Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez suffered this humiliating defeat

New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez looked like she was on a one-way trip to political superstardom.

Not anymore.

That’s because Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just suffered this humiliating defeat.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez built her reputation on claiming socialism will benefit everyday Americans.

It turns out she is only out for herself.

Ocasio-Cortez was the highest profile member of the House of Representatives to come out in favor of a $4,500 pay raise for members of Congress.

Ocasio-Cortez wants a pay hike at a time when Congress refuses to do the people’s business and secure the border to stem the tide of the illegal alien invasion.

And ever more outrageously, Ocasio-Cortez claimed raising members of Congress’ pay will help them pass Left-wing wishlist items like so-called “campaign finance” laws that would allow them to shut down grassroots conservative organizations.

Democrats yanked the pay raise legislation after vulnerable Democrats in districts the President won in 2016 cranked up the heat on leadership.

But by coming out in favor of lining her own pockets at a time when Congress is more dysfunctional than ever, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez proved she was just another swamp creature.

    The law or whatever they use that allows them to raise their own pay needs to be abolished, rescinded or repealed. Having control over one compensation as a alleged “servant of the people” sounds illegal. Just like them never being held accountable for crimes they commit. Our government was specifically chartered to be
    “of the people by the people for the people”. The word politician does not appear a single time in that statement.

    I have wondered my entire life why we are stuck with political parties, any of them? Then I read an article by Joshua Philipp titled “The Story Behind Washington’s Warning About Partisanship”. It is the history of the creation of todays political parties from before the US was created. It is a shocking read to say the least. Explains why so many people don’t see much difference between the two major parties. The article was in the May 30 – June 5 2019 issue of The Epoch Times. Makes room for the idea that these parties could and should be abolished.

    That would be (ALL) of the democrat communist party USA mentally deranged individuals that live in NY.

    She is why we desperately NEED term limits.

  5. Maxx says:

    I totally agree. It’s the media that keeps her around and also her stupidity. Last year she was making minimum wage as a bar tender. There is another one like her in Congress from Wisconsin named Gwen Moore. She campaigned on this slogan….
    “from welfare to Washington”. She rarely opens her mouth and does anything but provide a democrat vote on everything. An absolute SLUG. The IQ of a pine stump. nTa

    I have a request… Let’s not talk about Alexandria Cortez and let’s ignore her for sometime. The more we talk about her or refer to her, she thinks she is an important person. The more she sees her name in the Media, she believes she is a Celebrity . Let her yell, shout and scream, believe me, she will shut her mouth.

    They should get a pay cut not increase.
    They are doing nothing to protect the people of this Country.
    Most of them should not be reelected.

  10. Don Poggendorf says:

    Congress should all have a PAY CUT since they do not do the job they swore to do when they were elected by the AMERICAN TAXPATERS!

  11. John Flynn says:

    Indeed, Everett, she’s already cost her constituency over 25,000 well-paying jobs by being about the only person that bad-mouthed Amazon constructing a giant Amazon facility in NYC (perhaps in her very own district, not sure)

    Thanks to Trump the US is energy independent. our troops are no longer fighting foreign wars (especially over oil.) he is doing his best to secure our border from millions of criminal invaders even though Congress won’t do a thing, He’s taken on China and brought back millions of American jobs, Our stock market is the envy of the world. Our GDP blows away the EU, China and every other country on earth. , and he doesn’t take a paycheck, instead donates it to charity, and these losers want a raise? What a disgrace to even ask.

  13. Ann says:

    Citizen legislators, just like Trump.

  14. Everett McAfee says:

    Congress should be paid by the number of days they work and manage to accomplish something. So far this year they wouldn’t have gotten a cent.
    AOC is undoubtedly the dumbest representative ever elected. She went from bartender where she was unable to keep the drinks straight to Congress. Tell her she can take her pay from the tax incentive money that remains from the Amazon deal.

  15. GIBSON says:

    So much is written by the public when things appear to be going bad for the country , enough to set Congress on fire, together with any Democrat that’s ever breathed, but no initiative is ever taken, just hot air, letting off steam, why is that?

  16. Jeanette Voisin says:

    Since we the taxpayer have to pay for all the illegals then there is no money for a pay raise . Think twice before you open your mouth AOC

  17. Dennis Durgan says:

    Must be all the nasty gross things she sucked on her way up the ladder.

  18. Colleen La Rose says:

    Great question Dennis, I think it’s an inherited feature all liberals must have. They all look like they suck lemons before they get pics taken of their ugly mugs.

  19. KatahdinView says:

    Dennis, Could be because she all ways has someting else in her mouth if you know what I mean. That is all she is good for.
