Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) lamented the cost of working as a member of Congress in an Instagram post despite her substantial congressional salary. Members of Congress are required to occupy one residence in Washington, D.C., as well as one in the state from which they are representing, according to the New York Democrat. This leads to "class dynamics” within Congress and causes economic strains for those who struggle to afford two residences, she argued. “It’s insanely expensive, there is no stipend or per diem for it, and you’re not allowed to write it off even though your job forces you


Poor little rich girl. Congresscritters get showered in benefits, perks, and do very little work.

Has this bartender ever done anything except gripe and gritch and try to call attention to herself? She deposed a 20-year establishment term for her first term by only having a little more than 16,000 votes. The media worships her, but for what reason?

Sandy, you've been in Congress less than 4 years. Everyone starts out at the bottom. Give it some time, learn how to use your public office for private gain, and it won't be long before you'll be enjoying wealth on par with the Speaker.

I guess the BU Economics Major / bartender didn't bother to check the salary of a Representative and the cost of living in the DC area and leasing a Tesla before spending other people's money to win the seat. BTW did she graduate with loan debt and, if so, has she paid back the loan or is she waiting for "forgiveness" since she, obviously, didn't learn anything to earn the degree.

Look, there is a solution to this. A simple dorm building could be provided to those in the Congress. A room with a bathroom. A bed, desk, table, chair and small table. Basically, the college single. They would pay the average rate for a dorm room rate. A microwave and small refrigerator should be adequate. Who the hell says you need to have a "second home"? Pray to God this creature never gets any real power. She is a total loser.

NEW YORK — Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was almost hidden from the street as she stood behind a nondescript building in Queens that a local nonprofit is buying with federal money. But people spotted her anyway, slowly trickling up the sidewalk and forming a small line to get a picture with her. The New York congresswoman wrapped up her visit, did a quick interview with a Bengali-language TV crew and posed for pictures with the people who were hovering nearby. For most members of Congress, such swings through the district are routine, an opportunity to connect with voters back home and remind

Three months ago in our quarterly list of the top 10 most likely Democratic candidates for president in 2024, we changed things up. For a while, we had been ranking only the candidates not named Joe Biden. In the seemingly unlikely scenario he didn’t run again, the idea was, here’s who would be next in line. But that scenario seemed to be growing more likely, so we decided to also include Biden on the list. The reason: There might come a time when the incumbent president isn’t the most likely nominee the next time around, for whatever reason. And his

President Joe Biden finds himself far underwater with voters, facing foreign crises and increasingly scary inflation figures — all of which attract comparisons to America's 39th president, Jimmy Carter. Carter is perhaps the president most closely associated with high inflation, and thanks to a legacy that includes a stiff 1980 primary challenge and a decisive reelection loss to Ronald Reagan, he's a president to whom no White House Democrat wants to be compared. "High inflation and rising gas prices are economic numbers that make people nervous, which tends to bring down presidential approval ratings — all of that is similar," said Robert

Rush Limbaugh's widow Kathryn has quietly put their palatial, Versailles-style Palm Beach mansion on the market for $175million - after snapping up the property for just $4million in the 1990s - even as experts warn it may so dated it could be just torn down by its new owners. The conservative radio legend, who died in February 2021, snapped up the 24,000-square-foot main house on Palm Beach's North Ocean Boulevard for $3.9 million in 1998, and has since bought up four neighboring properties to build a 2.7-acre estate, with an asking price of between $150 million and $175 million.

CNN’s John King pushes ‘grace’ for
Dems over inflation: ‘Governing is hard’

CNN host John King thinks voters are being too harsh on Democrats over inflation and is calling for them to be shown “grace” as the fractured party gets slammed over skyrocketing prices and catastrophic policies. With midterms looming in November when Democrats are widely expected to get thrashed and as Americans are crushed by out-of-control inflation, it has become the overriding factor for most voters and that has Democrats terrified. The higher inflation goes, the lower President Biden’s poll numbers are and they are already at historic lows. His disapproval rating on inflation is currently a whopping 70 percent, according to CNN’s Harry Enten who pointed out the disastrous number on Wednesday.
