Ocasio-Cortez criticized after failing to provide workers’ compensation coverage

Donald Trump

As reported by The New York Daily News on Thursday, Ocasio-Cortez's campaign has been hit with a New York state fine for failing to carry workers' compensation coverage.

Some congressional Democrats are already frustrated with upstart freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's tendency to butt heads with members of her own party, according to a number of lawmakers and aides.

Ocasio-Cortez, who at 29 became the youngest woman to be sworn into Congress, had the flawless millennial four-word response to the criticism: "New party, who dis?" She's repeatedly stated her support for legalization and advocated to fix the harms caused by the War on Drugs.

Ocasio-Cortez hasn't proposed any legislation directly related to marijuana yet, although she has only been in Congress for like two weeks now.

Now, Democratic members of Congress are saying they're done with her "sniping" at their own party and aren't sure if her career in Congress will go too well if she keeps up the criticism.

She floated the idea during an interview on the CBS show "60 Minutes", which will be shown on Sunday.

Ms. Ocasio-Cortez, who is extremely active on social media, has yet to respond to the embarrassing report.

The New York democratic socialist would be a thorn in the side of Wall Street, which has seen its regulatory burden lowered since Donald Trump became president, Politico reported.

"This is a disgrace", she wrote on Twitter. "It's not the same thing, at all", she said.

"Some moderate Democrats have privately raised concerns that they'll be targeted by the former bartender-turned-progressive icon, whose willingness to challenge her party's establishment propelled her to Congress and the national spotlight", Politico said.

"She's new here, feeling her way around", added Rep. Kurt Schrader (D-Ore.).

"I think that there's a lot of people more concerned about being precisely, factually, and semantically correct than about being morally right", she told host Anderson Cooper.
