Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez cried on Twitter over the fact that the Democrats in the House will not likely get the pay raise they were demanding. Ocasio-Cortez claimed that normal citizens should not have received a tax cut that Trump gave them, and that politicians who make $174,000 is not enough money and they need far more.

Ocasio-Cortez did not stop there she continued to claim in order to keep her and other politicians from being corrupt you have to pay them more money.

“Yep. Voting against cost of living increases for members of Congress may sound nice, but doing so only increases pressure on them to keep dark money loopholes open. This makes campaign finance reform *harder.* ALL workers deserve cost of living increases, incl min wage workers.”

“What this does is punish members who rely on a straight salary, and reward those who rely on money loopholes and other forms of self-dealing. For example, it incentivizes the horrible kinds of legislative looting we saw in the GOP tax scam bill.”

“It’s not a fun or politically popular position to take. But consistency is important. ALL workers should get cost of living increases. That’s why minimum wage should be pegged to inflation, too. Voting against cost of living increases is 1 reason why dark $ loopholes stay open.”


Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is not hiding the fact that she believes we need to be ran like the most ruthless Socialist nations in history. She wants the government to have 100% power and citizens to be taxed at near a 100% rate. Ocasio-Cortez believes the politicians in government should be the highest paid people in the world as well. We need to start believing Ocasio-Cortez when she is telling us she wants to be the most ruthless Socialist dictator in human history.
