“COMPLETE FRAUD!” House Dems Are Done With Ocasio-Cortez, “Peers Do Not Take Her Seriously”

Well, it’s certainly not a good day to be freshman Democrat Rep. AOC.

Not only do House Dems speak poorly of her, but they claim she’s a “complete fraud” who is not taken seriously.

Here’s the scoop, via Fox News:

House Democrats and their aides are quickly losing patience with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez over her office’s nonstop sparring with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other long-serving members, suggesting the speaker’s dismissive comments toward her may represent the view of a growing section of the caucus.

“She is a complete fraud,” one senior Democratic source told Fox News on Friday, succinctly summing up members’ frustration.

The last straw, for some, was the lawmaker’s claim that Pelosi was uniquely disrespectful to minority congresswomen. One senior lawmaker, who is black, scorched Ocasio-Cortez on Thursday for allegedly using the race card against the speaker, calling her comments “so inappropriate.” Some lawmakers have even turned the tables, arguing that a group aligned with her is targeting black lawmakers for potential primary challenges in questioning those comments.

“Her peers do not take her seriously,” the senior Democratic source said Friday, adding: “They think it is absurd to call the speaker racist. Offensive and absurd.”

The source said Ocasio-Cortez, who won her seat after a stunning primary victory over longtime House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley, has “no power” — despite her immense Twitter following and unique ability to at times command the news cycle.

“She is a nobody. She is a freshman member of Congress with no power. She is not worth the speaker’s brainpower,” the source said — accusing her of starting “needless distractions from serious issues,” and skipping meetings and conference calls in favor of media interviews, tweets and “glamour.”

Ocasio-Cortez’s defense of the struggling Department of Veterans Affairs proves, beyond all doubt, that she is too far gone.

One person even noted that AOC is “disconnected from reality.”

From Free Beacon:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) reinforced her opposition to reforming the Department of Veterans Affairs on Saturday, calling it a “myth” that the system was broken and in need of reform.

Ocasio-Cortez pledged at a town hall a week ago that she would fight bipartisan efforts to reform the scandal-plagued VA health system.

“If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” she said in remarks reported on by the Washington Free Beacon last week. “The idea that this thing that isn’t broken, this thing that provides the highest quality care to our veterans somehow needs to be fixed, optimized, tinkered with until you don’t even recognize it anymore.”

Ocasio-Cortez acknowledged the criticism her opposition to VA reform had received, but doubled down on her defense of the status quo at the agency, according to video of the Queens town hall captured by America Rising.

Instead of “protecting the VA” how about protecting the veterans they are supposed to serve?

The VA isn’t being starved of funds.

How is it possible that @AOC has this so completely wrong?

Only explanation is that she’s lying. The VA lacks ZERO funding. ZERO. They have more money than they know what to do with.

Her intelligence is a myth.

As a disabled veteran who lives in constant debilitating pain, I can say with 100% certainty that the VA is a disgrace. It took over a year for me to be put into “physical therapy” after having my spine fused, and they literally gave up because I didnt show improvement.

They want us to believe it’s all fine and dandy because this is what “Medicare for all” will likely be similar to.
