-edited

AOC discusses the meaning of a raise. Let's tune in.

Please consider this amusing Tweet.

Yes, I understand her point about inflation.

But if we paid AOC what she was worth, she would owe us money.

Politicians turn to lobbying because they're greedy and lack integrity,not because they're broke,they pretend to "write"books,start "charitable foundations", become "members of the board"all is just a way to launder bribes.Truman was the last politicians that left office with some modicum of integrity!

Btw $4500 is beyond what the average worker is getting. AOC has officially crossed over into being a political elite.
