"Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez moves into a luxury apartment complex that boasts infinity pool, Steinway piano and nearby Whole Foods, but has NO affordable housing units – and sits at the center of a neighborhood 'gentrification' fight"

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/ushome/index.html

Oh, poor little AOC, living in luxury, spending part of her $174,000 salary (plus more perks) as a member of Congress.

Remember how she 'couldn't afford rent' when moving to DC?

NOw luxury digs, upscale area.......

Did she move into lower cost neighborhoods to 'save them'? Nope...moved into a complex that likely wiped out a hundred 'affordable' units so it could be built.

Typical socialist...talks the talks but doesn't do the walk herself....

Like Bernie with his million dollar lakefront mansion in Vermont.......plus two other places!

What's at the link doesn't match what it says in your post. Making up stuff again, tele?

Anyway --

The nerve of that young lady with her degree from Boston Univ.(cum laude) Doesn't she know the Right Wing wants to see her eating gruel? -- like Oliver Twist.

Personally, I can't imagine that anyone can get a "luxury apartment" in NY or DC on a $174,000 salary -- I think the wingnuts believe that a "luxury apartment" for someone they don't like (hate? have contempt for?) has an undeserved inside toilet.

I wonder where Devin Nunez lives -- probably has 2 houses. I wonder how he can afford that on $174,000.

Isn’t it funny how you try to make conservatives live up to their principles, as they should, but God forbid a leftist live up to theirs. Hypocrite much?

Capitalistic leaders live in luxury and strive to create an environment/economy for everyone to live in luxury as well.

Socialistic leaders live in luxury but strive for everyone else to live modest and basic.

She should ask for her money back as she knows even less than the average PA lib does about economics.

I wasn't aware that conservatism had such a thing except that rich people should have their taxes reduced, there is no basic human right to medical care, brown people must be kept out of the USA (we have enough brown people).

Far be it for me to encourage conservatives to live down to their principles.

"rich people should have their taxes reduced"
Everyone should have their taxes reduced including the rich

"there is no basic human right to medical care"
Medical care is a product that must be purchased, varying types of medical care at different prices are offered depending on ones needs and ability to pay. In extreme situations Government provides subsidies for basic care to those who cannot afford it.

"brown people must be kept out of the USA (we have enough brown people)"
No, illegals should be kept out, if legal no problem at all.

Racist stupidity. It's the go-to around here.

No wonder you are always so wrong. You don’t understand the first thing about conservatives. Marking you absent.

As usual, you're rigid thinking blinds you to the distinction between:

1. Understanding that low-income housing should be available for people who need it

and

2. Believing that everyone should be required to live in low-income housing.

Typical socialist...talks the talks but doesn't do the walk herself....

While the hysterical flailing is most impressive, you haven't pointed out any actual hypocrisy here.

A congressional salary of $174k is sort of marginal for DC and the surrounding area (or any high-demand area for that matter) so it's not like she's drawing some obscene salary. She's living within reasonably comfortable means, which it's fair to expect is pretty much where we should want everyone to be.

Advocating for availability of low-income housing does not obligate one to live in low-income housing.

What you should really be upset about is that AOC's living arrangements include squatting rent free in your head.

Heck, she can afford a luxury place with infinity pool and all the stuff......

That's over $15,000 a MONTH in salary.

Just ironic that she moves to a luxury dig that was likely made by plowing down rows of older places that rented for $700/month and were low income housing for hundreds. In a 'redeveloped' area. I'm sure government workers making $35,000 a year aren't her neighbors.

The exact kind of re-development that she fought against for Amazon and it's move to her home district. And likely about the same salary as HERS.

AOC.....

Conservatives are doing to her what Liberals do for Trump. The more you attack her, the more sympathy she'll get from the Right. Liberals did that and helped re-elect Bush in 2004, and elect Trump in 2016.

If you wanna avoid an AOC America it's really simple on the Right:


1.)Acknowledge FAIRNESS. Not moochery, not whiners, but FAIRNESS. Admit that it's harder and harder for 40 hour a week Americans to have a basic middle class lifestyle. Look at wages, tax codes, HEALTH INSURANCE, etc and make some tweaks. Tweaks that WE CAN LIVE WITH because if we don't and the problem multiplies for another 5-7 years...... Americans will BEG for an AOC platform. You will turn America into a *gasp* "Socialist* country! Make tweaks now, avoid this.

2.)IF you do #1.....AOC still won't be happy but guess what. Democrats are also owned by Wall Street just like Repubs. Wall Street and the Democrat party will eventually make mince-meat out of her without turning her into a martyr.

Real simple.

Ignore her.

Fix our own house.

Let her politically die on the vine.

Reference my post in a few years.

Trump. Knows absolutely nothing about economics.

Another Meathead quirk. Posting links to articles that say nothing what the poster claims it does.

Your complete and utter failure to be able to grasp liberal principles does not render others to be a hypocrite. Take responsibility for you own failures and try harder. Don't blame others.
