Ocasio-Cortez to pay interns ‘at least’ $15 an hour — with other people’s money

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is so generous that she’s going to pay her interns “at least” $15 per hour — with other people’s money.

The 29-year-old socialist took to Twitter on Tuesday to exclaim that it’s “time to walk the walk” and that she will become one of the “very few members of Congress who actually pay their interns.”

In a series of tweets, Ocasio-Cortez explained that each member of Congress “gets” around $1.2 million for their entire budget.

The budget is supposed to cover everything, ranging from salaries, rent for district offices, tech devices, and so on.

Ocasio-Cortez, of course, made no mention that the $1.2 million didn’t come from thin air, but rather from American taxpayers.
