Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the youngest woman ever elected to Congress, hit back at the House Republicans who booed her when she voted for Nancy Pelosi to become House speaker.
Ocasio-Cortez, 29, was elected to represent New York’s 14th Congressional District in the November midterms, defeating 10-term Democrat incumbent Joe Crowley in the primary last June and Republican Anthony Pappas in the November election.
When she rose to vote and voice her support for Pelosi becoming speaker, some GOP members booed and groaned, treatment her other Democrat colleagues did not receive.
“Over 200 members voted for Nancy Pelosi today, yet the GOP only booed one: me,” Ocasio-Cortez later tweeted. “Don’t hate me cause you ain’t me, fellas.”

and Republicans have acted toward the, “Issues of the People”.
Progressives do not need to spend 4 hours every day calling Big Money donors. Progressives can spend that time out in the public talking with the People and taking their small campaign donations.
The current New Democrat Speaker of the House represents corporate Big Money not the People.

granted, just because you voted for Quisling doesn’t make you a fascist, but every unchallenged collaboration makes the next one easier.

Don’t understand the “love” on this post.
One of 1st votes if FOR Pelosi?
“We’re about to have an election in which Incompetent A is going to be contesting with Incompetent B when both of them have demonstrated nothing remotely like any shred of adequacy to the scope of the problems we face.”

chooses her battles with care….
Voting against Pelosi would have been fruitless, and I suspect
there exists an “understanding” between then for the moment….
