Ocasio-Cortez Hits Back At Fox News Host Who Slammed Her Over ‘Living Wage’ [Video]

A Fox News host accused Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Sunday of imitating “communism and socialism” by redistributing her office budget in order to raise the salaries of her lowest-level staffers.

The New York Democrat announced last week that her staffers will make between $52,000 and $80,000. “It’s likely one of the highest entry-level salaries on the Hill,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.

“We pinch pennies elsewhere, but it’s worth every dime to pay a living wage.”




Ocasio-Coetez also targeted Senator John Cornyn saying in part,  “the GOP is calling paying a living wage “socialism,” a Republican Senator full-on quoted National Fascist Party leader and Hitler ally Benito Mussolini like it’s a Hallmark card.”
