Progressives To March On Nancy Pelosiís Office Demanding Key Committee Post For Cortez
Huffington Post ^ | 12/20/18 | Daniel Marans

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-Cortez’s June victory in the Democratic primary. “Now we need to see that energy translated to the most powerful committees in Congress.”

Democratic leaders are supportive of the creation of a committee, but not necessarily one with the strength Ocasio-Cortez envisions. Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Md.), the House majority leader-designate, said Wednesday that, unlike a previous iteration of the panel under the last Democratic majority, Ocasio-Cortez’s climate change committee would not have subpoena power.

She knows nothing and yet is a RAT expert. Has Pelosi stopped dancing yet?

Not organic. Her supporters don’t care if she’s on a committee.

No idea about dancing but AOC just may cause Nana to evict the worm and crawl inside the jug.

Funny thing is that occasional cortex is just as likely to vote down the leadership ideas as not progressive enough. :)

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.

I'm rooting for AOC on this. I hope a thousand angry lefties with bullhorns show up at Pelosi's door.

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.

They aren’t demanding she be Committee chairman...yet. Wait until the next Congress

They just want her on one of the powerful committees.
