Millennial Socialist Elected to Congress Can’t Afford DC Apartment

New York Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, dubbed by many on the left as the future of the Democratic Party, will have to delay moving to Washington, DC because the rent is too expensive.

Ocasio-Cortez, a self-described democratic socialist, became a left-wing media darling during the run-up to the 2018 midterm elections held earlier this week. By succeeding a moderate Democrat in a deep-blue district in one of America’s bluest of states, her electoral victory was all but assured as soon as she staged her upset during the primary season. At 29, she is the youngest woman ever elected to Congress.

Despite her easy election win, Ocasio-Cortez had to put her political revolution on pause after finding out that she wasn’t going to be paid by the taxpayer upfront.

“I have three months without a salary before I’m a member of Congress. So, how do I get an apartment?” the millennial told the New York Times.

There is a lot of irony to enjoy here, but Ocasio-Cortez’s financial struggles are understandable considering her last occupation was bartending. No, really — that’s what she was doing before she decided to become the next Bernie Sanders. This, she says, is part of the system designed to keep the people down — or something.

Ocasio-Cortez signaled support for considerably far-left policy proposals during the campaign season. The New Yorker has called for a single-payer healthcare system, placing much heavier taxes on the rich, and fully funding college tuitions. Her campaign follows the failed presidential bid of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders in 2016, which enjoyed significant millennial support.

When challenged to defend her radical beliefs, Ocasio Cortez has continually dodged difficult questions. Even CNN’s Jake Tapper simply gave up asking her just how much higher taxes would have to be to fund her fantasy welfare state. She also accused conservative commentator Ben Shapiro of “cat-calling her” after being invited to debate him.

So, future Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will have to wait a couple of months before finding an apartment. Maybe she can crash at Bernie’s place?

Again, this is the person who has been proclaimed to be the future of the Democratic Party. 2020 is already looking like a circus.

    1. Lets hope that the illegal migrants get here soon and get across the border — It has the potential of improving the I.Q. level of the dumocrat party

    2. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez could have one of her lesbian lovers foot the bill on her apartment until she gets her first paycheck. I’m sure either Ashleigh Banfield, Tamika Mallory, Natalie Portman, Lorde or Lana Del Rey, women whom Alexandria has had relations with, can afford to pay her DC rent for mow!

  1. Gee, the real world is biting her on the A S S. How will she pay for it? Will, for socialists, it’s always with other people’s money. Until it runs out that is! Not to worry, the Socialist / Democrats will grab someone else’s money and front her the bills! If the rent is too high, just remove some zeros (which have no value) and that will get her rent down to affordable. (That is what she said about the national debt)
    I understand that Key Bridge is a nice place to live under this time of year! Tell her to bring her blanky!

    1. No need to worry, today or tomorrow, you’ll be reading about her new GoFundMe account, set up to pay her rent in D.C., which — like Christine Blasey-Ford’s, will garner about a million $. Then she can live in a mansion in the suburbs of D.C., just like one of Socialist Bernie Sander’s 3 mansions

  2. WHAT a pathetic loser.. and they want her in Congress.. these people had to be some kind of really STUPID to vote her in office… they voted for all the free stuff she was offering with NO idea how it will be paid for… As some of these idiots who voted for her and their response to how it will be paid for, is that the government will pay for it… SO STUPID that they have NO clue that it is us Tax payers who pay the bill… NOTHING IS FREE!!!

    1. no, they know DAMN WELL that it will be the working people who pay for it. They ALWAYS pay for EVERYTHING that is “Free” with OTHER PEOPLE’S MONEY. It’s Rule #1 of Democratic Socialism ( Rule #2 is, Always Accuse the Other Side of Exactly What You Yourself are Guilty Of )

    1. I agree, I don’t either ! After all the Fraud in this last election and no one being arrested ?i I i saw just what our common core Education, has done to our Country ! Produced so many unintelligent young people ! How did she ever win ? With Politicians like her we are doomed! Venezuela around the corner .

