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 β€œmay 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 β€˜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. πŸ™‚

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!

SHOCK VIDEO Shows Woman Violently Shove Catholic Priest Off Stage During Mass (Watch)

Unhinged? Just a little bit…

From our friends at DC Dirty Laundry: Wow! Many are celebrating this woman pushing a priest off a stage in Brazil. The mass was being broadcast widely and word has it that she did it because… Well… Here’s Gary to tell you why… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BJFiE5TQm9c So injuring priests is now celebrated in the LGBT community? Seriously? This unidentified woman is now a hero to lesbians and gays all over the world. But come on! Is this how you make a point? Violence against a priest who just ran a youth camp for 50,000 kids is evil. Horrifying children to make your point? Unbelievable! More from Newsweek: Brazilian priest who is celebrated in the country for his lively sermons was violently pushed from a stage yesterday while delivering mass in Cachoeira Paulista, SΓ£o Paulo. The incident occurred shortly before 3 p.m. after a woman was able to rush past security and approach Father Marcelo Rossi during a ceremony at the headquarters of Canção Nova, which is a Brazilian Catholic community known for broadcasting religious material online. Rossi, a preaching powerhouse who has reportedly sold millions of musical records in Brazil and was once dubbed a “pop-star priest” by the Associated Press, was seen in video footage of the unexpected mass invasion toppling from the stage as onlookers watched on in shock. Another video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sy9tuV32Ie0 The thing, the priest will instantly forgive this deranged radical lunatic because he’s a good man. And yet, the clearly liberal protester will not care.

President Trump did his thing at a rally in North Carolina on Wednesday night. He slammed every socialist Democrat he could think of. He listed the reasons why America is thriving under his leadership. He also destroyed a far-left protester in typical Trump fashion.
