    I honestly don’t know if you can lay this at her feet. She has a staff and someone didn’t do their due diligence in setting up the business end of it properly.

    This is someone who has never had employees and I think we have to cut her some slack. It is not hypocrisy, it is not having people around you who know the basics.

    The problem has not been show to be deliberate.

    Her staffers failed to do their job.

    It will be corrected.

    Yup, reasonable learning curve, and she is not saluting white supremacy.

    I wonder if she would have known about it if she did not boycott the Freshman orientation.

    I believe this was her campaign, so it would be prior to being elected.

    I wonder how much the opposition research on Cortez is costing.

    So far they've "caught" her.

    Wearing woman's clothing.

    Carrying a hand bag.

    Being politically incorrect.

    Wondering about paying rent in DC.

    Dancing.

    And now her miniscule $194000 primary campaign missing a monthly payment on workers comp and paying the appropriate fine.

    More revelations of Trumps incompetence and corruption.

    Republicans - look at that shiny thing over there!

    And you forgot the big one -- espousing hard-core socialism (vs. our current soft-core socialism). She is a fun personality, which is why she got elected; and you noted some things about that personality . . . yet, you omitted the only thing about her that really matters to our nation, her desire to turn our country into a socialist s***hole.

    Hard-core socialism? Seems like a bit of an exageration.

    BTW If you edit your post immediately you can probably still avoid a message from the admin.

    No dear. Like Venezuela and Mexico. Speaking of Switzerland, it has a very decentralized government, with most of the power -- including taxation and government control -- left to its 23 cantons (states).

    Nah. Let them send me a message. I will be OK. Thanks for the heads up though.

    I'm not your dear.
    Mexico isn't socialist and it's hilarious that folks want to point to a third world country like Venezuela that has a one trick pony economy rather than the numerous successful European countries. It's almost as if they don't understand socialism.

    And nearly everything OAC is advocating. It's almost as if socialism and small government can coexist.

    Looks like it. Looks like they didn't have the coverage for a month and they got fined $1500.

    If that doesn't destroy Ocasio-Cortez's political future forever I don't know what will. She is the biggest threat the GOP and Conservatives have ever faced. It's astounding the amount of sheer power that a freshman representative wields and so it's pretty important to take her down a peg or two or all the way.
