Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the youngest member of Congress at just 29 years old. She’s a freshman, having been elected in 2018.
As Joe Biden wryly pointed out, what she essentially did — given the voting tendencies of her district — was win a primary.
She has two committee assignments and four subcommittee assignments; one of those is on the House Financial Services Committee, a plum task for someone who claims to want to make student loans a key legislative priority. This is pretty typical stuff.
And yet, in a July 5 interview with “The New Yorker Radio Hour,” Ocasio-Cortez suspects she’s being given those assignments just to keep her busy and out of the way.
According to Fox News, Ocasio-Cortez thinks that assignments on active committees are meant to keep her from doing what she should be doing, which I guess is saving the world through viral videos or something? Not quite sure here.
