America's youngest congresswoman launches term with radical plan

America's youngest congresswoman launches term with radical plan

It landed her on the front page of the New York Daily News, an image of which Ocasio-Cortez was quick to retweet.

Ocasio-Cortez's comments come in response to a wave of criticism aimed toward Tlaib, who spoke candidly during a reception for progressive group MoveOn.org.

The New York lawmaker, who rose to prominence past year after beating a 10-term incumbent in a Democratic primary, posted on Twitter on Friday a brief video of herself dancing outside of her office with a huge grin while the song "War" by Edwin Starr is heard playing in the background.

Ms. Ocasio-Cortez's naïveté about basic economics is alarming, yet she is still being interviewed on 60 Minutes, a program considered a highly respected forum on the issues of the day, especially by leftists. Why?

The victory has made her a key figure of the liberal wing of the party, and Ocasio-Cortez has demonstrated a couple of times that she can respond swiftly to her detractors. In a video that went viral, she used an expletive while vowing that the Democrat-controlled House would focus their efforts on removing Trump from office.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the 29-year-old congresswoman, is from New York's 14th congressional district and was born on October 13, 1989.

Her response stems from footage unearthed from her college days, advanced by some rightward voices on social media, to try to disparage or embarrass her.

She's lately been a fixation for some on the right - which has been struggling when it comes to reaching and commanding support among millennials, particularly those veering toward Democratic socialism. "So many people sacrificed so much for this to happen ― my mother most of all", Ocasio-Cortez wrote. "She did whatever she needed to do, for me. I mean, I think no one expects me to be anything but myself, the girl from southwest Detroit with a little sass and attitude". "What if you know that the Congressman dancing?" She said that she "wouldn't use that language", but noted that "it's [not] anything worse than anything what the President has said". To which the young congresswoman says, "If that's what radical means, call me a radical".

Ocasio-Cortez, the youngest woman ever elected to Congress, called the president, "a symptom of a problem".
