    The youngest woman ever elected to congress has been serving drinks and tacos in Manhattan.

    Congresswoman-elect has said she will nor be able to afford an apartment in until her salary kicks in when she takes office in January.

    Ms Ocasio-Cortez is the youngest woman ever to be elected to congress, at the age of 29. Before her new job starts, she’ll have to find a place to live in the capital after months without a job,.

    That three-month window will be “very unusual, because I can't really take a salary,” Ms Ocasio-Cortez told The New York Times. “I have three months without a salary before I'm a member of Congress. So, how do I get an apartment? Those little things are very real.”

    While Ms Ocasio-Cortez has to scramble, she said that she and her partner will be fine, tweeting “don’t worry... we’re working it out!”

    However, in tweeting the article

    Ms Ocasio-Cortez currently lives in the Bronx, New York, and previously in a in Manhattan, fixing food and drinks, before her . For the next few months while she prepares for her job in congress, she won’t have an income.

    Washington, DC is the city in the nation, and Ms Ocasio-Cortez made the point that the obstacles such as this can block low-income individuals from seeking office.

    “There are many little ways in which our electoral system is not even designed for working-class people to lead,” she said.

    Ms Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign did not accept corporate donations, and she spent . Her opponent, Joe Crowley, spent $3.4 million.

    According to Rentcafé, the average rent for a 1-bedroom in the , New York is $1,764 per month. In , the average rent for a 1-bedroom is $1,996.

  2. I love her even more and this makes her even more appealing to millenials. The fact that Fox was making fun of her for this proves how out of touch they are with the current generation and that will be their downfall

    The irony is that Shapiro and the like are now infamous for ducking debates in turn, revealing what a silly stunt this all was.

    Anyway, as I said in the convo, this is basically the one percent laughing while twirling their 'staches. All that's left is them betting their gold plated blimps on how long the pauper can last in their high society.

    It fits the narrative of her being a know nothing bitch who would get smoked in an unsafe district.

    I think Repubs are open to outsiders.

    I wouldn't be surprised if he's being a Tsundre towards her: externally detests her, but internally loves her.

    On another note, anyone notice that when ever Fox News or CNN tries to discredit AOC, they end up giving her not just media attention/spotlight, but also make the cause she and other progressives fight for that much credible?

    It's sort of like how they handled Donald Trump, except this time it's actually legitimate and not a joke. I seriously hope they keep doing this since we know MSNBC (right now) won't hold that many progressives on their channel and rather only focus on how terrible/obnoxious the current administration is, and a lot of times they are ineffective with doing only that.

    True, the flipside is that only works in her favor as long as she responds strongly yet with a certain calmness. Thus far it is looking great though

    If you laugh at AOC not being able to afford rent, you're laughing at the American poor.

    yepp, it's a mixture of the both. she responds strongly, and we have a unified front with advocating for her and other progressives if they support the policies we want to be implemented.

    also @Pliskin she just recently spoke against Nancy Pelosi:




    this is what this country needs, i swear

    Well maybe if they weren't so lazy, they could pick themselves up by the bootstrap (still no idea what that's supposed to mean) and actually start busting ass so they can pay their bills

    Always hard to tell with you considering you bash people with left-leaning opinions every couple of posts.

    The job guarantees program is confusing and I read at least a paragraph about it on wikipedia.

    Crazy as it sounds, universal basic income is probably the closer reality.

    Also, I'd forgotten frank underwood tried the same thing.

    Yup DC is expensive. I recommend renting a room in the Oxon Hill, MD area in the meantime. When Joe Biden was a Senator he used to take the train from Scranton, Delaware every day into town granted that is closer than New York.
