    Ocasio-Cortez passed over for influential House committee

    The dems are now getting scared, they denied both the Socialist [ocasio] and the MotherF****r [Talib] from committee positions

    Mild Democrat Liberals and Moderates you have sliced your own throats, you cant stop this train you boarded


    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez didn’t get a seat on the powerful tax writing committee where she sought to push her progressive agenda of Medicare for All, free college tuition and a green new deal. Instead, the open downstate New York 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.

    Suozzi will assume the committee seat of Rep. Joe Crowley, the Queens Democrat Ocasio-Cortez defeated last year in a stunning upset.


    Ocasio-Cortez sought a spot on the committee—which is usually off limits to freshman reps – with the backing of progressive groups that pushed for a slate of fresh-faced candidates to earn posh assignments.


    Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib made a play for Appropriations, but she too was passed over.

    It's funny how so many on the left defend these two but now the Democrats pass them over.

    Cortez Is still running around the Capital looking for Phil Abusters office. She says she wants to be on the appropriations committee because she understands when something is appropriate. She says we shouldn’t just teach Civics in schools, we should teach about all automobiles. When they delivered a new TV to her office and read on the box built-in antenna she asked the delivery person if antenna was a city in China. She just completed a jigsaw puzzle that said 5-7 years, she was so proud to get it done in 2 weeks. When asked of her choice for speaker of the house she said Bose.

    I don't agree with Cortezs politics, at all, but I love the chaos she's creating. She's like Trump in that respect. The institution of American politics is completely corrupt and anyone who would throw it on it's head gets my polite applause.

    Both Ocasio-Cortez and muslem Rashida Tlaib were culled from consideration for committee seats because Democrats don't like them. They are both idiots and dangerous to the Democrats' Congressional Comfy Club. However, they will both be useful as molotov $#@!tails against Republicans in the future. Other than that, Democrats hold both of them in contempt of the party. I doubt if any Democrats like or trust either one of these nutjobs.

    Just watch the sabotage unfold.
