Ocasio-Cortez campaign fined by feds

The vast accumulation of wealth at the top is matched by inordinate concentrations of political power

"With all respect", he told FOX Business' Neil Cavuto on Thursday, "I certainly hope she's not the future and I don't believe she is". "She's gotten a lot of attention because she's different".

Last year, Ocasio-Cortez was also mocked after lamenting the shuttering of a coffee shop in NY, even though it closed its doors thanks to the wage hike in the state - a policy that she supports.

'If you look at the majority of new Democrats in the House, ' he said, 'they tend to be - I say, center-left. and that is because they had to be center-left to win some of those competitive swing districts that they took from Republicans'. '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'.

AOC unsheathed the quote from a character created by the British anarchist author in response to a Politico piece about older-guard Democrats' frustration with the outspoken new member of their House.

The failure to provide the coverage to campaign staff is particularly awkward for Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic socialist who rose to stardom after unseating top Democratic Rep. Joe Crowley with a campaign theme of improving conditions for the working class.

Indian cricket team does not support views of Hardik, Rahul: Kohli
The controversy has arisen in the build-up to the first of India's three one-day internationals against Australia on Saturday. Kohli also said that what happened in the show was not acceptable and individual opinions are not the view of the India team.

Since upsetting six-term incumbent Joe Crowley in a primary last summer and winning election to Crowley's old seat in November, Ocasio-Cortez has used her huge social-media following to chastise fellow Democrats she believes are insufficiently progressive and too beholden to the antiquated establishment.

In November, Ocasio-Cortez, 29, became the youngest woman ever elected to Congress.

Politico reported on the effort to rein in Ocasio-Cortez, described by some 20 Democrat lawmakers and aides as "part carrot, part stick: Some lawmakers with ties to Ocasio-Cortez are hoping to coax her into using her star power to unite Democrats and turn her fire on Republicans".

Senator Joe Lieberman campaigns for vice president during a rally at California State University at Fresno in 2000.
