Skip to comments.Progressives To March On Nancy Pelosiís Office Demanding Key Committee Post For Cortez
Posted on 12/20/2018 3:58:29 PM PST by Libloather
Representatives of 13 progressive organizations are hand-delivering over 150,000 petition signatures Thursday to the Capitol Hill office of House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (Calif.), demanding that she appoint Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) to the influential House Ways and Means Committee.
The in-person action, which the groups plan to livestream, is part of an unprecedented, months-long effort by activists to secure greater representation for progressive members of Congress on the influential money committees: Ways and Means, Energy and Commerce, Appropriations, and Financial Services.
The grassroots progressive movement is flexing more power than ever before, said Waleed Shahid, a spokesman for Justice Democrats, which is participating in the petition delivery and played a lead role in Ocasio-Cortezs June victory in the Democratic primary. Now we need to see that energy translated to the most powerful committees in Congress.

She knows nothing and yet is a RAT expert. Has Pelosi stopped dancing yet?
Shes a 20 something House freshman
Fun watching Pelosi deal with her ..
Not organic. Her supporters don’t care if she’s on a committee.
Tis will be good. Where’s the popcorn guy? Pelosi is going to tell her where to sheep and what color.
....”Has Pelosi stopped dancing yet?”
No idea about dancing but AOC just may cause Nana to evict the worm and crawl inside the jug.
If you dont have the money, just buy it. Then youll have it.. /end of lesson in Occasional Cortex economics.
Chief martini mixer?
Funny thing is that occasional cortex is just as likely to vote down the leadership ideas as not progressive enough. :)
Give Pelosi hell, she deserves it
Interesting to watch the Communist wing of the Democratic Party
trying to wag the dog
Is there a committee for remedial education
Chief martini mixer?
No. That’s too difficult for her. I suggest cleaning the men’s bathrooms.
Is there a bigger modern oxymoron than this ‘Justice Democrats’? They ain’t Democrats, either with a big ‘D’ or small ‘d’, they are totalitarians! The only justice that they recognize is that they impose upon others, making it more injustice than not!
So less than a month ago this genius was whining about not being able to afford an apartment in DC, but now wants to be in charge of a powerful committee? Sounds about right lol.
This is gonna be fun!
Say what you want about AOC, she's laying all her cards down on the table. She might be the only honest Democrat. She isn't BS'ing anyone about where she wants to take the party. And it's far, far to the left.
O Caso Cortando
They aren’t demanding she be Committee chairman...yet. Wait until the next Congress
They just want her on one of the powerful committees.
Put her on the committee in charge of radishes.
They put her office 2 doors down from Pelosi’s for a reason. Chica gonna get schooled, frequently. But will the lessons take? I doubt it, because...millennial.
RATs are all lying, stupid, hateful dumbarses.
