Liberal icon Maxine Waters, chair of the House Financial Services Committee is clashing with high-profile, left-leaning lawmakers who joined the panel earlier this year.

Waters is getting hammered by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other freshman ‘progressive/socialists’ for being too moderate.

The 81-year-old California representative and chair of the House Financial Services Committee has taken heat from the new freshmen for a variety of issues, who say that moderate Democrats who are friendly to businesses dominate the committee, Politico reported.

Some progressives have openly lamented the committee’s leanings toward more moderate, business-friendly Democrats who dominate its ranks — a dynamic largely outside of Waters’ control. Ocasio-Cortez vented at a Nov. 19 hearing on private equity that she was “quite upset” with softball questions that members on both sides of the aisle were tossing at representatives of leveraged buyout firms tied to mass layoffs at companies like Toys “R” Us.

Democratic California Rep. Katie Porter squabbles with Waters over committee procedures while freshman Democrats, including Ocasio-Cortez, refuse to support Waters over the Export-Import Bank and demand more time to weigh in on bills, The Daily Caller News Foundation reported.

“There’s sometimes been some tensions,” Ocasio-Cortez told Politico in an interview.

There has been a prioritization of “conservative seat needs” to protect members from swing states, Ocasio-Cortez told Politico.

Waters’s aides told Politico that her committee staff “put a lot of work into getting powerful witnesses to testify for a hearing examining private equity, for instance, only to have a significant portion of Dem members give industry a pass.”

Waters has also brought Wall Street executives to Capitol Hill to testify in hearings, giving members like Ocasio-Cortez a platform to go viral as she questions senior Trump administration officials or financers.

You just gotta love it! 😂
