Democratic superstar Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will officially join Rep. Maxine Waters’ Financial Services Committee; a key oversight panel with vast control of Wall Street, the banking industry, and the US housing market.

“I am very grateful for the opportunity to sit on this committee as a freshman, and look forward to working under the leadership of @RepMaxineWaters!” posted Cortez on social media Tuesday evening.

“Personally, I’m looking forward to digging into the student loan crisis, examining for-profit prisons/ICE detention, and exploring the development of public & postal banking. To start,” she added.

Senior Democrats and party officials are reportedly attempting to “rein-in” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez after a series of critiques against her centrist colleagues; telling the self-described Democratic-Socialist to stop “attacking her own people.”

“Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is already making enemies in the House Democratic Caucus — and some of its members are mounting an operation to bring the anti-establishment, democratic socialist with 2.2 million Twitter followers into the fold,” writes Politico.

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

Cortez found herself coming under fire from The View’s Whoopi Goldberg this week, with the left-wing comedian telling the new congresswoman to “sit down and listen.”

CORTEZ CONFUSION: Cortez Cites PARKS, ‘Eating Sandwiches’ as 'Examples of Socialism'

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.21.18

Liberal superstar Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez left American voters scratching their heads this week; bizarrely citing National Parks and eating breakfast sandwiches as examples of Democratic Socialism.

Cortez posted the strange comments on social media after returning from a “few days off” spent at Acadia National Park; citing the nature preserve and “supporting worker-owned businesses” as American “examples of Democratic Socialism.”

Cortez’ comments come just days after she came under fire for banning press and journalists from a series of town hall events; adding the speaking engagements were considered “sanctuary spaces.”