  3. she can move into the free housing and receive free schooling and free health care while she waits for her check…oh wait she hasn’t made that happen yet lol . I heard that there is a number of ICE agents that have spare rooms

    1. Unfortunately for this loser she feel this is an example of how lower income people are treated – so unfairly. Oh, I forgot she spent her money on a $3,000 outfit so because she is stupid we owe her? New York picked a really good one. Maybe she will show up on her first day in a nap-sack. Oh she could be an intern for Bill Clinton or move in with her bud good ole B. Sanders, or New York can start a go fund me page and collect $500,000 or so and allow her to have a pent-house appointment in DC being paid for by the people she is representing. Another example of people not knowing anything but believe they can fix anything.

  4. Or she could ask for a commie tax payer funded housing allowance and food stamps along with her free cell phone and public transport ticket. Life sucks as a socialist unless one is considered a commie elite. All Hail Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Ho, Castro, Barry Soetoro (a.k.a. Obama), most of his cabinet and advisors like old monkey face Valerie Jarrett and others that just love the above mentioned list of old dead commies. I look forward to her downfall as a politician.

    1. Our country is no longer our country. It is now the country for communist, socialist and thieves. The demos stole ballots and allowed murderers and prisoners to vote illegally. And nothin is done not even a peep from the Republicans. In ten years our debt will be 40 trillion dollars or more. This is more than all other countries in the world combined. We white people will be on the streets begging the illegals for scraps of food while they are living in our stolen houses given to them by the US government just so they will vote for the democrats. We patriots (now known as white supremist and biggetts) will of long lost any rights to complain about our governments wrong doings. In Europe you can no longer complain about certain religious practices carried on by the devil worshippers known as Muslims. They marry six year old little girls and then rape them and the European courts say you can not complain about it. Our world is doomed. Satin has won for the moment. God needs to come and wipe it out.

      1. Here’s part of a quote:
          we will arbitrate, sending our Control Commissions into all wrecked countries. This war will end for all time our struggle against the Gentiles. We will openly reveal our identity with the races of Asia and Africa. I can state with assurance that the last generation of white children is now being born. Our Control Commissions will, in the interests of peace and wiping out inter- racial tensions. Forbid the Whites to mate with Whites. The White Women must cohabit with members of the dark races, the White Men with black women. Thus the White Race will disappear, for the mixing of the dark with the White means the end of the White Man, and our most dangerous enemy will become only a memory. We shall embark upon an era of ten thousand years of peace and plenty, the Pax Judaica, and our race will rule undisputed over the world. Our superior intelligence will easily enable us to retain mastery over a world of dark peoples.

        Question from the gathering: Rabbi Rabinovich, what about the various religions after the Third World War? Rabinovich: There will be no more religions. Not only would the existence of a priest class remain a constant danger to our rule, but belief in an after-life would give spiritual strength to irreconcilable elements in many countries, and enable them to resist us. We will, however, retain the rituals and customs of Judaism as the mark of our hereditary ruling caste, strengthening our racial laws so that no Jew will be allowed to marry outside our race, nor will any stranger be accepted by us. (Note: Protocol of Zion No. 17 para. 2, states: ‘Now that freedom of conscience has been declared everywhere (as a result of their efforts they have previously stated) only years divide us from the moment of the complete wrecking of that [Hated] Christian Religion. As to other religions, we shall have still less difficulty with them.’) We may have to repeat the grim days of World War II, when we were forced to let the Hitlerite bandits sacrifice some of our people, in order that we may have adequate documentation and witnesses to legally justify our trial and execution of the leaders of America and Russia as war criminals, after we have dictated the peace. I am sure you will need little preparation for such a duty, for sacrifice has always been the watchword of our people, and the death of a few thousand lesser Jews in exchange for world leadership is indeed a small price to pay. To convince you of the certainty of that leadership, let me point out to you how we have turned all of the inventions of the White Man into weapons against him. His printing presses and Radios are the mouthpieces of our desires, and his heavy industry manufactures the instruments which he sends out to arm Asia and Africa against him. Our interests in Washington are greatly extending the Point Four Program (viz. Colombo Plan) for developing industry in backward areas of the world, so that after the industrial plants and cities of Europe and America are destroyed by atomic warfare, the Whites can offer no resistance against the large masses of the dark races, who will maintain an unchallenged technological superiority. And so, with the vision of world victory before you, go back to your countries and intensify your good work, until that approaching day when Israeli will reveal herself in all her glorious destiny as the Light of the World.” (Note: Every statement made by Rabinovich is based on agenda contained in the “Protocols of Zion.”)

