AOC is in the 1/5 bottom percentile of cosponsored bills submitted.

Numbers of bills cosponsored during a time of Trump/GOP treachery is hardly a reasonable metric of new Representative effectiveness. Even if other new legislators had cosponsored a larger number of bills (data you have not shown to be the case), that is not an indication of the value of those bills. One piece of important legislation that takes years to sell and pass could easily be more valuable to the nation than 100 cosponsored bills of little impact.

AOC has managed to gain publicity and support from many progressives and Democrats during her tenure. That is an accomplishment in these times that might be more valuable than all the bills she could ever cosponsor.

Sorry... your analysis is invalid.
