The de facto speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, believes that Congress should have pay raises to prevent them from abusing their offices and the trust of voters by making deals with lobbyists.

She said efforts to hike congressional pay “may not be politically popular to say, but honestly, this is why there’s so much pressure to turn to lobbying firms, and to cash in on member services after people leave because precisely of this issue.”

Cortez makes $174,000 per year doing nothing but spewing foolishness, while the members of our military lay down their lives for much less without complaining.

Alexandria Cortez is awesome and will make a great President one day. She scares these poor republicans out of their pants. On a trip just yesterday to one of Trumps concentration camps she proved that migrant women are being forced to drink water from toilets! When she becomes President one day in the future she will be a welcome change to the illegitmate low iq, corrupt, no morals , narcissist, and failed President that we have now. Sincerely David L. Rau

I take it back, she's the second worst our society has to offer. Fools that follow her hold that title. Those claims you think are proven were also disproven yesterday. I don't think you r mind allows anything but fake news to filter thru your tiny brain.

She is the best the democrats have to offer yet the worst our society has to offer.
