Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez joins House Financial Services Committee

Joe Lieberman takes another dig at Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

The panel will be chaired by Rep. Maxine Waters, California Democrat.

Lobbyists have long referred to the committee as the ATM because lawmakers who sit on it are known for their fundraising prowess.

Ocasio-Cortez, a rising star in the Democratic Party who identifies as a democratic socialist, shunned corporate campaign donations during her run for office and has criticized Democrats for supporting deregulation.

The powerful committee also oversees the US housing market, insurance and worldwide finance sectors, among other areas.

She added: "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".

Ocasio-Cortez's pledge to gang bang the progressive agenda comes in the transcript of an extensive interview with the Post, in which she was asked about "conservative media" setting her up as "another boogeyman on the left".

Bernard Tomic beats Nick Kyrgios using cheeky serve tactic

She became the youngest woman elected to Congress, representing New York's 14th congressional district in the Bronx and Queens after upsetting a longtime Democratic incumbent.

But despite Trump's refusal to even entertain a question about her remark, Ocasio-Cortez seems to be calling it a victory.

"That doesn't mean all $10 million are taxed at an extremely high rate, but it means that as you climb up this ladder you should be contributing more", she said.

The 29-year-old Democratic socialist claimed on Twitter that she understood Trump "like the back of my hand", comparing him to men she encountered bartending in NY.

A few sentences later, she said, "So enjoy being exhausted for the next two years while we run train on the progressive agenda".
