Strikingly, the scene from the comic book series from which the quote is taken occurs in a prison cafeteria-a potentially provocative, though perhaps fluid, metaphor for what Congress has become to many lawmakers.

Ocasio-Cortez, a self-described Democratic socialist, didn't flinch at the comment.

Former Democratic vice presidential candidate and general curmudgeon Joe Lieberman is a former Senator best known for bucking his party by supporting conservative positions. "She doesn't understand how the place works yet". Back home in NY, she has stoked opposition to a deal with Amazon to set up offices in Queens, putting pressure on Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio, both Democrats, to justify corporate incentives. "You're locked up in here with ME'".

Many Windows 10 machines, such as laptops, have been equipped with relatively small solid-state drives as a cost-saving measure. To make sure this doesn't happen again, Microsoft needs a certain amount of "reserved storage " for future updates.

Joe Lieberman doubled down on his suggestion that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is not the future of the Democratic Party. The former bartender, who joined a climate-change protest in Speaker Nancy Pelosi's office during her freshman congressional orientation, also demanded the creation of a specific committee to further the implementation of a so-called "green new deal", but was refused that as well.

"Time to walk the walk", Ocasio-Cortez wrote on Twitter. On Thursday, Lieberman, an Independent, spoke with Fox Business about the future of the Democratic party and his thoughts on the rising political star, who was sworn in last week along with a fresh crop of House Representatives. 'Honestly, if the Democrats had 3 more of her, Americans would run away so fast that we'd have a power monopoly until she's Lieberman's age'.

Velázquez told Politico that the two shared a "long, long conversation" about the dynamics of Congress and Washington, and how there shouldn't be a "litmus test" for each district, and advised Ocasio-Cortez to think twice before backing primary challenges against her colleagues. "We will be one of them".
