Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, 28, called a rising “political star” by the New York Times, won the June 26 Democratic primary in New York’s 14th congressional district, defeating incumbent Congressman Joe Crowley, in what has been called the biggest upset victory in the 2018 midterm-election season.
Ocasio-Cortez is an avowed socialist and member of the Democratic Socialists of America. She advocates hard-Left policies such as gun control, an end to the use of fossil fuels, single-payer (government) healthcare system, universal healthcare (Medicare for All), tuition-free universities, forgiveness of all student debts, amnesty (“path to citizenship”) for illegal aliens, abolition of ICE (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement), and impeachment of President Trump.
On September 7, 2018, Ocasio-Cortez met with some New York construction workers to show her solidarity with the proletariat:
She is so pleased with the outfit she was wearing that she posted this pic of herself to Facebook:
This is how much socialist Ocasio-Cortez’s designer outfit cost, not including her underwear:
According to the webpage “Construction Worker Salary in New York,” the average annual salary of New York construction workers is $43,311, with salaries ranging from $22,498 to $74,251.
Wes Walker of Clash Daily points out that “If you split 43K 12 ways, that number comes out to $3609 a month — total pay” — the average monthly salary of NY construction workers.
In other words, socialist Ocasio-Cortez’s designer outfit costs the equivalent of one month’s salary of the construction workers she visited.
Paul Joseph Watson of Infowars reminds us that:
Back in July it was revealed that despite Ocasio-Cortez claiming to be a rough and ready working class girl from the Bronx, she mostly grew up in wealthy Westchester County.
Numerous mainstream media biographies of Ocasio-Cortez omit the fact that she basically grew up middle class, with her architect father able to send her to Boston University to study economics and international relations.
One wonders how disconnected Ocasio-Cortez is now to ordinary Americans given that she is swanning around in $3,500 outfits while claiming to be a working class hero.
