    Ocasio-Cortez Ticks Off Democrats for Not Paying Party Dues: ‘Deadbeat Cortez Should Pay Her Bills’

    Ocasio-Cortez Ticks Off Democrats for Not Paying Party Dues: ‘Deadbeat Cortez Should Pay Her Bills’

    “She’s always whining about people paying their fair share and here she is leaving her friends with the bill.”

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has ruffled feathers on both sides of the aisle since she started her tenure in Congress.

    Democrats are now ticked off because Ocasio-Cortez has not paid the $250,000 dues she owes to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC).

    Ocasio-Cortez has raised millions across the country but will not give any to the DCCC:

    “Sometimes the question comes: ‘Do you want to be in a majority or do you want to be in the minority?’” Rep. Gregory Meeks, D-N.Y., told Fox News, when asked about AOC’s stance. “And do you want to be part of a team?”

    Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) Chairwoman Cheri Bustos downplayed Ocasio-Cortez’s decision to shun dues and pointed to the record-breaking fundraising numbers the committee has notched without her.

    “That’s always up to individual members so I guess I don’t think about it one way or another,” Bustos said when asked about Ocasio-Cortez’s stance. “We’re raising record amounts of money from our members.”

    The DCCC declined to comment further on the matter of Ocasio-Cortez and her dues.

    Another Democrat was less diplomatic: “Deadbeat Cortez should pay her bills,” complained the Democratic source. “She’s always whining about people paying their fair share and here she is leaving her friends with the bill.”

    Ocasio-Cortez does not hide her distaste for the DCCC since they want to protect incumbents more than “insurgent progressive primary candidates.” She said:

    “For me personally, I’m not paying D-trip dues,” said Ocasio-Cortez, using slang for the DCCC and citing a “myriad of reasons.”

    “One, I don’t agree with the policy around blacklisting groups that help progressive candidates,” she said, referring to a DCCC effort to sideline vendors who assist challengers to members of Congress. “I think we need to evolve as a party and make room for that.”

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has helped Ocasio-Cortez raise money for those so-called progressive candidates. She endorsed Sanders for president in October.

    Ocasio-Cortez raised over $300,000 through online fundraising in 2019:

    She solicited nearly $18,000 in donations for Marie Newman, who is taking on current Illinois Rep. Dan Lipinski, a conservative Democrat who opposes abortion. She also gave Newman an additional $5,000 directly from her campaign account. Ocasio-Cortez also raised nearly $35,000 in online donations for progressive challenger Jessica Cisneros, who is trying to defeat Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-Texas.

    Instead, Cueller wants his fellow Democrats to concentrate on ousting Republicans and hold onto the House of Representatives. He hopes the Democrats “will start to get away from this circular firing squad.”

    Remember that Paul RINO and the GOP did and do the same thing. You want to be Chairman? It will cost you…

    It’s Trump’s fault because airport croissants are too expensive to buy AND pay those dues!

    A girl’s gotta eat in the overpriced wing of the airport, doesn’t she??

    Also, if she refuses to pay because she doesn’t like the rules, then it might be time for a good, thorough IRS audit of miss thang.

    Ten bucks says some shady hidden money that she’s been living from without declaring as income shows up.

    Won’t hurt her, her base was publik squrool edumakated. tHey thunk sshhhes grate.
    Maybe the dems will wipe out her district in the upcoming gerrymandering.
    However, I kind of like aoc splitting the party. It’s not like they’re winning hearts and minds anyway. Maybe this will weaken the dems so badly they don’t recovery for decades.

      I hear you, 4Fun, but when people speculate about the demise of the dems, as someone who has previously run for office, I can tell you that it’s GUARANTEED ballot spot on every ballot in the country, means it owns something too valuable for it to die.

      Time for a hostile takeover, like Cenk and Chakrabarti are trying to do.

      And ONLY competition keeps RINOs on the reservation. As long as the dems are out in left field, the RINOs can continue to betray Americans.
