Democrats Reportedly Trying to "Rein In" Ocasio-Cortez

13 January, 2019, 18:06 | Author: Regina Silva

The campaign for U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-New York, paid a $1,500 fine for lapsed workers' compensation coverage last spring.

What did Ocasio-Cortez say?

Also pictured is Rep. Dina Titus, D-Nev., right.

Asked if some of her policy proposals are unrealistic, Ocasio-Cortez, a Democrat who represents parts of the Bronx and Queens, told Cooper, "What's unrealistic is what we're living in right now", she said.

During this time, campaign staffers were not covered for injuries received on the job.

Last week, a conservative activist released an old video of Ocasio-Cortez dancing in college, apparently in an homage to the '80s classic The Breakfast Club, in an effort to humiliate the newly-sworn-in Congresswoman.

"But once you get to, like, the tippy-tops - on your 10 millionth dollar - sometimes you see tax rates as high as 60 or 70 percent", Ocasio-Cortez said. "More, please", a Republican Senate aide told DailyMail.

The top marginal tax rate in the United States was above 90 percent in much of the 1950s and early 1960s, and the rate was 70 percent as recently as 1980.That year, the 70-percent rate applied to income over $215,400 for married couples.

I think she has matured. She still has not answered whether she will follow through with her own advice to fellow lawmakers to "have some integrity" and forgo her paychecks during the partial government shutdown. The former vice-presidential nominee, who retired in 2013 after being a US Senator for 24 years, insisted that the Democrats will only be losing public support if they adopt, what he called, her "left-left" views as their own.

Her campaign failed to carry comp on its employees for a month, resulting in a fine by the state Workers' Compensation Board, according to several news reports.

Ocasio-Cortez shared with her more than 2 million Twitter followers that she'd vote against a Democratic rules package. "I'm a little confused why she's the thing".
