GO FIGURE! Ocasio-Cortez Is Now All In Favor of Members of Congress Getting A Pay Raise

Double standard, much!?

Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is okay with members of Congress receiving a pay increase.

When a person works hard, they expect to be compensated accordingly. If you’re a capitalist, that sort of thing makes sense.

If you’re a noted Democrat Socialist, it does not.

It’s actually very hypocritical – especially coming from AOC, a person who wants to tax Americans into the dirt.

Ocasio Cortez says efforts to hike Congressional pay “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.”

Even though most members of Congress are well-off financially before taking office, House Democrats are now proposing a pay increase.

Here’s the scoop…

From Politico:

House spending leaders want to break a decadelong pay freeze and give members of Congress a cost-of-living bump that could pad their salaries with an extra $4,500 next year.

Congressional salaries have been frozen at about $174,000 since 2009, when Democrats controlled Congress and decided to suspend automatic cost-of-living increases while heading into the 2010 election year.

Ocasio-Cortez didn’t seem happy or sad after learning that a billionaire is going to pay off student debt for the entire 2019 graduating class of Morehouse College.

But conservatives on Twitter let her know what she missed.

Here’s her tweet:

Every Morehouse Class of 2019 student is getting their student debt load paid off by their commencement speaker.

This could be the start of what’s known in Econ as a ‘natural experiment.’ Follow these students & compare their life choices w their peers over the next 10-15 years.

Reactions:

This amazing act of kindness brought to you by a billionaire – and the capitalist system that made his billions possible.

This is how it’s supposed to work – personal and or private charity. It is not the government’s job to pay off debt for college students.

Period the end. 🙂

Good for the students but Robert F. Smith didn’t make his wealth in a #socialist society. He worked at Goldman Sachs, left and built Vista Equity Partners that is worth over $4 billion and manages an estimated $30 billion. That’s called #capitalism.

Sure is nice that a billionaire could pay that as a gift to these students.

Glad no one called them all evil or anything.

People can give things to each other voluntarily? Who knew?

Yay for capitalism!

No matter how many gaffes or racist comments, Joe Biden always seems to get a pass. The amount of corruption doesn’t mean anything to the mainstream media, either. All that counts is getting President Trump out of office. Here are some notable Biden moments from an event on Saturday.

WATCH: Biden Says He’ll Be A President For the ‘Chumps’ Who Don’t Vote for Him

Oh, Joe.

Joe Biden and the left claim to be all about unity, but they very clearly don’t understand what the term means. In no way, whatsoever, is the Democrat Party a big tent. Joe proved that on Saturday during a speech in Pennsylvania. You can’t call people “chumps” and still say you’ll have their best interests in mind. It doesn’t work that way. WATCH: https://twitter.com/TrumpWarRoom/status/1320035466159206402?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1320035466159206402%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3%2Ccontainerclick_0&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.weaselzippers.us%2F If you watched President Trump’s Thursday night town hall on NBC, you probably noticed that POTUS was pretty much debating host Savannah Guthrie. If you tuned in to ABC’s town hall with Joe, you saw the former VP field softball questions and get away with whatever he wanted. Both of those outcomes should’ve been expected, though. That’s how things work in 2020.
