Joe Lieberman, 76, Says AOC, 29, Isn't The Future Of Democratic Party

Donald Trump

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. In truth, AOC is causing far more problems for the Democratic majority than the opposition Republicans. "She's gotten a lot of attention because she's different". "We just don't need sniping in our Democratic Caucus".

Some House Democrats have been unhappy with progressive Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's resistance to falling in line with her fellow party members, particularly her threats to support primary challenges against incumbents, Politico reported Friday.

Then along came Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez - and her social-media megaphone.

'The so-called champion of workers, when given her own responsibility, is not following the law...' Ocasio-Cortez shared with her more than 2 million Twitter followers that she'd vote against a Democratic rules package.


Veteran Democratic members suspected Ocasio-Cortez was behind a siable online campaign to convince Speaker Nancy Pelosi to give her the plum appointment.

Some lawmakers are trying to convince Ocasio-Cortez to use her influence to unite Democrats, while others have warned her that she's headed for a lonely tenure in Congress if she treats her more moderate colleagues as enemies, the report said. Rank and file are peeved that there's a grassroots movement to try to win her a top committee post they feel she doesn't deserve.

Ocasio-Cortez also advocates for an ambitious "Green New Deal" that calls for a transition to a 100 percent renewable energy system and the complete replacement of America's power grid as a means of generating jobs and saving the natural environment. Lacy Clay (D-Mo.), a senior Financial Services Committee lawmaker "Time will tell, and this one term will tell us a lot about her abilities as a legislator".
