Alexandria O-Cortez Says This Is What’s Wrong with the Electoral System


Former bartender, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hasn’t been working and is trying to survive until she gets her nice salary as a U.S. congresswoman in January.

The Socialist It Girl told The New York Times in an interview Thursday that she will need to wait for her congressional salary to kick in before she can rent an apartment in D.C.

She explained that the transition period will be “very unusual because I can’t really take a salary. I have three months without a salary before I’m a member of Congress. So, how do I get an apartment? Those little things are very real.”

She should have thought about that! Her lack of foresight isn’t the government’s problem. This is why she shouldn’t be in Congress making decisions about how our money is used.

Ocasio-Cortez also told the Times that she had saved money before leaving her job at a restaurant and had planned accordingly with her partner. She is working it out so what’s the problem? That is what she is supposed to do.

Aside from savings, there are such things as loans. Would she like a paycheck before she starts work as the daftest woman in Congress? She is a socialist so there’s little doubt that is what she expects.

As for this being what’s wrong with the electoral system, we wouldn’t know where to begin.  The same goes for her leading. The words “down the garden path” come to mind.

Being out of work, living on savings, scrimping and saving, all that is as American as Apple Pie and Motherhood. Most US companies (including many so-called Left/prog companies) typically provide zero job security for their minions and slaves, and are always ready to ship jobs out to former British colonies full of starving workers, to reduce wage costs. Most US companies can indeed be seen as effective enemies of those on the bottom. Company policies do need some oversight and regulation to help their best workers. Yet Ocasio-Cortez constantly parrots rote hate-filled “class struggle” Marxist ideas that have only brought worsening conditions, pet-eating, mass imprisonment of dissidents, genocide, and societal disaster to all. When she starts raking in the big bucks as a Senator, I’m sure we’ll hear a lot more useless, dangerous Marxist rhetoric coming from this person.
