Ocasio-Cortez set to join Maxine Waters on key financial services committee

By Gregg Re | Fox News

Self-described socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez announced on Twitter late Tuesday that she will join California Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters on the influential House Financial Services Committee, which oversees Wall Street and the housing industry.

California Rep. Katie Porter, Michigan's Rashida Tlaib, Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, and Massachusetts Rep. Ayanna Pressley have also reportedly been tapped for the committee by Democratic House leaders, and a vote finalizing their appointments is expected within days.

"I am very grateful for the opportunity to sit on this committee as a freshman, and look forward to working under the leadership of @RepMaxineWaters!" Ocasio-Cortez wrote on Twitter late Tuesday. "Financial Services is one of just four exclusive committees in the House. It oversees big banks, lending, & the financial sector."

She added: "Personally, I’m looking forward to digging into the student loan crisis, examining for-profit prisons/ICE detention, and exploring the development of public & postal banking. To start."

  • Cruz 2016- a Constitutional Conservative at last!
I guess Pelosi is giving her free rein. The dem/coms are all in agreement that they want to dismantle the Constitution and it's getting more obvious by the day.
Principles matter. Words matter.

May God have mercy on our souls
In a time of universal deceit - telling the truth is a revolutionary act.

Can she even reconcile her checkbook.  Oh wait.  They just look on line and take the banks word for it these day's.

Why of course. Put the most economically incompetent on financial committees. People who can't even run their own finances...

Kind of like the UN voting to put Iran as the head of the human rights committee...

Stupid has consequence.

Politics is now dominated by colorful reality TV characters.

Competence is not expected or needed. Just entertainment.

Meanwhile Kevin McCarthy is removing Steve King from the Judiciary and Agricultural committees.

This will end well.
