Here's How AOC Responded to Getting Booed After Voting for Pelosi

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) had a message for the Republicans who booed her after she voted for Nancy Pelosi as speaker of the House: "Don’t hate me cause you ain’t me, fellas."

 “Over 200 members voted for Nancy Pelosi today, yet the GOP only booed one: me,” the 29-year-old tweeted along with a video.

While Ocasio-Cortez joined climate change activists in a protest in Pelosi’s office to call for Democrats to take up a Green New Deal, her support of the California Democrat Thursday was expected.

"All the challenges to Leader Pelosi are coming from her right, in an apparent effort to make the party even more conservative and bent toward corporate interests," Ocasio-Cortez wrote on Twitter in November. 

"Hard pass. So long as Leader Pelosi remains the most progressive candidate for Speaker, she can count on my support."

She followed up, however, by acknowledging that Democratic party leadership should “evolve.”

“I agree that our party should, and must, evolve our leadership,” she said. “But changed leadership should reflect an actual, evolved mission; namely, an increased commitment to the middle + working class electorate that put us here. Otherwise it’s a just new figure with the same problems.”

Ocasio-Cortez broke with Pelosi Thursday by voting 'no' against a Democratic rules package. Two other progressives also opposed the rules: Hawaii Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard and California Rep. Ro Khanna.

On Wednesday, Ocasio-Cortez vowed to join Khanna to oppose the so-called "pay-go" rule included in the rules package, supported by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. That rule requires that any new mandatory spending for entitlements or tax cuts be offset by other separate revenue increases (such as tax hikes) or budget-cutting measures so that the new spending does not expand the federal deficit.

The democratic socialist characterized the rules package on Wednesday as a "dark political maneuver designed to hamstring progress on healthcare" and other legislation.
