Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Quotes 'Watchmen' on Twitter

House democrats are apparently so exasperated by newly elected New York Congresswoman, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, that they're willingly going on record saying they'd like to "rein" her in.

According to reports, the campaign was forced to pay a $1,500 fine for not providing the required insurance. Also pictured is Rep. Dina Titus, D-Nev., right.

Ocasio-Cortez, a self-described Democratic socialist, didn't flinch at the comment.

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

Just a few weeks into the new Congress, Ocasio-Cortez is already causing heartburn among centrist Democrats who are wary of her unapologetic proposal to raise the top marginal income tax rate to 70 per cent.

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. On Thursday, Lieberman, an Independent, spoke with Fox Business about the future of the Democratic party and his thoughts on the rising political star, who was sworn in last week along with a fresh crop of House Representatives.

"There's a difference between being an activist and a lawmaker in Congress", the source said.

Ocascio-Cortez previously responded to Lieberman's statement, writing on Twitter, "New party, who dis?".

"She's new here, feeling her way around", added Rep. Kurt Schrader, D-Ore. "She doesn't understand how the place works yet".

Ocasio-Cortez wrote on Twitter, suggesting that Lieberman's glory days are long gone.

Instead, the open downstate NY slot on the House Ways and Means Committee went to a moderate Democrat, Long Island Rep. Tom Suozzi, a former CPA, attorney and county executive. "But it's a good example of what I'm talking about, a bright shiny new object, came out of nowhere and surprised people when she beat a very experienced congressman", she told CNN in December.
