The "Machshfa" & The "Klafta" On The House Financial Services Committee

"Who Dis?"

The Machshifah" (Witch) Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has secured a spot on the House Financial Services Committee, a panel chaired by fellow progressive Maxine Waters, The "Klafteh" (Dog)  that oversees the financial services industry.

Ocasio-Cortez confirmed her placement in a tweet on Tuesday night, writing: “Financial Services is one of just four exclusive committees in the House. It oversees big banks, lending, & the financial sector. 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!”
Waters and Ocasio-Cortez, a democratic socialist from the Bronx, will likely increase scrutiny of financial institutions on the committee.
The freshman congresswoman already has her sights set on several issues, she said in a tweet on Tuesday.
“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,” she wrote.
