Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez appointed to panel overseeing financial sector

Joe Lieberman Takes Another Dig At 'Silly' AOC

It oversees big banks, lending, and the financial sector.

"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 started tuning in more to activism and really getting to the core of these issues", she said.

She was originally vying to be on the powerful House Ways and Means Committee, but moderate Democrat Tom Suozzi was selected instead.

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".

"Everybody knows someone in their life that is already an wonderful public servant", Ocasio-Cortez said in a nine-minute video released Wednesday by Justice Democrats.

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

Rams turn to running game
The Rams will be in the conference championship game for the first time since the 2001 season when they beat the Eagles. Los Angeles Rams coach Sean McVay felt the pressure.


Like President Donald Trump, she is a prolific tweeter and confirmed her recent appointment to the House Financial Services Committee on the platform Tuesday night.

Per Bloomberg, those names include Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.), Rashida Tlaib (Mich.), Katie Porter (Calif.) and Tulsi Gabbard (Hawaii).

"She just takes us back to the big-spending, big-taxing Democratic Party, and the Democratic Party is not going to succeed that way", he said.

Ms Ocasio-Cortez shocked the Democratic establishment last June by defeating Rep. Joe Crowley, a 10-term incumbent, in a primary election.

After Anderson Cooper called Ocasio-Cortez's 70 percent top marginal tax rate suggestion and other bold progressive proposals a "radical agenda" during the "60 Minutes" interview, the NY congresswoman responded, "If that's what radical means, call me a radical".
