said. "I think it's interesting because what I consider to be my greatest strength, which is the intersectionality of our message, is I think the thing that triggers them the most".

When Yahoo News White House correspondent Hunter Walker asked Trump about Ocasio-Cortez calling him a racist, the president waved his hand a retorted by simply asking, "Who cares?"

Ed Donatell leaving Bears to become Broncos’ defensive coordinator
The Denver Broncos have hired former Chicago Bears defensive backs coach Ed Donatell to be their new defensive coordinator. Gary Kubiak addresses the media prior to Super Bowl 50. "That's why the preseason games will be good for me".

The Free Beacon noted that while Ocasio-Cortez most likely meant "she and her fellow liberal Democrats would enthusiastically pursue their agenda items, "run train" is known as a crude sexual term, which is sometimes used to denote acting in an aggressive manner".

But despite Trump's refusal to even entertain a question about her remark, Ocasio-Cortez seems to be calling it a victory.

But Ocasio-Cortez and other progressive Democrats who are poised to join the panel have refused to accept corporate donations.

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. "When we are courageous enough to just puncture the silence on an issue, they will start to move", she said.
