It seems Congrescritter-elect Crazy Eyes is at it again. Excerpt:
Democratic Socialist darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hasn’t even been sworn into office yet and she’s already shaking things up in Washington, D.C. Scratch that. She hasn’t even been sworn in as a Congresswoman yet and she’s already making demands of her fellow legislators…before meeting and working with them.
First, she complained that she couldn’t find adequate housing that she could afford. Then, she complained about health insurance as a means of advocating for Medicare For All. And who could forget her crazy comparisons between the Central American caravan and the Holocaust? Or that she didn’t know what the three branches of government are?
Now, she’s telling her colleagues that they need to pay staffers a living wage:
This week I went to dive spot in DC for some late night food. I chatted up the staff.
SEVERAL bartenders, managers, & servers *currently worked in Senate + House offices.*
This is a disgrace. Congress of ALL places should raise MRAs so we can pay staff an actual DC living wage.

Hasn’t anybody yet told her that hypocrisy is not only not disqualifying for Congress, it’s practically a requirement?
Now, Ms. Ocasio-Cortez will be being paid $174,000 a year as a member of Congress, starting in January. Will she, like a good little socialist, take only what salary her living expenses require and donate the rest to her staff, to take them closer to a “living wage,” whatever that is? Granted the Imperial City is a pretty damned expensive place to live, but there’s no reason it should be; Harry Truman (a Democrat, but one who probably wouldn’t recognize what his party has become) said you can’t get rich in politics unless you’re a crook.
He was right.
Dan Quayle once misspelled “potato” and was castigated as a moron forever more. Karla Marx here flunks Civics 101 on national news daily and is still a darling of the socialist left. Go figure.