    1. Don’t worry sweetie. In a few years you’ll be a millionaire just like Mad Maxine and the other dems. Can’t wait to see how you treat your constituents then.

      1. Man, what a evil looking woman…
        a cross between a Rat and and a grey Alien Ever
        notice how all Comminist Democrat Politicians
        take on the looks of Perverts, Criminals, Rat’s, Lizards or Space Creatures?

  5. I don’t see the problem. Cortez should “Just pay for it”. Isn’t that the same thing she said when she was asked how we are going to afford to pay the estimated $40 Billion to give Medicare to all?
    Cortez is just another Socialist who is good at spending other people’s money, but not so good at earning her own money.
    Shapiro offered her $10,000 to debate him. She turned him down. If she wasn’t so afraid to debate someone who actually knew what they were talking about, maybe she should have accepted his offer so that she could “squirrel away” this money to pay for her rent.

      1. Right around $3.3 trillion, the same combined public and private amount already spent on healthcare, but with far less options and far longer wait times.

  6. Enjoyed your articles. For the early one, hope the judiciary committee can fine, charge Dr. Ford for her
    False accusations against Judge Kavanaugh. She took a route to gain sympathy and grab opportunity to make
    money from book deals, etc. Any monies made in this deplorable manner should be attached for any expenses incurred by Judge K. and wasted time of the
    Confirmation process and body.

    Your second story on the new, naive Socialist Congress
    woman should leave everyone speechless. How can someone of this age not have saved enough to pay rent
    So that she may live in D.C. for her job. She can not sponge off of another friendly Democrat? She had no plan? She does not take responsability? And you want to trust her to represent you in Congress as she presents her ideas for a “all things free” citizenry?
    Lord help us!!!

  7. I notice none of the Democrats (the party of caring and concern) volunteered to help her out. Oh, that’s right! That would require their money! Hey, if it was tax dollars….
    Obama has been bragging about how much money he has now. Oh, yeah, it’s not tax dollars. Hmm. Even Soros isn’t handing her any cash. Life can be tough for a “useful idiot.”

  8. Alexandria is a circus of her own making. Just another millennial that can’t make a decision unless someone with a higher IQ helps her figure out how to get the money for an apartment. Someone should tell her it’s called “saving ahead of time for an expense that should have been taken into consideration before spending her money on $3000.00 dresses”. Those that voted for this women really do deserve her. It’s going to be funny to watch when a person that can’t manage her own finances takes on the country’s problems. No wonder she is a socialist! She doesn’t understand how to use her own money to acquire an apartment, but she wants to tell the American people how to spend their money on other people and “things”. Let the show begin!

  9. Where’s her parents? Where’s Pelosi, Waters, Bernie? Surely they should foot her bills to show just how well socialism works. Maybe she could be a tax write off as a business expense. Nancy could hire her to clean, cook and do laundry in exchange for boarding in one of her many mansions.

  10. The word FREE will cause the freeloaders to crawl out from under their rocks. Something in the word FREE creates a frenzy that surpasses all logic.
    What was Cortez thinking? Could she have planned for the future? The dumbasses that elected her to represent them deserve what they get.

  11. Remember folks, this is the girl that had no idea how Congress works. This is what the globalist want us all to become. When she gets there finally, the D’s in the House, will tell her what and how to do and to just sit down and keep quite. The only thing she did was throw out an incumbent that evidently the D’s wanted out of there.

  12. Hey, Little Comrade, perhaps Uncle Bernie might front you, eh? After all, he’s your mentor, sponsor, and who knows what else? Shouldn’t he also be your Sugar Daddy? What, “Me, Too” wouldn’t approve? Hey, Uncle Bernie, help your little Commie puppet!!!

  13. I thought she was an economics major. Evidently the principles didn’t stick. Expecting to be paid before starting your job? REALLY? College educated but as dumb as a box of rocks. She was elected by young boobs lining up to get their free everything. Wait till they find out only the chosen will get those thing and most of them are not it. Take a tour through any socialist county. The few get much, are hand picked the rest live in abject poverty

  14. BTW, Patriots, I tried to SHARE this article on FB and was denied because it doesn’t “MEET THEIR COMMUNITY STANDARDS.” What, the TRUTH doesn’t meet Community Standards? See, by their own words, they’re censoring what they don’t agree with.

