In every socialist country, those who hand out government cheese live large, while those receiving “free” government cheese are trapped in poverty and forced to prostitute their vote to socialist leaders to survive.


Witness Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who now lives large with an annual salary of $174,000 and about another $110,000 in fringe benefits [retirement plans, top of the shelf medical, paid vacations, etc.] bringing her annual earnings up to about $285,000. And what is the average salary of her congressional district’s constituents? It’s under $60,000. But even with such a huge difference between AOC’s salary and her constituents, one of the first things AOC wanted as a member of Congress was to give herself and members of Congress a $4,500 cost of living increase and increase her constituents’ taxes to pay for it.


While Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the rest of the Democrat Leadership promises free socialist cheese to get elected, its seems quite clear they are the only ones who receive that cheese which is financed by confiscatory taxes imposed on their constituents.

You seem to have a very clear misunderstanding of what the "democrat leadership" wants.

First off, basically 0% of the Democratic Party actually support socialism. That's a lie told most likely to you by maniacal conspiracy rednecks.

Secondly, I have no idea why you are so in shock that a politician is paid more than your average middle class worker. Repubs and Dems do this. If that is socialism then all politicians are socialist. See? Makes no sense.

3rd, I don't know where you found the claim that AOC wants give herself 4,500$ in living costs through the gov. Also, I'm pretty sure that taxpayers don't pay for politicians living costs.

No ones promising "free socialist cheese". Medicare for all will be paid for by taxing the big wigs up at Wall Street. Your whole post sounds like it came straight off of infowars mate. Get some real facts.

My goodness, you really are uniformed.

"Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-Queens) wants to give herself and the other 434 representatives a $4,500 cost of living increase, a boost that Democratic leaders yanked out of concerns about a backlash from voters."

The unavoidable truth is, the Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sander’s and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s socialist plan for “free” college tuition will be paid for by taxing millions of college graduates who worked for and paid their own way through college and are now trying to finance their own economic needs.

Does wanting a raise for her and her fellow congressmen make her a terrible person? You seem like all you want to do is find something bad that this lady did.

Hey, I'm just pointing out how well she is doing as a socialist government administrator, AKA a member of the Democrat Leadership, and especially how well she is doing when it comes to her health care.


Members of Congress get a gold-level Obamacare policy and receive federal subsidies that cover 72 percent of the cost of their health insurance premiums. Additionally, free or low-cost care is available to them from the Office of the Attending Physician, and they also have access to free outpatient care at military facilities in the Washington, D.C., area.

Sure pays to be a socialist administrator in government.

Stop saying "socialist administrator" ok? It's bullshit. This country was built for democracy and not a single democrat wants to take that away.

How do you fucking know what kind of healthcare they are getting? Even if you somehow know, EVERY congressman gets that coverage. Dems and retarded repubs alike.

Stop with the "dem's-goona-steal-mah-guns-and-my-truck-with-socialism-" bullshit. It's nonsensical and does not reflect any member of the Democratic Party.

Good post.

However, as much as I am against free cheese I am more against the immoral wealth at the top

House Members either need to be paid more, or the way the Congress works should be changed so that are not required to have homes in two places and travel back and forth. Allow someone to vote from home, lock legislation at least a week before the vote on it so no changes can be made, and shorten the number of days on the legislative calendar, then I would support cutting pay. Otherwise, DC is not a cheap place to live.

Congressional pay raises don't take effect until the next term. In order for OAC to get the raise she would have to be re-elected.
