CORTEZ CONFUSION: Socialist Star Blames ‘Electoral System’ for Inability to Afford DC Apartment

posted by Hannity Staff - 11.09.18

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez openly blamed the United States ‘Electoral System’ for her difficulty in affording a Washington, DC apartment this week; saying the process “isn’t designed for working-class people to lead.”

The self-described Democratic Socialist -who is poised to become the youngest Congresswoman in US history- confirmed in a recent interview she was unable to afford an apartment in the nation’s capital until she receives her federal salary.

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

“I have three months without a salary before I’m a member of Congress. So, how do I get an apartment? Those little things are very real,” she added.

Socialist superstar Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez -who is poised to become the youngest Congresswoman in American history- confirmed this week she’s unable to afford a Washington, DC apartment until she begins receiving her federal paycheck.

The 29-year-old self-described Democratic Socialist cruised to victory on Election Day, telling the New York Times the “transition period” will be particularly difficult in the weeks ahead.

The next few weeks ““will be very unusual, because I can’t really take a salary,” said Cortez.

“I have three months without a salary before I’m a member of Congress. So, how do I get an apartment? Those little things are very real,” she added.

“We’re kind of just dealing with the logistics of it day by day, but I’ve really been just kind of squirreling away and then hoping that gets me to January,” said the left-leaning politician.

Liberal superstar Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez left American voters scratching their heads this week; bizarrely citing National Parks and eating breakfast sandwiches as examples of Democratic Socialism.

Cortez posted the strange comments on social media after returning from a “few days off” spent at Acadia National Park; citing the nature preserve and “supporting worker-owned businesses” as American “examples of Democratic Socialism.”

Cortez’ comments come just days after she came under fire for banning press and journalists from a series of town hall events; adding the speaking engagements were considered “sanctuary spaces.”
