Why the Democrat Leadership, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, embrace socialism

In every socialist country, those who hand out government cheese live large, while those receiving “free” government cheese are trapped in poverty and forced to prostitute their vote to socialist leaders to survive.

Witness Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who now lives large with an annual salary of $174,000 and about another $110,000 in fringe benefits [retirement plans, top of the shelf medical, paid vacations, etc.] bringing her annual earnings up to about $285,000. And what is the average salary of her congressional district’s constituents? It’s under $60,000. But even with such a huge difference between AOC’s salary and her constituents, one of the first things AOC wanted as a member of Congress was to give herself and members of Congress a $4,500 cost of living increase and increase her constituents’ taxes to pay for it.

While Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the rest of the Democrat Leadership promises free socialist cheese to get elected, its seems quite clear they are the only ones who receive that cheese which is financed by confiscatory taxes imposed on their constituents.


The Democrat Party Leadership has been angry, stupid and obnoxious ever since the Republican Party Leadership freed democrat owned slaves. ___ Author unknown

A few thousand dollar cost of increase for Congressional members is going to break the bank at a tally of less than $2 million, but trillions on wars, tax cuts, and unnecessary military spending is no problem whatsoever.

are you shifting the argument to giving divas like AOC raises? lol

Washington DC is an extremely expensive city to live in. I don’t really care if Congresspeople get occasional raises to account for cost of living increases. As I said, a $4.500 uptick would equate to less than $2 million total. We have so many bigger issues to deal with when it comes to our money flowing out in idiotic ways.

The Dem Dem Politicians what their “Crumbs” back!!!

You know, the money that Trump made sure the American people got, and now
through raising taxes the Liberal Politicians can get that money back for themselves
and then some!

where does the figure 4500 come from?

we have big problems, so nobody pay any attention to all the government self serving raises!

The OP. Might I suggest reading it?


the op doesnt indicate any metric that justifies 4500


Free government cheese (taxpayer dollars) pays for a lot of great things. Like Donald’s Amazing Technicolor Golfing Adventures! Is he trapped in poverty for receiving all that cheddar?

Dude, it’s right there. I realize that any mention of AOC gets some posters frothing and they just can’t contain themselves, but here ya go.

AOC “wants”

that’s not justification for that amount.


give up

It’s not that easy to be able to afford living in DC and NY, or any other high rent district.

Just ask Duncan Hunter.

See: Ocasio-Cortez backs controversial pay raise for Congress

“Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-Queens) wants to give herself and the other 434 representatives a $4,500 cost of living increase, a boost that Democratic leaders yanked out of concerns about a backlash from voters.”


The unavoidable truth is, the Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sander’s and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s socialist plan for “free” college tuition will be paid for by taxing millions of college graduates who worked for and paid their own way through college and are now trying to finance their own economic needs.

Did you know that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is only 29 years old?
Did you know that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was born in the Bronx?
Did you know that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is ~ 5’4" tall?
Did you know that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was born October 13th, which makes her a Libra?
Did you know that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez likes pina coladas, and getting caught in the rain?

Did you know that no one here is in any way obsessed with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez? Fake news.


multi tens of trillions proposed for a climate hoax, 1000 per month for everyone and all healthcare (for criminals) and college for free and you complain about “golf”

your posts sound like the product of the media’s forge.

The only thing I will give up is trying to converse with someone who looks at numbers on the screen in front of him and claims they aren’t there because he can’t admit he was wrong.

Have fun whining about a freshman member of the House of Representatives.

ok you gave up hard

you and many others.


That sounds like a direct attack, good sir! Please don’t be so very very mean and very very unfair.

She makes $285,000.00. She wants $4,500.00 more for a COL increase.

The average salary in her district is $60,000.00.

IF she were true to her cause? She’d live on $60,000 and donate the rest to whatever cause she brays over.
