Oh, to be a young rich socialist on Capitol Hill.
Rep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez doesn't have the same problems we have.
You're worried about paying your rent and not being audited by the IRS.
She's worried about... $7 croissants at the airport.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez used her shock over a pricey croissant to call for a fair minimum wage Monday on Twitter.
“Croissants at LaGuardia are going for SEVEN DOLLARS A PIECE,” the Democrat tweeted from the New York airport.
“Yet some people think getting a whole hour of personal, dedicated human labor for $15 is too expensive??” she continued.
$7 croissants? Where the hell is she eating at?! A chocolate croissant at Starbucks is $2.75. A croissant at Dunkin Donuts is $2.49. If you get it with bacon, egg and cheese it's $5.89.
Is she complaining about the cost of food at a 5 star restaurant?! Where the hell did she go?
Even still, her claims about minimum wage are just wrong. If we raise the minimum wage the cost of everything else will go up to and suddenly the new minimum wage will be just as valuable as the only minimum wage, but now the money in your bank account will be worth less.
That's called inflation.
You'd think AOC, a woman who claimed to study economics at Boston University, would understand inflation. But she doesn't. Because she didn't really study economics.
As activist Donny Ferguson put it, "She took 12 credit hours in economics, in classes like "Economics of Less-Developed Regions," as part of her international relations degree. 'I have a degree in economics' is another example of AOC's pattern of compulsive lying."
So there you have it.
Enjoy your croissant, Frenchy.
