Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her Chief of Staff Saikat Chakrabarti just returned from New House Member Orientation. The week in Washington D.C. was supposed to teach them some early ins and outs about being in Congress and instruct Chakrabarti how to become a chief of staff. Instead, Ocasio-Cortez made headlines by attacking Amazon and its new Queens, New York, headquarters, by visiting a Green New Deal sit-in at Nancy Pelosi’s office, and lighting up Instagram with her insider insights. According to Chakrabarti, joining Congress is daunting but Ocasio-Cortez is entering office the same way she ran: with courage and conviction. Chakrabarti says they’re pushing the chips in every time to make change.
