New York progressive house member Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez criticized Congress for not suffering pay cuts like the rest of the government. But will she actually support this now that she’s in power? The Daily Caller reports:
New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said lawmakers should refuse to get paid during the partial government shutdown but she won’t say if that rule applies to her.
As the New York Post reports, when asked Thursday about receiving her congressional salary, the self-proclaimed Democratic socialist apparently had other things on her mind, running down a Capitol Hill hallway and telling the reporter, “I’ve gotta run!”
It was on social media in December that Ocasio-Cortez castigated members of Congress for accepting a salary when some members of the public have to do without.
As I recall, AOC was upset because she couldn’t collect a salary before being sworn in as she needed to rent an apartment in DC and needed the money to do that because it is “expensive”. Somehow I don’t see her foregoing her salary for anything. It’s part of that speaking with a forked tongue.
Congress Critters are paid by check I assume. Checks have to be cashed, which involves endorsing the check. Was her pay check cashed or wasn’t it, the answer is easily determined and said answer should be publicized as widely as possible.
Wouldn’t it be better if she simply walked the plank?
Ocasio-Cortez is a self-serving hypocritical stupid little weasel. She will do what is in her own best interest. Forget the campaign statements. Now we will see her serve herself.
My conservative republican representative is donating his check during shutdown, but then again here in Missouri we do say, “show me”
Her knowledge of economics is appalling. Enough said. Proves the problems we have in our current educational systems.
Just another penis-less (if I can’t have one I will be a BITCH) I’m in the swamp now, a liberal rat or is it swamp rat.
From another topic early:
In response to Allen’s comment. What journalist?? They are something from the past. Today they aren’t even close to being Journalist. They are nothing but Fantasy Writers. Jounalist/writers – reporters used to be honest and true to their profession by investigating the information for a basis of truth and relevant facts before putting pen to paper. Today they fail in their profession by doing a report on hearsay and nothing else regardless of it’s validity. They are shameless, dishonest clods in respect to what once was an honorable profession. Even the word journalist garners no respect in today’s media. What a disgraceful sham these people invoke with their so called media reporting.
