Democrats Throw up their Hands in Frustration as AOC Rages On

It started when Joe Lieberman, Democratic presidential nominee Al Gore's running mate in the 2000 election who retired in 2013 after serving 24 years as U.S. Senator from CT, was asked if the far-left Ocasio-Cortez represented the future of the Democratic party in an interview with Fox Business Network.

Jokes aside, Ocasio-Cortez is right to clap back at the critics who feel as if she's making them look bad in comparison by making good on the promises she made to her constituents on the campaign trail.

A spokesman for Ocasio-Cortez said he's looking into the matter but declined to comment.

Now, Democratic members of Congress are saying they're done with her "sniping" at their own party and aren't sure if her career in Congress will go too well if she keeps up the criticism.

They also quoted Democrats, such as Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.) saying things like this: "I'm sure Ms. Cortez means well, but there's nearly an outstanding rule: Don't attack your own people".

Winter Storm Warning Continues, Heaviest Snow Tracking North
There is a slight chance for a few flurries on Monday, otherwise a dry week with milder weather returning on Tuesday. However, area counties had some snow and freezing rain in the December storm that caused schools to cancel classes.

House Democrats were also annoyed that Ocasio-Cortez sought a seat on the powerful Ways and Means Committee - on which veteran lawmakers typically serve - with a grassroots campaign to pressure Speaker Nancy Pelosi to add her to the panel, Politico reported, adding that Ocasio-Cortez's office denied being behind the effort.

"Washington is a political animal where a lot of the work that you want to accomplish depends on relationships within the Democratic Caucus", Velázquez said. "There's a difference between being an activist and a lawmaker in Congress". The former vice-presidential nominee, who retired in 2013 after being a US Senator for 24 years, insisted that the Democrats will only be losing public support if they adopt, what he called, her "left-left" views as their own.

"She's new here, feeling her way around", said Representative Kurt Schrader (D., Ore.).

Her campaign failed to carry comp on its employees for a month, resulting in a fine by the state Workers' Compensation Board, according to several news reports.

Recently Ocasio-Cortez told Politico that she wasn't interested in backing progressive candidates against incumbent Democrats, insisting that she's "focused on my job". I think she has matured.
