Ocasio-Cortez is still running — after DC leadership

What does NY Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez mean for the country?

AOC — as she is known — has what many politicians don’t have: charisma and a plan, albeit a disastrous economic plan.

Her Green New Deal platform aims at eliminating carbon emissions in the US within 12 years and is partly funded by tax rates as high as 70 percent for the nation’s wealthiest.

Her idea of combating climate change with punitive tax rates is well received by the far left, which should not be a surprise, but AOC is not happy to stop there. She has taken to social media to push her idea further into the mainstream.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has her hands full with this freshman congresswoman. How she handles AOC will dictate plenty on AOC’s future. At 29 she is the youngest person ever in the House of Representatives.

Given her drive to chase Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell around Washington on Wednesday to get an audience with him — press in tow — tells you she has far bigger plans for herself than representing just her Brooklyn and Queens NY constituents.

With just days in office AOC has already made a name for herself and her placement on the House Financial Services committee should give her some more TV air time.

While AOC may be the new face of change in Washington, my guess is that some in the Democratic leadership are looking for someone to run against her in less than two years to get this stinging bee out of their bonnet.

However, by the next election rolls around she may already be running for the Senate from NY. Nothing will surprise me when it comes to AOC.

  1. AOC is like a new penny with a mouth that doesn’t stop. I really feel her off the wall comments/answers is her trying to be cute & she is a player, as you say for her “own” goals. Pelosi will not try to change her cause she causes upset which we all know Pelosi loves. But even new pennies get old & tarnish.
