29-year-old Democrat Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will be sworn in as a member of Congress come January 2019.
She recently said that she couldn’t afford to land an apartment in Washington DC until her Congressional paycheck kicked in.
“I have three months without a salary before I’m a member of Congress. So, how do I get an apartment? Those little things are very real.”
From Daily Wire:
As Fox News reports, “Records show she has more than enough to plunk down on an apartment in the U.S. capital.” Fox News adds that Ocasio-Cortez “reported having between $15,001 and $50,000 in her checking account as of the end of April 2018, according to a Financial Disclosure Report she submitted to the clerk of the U.S. House of Representatives. The financial disclosure also reveals that she has an investment account valued between $1,001 and $15,000.”
That minimum of $15,000 that Ocasio-Cortez had in the bank is 15 times the amount 57% of average Americans had in their savings, as USA Today reported in May 2018. USA Today stated, “The average American has less than $4,000 in savings, while 57% of U.S. adults have less than $1,000 to their names.”
Like all elected members of Congress, Ocasio-Cortez will earn $174,000 annually.

She knows exactly how to combat “climate change.”
It involves World War II.
Specifically, it involves the blueprint used by the allied forces to defeat the Nazis.

In an odd twist, Ocasio-Cortez will not endorse a Sanders 2020 White House bid.
From Fox News:
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic socialist congressional candidate who has spent weeks campaigning with fellow socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders, on Thursday refused to endorse his prospective candidacy in the 2020 presidential race.
Liberals are very upset with Ocasio-Cortez right now.
The Daily Wire has the scoop:
Democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez appears to be in danger of losing some of her support among liberals with her decision to increasingly align herself with anti-liberal activist Linda Sarsour. The Democratic candidate’s rift with her liberal supporters really showed itself online on the first day of the chaotic Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings, when Ocasio-Cortez held up Sarsour as a “woman putting it all on the line for healthcare, women & LGBT+ rights.”
Last week, Ocasio-Cortez and Sarsour headlined the 16th Annual Universal Muslim Association of America, where the two took the stage to promote women’s rights and progressive values, despite the event being reportedly segregated and the women who attended almost uniformly wearing hijabs. About a week after the event, Ocasio-Cortez took to Twitter to praise Sarsour after she got herself arrested for interrupting the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings Monday.
Our future is a shared responsibility.
This woman putting it all on the line for healthcare, women & LGBT+ rights is @lsarsour.
The far right constantly maligns her w/ false attacks + threats of violence.
Yet here she is, as always, fighting for everything our flag represents. https://t.co/QR4rYnclLt
