Ocasio-Cortez criticized after failing to provide workers’ compensation coverage

On Friday, CNN political analyst Joan Walsh responded to a Politico report claiming that "exasperated" Democrats are working to rein in Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez by saying it was the Democrats, not the young Congresswoman, who was being "juvenile".

According to reports, the campaign was forced to pay a $1,500 fine for not providing the required insurance.

Ocasio-Cortez hasn't proposed any legislation directly related to marijuana yet, although she has only been in Congress for like two weeks now.

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

Ocasio-Cortez, a first time candidate, delivered a shocking upset a year ago when she ousted 10-term incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley in New York's 14th congressional district.

In a comparison that Ocasio-Cortez would surely hate, politicos have pointed out that the NY rep. has "Trumpian" tendencies. "We just don't need sniping in our Democratic Caucus". "There's a difference between being an activist and a lawmaker in Congress". He frequently voted along Republican ideology lines, and post-retirement from the Senate, served as head counsel for the white collar criminal defense and investigations practice at a law firm that did extensive work for Donald Trump and then later failed to mention that as a conflict of interest when necessary.

Venezuela's Maduro starts new term shunned by global community
Maduro has meanwhile threatened "diplomatic measures" against his regional detractors if they refuse to recognise his re-election. State TV showed Maduro arriving at the Supreme Court where he is took the oath of office from Chief Justice Maikel Moreno.

"I think we have a decisive mandate from this electorate, this 116th Congressional class to be bold".

Ocasio-Cortez followers were there to applaud the tweet, supporting the idea of Lieberman and his views being out of date with even more jabs and memes.

"I don't know enough about her to be able to determine if she's going to be a good member or what", said Rep.

Her chief of staff also fired back at House Democratic lawmakers who spoke to Politico about Ocasio-Cortez.

"She's new here, feeling her way around", Rep. Kurt Schrader (D-OR) said. "It's not the same thing, at all", she said.
