Ocasio-Cortez passed over for influential House committee

'I certainly hope she's not the future and I don't believe she is, ' Lieberman said in a Fox Business Network interview. I say, 'OK, this was clumsy.' and then I restate what my point was.

The New York Republican Party has since slammed Ocasio-Cortez as a hypocrite, saying the violation is "not a good look" for someone who claims to be a champion for workers.

The congresswoman tweeted the article and captioned it, "New party, who dis?" "She's controversial", Lieberman continued.

Former Democratic vice presidential candidate and general curmudgeon Joe Lieberman is a former Senator best known for bucking his party by supporting conservative positions.

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. "And that is because they had to be center-left to win some of those competitive swing districts that they took from Republicans".

Three minutes later, India again experienced the so-near-yet-so-far moment when Udanta Singh's shot ricochets off the bar. Few teams were able to cause UAE problems in their own backyard and India forced the hosts to alter their game.

Since upsetting six-term incumbent Joe Crowley in a primary last summer and winning election to Crowley's old seat in November, Ocasio-Cortez has used her vast social-media following to chastise fellow Democrats she believes are insufficiently progressive and too beholden to the antiquated establishment.

Politico noted that Ocasio-Cortez's star power includes being better known by millions of Americans than longtime House Democrats, including Nancy Pelosi and John Lewis.

The stunt backfired as the dance went viral and Ocasio-Cortez dancing her way into her Congressional office in a short video for Twitter.

So no, I don't think Lieberman exactly has his finger on the pulse of the Democratic Party but it's cute that Fox is letting him play.

Instead, the open downstate NY slot on the House Ways and Means Committee went to a moderate Democrat, Long Island Rep. Tom Suozzi, a former CPA, attorney and county executive.
