Some congressional Democrats are already frustrated with upstart freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's tendency to butt heads with members of her own party, according to a number of lawmakers and aides.
The 29-year-old Democratic Socialist's campaign "did not have the required workers' compensation coverage from March 31, 2018, to April 30, 2018, and was issued a final penalty of $1,500, which was paid", Melissa Stewart, director of public information at the state's Workers Compensation Board told the New York Daily News.
Meanwhile, Politico ran an article today claiming "Exasperated Democrats try to rein in Ocasio-Cortez", for which AOC had yet another ideal response, not just shutting down the sentiment but also solidifying her nerd cred for the foreseeable future. "She doesn't understand how the place works yet".More news: Daunting first round assignments for Kyrgios and Tomic
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's journey to Washington began in the Bronx, N.Y., where she was born to Puerto Rican parents.
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.

Additionally, Ocasio-Cortez accused: President Trump "he has a proven track record of discrimination against anybody who's really non-white in the United States" predating his 2016 election to the White House.
"I think that there's a lot of people more concerned about being precisely, factually, and semantically correct than about being morally right", she told host Anderson Cooper.
Politico noted that Ocasio-Cortez's star power includes being better known by millions of Americans than longtime House Democrats, including Nancy Pelosi and John Lewis. "My life, and just the campaign's life, changed overnight", she said during an interview.More news: Google Assistant can now translate conversations, book hotel rooms and more
