AOC Revolts Against Pelosi’s Iron Grip, Refuses To Contribute $250K To Nancy’s Political Slush Fund

Alexandria Ocasio Cortez is revolting from
Nancy Pelosi and the iron grip she has over the Democratic Party and she is hitting Pelosi
where it hurts – the pocketbook. Pelosi’s power comes from her money and
her ability to raise enormous sums with the snap of a finger. Most Dems in the House deed and depend on
Pelosi but not AOC. AOC is a social media star and can raise serious
money off one tweet. So good Dems like that Pelosi makes pay more
into her political slush fund for House candidates. All have to contribute but on a sliding scale
and at Nancy’s discretion. So believe me when I tell you Nancy is furious
AOC will not contribute to the fund this year and that Pelosi is terrified that AOC still
plans to primary Dems. “I don’t see the sense in giving a quarter-million
dollars to an organization that has clearly told people like me that we’re not welcome,”
Ocasio-Cortez told Fox News defending her decision to stiff Pelosi. “It’s pretty nuts — $250,000 for a freshman
member. Can you imagine being 30 years old and getting
a bill for $250,000? I still have $20,000 in student loan debt,”
she said. “This is a place that should be for everyone,”
Ocasio-Cortez said outside the Capitol complex on Friday. “It should be for working people. It should be for everyday people who aren’t
connected to big money.” “When progressive, working-class candidates
look at running for office, organizations like the DCCC dissuade them,” the announcement
said. “We need voices that will lift up those
candidates, not shoot them down. That’s why we’re founding the Courage
to Change PAC.” Then she terrified the Democrats by saying
she would use her PAC and online fundraising prowess to primary Dems. “Seventy percent of Americans live in a
safe blue seat, or a safe red seat, which means the only choice that they have realistically
is in their primary election,” she said. “The idea that we should take democracy
away from people is one that I fundamentally disagree with.” “I’m comfortable with that,” she said
about the coming blowback from the Dems. “I want to earn my seat every two years. I want to earn the right to have this job.” “I think I’m an independent thinker within
the Democratic Party for sure. I do things that are unusual and unorthodox” “Washington is so much about Republican
versus Democrat,” Ocasio-Cortez added. “We don’t realize that some of the largest
plurality of voters in America are neither.” “They identify as independent. It doesn’t mean that they are moderate. It doesn’t mean that they are half Democrat
and half Republican. It means that they think a lot of the system
is BS.”
