Self-proclaimed Socialist (if she even knows what the word means) Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has won her seat in Washington, DC and no doubt the people who elected her are going to end up regretting that decision. However, already she's not only been one to sign onto not electing Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) as Speaker of the House, but it's been reported that she was involved in a "closed door fight" with Rep. Frank Pallone (D-NJ).
According to Politico:
New Jersey Rep. Frank Pallone, incoming chairman of the powerful Energy and Commerce Committee — backed by a number of other committee members — slammed the creation of the new climate panel, according to multiple sources in the room. Pallone argued that his committee and other existing panels within the House could take on the issue aggressively.
But Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.), Rep.-elect Joe Neguse (Colo.) and some of the other progressive incoming lawmakers fought back, saying they ran on the issue and needed to do it. Ocasio-Cortez earlier this week pushed for a “Green New Deal” as she backed more than 200 young protesters at House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s office.
Of course, Ocasio-Cortez later tweeted out, “I never even [had] a direct interaction with him today, and by direct interaction, I mean I didn’t share a conversation. I did say hello and he is very kind.”
This is completely false - I never even have a direct interaction with him today.

However, a spokesperson for Ocasio-Cortez told Politico, “We’re not going to comment on the internal discussions of a meeting.”
No, of course not. Saving face, are we?
She has already popped on the radar in DC during a protest outside Pelosi's office.
So, she's pushing for the not existent climate change nonsense. That's what the ignorant people in New York voted her in to promote and go after. I'd really love to see her upset the Democrat's apple cart, but I'm pretty sure they will put her in line fairly quickly, or we may end up reading about her in the funny papers, if you catch my drift.
I think she's another pretty face put into office only because of that for the most part since she can't articulate any of her positions with any amount of logic, but she seems dumber than a box of hammers, and that means she can be easily controlled. After all, this is a woman who couldn't seem to find an apartment on a $174,000 annual salary and who doesn't understand the huge expenses she will be burdening people with concerning universal healthcare and college.
I'm positive that whatever she was voicing in the "closed door fight" was more of her idiotic, bewildering blather that she has presented to the public since her campaign began.
