Opinion| There is one thing that all socialists have in common, they can never get enough of YOUR money.
Economic collapse’s poster child, Ocasio-Cortez, is no exception, in fact, most of the time she IS the rule.
Despite having only been on the job for about 4 months, she is lobbying for a pay raise … but do not call it a “raise” around her because in her mind, it’s not a raise, it’s something she’s owed.
“not even like a raise, it’s a cost of living adjustment. You can vote against a cost of living adjustment all you want and it will look good on its surface,” the freshman Democrat told Fox News.
I’m making that up right? Watch her say it for yourself right here:
Ocasio-Cortez, who makes $174,000, says she needs a raise like minimum wage workers: “Congress, retail workers, everybody should get cost of living increases to accommodate for changes in our economy”
On the $4,500 raise she wants: “It’s not even like a raise”

Former Secret Service agent and all around bad ass, Dan Bongino reported on the Socialist’s newest crusade”
“Socialist Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) defended her support for a Congressional pay raise for her $174,000 salary, claiming low government salaries were the reason why so many lawmakers turn to lobbying after leaving office.
Ocasio-Cortez said yesterday of Congressional pay increases: “…It may not be politically popular to say, but honestly this is why there’s so much pressure to turn to lobbying firms and to cash in on member service after people leave because precisely of this issue.”
According to the freshman congresswoman, “Every cost of living adjustment that gets bypassed is voting to increase the pressure to exploit loopholes and legal loopholes to kind of lean on other ways to enrich oneself through service.”
The average American worker makes about $47,000 a year according to thebalancecareers.com. If AOC really believed in “Democratic Socialism” wouldn’t she want to cut Congressional pay to that level? Oh yeah, I forgot, her draconian ideas and limitations on keeping your income only apply to us serfs, not the kings and queens in Congress.
