Ocasio-Cortez to join House panel overseeing financial sector


Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) is slated to join the committee leading the House’s oversight of U.S banks, lenders and financial markets.

Ocasio-Cortez has been recommended by Democratic leaders for a spot on the House Financial Services Committee, a Democratic source told The Hill on Tuesday. The full roster of Democrats joining the committee is expected to be released as soon as Tuesday night.

Ocasio-Cortez told Hill.TV in November that she has expressed interest in the Financial Services panel to the Democratic Steering and Policy Committee, which doles out seats on House committees. Politico reported last week that Ocasio-Cortez was “poised to win” a spot on the Financial Services panel.

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee, has pledged to fight against the Trump administration’s rollbacks of post-crisis bank rules. The assignment will give the influential Democratic freshman an powerful perch to push her party toward the left on critical financial issues.

While New Yorkers often land seats on the Financial Services panel, those who do are often more sympathetic Wall Street. Ocasio-Cortez, a Democratic-Socialist, often touts her refusal to accept corporate donations and criticizes colleagues with close ties to the financial sector.

Ocasio-Cortez spoke out against a GOP proposal to dismantle the 2010 Dodd-Frank Wall Street reform law in 2017, and supports reimposing a 1930s separation of investment and consumer banking. She’s also advocated for a drastic expansion of federal housing aid, a top priority for Waters.



Financial Services Committee led by people that have never had a job but living off the government.


Don’t worry about it! She’s an economics major and can easily oversee the banks. Her and Mad Max are going to grab the bull by the horns and push it into the ground - hope y’all are buying gold before the spot goes even higher.

Maxxine is the Joke OC is the punchline. The credibility of the committee no longer exists.


What makes them any different than the republicans that ran it before?

IQ, common sense, comprehension, lucidity, …


Pull up any video of Mad Max Waters and that should answer your querie. She gives developmentally disabled people a feeling of immense superiority.


Consciousness. … .
