AOC thinks members of Congress, including herself, deserve a bigger paycheck.

Ocasio-Cortez claimed that ’all workers’ deserve a pay raise to balance out the increased cost of living, including congresswomen making $174,000 per year. The congresswoman argued that the current salary of members of Congress needs to stay on par with the rising cost of living in order to prevent members from being tempted by ’dark money loopholes.’

The minimum pay for a member of Congress is $174,000/yr, with more pay for party leaders in specific positions (around 190-200k range iirc). That isn't enough, Ms. Cortez? If no, then why?

Lady, you make $174k/year minimum. That puts you in the top 5% income earners in the US and top 1% in the world. You also say that the rich need to pay their fair share. How about you practice what you're preaching and pay more taxes instead of asking for a raise? Unless you meant none of what you said.

Just based on the fact that she is a democratic socialist this is an asinine proposal. They make plenty of money, it’s one of the most Influential jobs on the planet for Christ sakes.

She says “rely on a straight salary”... as if any capable human couldn’t live incredibly comfortably on the salary she makes right now. Sounds an awful lot like entitlement to me.

So freshman Republicans want term limits while freshman Democrats want more taxpayer money for themselves. Yet the Repubs are "fascists" and the Dems are "for the people." It makes sense if you don't think about it.

I say we make their pay half of what it is and give them a taste of what more than 50% of the country subsists off of.

that fact that a socialist, railing against the "1%", can make 174,000 a year and still advocate for more money for herself is one of the most telling things I have seen in a while. smooth AOC, really smooth...
