Ocasio, Ocasio, Wherefore art thou a Continued Supporter of the Monied Elite

leave a comment »

Any member of an imagined American Jacobin Party would find Congressperson Ocasio-Cortez only a diverse exemplar of the status quo, a multiculti offer to keeping things the same for the Power and Money Elite.

Congressperson Ocasio-Cortez is only going to help the Power and the Monied elite because she will only attack middle income as part of her design to help lower income. Almost as if the Director of the program where I work should get nine thousand dollars less a year, so that both office clerical help can each get three thousand dollars more a year. Where does the other three thousand dollars go, to raising the salaries of congresspersons. I have yet to find that she is anything but a lot less than genuine.

Why cannot Congressperson Ocasio support the 15 dollar per hour minimum without capping the top level staff in her office at 80k. The staff currently paid 80k would have been paid 125 to 150k, but are now capped at 80k. So, instead of making this a fight against the monied elite, it becomes an attack on the mid-Middle Class from lower income. A great example of how the Power and the Money use members of the middle  and lower income strata to drive a wedge further and deeper between lower income and middle income. I genuinely do not know, so please answer, if someone has the facts: has she offered to lower her salary, not to take it, or to put some of it in a pool to pay her staff?

Great job–the devil always comes in the guise most appealing to us–beware if you like her, which I did. Beware if you put too much faith in any politician.
