Ocasio-Cortez fires back at Fox for making fun of her income

She fires back after Fox makes jokes about her low income and inability to afford rent in D.C.

Thank you all for the overwhelming outpour of support! As I mentioned, we’ve been preparing and will be fine.

However, it’s been very revealing to see how gleefully Fox News hosts crack jokes about working-class people.

It reveals what they actually think about us.

You know what will be even more revealing? Watching how quickly she is no longer poor.


True, $174k salary would be middle class level.

She’ll be a millionaire in under three years, maybe within one.

Book deals can be lucrative. If that’s what you’re getting at, then she’s earned it and deserves congratulations.

Good for her.

I wonder how often these book deals are profitable for the publisher?

It’s all relative. Make that kind of money in rural Wyoming and you’re living like a king. Inside the Beltway you’re eating ramin noodles and RC cola for dinner.

If they weren’t profitable, why would they keep making the deals?

Hmm, why would people pay more for a politicians book than they will make on it, I just can’t figure it out.

It takes pennies to print a book.


You think that Simon and Schuster, or whatever other publisher, is trying to bribe politicians?

For what? What will they get out of it?

I’m sure a lot of things mystify you


They don’t writer royalties are like 10% the rest goes to the publisher and with ebook becoming more popular cost are at an all time low.

They are owned by CBS. which is in turned owned by Viacom. Does CBS or Viacom ever have anything come up with the government? Nah, lol.

You think viacom really know anything about who Simon and Schuster are publishing, but if Cortez really want to make money she can do it the honest way and accept legal bribes from lobbyist.

She’s a socialist- shouldn’t she be sharing everything anyway?


And another statement from someone who doesn’t know what socialism is.

Isn’t that what she called herself?

What you seem to think socialism is isn’t socialism. At least based on your comment on how she should be sharing it
