And establishment Democrats are beginning to become annoyed with her. 'Honestly, if the Democrats had 3 more of her, Americans would run away so fast that we'd have a power monopoly until she's Lieberman's age'. You don't get picked for committees by who your grass-roots [supporters] are'.

"I don't know enough about her to be able to determine if she's going to be a good member or what", said Rep. The former bartender, who joined a climate-change protest in Speaker Nancy Pelosi's office during her freshman congressional orientation, also demanded the creation of a specific committee to further the implementation of a so-called "green new deal", but was refused that as well.
