AOC Is One of 'the Least Effective Members of Congress, Study Reveals
Ocasio-Cortez's Congress performance leaves a lot to be desired

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is one of the least effective members of the last Congress, a new survey from the nonpartisan Center for Effective Lawmaking found.

Despite Ocasio-Cortez's millions of followers and constant press attention, her performance in Congress leaves a lot to be desired.

AOC introduced a total of 21 bills that the center defined as "substantive," but it ends there.

According to the center, her legislation received no floor votes, no action in committees, and none have ever become law.

Alan Wiseman, a Vanderbilt political scientist and co-director of the center, told The New York Post:

"She introduced a lot of bills, but she was not successful at having them receive any sort of action in committee or beyond committee, and if they can’t get through committee, they cannot pass the House."

"It’s clear that she was trying to get her legislative agenda moving and engage with the lawmaking process," Wiseman added.

"But she wasn’t as successful as some other members were — even among [other] freshmen — at getting people to pay attention to her legislation."
