    Just watch the sabotage unfold.
    That sounds eerily similar to what happened to the republicans with the freedom caucus and the tea party.

    Them getting passed over has less to do with their stated positions and more to do with them both being as dumb as a post. They don't want them representing their party on the weekly Sunday political shows and being considered members of the party leadership.

    I doubt if we'll be seeing ocasio-cortez doing lunch with either pelosi or sanders any time soon unless it's to throw peanuts into OC's enclosure.

    How about the disruption from business as usual. How about creating obstacles for party leadership to move their agenda's forward.

    People who are affiliated with the freedom caucus were welcomed into various leadership positions in the party. They were not rejected and denied committee positions. Their voice was welcomed. They were included, not excluded.

    That's a narrow view. I'm speaking more broadly. Both the freedom caucus and tea party proved to create challenges for republican leadership on agenda items they were trying to push through.

    The freedom caucus perhaps, the Tea Parties, no, they were grassroots.
