Dem lawmaker rips AOC for playing 'race card' in spat with Pelosi

Ocasio-Cortez and other progressives have previously called for the abolition of ICE, but her suggestion to dissolve the umbrella department that oversees numerous agencies - including the Federal Emergency Management Agency and Transportation Security Administration - would significantly alter the federal structure overseeing immigration enforcement, anti-terrorism and disaster management that was created after the September 11 attacks. At the core of the matter was that Rep. Pelosi disrespected the freshmen representatives, primarily about their massive following on social media.

"All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world, but they didn't have any following. They're four people - and that's how many votes they got", Pelosi told the newspaper.

Moderate members argued that it was important to pass a Senate version of the legislation when it appeared that the upper chamber would refuse to take up the House bill, while progressives railed against the process and insisted that lawmakers were not doing enough to negotiate for and ensure adequate protections for migrant children detained at the border. The liberal Democrats want to shut them down completely, not help sustain them.

During an interview with "Fox & Friends" Thursday morning, Kudlow had nothing but nice things to say about the Democratic freshman after she challenged Federal Reserve Chair Jay Powell on the Phillips Curve - an economic theory that suggests that low unemployment pushes wages up faster and accelerates inflation as a result - during a congressional hearing Wednesday. "We won't let that happen on our side of the aisle".

Tension between the House leader and the four women lawmakers of color - Reps. AOC claimed that the speaker seems hellbent on calling out four individuals in particular - herself, and Reps.

"A major "meow moment" brushing back in a huge catfight, really ridiculing them and they voted against the Democratic aid package". Members or staff who feel inclined to publicly criticize a Democratic colleague should "think twice, " she said, before adding: "Actually, don't do that: Think once".

Pelosi announced to House Democrats on Wednesday: "You got a complaint?" "The people suffered, our fearless men and women at Border Protection, the kids who these Democrats pretend they care so much about".

"They will have to learn to be effective legislators", he said.

Although Pelosi appeared intent on refocusing the party's attention on Thursday, Jayapal said Ocasio-Cortez's accusation that Pelosi works to "diminish progressive power" in the caucus struck a chord for her.

Rep. John Lewis, a veteran of the Civil Rights movement, added on Thursday that Ocasio-Cortez's remarks went "a little too far".

Ocasio-Cortez responded in an interview with The Washington Post: "When these comments first started, I kind of thought that she was keeping the progressive flank at more of an arm's distance in order to protect more moderate members, which I understood, " she said. "But the persistent singling out".

Pelosi said she was rebuking an "offensive tweet" from one of them.

Pelosi did not respond to a question about whether Chakrabarti should be sanctioned for his tweet. "I'm not going to be addressing it any further". "Hope you'll join us".
