Lieberman added in the interview the Democrats will lose voters in the long term if Ocasio-Cortez's ideas are endorsed. "This is basic stuff, especially if you hold yourself out to be the champion of workers".

Now, Democratic members of Congress are saying they're done with her "sniping" at their own party and aren't sure if her career in Congress will go too well if she keeps up the criticism.
