Ocasio-Cortez on Schultz: Why are billionaires who want to run for president never told to ‘work their way up’?
By Tal Axelrod - 01/30/19 10:37 AM EST

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) on Wednesday ripped former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz over his possible independent presidential bid, suggesting his lack of political experience pointed to a double standard.

“Why don’t people ever tell billionaires who want to run for President that they need to ‘work their way up’ or that ‘maybe they should start with city council first’?” the 29-year-old congresswoman tweeted.

The freshman lawmaker was referencing criticism she received during her House campaign last year that she should have aspired to a more local position before running for federal office.

Because for the most part...whether it's in business or politics they have already "worked their way up".

The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

AOC is the 'gift' that will keep giving ...including to centrist Democrat candidates.

We should thank God for her.   If she didn't exist, we'd be better inventing her.
