Self-proclaimed Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez-Stalin (D-NY) is suddenly very, very rich.
First, came her $174,000 salary as a US Congresswoman.
Then, her royalties from her absurd movie deal with Netflix.
Now, she’s the proud new owner of a luxury apartment in downtown Washington, D.C. that–get this–makes sure poor people aren’t allowed inside.
From The Washington Examiner:
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., recently moved into a luxury apartment complex in Washington, D.C. that does not offer the affordable housing units that were a key plank in the New York congresswoman’s campaign platform.
Ocasio-Cortez, 29, who said in November that she was concerned about being able to afford rent in D.C., now earns a $174,000 annual salary and is living in a newly built high-rise in the city’s Navy Yard area, the Washington Free Beacon reported last week.
The freshman congresswoman, a self-described socialist, campaigned on a platform to expand affordable housing, and her controversial Green New Deal proposal promises “Safe, affordable, adequate housing” for all.
But Ocasio-Cortez’s new building — built by leading D.C. developer WC Smith — is part of a luxury complex whose owners specifically do not offer affordable units under Washington, D.C.’s Affordable Dwelling Units program. The Washington Examiner is not naming the building or complex. …
AOC is just your typical Socialist. She’ll cry about how “unfair” American capitalism is while living high on the hog because of capitalism.
And the instant the money starts rolling in, she keeps it all for herself and her corrupt boyfriend.
This is hypocrisy at its finest.
