Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Hires Marijuana Policy Expert as an Advisor

Watchmen

"Time to walk the walk", Ocasio-Cortez wrote on Twitter.

"Some moderate Democrats have privately raised concerns that they'll be targeted by the former bartender-turned-progressive icon, whose willingness to challenge her party's establishment propelled her to Congress and the national spotlight", Politico said. "That doesn't mean all $10 million are taxed at an extremely high rate, but it means that as you climb up this ladder you should be contributing more".

While Riffle is being brought on to help Ocasio-Cortez with all issues, she's also made it clear she is in favor of marijuana legalization.

She floated the idea during an interview on the CBS show "60 Minutes", which will be shown on Sunday.

The new lawmaker calls the plan the "Green New Deal". He frequently voted along Republican ideology lines, and post-retirement from the Senate, served as head counsel for the white collar criminal defense and investigations practice at a law firm that did extensive work for Donald Trump and then later failed to mention that as a conflict of interest when necessary. In 2019, the 37-percent rate applies to income over $612,350 for a married couple filing jointly.

The fine is awkward for Ocasio-Cortez, who took the seat of top Democratic Rep. Joe Crowley with a campaign theme of improving conditions for the working class during the November midterm elections. "I think every creative solution needs to be on the table", Pressley told The Hill.

"With all respect, I certainly hope she's not the future and I don't believe she is", he said. She still has not answered whether she will follow through with her own advice to fellow lawmakers to "have some integrity" and forgo her paychecks during the partial government shutdown. "It's not the same thing, at all", she said.

The assignment, which lawmakers say they expect her to receive, might pit the 29-year-old politician not only against banks - a major local industry in her state, but also potentially against business-friendly Democrats who have backed financial deregulation.
