We electrified the nation.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic Socialist elected to New York's 14th Congressional District last month, criticized the Trump administration on Monday for its immigration policies, tweeting that this "Admin has been criminal from the start".

Rep. -elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) on Sunday referred to "death panels", which was popularized nearly a decade ago by Sarah Palin, saying they exist in the private health insurance market.

Rep. -elect Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez got into a Twitter spat with former Gov. Mike Huckabee - and then went after his daughter.

"We did it when no one else thought we could".

Meanwhile, Ocasio-Cortez also expressed frustration that Congress can offer cheap health care benefits to its own members yet "would deny other people affordability that they themselves enjoy".

While speaking at a press conference about her radical Green New Deal proposal on Friday, Ocasio-Cortez spoke of how Americans have had a history of defying expectations through hard work and perseverance. In a tweet, the NY freshman lawmaker-elect wrote that her health care as a waitress was "more than TWICE" as high as what she would pay upon taking office as a congresswoman next month.

And she defended her position, tweeting, "A Green New Deal will take a level of ambition + innovation on the scale of the moon landing. That's what we did when so many of us won an election this year", she said. "We've been done it before, and can do it again", Ocasio-Cortez replied. "She's much better at it", she posted on her Twitter account.

We are looking forward to the change Ocasio-Cortez will bring to D.C.
