A recent change in wages is how Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is spreading her toxic socialism through Washington. Now she being called out for it.
Pete Hegseth, a co-host of “Fox & Friends” over the weekend, blasted the congresswoman for blatantly displaying her leftist doctrine and then called her out for not committing completely and lowering her salary.
Ocasio-Cortez started the upheaval when she declared that she would be offering positions within her office at the increased starting pay of $52,000/year.
However in order to make this possible, the freshman congresswoman must take from those who work harder, capping her senior staff at $80,000 a year.
Hegseth slammed the move on air saying, “Your entry level intern is making 52 grand, while your chief of staff ― who has a very important role in a congressional office ― now is capped at 80, as opposed to the actual market rate on Capitol Hill which is closer to $150,000. So everyones’s between 52 and 80. It’s actually socialism and communism on display.”
Picking apart AOC’s move further, Hegseth chastised her for not deciding to also reduce her own congressional salary. He questioned, “will you share some of that money, Miss Congresswoman, with the rest of your staff who is not making as much as you?”
Of course, the budding socialist has not responded to that inquiry.
