Ugh…

Well, it doesn’t look like we’ll be getting our wish of an AOC-less House next year.

Odds are good that she’ll probably get re-elected.

Not because she’s the best and smartest candidate – but more because she’s been able to raise MILLIONS over the past two years.

Yes, you heard that right…

Millions.

Of course, you may ask yourself, wasn’t AOC the Democrat that preached against “dark money” and lobbyists?

Yes. Yes, she was…

When she talked about voting in favor of a pay raise for members of Congress, she tweeted out, “Yep. Voting against cost of living increases for members of Congress may sound nice, but doing so only increases pressure on them to keep dark money loopholes open. This makes campaign finance reform *harder.* ALL workers deserve cost of living increases, incl min wage workers.”

Of course, when somebody works less than HALF of the year (Congress members average only 138 “legislative days”) and makes $174,000 for doing so – voting for their own raise seems disingenuous…

But saying politicians would take less money from PACs and lobbyists if they got a raise is a ridiculous statement.

Rules For THEE…

Is AOC saying politicians would be LESS corrupt if they made an extra $435 a month?

Because that’s what a 3% pay raise would amount to for Congress members…

$435 a month.

With the pay raise, that would put them at almost $1300 a day they work – or $15,000 a month.

Of course, we’re not here to talk about the exorbitant amount of money our elected officials make…

We’re here to talk about how AOC – somebody that’s always railed against lobbyists and PACs – has been raising money through her OWN political action committee.

How much money?

Almost $2 MILLION dollars since she started pulling in cash a few weeks after she got elected in 2018.

$2 million is a LOT of money…

And very hypocritical.

How can you tell other politicians that they shouldn’t take “dark money” when your PAC donations are the very definition of dark money? You don’t know where it comes from!

Rules For ME…

That’s why it surprised a LOT of people when she tweeted, “The rumors are true. Today we’re announcing the Courage to Change PAC – and we need your help. We are pushing the envelope in DC by rewarding those who reject lobbyist money, fight for working families,& welcome newcomers. Change takes courage. Let’s go:”

Where’s that, AOC?

Heading straight down Hypocrite Trail?

This is ridiculous – and we’d bet dollars to donuts that she wouldn’t see any problem with this whatsoever.

That’s what the Left does…

They accuse the Right of doing something and either go ahead and do that exact same thing afterwards – or news comes out that it’s something they’ve already done.

It’s a political tactic straight out of the Nazi’s playbook and the Democrats use of it would make Joseph Goebbels proud.

If we’ve said it once, we’ve said it a hundred times…

With the Dems, it’s “rules for THEE by not for ME.”

And AOC is showing us a PRIME example of that.

The only thing we can hope for is for her constituents in her district to realize what she is doing and use their collective voting power to get her out of office in 11 months.

Though…

With $2 million in her pocket – she just might pull off the win.

Let’s hope not…
