    Democrats are trying to rein in Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

    I said that democrat Politicians would turn on her eventually when she starts hurting them. She will not shutup, they will not cow her because she got elected in her district for her big mouth, they love her socialist EVERYTHINGS FREE big mouth and she will get re elected on her big mouth AND

    For that I thank the bronx


    Just one week into her congressional tenure, freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is ruffling feathers within her own party — which is now mounting a behind-the-scenes effort to rein in the social media star.


    The Bronx-born Democratic socialist has racked up a bevy of complaints from her colleagues, including incumbents who are aren’t pleased that she is backing a campaign to mount primaries against moderate Democrats, Politico reported.


    “I’m sure Ms. Cortez means well, but there’s almost an outstanding rule: Don’t attack your own people,” Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.) told the site. “We just don’t need sniping in our Democratic Caucus.”


    Politico spoke to nearly 20 Democratic lawmakers and aides who said there’s a two-fold effort from within to rein in Ocasio-Cortez — warning that she could wind up isolating herself — but also harness her star power to unite the party in its fight against Republicans.


    Some Democratic leaders are also annoyed that Ocasio-Cortez slammed the House’s new “pay-go” provision — requiring that all new spending be paid for by either increasing taxes or by budget cuts — on Twitter.


    Meanwhile, the rank and file don’t appreciate the push to get her appointed to a top committee position they think she doesn’t deserve.


    Other legislators worry that the social media darling, dubbed “AOC” and has 2.28 million Twitter followers, isn’t using her star power wisely.

    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

    GROUCHO MARX,

    When you're too far left for the far left, that can't be right, Ocrazio.

    She thinks she's more important then she is. That seems to plague many of our leaders.

    Her politics aside, I'm glad to see someone in Congress shake things up and act on her own beliefs and politics, as erroneous as they may be, instead of being a corporate proxy like most of Congress is.

    I'm not aware of your political leanings, but I have to ask if you ascribe that same way of thinking regarding shaking things up to the Trump candidacy leading to his Presidency?
