Ocasio-Cortez laments paying for apartments in NY, DC — lashes out at Republicans for not caring

Only a socialist would complain about making $174,000 a year and having trouble finding a second place to live.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., lamented roughly two months ago about the difficulty of affording one apartment.

Now, as a member of Congress making serious money, she’s complaining about the financial stress of “needing” a second apartment.

“The thing Republicans taking cheap shots forget to mention is that it’s about having trouble affording a SECOND apartment. I live in the Bronx and work in D.C. Need spot in both,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote in a Tweet sent out on Sunday.

Her tweet was in response to “progressive activist” Jordan Uhl, who said: “Expecting her to easily drop serious cash in another high-rent area is ludicrous and only perpetuates the idea that the wealthy are worthy elected.”

For many years, lawmakers have slept in their offices while in D.C. so that they can avoid that very issue.

Ocasio-Cortez is either completely oblivious to this idea or she is laying the groundwork to demand lawmakers be paid more in the future so they can live an even more lavish lifestyle.