    1. I had to try it, too. Certain sites they have completely blocked. Evidently they have come up with a new term, ‘abuse’, to describe the truth. The truth is now ‘abusive’ to them.

  15. A debate between Shapiro and Ocasio-Cortez would be a joke. Ben would wipe the floor with her. Boston University should have its accreditation revoked for having graduated the imbecile Alexandria with a Bachelors Degree in Economics.

  16. Youngest woman ever elected to Congress. But, ‘her partner’? So that’s why she’s LGBT friendly. Is she also the first closet lesbian to be elected to Congress? Or is she open about it. First open lesbian? When it comes to firsts, shoot, she could have killed two birds with one stone.

  17. Perhaps she can stay w/ the Obamas> I can’t believe people voted her, in, when she knows nothing about the laws or politics of our country!

  18. Something about the eyes…she is scary! Huge ego and small amount of character or personal accountability. A bartender with a “partner”? Welcome to Venezuela. Next she will have us all eating zoo animals to stay alive when our taxes skyrocket and our jobs dry up. She seems very demonic to me! The new face of the Demorat party is scary. If crum-bumbs like her take over our country we may as well leave for the nearest space station.

  19. Unfortunately, she is exactly what the Dems want in Congress. She is absolutely stupid when it comes to anything political. They will just tell her how to vote, and the little puppet will do it. The commies have it made–just keep electing those who know nothing, and can’t think for themselves, and before you know it, we will be overcome by these idiots. There is a saying that the people deserve the govt they have.

  20. The face of the ‘crat sewer? Is it’s ‘partner’ male or female?

    Are New Yorkers really so stupid as to elect this freak….or do they have an election official there, that’s as crooked as the snipes woman in Florida?

  21. Wait a minute…. she lives in NYC but can’t afford Washington DC??? Something’s wrong there!?!? She could always commute like millions do everyday from NYC to DC…. I guess the commuter train is not good enough for you!!! If I had that problem, I sure wouldn’t be publicly admitting to it… Looking for handouts before she ever gets into office!!! SICK!!!

  22. Feel sorry no feel for people she represents. She can wear 3000.00 outfits she pays her own rent. Do not forget illegal to have someone pay her rent. Illegal not to pay same as someone else would oay. No party funds Watch her so she does not get paid for sex even though done in past now illegal sen menadez nj will help her after he zips his pants

  23. The powers that be need to check all of the Democrats/Communists votes to make sure there is no ballot box stuffing going on. You know as I do the Democrat/Communists will have dead people and illegals in their voter block all over this country, not just in Florida and Arizona!!

    Look back to 2016–there was wide spread voter fraud for the “HILDA BEAST”!!! She lost anyway but there was still criminal activities going on then as now!!

    I read a story yesterday about how a lady who noticed election officials in Florida loading ballots into a rental truck without any official over watch! This is highly irregular and shows me that Democrats/Communists will stop at nothing to try and win the Senate and Congress or the W/H back again!!

  24. OMG. I’m a deplorable patriot but at least I have savings cuz I worked hard and have earned it. Never on food stamps, and free stuff. She’s one of the politicians who will pocket tax payers money and use her power to be a millionaire. God help our country!!

  25. Seems like a good place to begin a monitor on campaign fund spending. Nothing more tempting than all that money sitting there and can’t pay the rent.

  26. I am sure she can find a 200 sq ft concrete apartment with no windows, get a craigslist $25 bike, and get rid of her cellphone. Then she can live the socialist dream and learn what it means, that is what they want all of us to do. What did she expect moving into the white house? Easy target for the lobbyists to bribe.

  27. Millennial Speak:

    “There are many little ways in which our electoral system isn’t even designed (nor prepared) for working-class people to lead.
    This is one of them (don’t worry btw – we’re working it out!) ”

    The citizens elect whomever they believe will LEAD them into a FUTURE with WISDOM, UNDERSTANDING and PLANNING.

    But, this little girl apparently does not even have the INTELLIGENCE and EXPERIENCE to research HOUSING COSTS IN D.C. before getting elected. What other gotchas is she going to come up against?

