Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez upset by cost of living in Washington D.C. and blames ‘electoral system’

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just made history by becoming the youngest woman elected to Congress. But seriously, how did this chick get elected?? The dumbest stuff comes out of her mouth and now she’s whining about the cost of living in Washington D.C.

Ocasio-Cortez told The New York Times her transition period will be “very unusual, because I can’t really take a salary. 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.” She said she saved money before leaving her job at the restaurant, and planned accordingly with her partner. “We’re kind of just dealing with the logistics of it day by day, but I’ve really been just kind of squirreling away and then hoping that gets me to January.”

She’s also blaming the electoral system for her plight.

Uhhhh, what does that have to do with ANYTHING??

Supporters were quick to defend her, saying she really meant to say the political system.

Others, not so sympathetic.

Maybe Ocasio-Cortez should have planned a little bit better before she decided to run for Congress? Everyone knows D.C. is an expensive place to live. Or maybe she was just waiting on a handout…
