Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants what’s best for everyone, including lots of “free” stuff, provided of course, it’s paid for with OPM (Other People’s Money).
When it comes to sharing HER cash, though, in the grand tradition of socialists everywhere, what’s yours is hers and what’s hers is hers. Spreading HER wealth around is a horse of a different color.
From The New York Post:
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is being hailed as the new face of the Democratic Party after vanquishing Queens party boss Joe Crowley in Tuesday’s primary, but one former co-worker isn’t jumping on her bandwagon.
Most of the staff at Flats Fix, the East 16th Street taco and tequila bar, say nice things about Sandy, as they knew her for the four years she worked there, until she quit six months ago to run for Congress.
But one waitress has a bad memory of working with Ocasio-Cortez, 28, as Ocasio-Cortez tended bar during the very busy Cinco de Mayo celebration in 2017.
At the end of the night, when it came time to split the $560 in tips she had gotten at the bar, Ocasio-Cortez gave the waitress only $50. After the waitress complained to her manager, her take was doubled to $100, a source said.
“It says so much about her character,” said my source. “From that point on, I wouldn’t talk to her. I couldn’t look at her.”
How can this be? Aren’t socialists all about “putting people first?” “People” perhaps, but individuals? Their property can be stolen, and if they don’t agree, they can be imprisoned or put up against a wall and shot.
Miss Obama 2.0 knows the playbook.
One other question: why did she call herself “Sandy?” What was that all about? Was she trying to build her “I worked as a bartender” woman of the people narrative without anyone finding out that she was a commie community organizer (I know-redundant) looking to pursue raw political power? Was she hoping that people wouldn’t find out about incidents like this failure to share tips, as in “that wasn’t me. It was Sandy?”
Never forget. The Left lies.