    For goodness sake, what ADULT whines that an entire “SYSTEM” does not work properly because it did not help her “LEAD”? Excuse me, little girl, but leading means LEADING! Your constituents, fellow Congresspeople, lobbyists, and Congressional aides are not responsible for turning you into an actual leader!

    “…we’re working it out…” clearly means your handlers (aka babysitters) are figuring it all out while you lie in your “safe room” (aka bedroom) and whimper about how unfair the “system” is being to you.


  28. Well, now maybe we understand why she’s so hot to turn the entire United States of America into a Socialist “paradise.” Misery loves company, they say!
    A couple of suggestions for the poor Ms. Ocasio-Cortez:
    1) Crash with your mentor, Bernie Sanders, as someone suggested above. HE won’t mind, though his WIFE might.
    2) put an ad in The Hill looking for a leftist Washington resident who can let you have his/her basement apartment until your January paycheck comes in (that’ll be late January). Washington is FULL of left-wingers, many of whom would be GLAD to have a new Congressperson owe him or her a favor!
    3) GET A PART TIME JOB, maybe tending bar! After all, you have more experience at BAR-TENDING than at preparing to be a Congressperson. And there are LOTS of bars on Capitol Hill. If you don’t want to be a bartender again, try Christmas sales at Macy’s.
    4) Stay in New York and let your newly appointed staff (I assume you’ve had the sense to HIRE a couple off reliable people) interview for you, or do it by phone. It’s a bit awkward, but your lefty supporters will probably understand.

    And stop crabbing at Fox News because their on-camera people can’t pronounce your name. MOST of us know the female name “ALEXANDRA,” without the “I” — AlexandrIa the name of a city in northern Virginia. WE can’t help it if your parents couldn’t spell YOUR name. As for “Ocasio,” I think most everyone CAN pronounce it, and “Cortez” is EASY. So what’s your problem, toots?

  29. Ocazio-Cortez can move in with the Obamas and work as a DC bartender until her paycheck comes up. I’m sure Michelle won’t mind.

  30. A clear pattern is emerging here: Democrats elect women to office who are either:
    A) Senile, demented, crazy or delirious
    B) Dumb as a bag of hammers

  31. If she DOES start a Go Fund Me page, netting her a cool Million, she can move in next door to Tucker Carlson. That way she’ll be familiar with the ANTIFA people who have been harassing him for NO GOOD REASON!! Every time I see a photo of her, I just want to spit!! She doesn’t know BEANS about the Constitution, nor about Basic Law, yet thinks she’s going to be able to waltz into Washington, and make a difference!! The only thing she’s going to do is make an a__ of herself, and get booted out, either before or AFTER her term in office is over!! Perhaps ICE would like to escort her out of the Capitol!!


  33. Sorry. What did you get all the money to go all over the US to campaign for other canidates. First I don’t know where you went to school, but you need to READ THE CONSTITUTION for what it actually says and not what you think it says. You do not know what a socialist society is: CLASS SYSTEM ie: the elite & workers, no middle class, the government tells you what job you do (by testing), Medicare or Medicaid for all (the government takes 50-75% of your salary to pay for it before you get what is left over-crumbs) (also medical care is on a class system as well). I would like for her to visit a Medicaid facility. I know everyone that follows Bernie Sanders is so enamored, but let me tell you, al these houses and money he has, n a socialist country, he wouldn’t have or even be in the Senate. As well as Miss Oscaio-Cortez goes, ask your parents for the money or stand on one of the Bronx corners with a cup and ask for the money

  34. first bimbo elected to congress – congratulations New York, you are being represented by one of your betters

    Ocasio, go steal some money from the people around you and pay your rent with that – after all that is what you’re advocating the govt should do, steal more money from people who actually work to earn a living so you can hand out “free stuff” which garners you votes

  35. You have to wonder what are some people thinking of when voting. This Cortez woman doesn’t have a clue about any important issues. She just regurgitated the same s**t other far left democrats have promised to get elected. She cannot afford the rent? Give it time, she’ll be a millionaire before long like Obama. Sad for this great country.

  36. Just wait till she sees how much she’ll have to pay in taxes on that fat congress paycheck. No Alexandria, it’s not like cash tips at the bar, you won’t get to keep it all.
