Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has not yet been sworn into Congress, but shes already eyeing a seat at one of the most powerful House committees in charge of taxation laws.
The Democratic Socialists spokesperson confirmed to Vice News that she will seek a seat on the House Ways and Means committee, which is traditionally packed with seasoned legislators with experience in writing tax code.
Rep. Joe Crawley, the top Democrat who was unseated by Ocasio-Cortez this year, was among the members of the committee. She is eyeing the exact same seat that is customarily reserved for New York City.

Oh my, more of biting off more than she can chew so she can end up flat on her sorry ass.
The bug-eyed commie.
A Green New Deal?
...since I’m eyeing a vintage Ferrari and a custom 60 ft water going transport to get to my private island
with a 4 1/2 mile road course and factory trained female pit crew...???
...maybe we’ll just call it a wash.
People are underestimating this woman.
I am of two minds regarding AOC. One the one hand, giving a seat on a powerful committee to a proven idiot could cause severe harm to the United States. It reminds me of a YouTube video where some soldier in Africa hands his loaded AK-47 to a chimp. (Real or not, the image works.) On the other hand, she has turned out to be the most prolific gaff machine I have ever witnessed. The fact that the media portrays her as the new face of the Democratic party makes for wonderful and near universal GOP campaign material.
If the old, white, rich, elite Democrats, who spent a long, long lifetime climbing the ladder, let her have a seat among them, (thus shunting one of their own aside) why not turn over the entire apparatus to the new wave? Will they give in to her blackmail or will they try to shunt her aside? If it was twenty, or even ten, years ago, she’d be put in her place. (Of course, ten years ago she would never have been elected.) It’s a hard choice the old whiteys must make. It seems a lose/lose for them, regardless of what they do.
I’m not sure Ocasio-Cortez is smart enough to stack Lincoln Logs.
She ran saying she didn’t support Pelosi for Speaker. Maybe this is what Pelosi gave her for her support.
Maybe they should see if she can keep the tampon dispensers in the restrooms stocked first.....
Time to start a new country. Way past time.
perfect air head to represent the dems when it comes to finances.
This imbecile is headed for the WH
I hope she gets the most high profile job possible as the more she is in the spotlight the more embarrassing she will be for the Democrat party.
Gillibrand better watch her back.
“People are underestimating this woman”
Nope, she is a ditz. It’s the hardcore Socialist/ Marxist puppet masters propping her up that should not be underestimated.
The only good news for that about me is given it will be at least ten years for that to happen, I will be watching it play out from above.
I get your comment but look at the condition of this countries finances as a result of people who are supposedly well educated that have been running it.
AOC is a liberal educated which means idiot.
Anyone with a little common sense could do a better job then AOC and those in government now.
Credit goes to ballot harvesting by the fifth column.
