Her rise to stardom from New York City bartender to a congresswoman started when she unseated Democrat incumbent Joseph Crowley in a primary and then went on to win the seat during the midterms. Also pictured is Rep. Dina Titus, D-Nev., right.

"I'm sure Ms. Cortez means well, but there's nearly an outstanding rule: Don't attack your own people", veteran Missouri Rep. Emanuel Cleaver said.

"She's new here, feeling her way around", Schrader said.

The Democrat socialist has not responded to explain why she did not offer worker's compensation between March and April of previous year.

Just kidding, she'll keep on plugging away on the exact social and environmental reforms she has been, which will ultimately do more to save us than Joe Lieberman ever did.

Rep. Yvette Clarke (D-N.Y.) added, "I think she needs to give herself an opportunity to know her colleagues and to give herself a sense of the chemistry of the body before passing judgment on anyone or anything". "The so-called champion of workers, when given her own responsibility, is not following the law".

What is she - activist or lawmaker?

Ocasio-Cortez shared with her more than 2 million Twitter followers that she'd vote against a Democratic rules package.

Twitter, with its younger-than-1000-years-old demographic, doubled over with laughter at Ocasio-Cortez's clapback at the former Senator.

Senator Joe Lieberman campaigns for vice president during a rally at California State University at Fresno in 2000.

"With all respect, I certainly hope she's not the future, and I don't believe she is", Lieberman said on a Fox show hosted by Neil Cavuto.

Lawmakers have been quietly criticizing the NY newcomer and are hoping to rein in her criticism of those in her own party, Politico reported, citing almost 20 lawmakers and aides.
