A spokeswoman for the NY state Workers' Compensation Board, Melissa Stewart, said Friday that Ocasio-Cortez's Democratic campaign lacked coverage from March 31 to April 30.

"This coverage is vital to ensuring workers are protected for on-the-job injuries".

But their frustration goes beyond that: Democratic leaders are upset that she railed against their new set of House rules on Twitter the first week of the new Congress.

Lieberman, who ran as the vice presidential nominee on Al Gore's unsuccessful ticket in 2000, told Fox Business Network on Thursday that he hopes Representative Alexandria Cortez-Ocasio (D-N.Y.) doesn't think she's the future of the Democratic Party. The former bartender, who joined a climate-change protest in Speaker Nancy Pelosi's office during her freshman congressional orientation, also demanded the creation of a specific committee to further the implementation of a so-called "green new deal", but was refused that as well. "She doesn't understand how the place works yet".

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard Says She Will Run for President in 2020
Gabbard moved to Hawaii when she was two and embraced Hinduism as a teenager and is well-versed in the scriptures, PTI reported. Her participation in the race will raise the profile of some important issues , for which libertarians should be glad.

According to the NYDN, a "Democratic campaign veteran scoffed that "it's not a great look" for Ocasio-Cortez that her campaign received a fine for not carrying workers' compensation coverage".

AOC unsheathed the quote from a character created by the British anarchist author in response to a Politico piece about older-guard Democrats' frustration with the outspoken new member of their House. For example, during a recent "60 Minutes" interview, she explained that being "morally right" is more important than being factually accurate. "She's gotten a lot of attention because she's different". I say, 'OK, this was clumsy.' and then I restate what my point was.

"Make no mistake, come January, in this committee the days of this committee weakening regulations and putting our economy once again at risk of another financial crisis will come to an end", she said in remarks that briefly roiled markets". But it's- it's not the same thing as- as the President lying about immigrants.
